February's featured artist: Amanda Maxwell

February's featured artist: Amanda Maxwell:
February featured artist display

February's featured artist in the gift shop is Amanda Maxwell, one of our jewelry designers and also (in the interests of full disclosure) the writer of these blog posts.

It will therefore not surprise you to know that Amanda is an artist extraordinaire, whose delightful creations bring light and beauty to the shelves of the gift shop ... and unique style to the necks and wrists of those who choose to adorn themselves. 

... please do check out the gift shop to see if her/my display of wire/metal/fibre wearable art is worth the hyperbole :)

seafood for supper?

Not quite, but here's this week's menu.

Monday: Ravioli in cream and garlic mushroom sauce
Tuesday: Butter chicken with rice
Wednesday: Baked potatoes with cheese dip
Thursday: Pilaff
Friday: minestrone soup with bread, cheese and pate

So culinary life's not very exciting this month but I'm heading into the second half of my certificate course with all its reading and homework prep, so we're living off the frozen goodies amassed since Christmas.
We'll eat well, but predictably with a side order of deja vu.
Bon appetit!
Did I mention I made trifle today?

what me? featured artist

Yes - me, featured artist in the Blackberry Gift Shop inside the Port Moody Arts Centre this month. I walked in to my shift this month to find this beautiful display of my work
The day before I'd sent an email apologising for having nothing new for the shelves and wondered if I should just pull out of showcasing my work
The display looks lovely - thank you guys :)

a snack

Have a lovely day. :-)
