Creative Expressions Art Nights

I have a new crafty, kewl peep! Yay! Christie got in touch with me awhile ago. She's a fellow crafter and upcycler - yup we have tons in common! She facilitates an ongoing event called Creative Expressions Art Nights. The Creative Expressions Art Nights are a free inclusive event open to all artistic skill levels, ages, and demographics, however event participants must identify as having either a mental health and/or addictions issue. Such a wonderful idea! Her workshops are funded by Consumer Initiative Fund and Vancouver Coastal Health.

I dropped in this Wednesday to check it out. It was a blast! Christie thought I could be a guest presenter at a future workshop. I'm totally in! So next is to send off some workshop ideas and plan a date.

Here's my new friend Jewel with her finished card. The night's project was DIY cards and bookmarks.

And here's Christie. She's pretty darn awesome. We've become fast friends! She's giving a workshop through Trade School Vancouver. I'm hoping I can make it! Plus we talked about facilitating a workshop together. And I'll do a guest spot at an upcoming Creative Expressions Art Nights. Crafters are the best kind of peeps!

Here's to the beginnings of a great friendship and tons of craftiness!
