Interview with Ming Pao Canada Newspaper

I love the randomness of the crafty stuff I do... From being asked to author a book, speak at an event, craft with 'crap' with various peeps and organizations to being interviewed about what I do. I received an email this week from Judy at Ming Pao Daily News, a Chinese language newspaper in Richmond. She saw the listing of upcycling workshops I give with the City of Richmond and asked if I would be interested in being interviewed. And of course I said yes!

We met at Capilano University where I work full time these days (I love my new gig - Cap U is awesome! Yay!) and we sat down for an hour talking about the workshops, what I do and a potential DIY to include with the interview. Judy was unbelievably lovely!

She's hoping to have the feature in this Monday's edition. I'll post it once I have a copy. So exciting! Note: the interview will be in Chinese so I'll have no idea what it says. So great to see the reach of DIYs and upcycling.

Stay tuned for further info about the interview. Judy also thought we could do another feature on my side gig, Thrifty By Design. Or maybe further DIYs. Sometimes that one random, out there request can turn into something pretty darn fabulous. Plus I met an awesome and fun new BFF. Score!

And after a day filled with thoughtful notes from my coworkers (I am truly lucky to work where I do - so many kick butt peeps plus an amazing boss) then the interview with Judy, hearing from my very sappy husband and then this snail mail package from the hugely kewl people behind Fieldtripp. Life is good!

I'm adding Fieldtripp to my roster of people who do kewl things. They share moments, not things and are so darn lovely. I've never met them in person just via social media but man they ROCK. Hopefully one day we can make crafty magic happen together.

So here's to random opportunities, connecting with awesome people and organizations and to having a heart filled with love and joy. And to think it's just gonna get better. Wow!
