And it’s snowing! Maybe we’ll get a white Christmas after all. I am very excited to see my family and give them the presents I’ve bought and made. I’m almost ready and just have to get one last minute present, in case my knitting project doesn’t get finished in time today. Oh and I need to get Harley a little something because he has been a very good boy this year. I’m going to forego the Show and Tell this week, for now, because I just don’t have the time to put it together before we leave for our parent’s house. I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday with family and friends.
Haha… Here’s another photo of Harley in his sweater. He got it from my sister and doesn’t really like to wear it itl, but it’s so funny to put it on him and watch him walk around.
On Sunday Dec 13 I got an early Christmas present from Kathryn. She took me to see Matthew Good’s Live at the Concert Hall taping. I was so excited to go and see him play songs from the new album Vancouver. I have been fan of his since the first album “Last of the Ghetto Astronauts” came out. I’ve seen more of his concerts than any other artist and he has never disappointed at a show.
We had 2nd row seats and the camera guy was sitting in front of me, so it was really like a front row seat, since he was up and crouched near the stage. I can’t remember the exact set list from the show but he did play Great Whales of the Sea, Born Losers & Strange Days which are some of my favourites. There is just something about his music that pulls at my emotions. I think he is a brilliant writer and applaud that he is who he is, and doesn’t try to bend to what a “rock star” should be.
I wish I could’ve brought my camera inside, but it will air on Feb 23 at 10pm on Bravo. I will probably be on camera, since pink hair seems to attract a lot of attention. I don’t mind though
It was a great night and such a thoughtful gift. Thank you so much Kathryn. You really are a great friend and I’m lucky to have you.
Some fun news to share. A project that I have been working on has just launched it’s newly redesigned website in time for the holidays, Shkank.com. If you haven’t been to the Shkank store on Yonge St you have to get down there. The dresses and designs make you feel like a kid in a candy store. They will work with you to create a custom dress or you can choose from one of their many “one-of-a-kind” pieces. The designers, Rod Philpott, Phi and Trevor are very talented and creative guys who can whip up the most insane outfits in a matter of hours.
Check out their completely redesigned site, done by The Digital Beach and make sure you if you are in Toronto you take a trip to the store to check it out, you will not be disappointed. Make sure you tell them Carly sent you
“Soon the bells will start
And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart.”
I am so excited! Chad and I are off to do the last of our shopping and then all I need to do is bake and finish wrapping. This might be the first year that I’m not scrambling on Christmas Eve day to finish up. Fingers crossed.
What do you have left to do before Christmas?
