Activity


Well, Monday is my workshop. I've kind of taken a break from The Livngroom since Saturday, March 11th. It was Janette's first time back there since before the Big November Fiasco and let's just say there was some unwanted drama. Face it, is there ANY OTHER kind?

At least we had a good time in Toronto last Friday, St. Paddy's Day and a WONDERFUL visit with our pal, Doo Doo the Clown! I hadn't seen him since November of 2011 when he was at the Royal Winter Fair. We thought we'd just be meeting him outside in front of the Better Living Centre because Wizard's World is one of those events where adults aren't normally allowed inside without KIDS!! But Doo Doo went beyond the call of duty and allowed us IN FOR FREE and we got to watch his show as well as wander around to look at the rides and take pictures.

They had the same carousel that was at Nathan Phillip's Square back in December. Will I EVER get the chance to ACTUALLY RIDE it?? Back in December all the rides were closed because it was TOO WINDY. And at Wizard's world we didn't want to take advantage or overstep our boundaries. Besides it appeared that only KIDS were on the rides.

I am thinking that if I can haul my lazy ass out of bed early enough on Monday morning I might go to the mall and consult the travel agent about my plane ticket to La-La-Land and maybe finally get to use my Torrid gift cards for some new clothes. I'm afraid I've allowed myself to lapse into a deeper depression this past month or so. Before the big fiasco on the 11th there were several incidents that caused me to have to leave early. I HATE BEING UPROOTED! I just want to be able to stay in my zone all day!!

I am an artist who enjoys working in a variety of mediums, especially embroidery and creating dolls and soft sculptures. I have had a lifelong fascination with carousels and have traveled extensively through the years, usually with the National carousel Association, to see as many as possible.

My husband Dave and I have been happily married since July of 2002 and I am a full-time student who still manages to crank out and sell as many of my creations as possible in my spare time.

I have Asperger's Syndrome and the creative dream of somehow creating an "Autism Awareness" carousel with art and animals designed and created by people who are on the autism spectrum. My vision includes it as the centrepiece of a cultural centre which includes a toy museum, gift shop and Victorian Tea Room!

Current Residence: Oshawa, Ontario, canada
Favourite genre of music: rock
Favourite style of art: fantasy
