CHINATOWN REMIXED
it's all i'm thinking about right now.
art is installed.



promos done.
(the ottawa sun/ now open with denis armstrong)

it's going to be SUNNY for the festival - first time in three years!

i am so grateful for to the Chinatown Remixed  Board of Directors - they've been all over it,  handling, organizing, managing, liaising, spreading the word - they are champs!

i am also thrilled to pieces to be paired with Karen and Leigh of High Jinx.  these are smart, savvy, powerful women.  this wonderful second-hand furniture/ curiosity shop is their vehicle for funding their own community and homelessness initiative - helping people in the community find homes and furnish their homes.  in their own words, "the way it was done in Little House on the Prairie" - neighbours helping neighbours in need.  i am inspired and in awe of their philosophy and business model.  (i've also purchased a side table and a set of mid-century steak knives in the past 2 days, this place is a treasure trove!)

i've got tomorrow off & i'm ready to party.
look out Chinatown!
