I made a custom Big Shot die for $45 on sale. I highly recommend it if you want something a little more personalized :-)

Some years are upgrade years
Over the past few years we have been doing little renos to our house. It's almost twenty years old and we've lived here for twelve. Last year we got a new sidewalk, and thanks to a hailstorm, a new roof. This summer I am hoping to have the wood trim replace...

Here's to 2015!
For many years now, I haven't been good at sending Christmas cards. I think a few trickled out though. Over the holidays I made a lot of special cards for friends, and you'll be seeing more of them soon. Here's one for a budgie friend of mine: I really enjo...

Lucky Loot
It's been a while since I blogged about the fabulous British papercraft magazines that I load up on every time I visit Chapters. The loot that a whole bunch of Christmas issues came with was crazy! Even more impressive was that the Christmas issues were on ...

Hey Zazzlers! Ever wish you could thank your customers? I recently sold 270 of these address labels.

Two Scherenschnitte Cards
Scherenschnitte - what the heck is that? It's one way of saying papercuttings! I really enjoy making silhouettes and over the Christmas break I made a whole bunch of them. Drawing and cutting a silhouette is harder than it looks, because of the lack of deta...

Wish I had known about the gel sticks before spending $$ on gelatos! Ah well.

Story
Introduction
Every day we're surrounded by the natural world...but often we don't stop to notice it. I do, however. With an eye for beauty in the quietest and most overlooked places, I share what I see through original art and photography. Please feel free to drop me a note or visit my website at http://www.purple-pony.com. Check out my blog at http://purpleponyart.livejournal.com too, and if you care to follow me on Facebook, go right ahead at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Purple-Pony-Art/20613663310.

I have been a customer of Ljubica's for years now. I trust her expertise in art supplies and framing. One piece that she framed won a second place ribbon in its class at the Calgary Stampede Western Lifestyles craft show! I find her location convenient and she never hesitates to order something for me if she doesn't have it available. Although the shop is small, it is packed with good quality supplies such as Golden paints, Copic markers and Bee Paper.

We had a good experience with Harvest Hills Auto Select. Our friends had previously used it, and thought it was OK. The commenter who mentioned the courtesy cars is right, although they could be more polite about it. They are just older, no frills courtesy cars. The shop is a little more expensive, but it's a bonus that they are close to where we live and we didn't have to get up early or leave work early to drop off the car. It needed new brakes, calipers and rotors. Parts were about $500 and labour $600. The work was done and done well, no complaints. The staff were friendly and took the time to explain what was needed as well as the bill.
