If you’re staying in town this weekend, there are two events I’d recommend checking out.

My lovely friend Kirsti Wakelin, has been getting all sorts of wonderful reviews for her illustration work in a children’s book called, “Looking for Loons”. This Saturday December 8th is the official launch of the book at Christianne’s Lyceum of Literature and Art, with the author in attendance. If you have any kids in need of a present this Christmas why not pick up a copy of the book, AND have it signed by Kirsti. More details below.

One of the “craftshows” (really an artisan and designer sale) I look forward to at this time of year, is the Shiny Fuzzy Muddy. It’s a group show and sale featuring a nice variety of merchandise by local artists, designers and, crafts people. It starts today at 5pm and is on until Sunday. For a full list of participating artists check out their site.
