Paper crafters know all about faith. We enter swaps and mail our precious creations afar. Sometimes we put our faith in the post office and things go horribly wrong.

Robson Square, crowded with entertainment, ice skating, the big screen, Ziptrek, the BC Pavilion, and of course the Vancouver Art Gallery.
Me? Not on your life! Check out the Ziptrek video link here.
The Hudson's Bay Company, where you can line up for an hour to buy your mittens!
Go Canada Go!

Not really - we common folks can't get close to Olympic Village. Just outside the Village, though, are some of the "Houses", where the public is welcome to enjoy being with the athletes.
Canadian Hockey House, proving to be a popular place to drink beer and sing loud.
Sochi House (Russia), originally built for Expo '86, usually home to Vancouver's Science World

Although I don't have any event tickets, I'll be checking out some of the Olympic stuff over the next few weeks. There is a free tram running from the Olympic Village at the foot of Cambie Street over to Granville Island, one of my favourite places in Vancouver.
It is a bit ironic that we borrowed this train from Belgium, when it is built by Bombardier, a Canadian company, but then Europeans have been investing in state of the art transportation for years! For more information you can read about it here.

When I was in Montreal (a year ago!!) visiting my sister, Dianne, we played with lots of techniques, and I came home with a lot of unfinished pieces.
This one began life as a spritzed watercolour background, masked with torn masking tape. Sorry, the stamp is a mystery to me, one of my sister's. I think I coloured it with alcohol markers.
