Nov.8 Art is Everywhere

Hi there,

Still haven't bought anything new, sticking to my guns and all that jazz.

Yesterday my art was more knitting and this time I did it with one of my most creative knitter friends, Su.  She does things like create gnome villages and felt them, as well as knit me a gorgeous shawl for my birthday, etc.  So I was able to combine some friend outreach with some crafting. 

As for today, I walked to work, and walking through Parkdale and Dundas West areas I noticed how much art is on the go everywhere.  I'm still not too sure what kind of art I'll make of today, but I am doing a couple of artsy things, though they don't really count, since I'm being an audience member.  I'm going to check out 4 artists talk about their mental health experiences and how it's related to their art as part of the Rendezvous With Madness Film Festival.  A very cool and free event.  The films in it are amazing, varied, and very reasonably priced.  Apres artist talk, I'm going to watch some pay-what-you-can comedy.  I'm sure these events will inspire me to something artistic.  And, if it's not something brand new, I still have novel editing and knitting to finish up.

I guess I need to get crack-a-lacking on my No Spend Week.  I haven't had any feedback from Consumption Rebellion and I see she just posted after a long while away.  I've just sent her a note.  I'd like do do my No Spend Week from Nov. 23 or 24 for a week.  A firm commitment and specifics to follow soon!
