Weathering the Storm

Walking along Yonge Street, north of Lawrence, I spotted a cool sign today. "If you want to see the sunshine, you have to weather the storm", it read, and it's so true. Literally speaking - in our climate, at least - and metaphorically, too. When I'm going through a burst of inspiration and make a whole range of cards that are beautiful, and intricate, and eye-catching, I leave a bit of a tornado of paper scraps and card stock behind that I first need to clear before I can tackle the next creative sunburst. Also, I'm bound to make the occasional cards you don't like in order to arrive at the ones that will become bestsellers. And outside of card-making, as a mom, I sometimes have to deal with tantrums and crankiness that will make my baby's rays of sunshine - his smiles and his curiosity - even more special. What do I do to weather the storms in my life? I'm creative. I craft, and I dance. Yup, you read that right. I'm not just a paper artist, I'm also a dancer. (And the too are related!)

It's that time of year again when my dance company is taking the stage. This year's show is entitled Weathering the Storm: we dance our way through the seasons, and all types of weather they throw at us! From the snow storms we're so familiar with as Canadians to spring rain, you'll see it all on stage. We hope to brighten your day with 22 original numbers in styles ranging from ballet, to tap, to jazz.
