June 2018 Club Reveal – Paris at Dawn

Yikes! I’m very sorry that I’m so behind in posting the club reveals and wanted to offer a little insight as to what’s been happening lately. At the end of June, we decided to flip things upside down and move things around in our home. It means that I have a better work space and…

There are moments when you’re outdoors and everything just falls into place… the light, timing and subject are in the perfect spot at the perfect time and you capture something beautiful. That’s the case with this month’s inspiration photo of this beautiful Bighorn Sheep. We arrived at a campsite in the Kootneys, an hour or…

April 2018 Club Reveal – Blackbird

I can’t believe we’re at the start of May already. Time seems to be moving at warp speed and there are days when I simply don’t seem to be able to keep up. I love that club gives me an excuse every month to play! April Club was inspired by this photo. Eric has always…

It’s hard to believe that it’s already April! Where has this first quarter gone? I’m a couple of days late but I’m so excited to share March Club with you. Inspiration for this month came from this photograph. It was taken by Eric on a backpack camping trip he did with our youngest daughter a…

February 2018 Club Reveal – Canyon Waters

I’ve loved going through some of our old photographs to find inspiration for club. This month’s inspiration came from a trip we did as a family a couple of summers ago. I love the play of the green river running through the brown and grey of the surrounding cliffs. It’s just such a pretty contrast.…

December 2017 Club Reveal – Hush

For many years now, I have followed a local painter, Amy Stewart. So when she posted the photo below back in October, I quickly sent a message to my husband, telling him that I loved it. We had a short discussion and decided that it would be a great second piece to add to our…

October 2107 Club Reveal – Baba

This month’s colourway is inspired by a photograph I took a very, very long time ago (1996 to be exact!). It was taken shortly after I finished courses in photography and was the first image I chose to enter into a member’s exhibit for a local darkroom gallery show. (Yes, this was taken on black…

April Club Reveal – At First Light

Shortly after I finished photography school in 1996, I traveled up to the Queen Charlotte Islands to attend my uncle’s wedding. Since I was “free” of responsibilities, I decided to extend my trip and have a longer visit with my grandparents and extended family. One evening, I was asking my grandpa about sunrise and where…

Feb 2017 Fibre Club – Lava Love

When Rachel and I first chatted about me taking over carded club from her, I was a mix of nervous and excited. I find that people so often have a preference for colours and creating something each month for someone, with no real idea of what they love, was a little nerve racking. However, I…
