Just a real quick post. I’m soooo ready for bed. LOL
Gay Latte was a complete success. A fabulous evening, amazing talent, all for a great cause: Camp fYrefly.
Tonight, we raised $314.75! Thanks to all our readers, and everyone who donated. We made enough to send a youth to camp tonight. Well done!
Well, it’s one of my favourite times of the year again. 😀 Pride Week! And today we headed down to Victoria park (beside the South Saskatchewan River in Saskatoon). It really was a fabulous event – even better than last years. Lots of great folks, great food, and great fun. There was tons of the kids to do too, which was really awesome. Here are a few pics:
It really is fun to just sit back and let the girlie go at an event like this. Where no one is a stranger, and we’re all there for the same reasons – to celebrate who we are. Fast friends, everyone. A fabulous, safe, and completely supportive environment. It really was an absolutely fabulous time. 🙂
Tomorrow it will be Gay Latte, and guess what?!?!? McNally Robinson is actually creating a special “gay latte” that will be served at the event. How fun is that? Prior to the event, yours truly (as a member of the Camp fYrefly team) will be hosting a press conference to discuss Camp fYrefly and how vital programming like ours is to youth today. Gay Latte will be in the cafe, and the media event will be in the alcove. Hope to see you there!
First off, an apology. I’m a little behind. Still lots of photos to edit, and just haven’t had the time to put in that I was hoping I would this week. So to my TD Photography clients who are waiting on their disks – I am sorry. Hopefully I’ll be able to get them all finished early next week.
Second, a Hoowah! Camp fYrefly Saskatchewan is now on Facebook. Okay, yes… we had a group there before, but lets be honest, groups aren’t really worth a whole lot. LOL So now we have a PAGE on FB. Hope you’ll all come by and “like” us.
Third, a request. It appears that the planning for Gay Latte (which is being held during PRIDE week here in Saskatoon) has fallen to me. As I mentioned above, I’m already a little behind in my workload so I’m really hoping for some help with this. If you are a local writer – professional or amateur – and would be interested in doing a reading, please let me know. I’d like to ensure that everyone who would like a chance to read, has the opportunity.
Now? I’m off to watch a little Fringe on DVD before falling blissfully to sleep. 😉
Busy day today.
Got a whole whack of disks out ready to be picked up from the photo shoots I’d done the last couple of weeks. Did them up differently than what I’d done in the past, and I’m very happy with them. Laser inscribed, coloured disks in matching coloured sleeves. I figure beautiful pictures should be delivered in a beautiful package… and now they are. It took a little work to get all the kinks out of the new system, but I am very happy with the end result.
Created an ad for TD Photography. It’s a little half page black and white one that will run in this years PRIDE Guide. We always attend as many events as possible during PRIDE Week every year, so I’m super excited to have TD Photography in the guide AND to be helping to organize the Gay Latte poetry night this year.
Did almost all the grocery shopping for the dog show. All I have left to buy is bait at the deli. Sliced chicken loaf. The dogs always go gaga for it… and the only time they ever get any is at a dog show.
Sewed up a new x-pen surround. I’d bought the material last year, but never got around to actually putting it together. So I’m glad it’s finished. It will be much prettier than just draping baby blankets over the crate and pen.
Laundry all finished up and folded too. So come tomorrow, I’ll be ready to pack, and both DH and the girl will have plenty of clothes so I don’t have to worry about what they’ll wear whilst I’m away.
I’m always completely exhausted by the time I actually leave for a show. It takes a ton of work to get everything ready. Once upon a time (before child, before jobs) it was a relatively simple thing… and everything could easily be accomplished the day I left. Not any more. LOL Heck, I’ll even be taking work WITH me to do at the show during my very limited down time. Just because I’m away, doesn’t mean the world stops. Still lots to do on both my Camp fYrefly and TD Photography plates.
Well… I’m one tired chick. Time to rest.
