Giveaway winners + Drawing A Day #113: No strings

February 7th, 2011

Thanks to everyone who entered our calendar giveaway — and a big woohoo CONGRATS to our two winners: Tanya (aka High On Craft, one of our featured artists) and Geneviève (who’s been so encouraging throughout our project so far too)… we’ll be sending you your calendars out today!


Thanks also to Serena for taking over the reins while I went to Cuba and did a week-long impression of a beached whale. While I was down south, I was feeling very grateful to be able to break out of the usual day-to-day rigamarole and grind, and this image popped into my head — No strings:

(And please don’t think that I feel like a puppet in any way — it’s just a visual for some of the thoughts that were bumbling around my brain at the time :)


And more thanks for a couple of very kind shout-outs we got last Friday:

(1) The D.A.D. Project and I were featured, along with my dear friend and CBC host (and past D.A.D. donator) Amanda Putz, on our friend Amanda Sage (also a past D.A.D. donator)’s new site called “Kickass Canadians“.

Check out the site for inspiring and insightful interviews by the likes of sprinter Glbert Glenroy, producer/publisher Alex Janson, and others. Thanks for thinking we kick ass, Amanda S :)

(2) The D.A.D. Project got a thumbs-up on Local Tourist Ottawa, courtesy of Krista Leben (yet another past D.A.D. donator) who was being featured because of her Wed By Hand event, which took place yesterday.

Thanks so much for the kudos and encouragement… it’s incredibly appreciated and humbling.

Have a great week, everyone!

Feature Friday #4: Photograph (untitled) by Amanda Sage

July 2nd, 2010

Our fourth donation is this beautiful, understated photograph from Amanda Sage. Fitting that this beautiful understated photo is untitled, since it really just speaks for itself:

Amanda is a freelance writer and photographer with a penchant for filmmaking. She also recently wrote and released a series of children’s books under her publishing shingle, Wonderpress. To learn more and check out her other photographs, please visit www.amandasage.ca.

I met Amanda years ago when we both played on the same competitive ultimate frisbee team; she was one of the most dedicated people on the team (and an absolute force on the field), and I think she approaches life with that same enthusiasm. She also happens to an extraordinary baker.

Thanks Amanda — you’ve been a huge D.A.D. supporter right from the get-go, and we appreciate it very much!
