Gearing up for Christmas

ChristmasCardFront-Web

Did you know that Christmas is just two months away? It’s sneaking up on us so fast and I don’t know about you but I plan to be ahead of the curve this year.

So we here at Quadrophonic Image are getting ready to help you out with lots and lots of awesome art for Christmas presents. Just let us know what you’re wanting and we’ll make it work.

We’re also going to be at a bunch of up coming markets, if a custom order isn’t your thing. Find us at the following:

The first show booked is Creative Culture Calgary Wrap It Up: Holiday Sale from 9am to 3:30pm at the Bridgeland-Riverside Community Association (917 Centre Avenue NE).

CreativeYYC - Wrap it UpThen we’ll be at the Simon Fraser School for their 6th annual Artisan’s Fair. This is a free to attend event showcasing handmade work by students and local artists in the community with a portion of the proceeds to a school chosen charity. Details to come.

And last, but certainly not least is one of our favourite shows Market Collective. Each weekend will offer a new line up of vendors at the Chinese Cultural Centre (197 1st Street SW) and Quadrophonic Image will be there the last weekend December 19 to 21.

December Instagram posterWe’re working on booking more so check back for even more dates as we draw ever closer to December 25. But if you can’t make it to us, we can make it for you. Drop us a line for custom inquiries.

Lots of love.

Etsy: Made in Canada

EtsyMICCalgary-SetUpW-0914

This past weekend I had the opportunity to take part in the first ever Etsy: Made in Canada Market.

On Saturday, September 27, nearly two-dozen all-Etsy craft markets popped up in real life all over Canada.

The Calgary version took place at Symons Valley Farmers Market and my booth was alongside over 40 locally based Etsy sellers. It was cold, dark and long (Murphy’s Law when it comes to outdoor markets in Calgary) but it was wonderful too. There were thousands of shoppers who came through and checked it all out.

Suffice it to say, with all that support it was a huge success.

It was our official start to the holiday markets season and the debut of a bunch of new products including Metal Prints, Wood Prints and more paper products.

Hopefully we’ll be participating in more between now and Christmas – only time will tell though – so make sure you check back here for all the details.

But, if you can’t make it out, drop me a line and I’d be happy to sort you out with a custom order in time for the holidays. You can also check us out on Etsy here. <3

Yup. We live in a beautiful province and if you ever need proof, just head to the Bighorn Dam on Lake Abraham. For seven years we’ve been going – hell, I even had my wedding reception here – and year after year it never disappoints. This year I did a photo story over at Exposure. Enjoy.

If there’s one thing I love most about my garden it’s the ability to grow amazing plants to take photos of. I also have what is known as “The Random Seed Garden” where seeds are dropped every spring and awesome stuff grows. It’s currently full of Sweet Williams, a biennial herb that continues to wow with interesting textures, popping colours and developing lineages. Basically, from one season to the next, you never know what you’re going to get. So I’ve started a photo study of these beloved flowers and you can follow along as they progress.
