Trade Toronto

Back when I thought this was going to be an online store I went around scooping up hot plates to make them into dry erase boards. I never did get around to the store, life happened, but I did keep the hot plates. I have always thought they were too pretty to not be shown as usable art.

This trade

Me – finally get to do a guerrilla art installation in the city I live in

You – a free and awesome Christmas gift ?!?

First step: Hang out with two good friends after a work function and measure out and drill screws in.

Project: Kensington Market Giveaway

1/ Have art installations around Toronto to try to bring people here and to learn to engage with all people in unfamiliar territory. Thinking on your feet and creating empathy. 1 project for September and 1 project for October.

I have learnt over the last 14 years in Toronto that art is a term that one can use in whatever fashion they want. Thank you.

Art installation – Kensington Market Giveaway is in the works.

Medicine Man for May 9

Today I was going to talk about my results from the Natural Shampoo and Conditioner I was using. What I realized is that I don’t wash or condition my hair that often so in two weeks my sample size is too smallI to tell if this is right for me. What I can tell you is that it felt amazing. Different than regular shampoo and conditioner but definitely doing what they needed to.

Then I was going to tell you about my Oil Pulling results. Nothing to report here as it seems I don’t really do anything consistently. But again felt great and will add it to my life, on occasion.

Neither really motivated me to type last night so now what I am going to post today is something I did not see coming. I was in Kensington Market today and checked out my heart graffiti and to my awe I saw this. my kensington heart

The last time I saw them they looked like this.heartk5

Someone went there and cleaned up my hearts and added their own. I cannot even tell you how magical that was for my heart.

Medicine Man for March 21

The Street Hearts posts began on March 26, 2013 with my favourite one of all, this guy. I wanted to take him home but thought that would be selfish so instead I slowly watched posters go up all over him and then one day the wall was broken and all traces of him gone.

Forever .. right??? Nope. So 1 year later I have gone back and added some of my own love. I am going to pop by Kensington Market every so often to see what happens with what I put up. I like the idea of letting go and seeing what other people do to my words and heart.
