Go Lisa Go!


In just over a week, my sister will be representing Canada in the World 100K Ultra Running Championship in Winschoten, The Netherlands!

So proud of my sis and you better believe I'll be routing from over here!

In honour of such an occasion, as a fun surprise I sent her a pair of tacosaurus socks in the mail and a custom card of this guy up top. (She'll be wearing them on her long run this weekend :))

Go Lisa Go!!

Boston & FableVision Studios

A couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit Boston on vacation. I couldn't help but take that chance to stop by and check out FableVision Studios while I was in town. I had met Paul Reynolds, CEO of FableVision, at a conference a few years back and so it was great being able to connect again. 

I love the work they do at FableVision and also the children's books by FableVision founder, Peter Reynolds, are some of my all-time favourites with such amazing stories, like The Dot, Ish and Sky Color. So I was excited to see the creative hub where it all comes together.

Paul showed me around the studio and I also had a chance to meet Gary Goldberger, President of FableVision. It was such a nice visit and what a great view they have, on the 6th floor of the Boston Children's Museum, of the Boston Harbour. 

Thank you Paul and Gary for taking time out of your day to show me around and connect. 

Wishing you all a very successful International Dot Day ahead, September 15-ish! Let me know if you need anything in Canada :)

Cheers,
Holly

Centennial Selfies


This was one of those comics I just couldn't resist. This spring Canada Geese were all around the College. In order to discourage them from nesting near the building, dog silhouettes were placed around campus that would move and sway in the wind.

The geese avoided them at first, watching from a distance. Then stood nonchalant nearby, giving the shifty eye and, within the week, they were hanging out beside them. Even saw one sleeping right beside the dog.

It was a good effort. We'll see what's to come for next year...


Centennial Selfies was published in the School of Business Business Connected Newsletter Vol1.2

The Angora Rabbit, Is There Any Other Kind?

If you haven't been exposed to the Angora Rabbit you are really missing out. I was showing some co-workers recently and these are just too good not to share…

Yes there's a rabbit under there :)
