The Art of Holiday Survival

As an artist, the holiday season is so vital to my survival that I want to have it all ready. For many artists, more than half of the revenue we generate comes from sales in November and December—driven by art markets and gift sales for the holiday season.

People Together

Leah Bodie

Wild Child Sewing came about from Leah's personal need for clothing for her daughter that was unique, of great quality, and a reflection of her lifestyle here in Fernie.

It takes a long, long time and many discouraging moments to get to the point where you feel comfortable calling yourself an artist out loud and in public. When creative types get together and talk about our craft, we tend to be quite self-deprecating.

Kira Steed

Intentions are an interesting concept when it comes to artistry.

She’s come to learn that just because she starts with an idea or inspiration, it does not mean that her final product will imitate that.

I recently had a friend contact me about a disturbing email they’d received. The writer of the email purported to have compromised my friend’s account. That they had access to their computer, their email, and their webcam.
