Got Craft 2015

Fantastic Frugal, Savings <3, Social <3

It’s a bright morning, the temperature has been climbing, and Crafters are convening on the Maritime Labour Center on Triumph Street in Vancouver!
I raced down to the hall at top Honda Spree Scooter speed (50CC). Why would I race?? SWAG BAG!! There are only 50 available and you need to be early enough to get a genuine Swag Bag ticket 🙂


Lucky Ticket for Swag Bag!

The Crowd is friendly instead of competitive. Beautiful conversations abound in the lobby while we wait for the clock to tick down to 10. Fast friends are made over paper cups filled with fresh coffee from JJ Bean up the street.


10am finally came and two lines were formed to enter the hall; Regular Entry and SWAG Entry!


Got Craft is running at The Maritime Labour Center on Triumph Street today from 10am to 5pm.




This amalgamation of Hand Made treasures has everything; chocolates, hand worked leather, upcycled clothing, laser crafted jewellery, baby duds, knitt cowls, home grown herbs… Etc. Etc. Etc.

I’m out of breath! I could keep going but the pictures are even better than the descriptions:

My FaceBook friend John Pippus gave me a tip that all you musicians in Vancouver will want to take advantage of!

John says, “Romer’s Burger Bar in Yaletown is offering $50 worth of food and drinks for any musician or comedian who signs up for their open mics on Thursdays. I know. I couldn’t believe it either. But I was there two Thursdays ago and I got the deal. I played three songs and got the $50 deal. It can’t last – like the $2 coffees – but get it while you can.”

Social Media, management on another level.

This week I started my practicum under the tutelage of Dani Vachon for FanClub, a club on Granville street with a New Orleans vibe, fantastic live acts and a mouth watering menu.
Every company in the world can benefit from the help of Online Guru. Your Online Guru may be known by any number of titles depending on your company industry and what it is you wish this person to a accomplish for you. Currently I am training under a Brand Manager.
In my practicum position I am learning new things and wrapping my mind around BaseCamp and HootSuite, as well as being back at work after 3 years off. BaseCamp is a fantastic tool for any organization to use to communicate and consolidate on projects in an extremely organized and user friendly manner.


HootSuite is an invaluable tool for post scheduling, social media monitoring and research, they have a host of tools to check your analytics and feeds all from one dashboard.

I love the level of organization and detail that you can bring to the table for a client by using spreadsheets and online tools to assist with business growth!

Now back to creating content and tweaking webpages…
