Sorry Dad, Kamloops is ranked 81st, even if you can ski and golf on the same day.
He, and all his furniture, moved in last night.
You can expect many home improvement posts comming soon.

I love how he used a sound effects record album cover for the backdrop.
The scratched record that it used to hold is now one of these two.

I responded to a kijiji ad this weekend that was offering free records. When I didn’t hear back from them right away I assumed that someone else beat me to it, but then I came home to a message on my machine on Tuesday.
It turns out the ad was posted by Legend Records. Not only did they still have boxes of unplayable records left for me to pick up, they were also interested in seeing my paintings and putting them up in their store!
Yesterday I got a ride out to their Wellington location and picked up as many free records as we could fit in the car. I also dropped off a couple painted records I threw together in a hurry Tuesday night, and a stack of business cards. We’ll see if anything comes of it.
If nothing else, I now have enough vinyl to keep me busy for a long time.
It looks like I’ll have to start branching out into other used-record crafts.

To add a little life and brighten up the dreary view, I made this hanging vase the other night. It took way longer than I thought to hollow out the old light bulb, but I think it was worth it. I originally wanted to make a set of three (as I happen to have three matching burnt out bulbs) but it might be a while before I muster up the courage to try it again.
