Vancouver wrap up!

I had a whirl-wind trip in Vancouver this week. Flew in on Wednesday then an insane full day on Thursday.
I did a TV appearance

I even got to meet the authors Mandy Moore and Leanne Prain of the soon to be released book "Yarn Bombing" at the welcome party at my hostess with the mostess Kim Werker's house.

I was also tickled by these amazing vegan cupcakes made for me by Coco Cake Cupcakes

"Welcome Faythe".... um, amazing.

AND, Kim & I spent her 33rd birthday doing all sorts of fun shopping & eating (I ate the best sushi I've ever had besides in Japan). She took me to The Assembly of Text which I was of course in LOVE with every aspect of... go there if you like letters, typewriters, zines, indie publications and girls who do dope shit.
