February 14th is a great day to celebrate passion! What better day to launch a book about leading passionate lives? Here I am with two of my favorite artists, Pipi Tustian and Coco Jones. This photo was taken for the article in the Cowichan Valley News Leader –
The book launch/heART party is 6-9 pm on Tuesday, February 14th at Embellish in Duncan, BC. Several of the talented artists profiled in the book have generously donated artwork with a heart theme for Valentine’s Day. There will be bubbly beverages and some sweet treats on offer, a draw to win a gift basket, a 7 p.m. book reading, books for sale, and the opportunity to meet many of the amazing women living their lives of passion in the Cowichan Valley. 100% of the profits from the sales in the “HeART Gallery” will go to The Somenos Transition House to help other women in the Valley to achieve their heart’s desires. The Duncan thrift store affiliated with Somenos Transition House – WINGS II: Women in Need Growing Stronger – is in need of nightgowns, housecoats, slippers, yoga pants, or shirts and skirts suitable for job interviews. A donation of any of these items would be greatly appreciated. If you have plans with your sweetie just make them a little later and come to Embellish first – sweeties welcome too, of course!
