Notes to Nourish is a grassroots project featuring original art by Lower Mainland artists and designers. The contributing artists are: Chris Allen, Sarah Cavanaugh, Nova Hopkins, Luke Krienke, Jean Lee, Anne Pearce, Robyn Sommerville and Kathryn Wright.
We are selling two limited-edition sets of four holiday greeting cards to raise money for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society and British Columbia SPCA. The cards present a unique way to give back during the holidays; you are supporting two non-profit organizations, local arts and culture, and presenting sustainable greetings to your friends and family.
A set of four cards costs $10, or buy both sets for $15. Visit www.notestonourish.com to purchase. Cards will be shipped in the first week of November.

So once again it is that time of year again. Christmas. And let me just say that I hate Christmas. Not only because I'm a bitter grinch (I can admit it), but because of all that wasteful consumerism running rampant. And let me just say, Christmas came way too early this year. It's in VERY poor taste to be putting Christmas trees and holiday decorations prior to Halloween, and definitely in poor taste to have such things up on Remembrance Day. Yet they were up well before both holidays. Disgusting. Anyhow, let's talk about Christmas cards, or how I'd like to see them, "seasonal greeting cards" which are only sent during one season. I have decided to get into the networking business and I have found sending seasonal greeting cards to be the least offensive manner to keep in touch with all those people you met during the year- "I know you but I don't really know you"-types. You know what I'm talking about. All those people that you know you'll need to keep in touch with because at some point along the road you'll need them. So here I am, attempting to be a seasonal greetings card with no reference to any religion. It's difficult, to say the least. All cards either have references to Christmas, Hanukkah outside and inside the card, or have implicit references with pictures of ornaments or trees.
