Catching up and passion projects

By | Business | No Comments

Over the past few months, I have been working really hard to do a better job working with and understanding all my clients, needs in my community and really collaborating on some cool projects I’d love to share with all of you. This would not have happened without meeting some incredible people over the past few months and trying to personally grow, which we all know can be hard to do or put a focus on. I started taking a night class at UNBSJ and since then collaborating and sharing ideas has really changed the definition of what that meant for me. Projects and client work I take on now provide more results and better relationships and has made the purpose of these projects so much better.

Strange Grooves has become a really important project for me. It has opened up some phenomenal opportunities and even more amazing conversations. We are on Episode 17 and I am extremely humbled. Check out the latest episode above with Josh Bravner from The Hypochondriacs. We have been working hard, Cherise and I, to book great interviews, plan and create great events, book more slots where we spin our records, spend more time at peoples hours and venues talking about music and it has been so freaking fun!

More on Strange Grooves from Grid City Magazine or from the website.

Area 506 has been something else I have been putting a lot of time and effort into. It is a festival here in my hometown of Saint John and I am thrilled to be on their board of directors as the head of marketing and communications. This festival means a lot to me and so does the success of it. I love music and seeing people enjoy it even more. That being said, There is a wicked show on March 13th that Shivering Songs and Area 506 are putting on. The sheepdogs will be playing the Kent Theatre here in Saint John. Make sure to grab some tickets yo. I would also ask if you know of anyone who may be interested in being a vendor or a sponsor to get in touch on the website.

Check out more on the Area 506 Instagram page here.

These passion projects have really made me do a deep dive into why I do the things I do. That goes for clients, community, myself and many other factors.

The last one I will tell you about for now is The love economy NYC Gathering.

Over the past couple months, I have been working with some phenomenal people to make this event a reality and its happening it’s under 2 weeks. If you know someone who should be at this get them in touch with us via the Facebook page or Instagram.

Hope you are all doing amazing! Give me a shout if you need help with anything marketing related or if you would like to help or contribute to 506 or Strange Grooves.

Cheers 🙂

 

 

 

MAUDE + MONTGOMERY- Bring the Maritimes home.

By | Business | No Comments
MAUDE + MONTGOMERY  brings the soul of the Maritimes alive and allows you to take the maritime home with you no matter where you are in the world…
 
Featuring an incredible collection of curated Artisanal Gifts and gift boxes that offer a sense of nostalgia for east coast living. Simply beautiful items and gifts for everyone.
I recently received one of their signature maritime gift boxes and was floored. Everything from the way the box was made, the smell, the contents, I would 100% recommend checking this company out and getting one of these special boxes.
I have been working with Kerri and heather for a short time now and I am loving what they are doing with their brand and online business. The story is being told from so many different views and that is so cool
 
The artists, the owners, their customers, and ultimately how their customers use those special items and make memories with is bringing the MAUDE + MONTGOMERY brand to new levels. I am over the moon to be working with this company and I love how everyone in Atlantic Canada is helping each other and the community at the same time.
I urge you to check out their website and the items in their shop. The gift box alone for 25$ is a steal and is extremely well crafted. It could be used for so many things.
 
Specific items I really liked:
 
Sea Salt and Spoon  Used this to make a stew on the weekend and felt like I knew what I was doing with this special little ingredient and the stew was amazing!
 
Sea Kelp Soap  Some of the best soap especially for sensitive skin. I will be switching to this 100%.
 
Linen towels  Honestly, these make me look like I have a nice kitchen and that I know what I am doing LOL. They are very nice and made extremely well. I will be ordering some of these for the bathroom next.
 
Quiet Coast Candle– Love the smell of this. Light, and refreshing. I love the smell it put through the house.
 
The flowers…These were such a nice touch. I really enjoy all the contents sincerely and recommend checking them out.
 
Check out their Instagram.
Check out this article by Huddle for more information and an interview with Kerri.

 Cheers 🙂

SLAB- Wood From The Hood

∇  Audio and blog Interview with Judith Mackin of Tuck Studio- Interior Design and Decor.

I was honored to sit down with Judith on Tuesday at Tuck Studio on Grannan Alley for a few minutes and get a sneak peek into the SLAB project launching on November 16th. Some of the furniture is stunning and really tells a story.
I also asked her about some of her favorite musicians, concerts she is attending in 2018 and generally what she wants for her city moving forward.
 
Judith has a creative brain some of us creatives wish we had for Projects and design. Her work ethic and love of music, as well as sincerity toward her brand and team, are very humbling and very apparent. Judith chooses her projects wisely and with the highest level of respect for her community. This project certainly reflects that.
