Welcome 2017

With the challenges, ups and downs of 2016 behind us I have been taking a bit of time to reflect on the past year and anticipate the new one.  It helps that the cold snowy weather is encouraging quiet time and tea.  

Looking forward I'm excited to

  • build on the success of Zombie Fight or Flight kickstarter with PignPotato
  • work towards a Restorative Justice initiative in New Westminster
  • find new ways to practice mediation and conflict resolution

2016 taught me a lot about resiliency and adaptability.  Hopefully I have learned those lessons well and can apply them moving forward!  I've never been one for resolutions, they always seem somewhat punitive, but I do love a good theme.  This year I am challenging myself to put more things in the world before they are perfect.  I'll let you know how it goes.  

Zombie Fight or Flight Kickstarter

The Zombie Fight or Flight Kickstarter campaign is going strong.  Now over 50% funded with 1 week to go.  The count down is on to find that extra support that will push us over the top and make this game a reality.  If you've been thinking about supporting now is the time to do it.

We've been getting great feedback from a variety of places.  Classroom gifts for teachers, stocking stuffers for teens and unique gifts for clients are today's reasons for support.
