Last month Cowie and Fox contributed to an art charity event, called Art to Boot. We had to “art up” a pair of Blundstone boots and they’d go up for auction, money raised went to I Heart Van Art. It was a collaborative effort with our Creative Director, David Manzl and Senior Graphic Designer Nicole Phillips.

On February 27th I checked out a sweet art show on Granville street. You walk in, purchase a $5 pack of mystery cards created by various artists, then you open them up and start trading with people in the gallery. It’s the most socially fun art show i’ve ever been too. I’m totally looking forward to checking out their other event Hot One Inch Action.
If you want to submit art or just check it out sometime, go here: http://www.hotartcard.com
$15 bucks later and some awesome trading, this is what I settled with:

This past month I was featured on a little website called Vancouverisawesome.com and I wanted to share it with all of you.

Well, i’m not usually the type to go to the aquarium or the zoo and look at animals locked up in cages, but I recently ventured out to the Vancouver Aquarium, the main reason being that I had a 2 for 1 coupon to use and I hadn’t been since I was a kid. On the plus side it was a beautiful sunny day to spend at Stanley Park.
As I entered the building I was a bit skeptical about the whole thing, but I quickly forgot about reality when I saw all the amazing tanks of fish and various other creatures.
The only thing that still upset me was the belugas in the outdoor tanks, but overall it was a wonderful trip. The jellyfish were so surreal!

Okay so this is going to be a tiny bit embarrassing and very personal, but at the same time it’s kind of interesting. I’m hoping this will become interactive and someone else on the team will post a reply, or maybe even some readers will share some links?
Anyway, I was recently forced to sort through a bunch of my childhood items that were in storage at my parents place, now that they’re moving, it was time to downsize and get rid of a lot of toys I had been storing away.
But, this post is not about the toys I’ve given away, it’s about the one’s i’ve decided to keep, because they were a big part of my childhood and i’m still attached to them….even at the age of twenty-six….(I know, kinda lame, but i’ll probably never grow up).
Meet Pound Puppy, Pooh Bear and Glo Worm.
Now here’s where I ask you the question, what was your childhood toy or item? A bear? A blanket? G.I Joe?
I’ve had Pound Puppy since I was a toddler and he travelled around the world with me, I used to use him as a pillow for my little head. As for Pooh Bear, I think he was given to me at a very young age, he’s super old and very worn. And lastly the ever trendy Glo Worm was just cool to use as a night light every time I went to sleep.
And I think that about wraps it up for my super personal and a little bit embarrassing post of the year!

A while ago Cowie and Fox recieved an eye catching postcard in the mail, it was passed around the office and after a quick read and a chuckle we decided that it was perfect to post up on our blog.
Thank you to Mark Stokoe

It’s full on into the Summer season now and one of my favorite ways to enjoy it, is to sit on my patio. When I come home from being at C&F, there’s nothing like lounging on my deck with an ice cold beverage, watching the people pass by and having a little BBQ too.
It took over a year for me to finally get my patio the way I wanted it to look, plants wouldn’t grow, chairs were too big, but now it’s just right.
I recently got my place featured on a website called Apartment Therapy.
Since then, i’ve managed to build a large cedar bench (with the help of my boyfriend) to replace my previous seating.
The bench ended up costing half of what i’d pay for one in a store and the benefit is that I could customize the length to fit my patio perfectly. Most quality wood benches in the store are anywhere from $100 – $300 and my bench was about $50. All the wood was untreated cedar which was all pre-cut at the hardware store to the sizes that we pre-measured before hand. We also purchased some extra long screws, some boat varnish to finish the wood, sandpaper, and the decorative cushion for the top.
You can find this cute cushion at Canadian Tire for around $35
To top it all off, I found a retro style Coca Cola crate to store all my BBQ accessories in and next to that, the little BBQ fits right in just so.
