Today (& tomorrow), I am home in Oakville as I have a few days off from my regular 9-5. The house is currently in disaster because my parents are getting the floors re-done, and everything has been moved all over. I spent my day working away at the kitchen table trying to avoid strange looks from Sinbad, the tile man (who was likely judging me for wearing pj's at 3 p.m. Heh!). Not the best atmosphere for creative thinking, I admit.
There is just so much to do! The 'to do' list keeps growing and growing, and my ideas keep building and building and before I know it there is always just too much to get done in one day. I am sure my close friends are growing tired of listening to me talk about the roadtrip. I am constantly bouncing ideas off of them, looking to them for encouragement, relying on them for honest opinions - but hey, it's what friends are for...right? (LOVE you guys!)
I realized today that, as much support as I have received from YOU, it is just not enough to push my way to the top. I need to go big! HUGE! GINORMOUS! I need to reach a much wider audience...but how? With only 7 days left in the Aviva Community Fund, I need to think fast. Any tips?!
This weekend, I have every intention of partially embarrassing myself (& maybe some willing friends) by getting out into the streets and just chatting to people from around the community. Lots and lots of them! I am actually designing a little 'brochure', in shape/design of a postcard, which people can take home with them... cute? crazy? silly? fun? waste of time? Who knows.
At the end of this contest, I just want to know that I pushed as hard as I could to make it happen. If I don't make the top ten, I will find a way to make this idea get out on the road (literally). Somehow. It will happen!
Anyway, it's time for me to rest my buzzing brain and hit the pillow.
Thank you, deeply, for the love and support. It feels so special to have so many people backing me.
Keep those votes coming, and spread the word far & wide!
Happy trails & travels,
