Since moving to within Red Deer City limits last Autumn and now that the White Stuff has melted, I’ve decided that this Spring and Summer is as good time as any to explore this community in which I now live. Sometimes my explorations have taken me along roads I’ve never driven upon; sometimes into stores I’ve never opened the door to before and sometimes finding myself signed up for activities I never thought I’d have opportunity for. Some places I’ve explored are the inside of the Cronquist House and Kerry Wood Nature Building, the mountainous-like trails at Gaetz Lake Bird Sanctuary and some peaceful pathways along the river.
A few weeks ago I found myself at a charity fund raiser and for some reason I was compelled to bid on a beautiful lady’s golf bag and club set. At the outset of the silent bidding, I had a firm dollar amount to which I had set my limit for on this particular item, even though I had no idea how much such a package was worth! Now, I have mini-golfed a few times beforehand and only once before had I ever set foot on a course to actually golf and that was for another fund raiser about a dozen years ago already. Back then I learned I had way too much muscle for such a tiny ball. I didn’t think I’d actually come away from that event with a set of clubs, but that’s what ended up happening and I didn’t even go over my set limit!! Now I have to learn to swing a golf club properly instead of swinging it like a baseball bat. Oh, the adventures I might find myself on this year! “Fore”!!
Michelle is working her way up to serving you with all your framing needs. Having the kindest personality, our newest addition to our staff, is excited about her future, as she learns the ‘art’ of framing your memories. With her Bachelor’s Degree of Graphic Design, living in Canada for 7 years, she has worked in the professional photo lab industry, as a graphic designer and a photo technician.
Moving to Red Deer only last August, and loving it right from the start, she says ” Now I’ve got a job that I like, I love to see how to turn the art to an extra-ordinary piece when we put the right mat and frame around it – I love to see happy customers.” Realizing the difficulty learning & speaking the English language, as well as the endless amount of knowledge & skill needed to serve our clients at The Framing Nook, Michelle is eager to take the bull by the horns. She says she is “confident in who I am & what I can do at The Framing Nook.”
She should be plenty busy as she says she is “learning violin and I am a member of Red Deer Art Club. Music and painting is my life in Red Deer now. I am so fulfilled and blessed since I moved to Red Deer. I certainly see my future in The Framing Nook, Red Deer!!”
Having Michelle join our team with her cheerfulness, intelligence & eagerness will surely be a huge benefit to us, and especially to you, our clients. Please come in for a visit & say hello to Michelle!
Some days are better than others for various reasons to each person. Some days listed on the calendar have notations written on them indicating a special event or commemorating someone in particular. One calendar I refer to on a daily basis has, for the month of May, a few of the following notations.
