Like the bright array of cupcakes in this post, the launch was colourful and very enjoyable. It was an amazing night with great support behind the scenes. The D2DL team helped with catering for the event and spent the majority of the day putting together platters, cutting up crudites and creating chicken skewers. I had the wonderful task of baking and icing the cupcakes, which explains why there are so many colours. I believe over 100 people attended the night, including my family. The event was opened by Clover Moore, who was introduced by Graham Long, CEO and Pastor of […]
A few months ago the launch seemed so far away, and now it’s just around the corner. It’s my first time really curating an exhibition and I had some challenges with the foam board… nonetheless it’s been an exciting time. I have learnt there is a special technique involved when it comes to cutting, it’s a very precise skill. Maybe for the next exhibition there will be perfectly cut place cards. Of course, I know that it’s not about the place cards, or the foam core, it’s about the people behind the dreams. When I look at all the art […]
It’s been a while since I last posted. We’ve been planning the Launch of the Deck of Dreams at The Wayside Chapel. I would like to invite you all to come along and join in on this celebration. Also, in other news Deck of Dreams has been chosen as a finalist for the TheMHS Achievement Awards. We don’t know what colour Deck of Dreams will be receiving, I am just pleased it’s a finalist. Thank you everyone for your support!
Day to Day Living, otherwise affectionately known as D2DL, had a National Forum last week on 13th and 14th March, 2013. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to speak about the Deck of Dreams. Thankfully, I’ve heard good things about my speech and left the podium feeling good. The whole thing was recorded so I will be able to publish it here once I get my hands on a copy. Mind you, I haven’t always been a fan of public speaking. I remember one of my early school reports stated I was a “reluctant speaker”. I didn’t know […]
The day has arrived, the cards were delivered yesterday in 9 boxes. The expression on my face while opening the cards pretty much said it all, as I didn’t take a photo, just imagine a grinning giggling Jen. I am very pleased with how the cards turned out, they look and feel great. Next week the Day to Day Living (D2DL) team are off to the National D2DL Forum. We will: Share successes and showcase resources Start conversations about topics you are struggling with Gain new and exciting ideas Hear from inspiring speakers Exchange info with Department of Health and […]
