An Eerie Dearie Giveaway!



          Recently Miss Lo and I met with our dear friend Rebecca Chaperon at one of our favourite Gastown spots- Nelson The Seagull- purveyors of fine hot chocolate and coffee. We sat down for a little catch up and chat- it was inevitable that our shared love of art would come up in conversation- mainly Rebecca's exciting new alphabet book- Eerie Dearies- 26 Ways To Miss School. It is so fantastic to see a friend do so well and watch her project come to fruition over the past couple of years- from drawings and paintings to finished product.


         I have long been a huge fan of Rebecca's work- her early robots on deserted islands stand out as some of my all time favourites. Her new work is no exception- her use of colour is haunting- her subject matter walking the fine line between innocence and slightly dodgy- wayward excuses to be absent from school. Rebecca has been kind enough to offer a signed copy of her beautiful collection of 26 illustrations- to one lucky Weekdays From Scratch reader. A handful of other goodies - postcards and two signed letter prints will accompany Eerie Dearies- what a special bundle!


         Rebecca's website is also a treat- pop on over to have a look through her wonderful online shop- full of wee ice bergs- and her blog to follow what other special things she is up to- including a look at her wonderful new works! To enter into the draw simply click on the rafflecopter below and enter as many times as you can- be sure to follow Rebecca on Twitter for an easy entry!

  5. I only ever missed school for illness or orthodontist appointments. Though the latter meant a half day off & lunch out, since we had to drive an hour from our orthodontist-less town to the big city for each appointment. :)

    1. Thanks Salma! My Mom was also very savy in that department- if we wanted to stay home we had to go to the Dr.s!

  8. I remember my mom took me out of school a few times to go on a long car ride to places we have never been to and pretend we were sisters. I will never forget it. Other times we would dress up and go to a museum.

  9. If I wanted to stay home, I had to be sick. But I'll admit there were a few 'sick' days that I faked it.
