Origin wall - Oct. 2015

Thank You Opus!

How great to unpack a box of paint-brushes, pastels and more from Opus, a local art store. Goes to show what great things can happen when you reach out to neighbours. The beautiful, fresh notebooks (everyone loves a new notebook, right?) brought in at least one new person, which is always great.

Thank you Opus for your support!!
