Around the Studio & elsewhere.
December first is when my family kicks it into Christmas! The outside lights likely have been on for a few nights already. Hubs would love to turn them on the day after Halloween. I like to keep it closer to December as it makes is more special for me. Maybe it’s all...
I have started a new endeavour where I hope to inspire you to take some time to be creative! I am hosting monthly shows on ConnecTV called “Lets Create! with Barbi Defazio”. ConnecTV is a local (Ottawa) grassroots live streaming platform. Their aim is “To connect people, places and things and have a higher quality of life!” That sounds great to me! I will be going Live every second Thursday of each month at 2:00pm est. on ConnecTV’s facebook page.
I have been trying to collect my thoughts in a bigger way since the beginning of the year for my “Yay, It’s a New Year!” post. I am introducing Let’s Create! These workshops/lessons will be virtual, in-studio, out in the community and some will be collaborations.
Happy Women’s International Day! 2022 #BreaktheBias!
You may have noticed my muse is feminine and is powerful! Each character, artwork and illustration that I create following my muse contains the energy and spirit of many of the awesome women I hold as friends, clients, or have made a connection with in some way.
The Studio is now in Winter's Slumber and will reopen on January, 4th, 2022. Wishing you and yours a most wonderful and safe Holiday Season. Merry Christmas! More From This Category
I feel creativity is a soul-nourishing, soul energizing and a soul-fulfilling activity. It can be a way to reconnect with your inner self and inner world. It can be a powerful healing tool, a self-care tool, and a mindful practice. And freedom if you get into the beautiful state called the zone.
This Saturday, December 18th from 11 am to 4 pm you are invited to my 1st Annual Christmas Open House! This will be an opportunity to shop the Studio store, enjoy a tour of the studio and get a peek at some new products and workshops that are coming in 2022! Follow along on Social Media this week I will be sharing behind the scenes and sneak peeks!

My family and I went camping recently near Kingston. We were in a beautiful area of hills, woodland and farms. And not that far from Kingston's lovely downtown, with cute shops, a beautiful waterfront area and lots of history. I have not been many places since the...
