Athena’s School of Cool

Last weekend was Athena’s open house at her school, the North Bennett Street School. It was awesome! Definitely makes one feel like a giant loser because the production going on in that one building is amazing. Athena alone has made 50 + books since September & they are all beautifully crafted, unique and one of a kind. Next store to the bookbinding studio is the piano making studio which was beyond cool. It was amazing to see these people so passionate and dedicated – not to mention patient. It was just really refreshing to see people getting back to basics. I’m so glad we went! We are so proud of Athena.. I told her it was the best thing she could have given herself… she trusted herself and went for it and you can just feel the positive energy flowing out of her. She started Apple Scruffs a few years ago and I’m so happy and excited to see where it takes her. ❤ Her boyfriend, Ben is amazing too… another lovely soul who is working on some solo experimental music – Baixadefinitely worth checking out! . Oh, and on top of all that goodness ..after getting some delicious Indian food we got to see Bruce Campbell’s new movie “My Name is Bruce” with a Q & A with Mr. Campbell himself! Talk about some good energy… Bruce is my hero.

      if you ever get the chance you should go look at the school.. it’s amazing.. it’s the only school in north america that has a degree in bookbinding. i know they do a few open houses but i’m pretty sure you can just go to visit.
      p.s. that’s not rory’s sister – she’s one of my very best friends :]
