Raina & Mimi at Princess Tea
In other news, the first workshop I put on went really well. I have a second one scheduled in a few days, and thanks to the company Mystic Knotwork (who are going to be featured on our site after the latest update) sponsored me so I can now sell the recordings. You'll see that pop up under our "merch" section soon.
The mermaid vlogs are coming along well, and there are LOADS of videos that now teach you how to be a mermaid! I'll be adding a link to the left hand panel on this page for people to checkout. I get so many emails asking me how to be a mermaid it's just impossible for me to answer them all. The best thing to do is read my book, and check out the workshops, and check out the free vlogs!
Speaking of my book, it had it's 1st Birthday in May. Book #2 is in the final drafting stages and will soon be edited and formatted! I am hoping it'll be published toward the end of the summer, early fall at the latest.
Mermaid's Nessie and Naida
Mermaid Naida has been my (Raina) saving grace! I've been keeping her busy with lots of gigs and the two of us have been running all over town like a bunch of mermaid crazies. We get so busy that sometimes there isn't even much of a chance to get photos but we certainly get into mermaid hi jinx and we're ready for another Fishy Summer.
Naida, Nessia, and Mimi will be at Shore things from 12:30 on for Canada day celebrations!
I wont be there, I am sneaking off to a Lady Gaga concert in Montreal!
I just recently got to talk to a grade 12 entrepreneur class about business as a mermaid! I also did the spirit expo. Both sets of photos can be found in the slideshow below.
