UMS Launch Party!
Well, my friends, the big night has come and gone. Life is starting to resume it's regularly scheduled programming. The dogs still need to go on walks and the laundry has to be folded. But holy hot damn the UMS Launch Party on Saturday was a freaking BLAST!
I was thrilled with the turn out of family, friends, and keen supporters of the arts in Cold Lake. Beantrees Coffee House was packed, the java flowed, tunes rocked (thanks Shenanigans!) and prizes were given away.
Did I mention the cool UMS "book" cake?! Nummy.
Many thanks to the following peeps who made the launch so special:
Ryan - fabu MC
Shenanigans - awesome new band of merry ladies
Dean from Kool 101.3 FM - coolest DJ around
Sobeys - cool cake makers
Fragrant Treasures - awesome gothic rose arrangements
Beantrees - the host venue
Leap Books - for making UMS possible
Lots-A-Books - our local indie bookstore on hand to sell copies of UMS
Jo-Ann - for the decorations and help setting up
Carol - video and still camera tech extraordinaire
Dave - still photos to DIE for
And finally HUGE thanks to my husband, Shawn, for putting up with one stressed out diva author/wife this week!
Here's a vlog of the night - 2 hours cut into an 8 minute melange of the launch party happenings.
