  • also a huge thanks to Steve Fernandes who brought out a little bbq and cooked up hot dogs and wings and shared with everyone!

  • Clara Z.

    These are beautiful pictures! I wish I had attended.. the commute was much too far, heh.

  • The Little Drifters project was a great way to encourage people to get their creative juices flowing on an otherwise lazy summer day. Thanks Jeff & the Vancouver Sun for putting it together & thanks for feauturing my photos!

  • jofuf

    mine just sank :/

  • Rebeca

    so pretty and fun!

  • lapetitefaon

    adorable! And goodness Canada is so beautiful!!!

  • Cheers for posting a pic of my lil guy launching his pirate ship. He had a blast putting it together and watching it sail out to do battle with the ducks ;). Awesome day, good times.

  • Kyle

    Wicked!!! Thank you.

  • Ro

    Really nice project reminds me of the times I would go hiking in the mountains with my sister and dad. We would go fishing and we made some of these little floaters as well.

    Plus I would marry the girl in the 37th pic :)

  • brody albert

    so sweet! what a great event! this should become a global event… or a holiday even!

    • hahaha i would love to make it a holiday! lets do it

  • shannon rose

    each drifter was so unique and beautiful!

    I like how in the second picture you can see Levi about to aggressively throw his boat into the lake…probably in an attempt to sink someone else’s masterpiece.

  • Wowed by this. What an amazing event. I just can’t see any reason why I shouldn’t do it here. Thanks for the inspiration, Jeff.

    • wait until you see the rest of the submissions from around the world! haha sooo good

  • Thanks for this great Saturday afternoon activity. I spent days thinking about how to build my little drifter and eventually wove some iris branches from my back garden and then added a little moss pillow, stick and leaf person, and pea pod lifeboat from my picnic at Trout Lake. It’s so fun to play!

    • you might have had the only boat with iris branches!

  • Love this project! I looked up images of driftwood boats for a posting I wrote to celebrate your project. ( http://bcfamily.ca/?p=2850 ) Just like the lanterns made for the Lantern Festival at Trout Lake, each of these boats is so charming and precious! Thanks for organizing the project.

    • thanks so much Pamela!

Booooooom Reader Submissions: December

december-600

Here’s this month’s Reader Submissions post! Please share your work here if you’d like to be considered for a feature on Booooooom. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

One of the things that makes Booooooom unique is all the encouraging comments people send back and forth on these monthly submission posts. If you’re going to share your work please take an extra second to leave a nice comment on someone else’s work!

Voting up work is like high-fiving that person and it also helps us see what work you guys like! Remember, even if your work isn’t featured on the main site these posts can send some decent traffic to your portfolio! The link at the bottom will open up this full post, simply scroll down and use the commenting system to submit your work.

 

Submission guidelines:

 1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
