Kootenay Women in Business // Danielle Abenante of Sprinkles + Rose Homebakes

At the end of August we hosted a Kootenay Women in Business contest. We wanted to feature a group of female business owners and entrepreneurs in a special way. With COVID wreaking havoc on small shops and artists livelihoods, we thought it was a good time to garner some exposure for fellow makers and celebrate our Kootenay roots. We had 41 (awesome) applications to the contest and saw entries from across the Kootenays. From Rossland to Revelstoke, from East to West, and everywhere in between including Kootenay Babes who now live and work beyond the Kootz. All the businesses that were entered were so varied,...

There's No Place Like Home

Hi everyone! It's been a hot minute since we touched based with you. Last we chatted, we were deep into quarantine, day 287 (so it feels). Since things have turned around a bit we have wandered out of our tiny bubble into the world again. Leah & I only saw each other from 6 feet apart twice and we hadn't seen our parents in 6 months. Not seeing loved ones and going to the places we love is hard, as you all know! As things lifted we decided it was time to venture off to our favourite place, Kootenay Lake!   This...

Levelling the Curve & New Realities

Levelling the Curve & New Realities

Wow. Just wow. March has been quite a month. In fact, 2020 so far has been a real kick in the pants / eyeopener / slap in the face / epic adventure / life changing. You get the idea. I'm wondering how the well-known proverb for the month fits in here... "in like a lion out like a lamb". We have yet to see anything lamb-like and the damn lion keeps getting hungrier and angrier. So, with this strange new world upon us, here is an update on what we've been up to. First off, Kootz Collective is still operational. We are...
