We have exciting news! Last night was the awards ceremony for the Canadian Online Publishing Awards — you might recall we had two nominations, one for best B2B website and one for best B2B company feature. (It's the one Corinna wrote about The Raging Bowl Pottery, if you want to give it a read.) And we are thrilled to report that we won gold for best B2B website! We couldn't have done it without you — thank you for joining us on this journey!

In other news, we're gearing up for our next event on February 25, with Vancouver lawyer Czarina Pacaide. We'll be covering everything about copyright, patents and trademarks, including how to make sure inspiration doesn't turn into copying and what to do if someone else steals one of your designs. If there's anything like this you've ever been curious about, please let us know in advance so Czarina can prepare a thought-out response.

Enjoy your weekend, wherever you are!

Yours in making,

Co-founders Corinna vanGerwen and Kat Tancock
