It’s a beautiful day here in Norton’s Cove. Some very small bits of ice ice floating around in the cove, the sun is shining into the studio, and it’s not blowing a storm (oddly!). Because my other job gives me today off (stat holiday), I can go ahead and get some work done here in my natural habitat! I’d love to see you if you’re out and about- drop in with the family to see printmaking in action in a c.1890 heritage building! I’ll be printing all afternoon, as printapalooza restarts today. Printapalooza is what I call doing an entire print run: all designs in all colour options, as needed, usually more than a thousand prints.
We have new necklaces and wine charms in stock from Karlande Designs of Clarenville. Andrea Sharpe makes lovely pieces from sea-glass found on our shores and sterling silver. Each piece is gift-boxed with care instructions, and even includes a sticker! You’ll find them here in-store only.
This coming week, I’ll be celebrating my 20th business anniversary! Norton’s Cove Studio Inc. was incorporated on April 19th, 2002, and I’m happy that I’m still in business. The struggles are not over, far from it, but I count my blessings in this life I have here in my beautiful hometown every day. I understand how privileged I am to own my own home (which now boasts a hot-tub & sun-room! I’m so impressed we could make that happen! Thank you Duke!) and to be able to offer something special here to visitors and locals alike. I’m very proud of what my Team Norton’s Cove and all our supporters have accomplished. And so, on that day, I’m offering a sale in the online shop to subscribers to my eNewsletter (subscribe here): 40% off all my cards, mini-prints, limited edition prints, one-of-a-kind pieces, and Norton’s Cove Apparel. Enter the discount code TWENTY at the checkout. The sale will be online only, with orders delivered by Canada Post, or picked up in-store on Saturdays or by appointment.
