This week at Norton’s Cove Studio & Café…

Our annual Feast of Saint Valentine will be going ahead next week, with tickets still available in store or in the online shop. The menu is available for pre-order, and the Lower Deck will be open for those who’d like to show up before their reservation begins and/or stay for a while longer after it ends! Get up and have a dance or just cozy up with your valentine

I’ll be printing in the studio today, and I’d love to see some of your smiling faces here for a visit! Bring your coffee and stay for a cuffer!

I’ll be starting the day with RED cards, mini-prints, and bookmarks, and then work my way through to RED-YELLOW, ORANGE, RED-BLUE, BLUE, BLUE-GREEN, GREEN, BLACK, GREY, AND METALLIC ink colours to complete what I like to call PRINTAPALOOZA: a full run of ink colours with all Norton’s Cove card, mini-print, and bookmark designs. It’ll take me most of February to get it all done, with all my other tasks thrown in the mix!

This week at Norton’s Cove Studio & Café…

Our annual Feast of Saint Valentine will be going ahead again this month, with tickets available now in store or in the online shop. The menu has been updated, and as usual, I can’t wait to taste it all! Don’t wait until the last minute- get your table booked early to avoid disappointment. The Lower Deck will be open for those who’d like to show up before their reservation begins and/or after it ends!

I’d love to hear your suggestions for more special events between Valentine’s Day and June. Would you be interested in a Trivia Night? Or a Saint Patrick’s Day Feast? How about a Friday night dance (hearkening back to my teenage weekends at the Badger’s Quay SUF Hall) or a board game afternoon?

At the Lower Deck, I’m working on Operation Corkscrew: With the help of my trusty friend Joanne, we are cutting wine corks in half, dabbing a bit of gorilla glue on the back, and adhering each cork half to the unfinished side of a cabinet. I’ll be able to use it as a bulletin board, and it’ll add a bit of interest to the design of the room. What do you make of it? You might ask where I got all the corks? Aha! I’ve been saving them for about 20 years. And I’ve got one shopping bag full. Far less than the new 2 drink a week standard, for sure!

In the studio, I’ve completed all the Year-End paperwork (pats self of back), and now I’m gearing up for the first Printapalooza of the year. Making fresh plates to replace those that have worn out, and figuring out my print list: how many of each design do I have, in which colours, and how many do I need?

Our annual Feast of Saint Valentine will be going ahead again this February, with tickets available now in store or in the online shop. The menu has been updated, and as usual, I can’t wait to taste it all! Don’t wait until the last minute- get your table booked early to avoid disappointment. The Lower Deck will be open for those who’d like to show up before their reservation begins and/or after it ends!

I have made some decisions about the Café’s 2023 season that I’d like to share with you. We will be reopening in June, serving our supper menu only. And yes, you can make reservations anytime in the off-season by contacting me here at the studio.

This is the last week to take advantage of these great sale prices… The sale ends when February begins! Check out the online shop to see what else is on sale!

Christmas @ Norton’s Cove

If you’re out and about in New-Wes-Valley today, the studio is open all day, until 9pm. I’ll be here working on some last minute hand crafted gifts for friends and family, and welcome you to browse the old shop shelves for a unique last minute gift for your own checklist!

The town of New-Wes-Valley is planning a fireworks display tonight over Norton’s Cove, and while we had hoped to have the Café open to serve drinks for the fireworks display, the timing isn’t suited for us as we have such a big day ahead of us tomorrow with our Tibb’s Eve event. The studio will be open though, so do drop in to get a warm!

We still have Tibb’s Eve tickets available here at the shop, and I’d really appreciate it if you can share that information with your peeps who are in the Greater Norton’s Cove Area. There are convenient social media share buttons right in the online shop if you use facebook, twitter, or pinterest. Today is the last day to buy tickets and submit your menu choices.

Happy Christmas, everyone!
Especially to the Team Norton’s Cove who are hard at work serving up suppers to groups celebrating the season this week – and getting ready for Tibb’s Eve too!
Thank you Ted, Duke, Trina, Kasie, and Matthew for making Christmas special in the Cove!

Christmas @ Norton’s Cove

The time is flying by, and I’m sooooooo not ready for the calendar to tell me there’s only a week left until Christmas! Things have been so busy here, with my new job with Norton’s Cove Marine, and still planning events for the Café, and making product to sell in the studio/shop… My days have been pretty full!

This Week @ Norton’s Cove

We’re back from the Far East! We’re pleased with our sales at the 48th Annual CCNL Christmas Craft Fair, and almost everything is put back in place in the shop, and we’re ready to get on with it.

Tomorrow we’ll be hitting the road again to do a Marine Survey in the Clarenville area to avoid some dirty weather forecasted for Thursday. I’m planning to print some Christmas cards while the snow is falling! I am sold out of Christmas Capelin, and I have a new 2022 card image in mind too. With Christmas just 40 days away, it’s time to get to work!

Duke has lots of mini disc fender wreath ornaments ($12 each) made, and I painted up some miniature lobster buoys (set of any 3 for $12) which are displayed in the press room. Great if you’ve got a bit of a nautical theme going this year!

Norton’s Cove Café is planning its Annual Tibb’s Eve event: tickets will be available on December 1st!
