This Week at Norton’s Cove Studio


Work-in-progress: this Smudge Herring lino-cut plate was started last year, and was put aside to make space for other work. I started working on this again yesterday, and am happy with how it’s looking so far- see next image…
I’m planning to print these fishies a couple of different ways- as a regular edition of prints, but also as an installation piece (printed on silk panels) for a gallery exhibit that I am going to propose called UNDERNEATH.

I finally finished my #printapalooza printing sessions this week, and already I am running low on some colours/designs with the increase in traffic that I’m starting to see here at the studio. So that means that a new print-run will be starting again soon! And I’ve made a little change to my cards this year: I have a new stamp for the backs which I think looks much better than the sticker and is more environmentally friendly. So the next time you see a Norton’s Cove Card, flip it to check the back!

Norton’s Cove Studio is open
10am – 6pm Wednesday through Saturday
10am – 3pm Sunday

The online shop is open 24/7 of course,
and you can choose to have your items shipped to you,
or you can ‘pick-up in-store’.

This Week at Norton’s Cove Studio


On the morning of July 1st, we remember all those who have worked so hard to make this world a better place. And on Canada Day, I am thankful to have been born in a country where we have the right to keep on fighting for the rights of us all, and to keep making things better with each generation.

Rope Mats by Duke, starting at just $25, and half of the proceeds will be donated to IBEC to help fund their beach clean-ups in the area!

Duke will be showing visitors how to make his popular thump mats from reused ropes found on our beautiful shores. Stop by the studio from 2-4 today to make your own rope mat! This event is free and for all ages. Feel free to bring your own rope, or use ours!


I am still packaging Norton’s Cove Cards, Mini-Prints, and Bookmarks to fill my shelves and a few orders going out around the province. That means I have lots of time to chat with visitors while I’m scoring, folding, stamping logos, stuffing envelopes, and water-colouring the printed images! Do drop in for a visit.


Don’t forget about our ongoing contest!

Hot off the press: These lino-cut relief prints will be scored, folded, a writing liner paper and an envelope inserted to become Norton’s Cove Cards.

So far in 2021, we have printed 156 bookmarks, 1,318 cards, and 857 mini-prints. And I know that it won’t be long after I get this batch packaged that I’ll have to start #printapalooza all over again, as I am already running low on some images & colours again. Which design is your favourite?

In the Shop

I’ve been having fun as a shop-keeper the past couple of days, getting new product on the shelves and adding them to the online store too. When a new box of goods shows up at my shop, it’s like my birthday! I love it!

From Foggy Island Candles, we are now carrying 6 different scents in these 6oz travel tins, $20 each
Kate Fudge Art cards, at $7 each. Seriously though… I know who I’ll give a Pineapple Crush card to, and half the nans in NL could get an Evaporated Milk card, but who am I going to give a Vienna Sausage card to, and to mark what occasion? Don’t they look great on the old wire turning display that came with this c.1890 general store?
Velvet Snow’s Forget-Me-Not pieces are moving quickly. So far, no one has left the shop without at least one piece! Understated and beautiful. $33.50 – $42 price range.

This Week at Norton’s Cove Café


New products are arriving in the Café Gift-shop, including some really cute all-occasion cards from artist Kate Fudge that just might be perfect for a Newfoundland & Labrador loving person in your life! #pineapplecrush #tetleytea #puritysyrup #canmilk #mustardpickles

Velvet Snow

I’m pleased to share this beautiful jewellery line with you here at Norton’s Cove Studio: made by Kim Cleary of Velvet Snow Accessories, each piece envelops dried forget-me-not flowers.

Velvet Snow Accessories is a handcrafted jewelry line based in Newfoundland, Canada. Designer Kim Cleary, born and raised in St. John’s, forages wild flowers and foliage within the province and turns them into beautiful, minimalistic accessories.

The pieces are shown in the antique display case that came with this historic c.1890 general store, and of course they are a great compliment to my own Forget Me Not cards and mini-prints, an iconic image in Newfoundland’s history.

Prices on the pieces range from $33.50 to $42, before HST is added.
