Excursions

We went for a hike out behind our house yesterday. The landscape is barren and striking, and I think the huge blobs of granite that make up most of the landscape are simply gorgeous with our recent dusting of snow. What do you think?

Today I’m doing a few chores at home and at work, including printing up a few cards to complete an online order…

The studio is in a bit of chaos while I’m counting cards and picking out some older stock to add to our 50% discount table. I’ve also got several new canvases painted with background colours to become the next few Smudge Herring pieces. I’d like to get to #100 in the smudge herring series-seems like it’s a good number. The door you see leaning on the steel pole used to lead to the pantry in our home which we removed years ago and has just been taken out of storage. I’m looking for a good place to reuse it.

Sale

It’s Saturday evening at the studio, and fun gal that I am, I am doing a little inventory counting here in my shop. Have I mentioned that 2022 will mark my 20th year in business at Norton’s Cove Studio? Of course I have! In 20 years, I’ve made quite a lot of artwork. And some editions have sold quicker than others. While looking at my inventory tonight, I decided to set some ridiculous sales prices on some of those older pieces. And some other shop stock too: books, chocolate, etc. In store, you’ll find a table of other items marked down by 50% too.

Scroll through the online shop and look for the red sale buttons- no discount code necessary!

This Week at Norton’s Cove Studio & Café

A little reminder from me (and 7xFred) that all apparel is on sale this month! The discount code 2022 only works if you subscribe to our monthly eNewsletter though.

Valentine’s Day is less than a month away- which leaves plenty of time to order that special card, and purchase your Feast of Saint Valentine event tickets through our online shop, or in-person (or over the phone) at the Studio.

Mussel Heart is available as a card or a mini-print.
Does your sweetheart love the seaside? Mine does!

I’m trying out a new reservation system for this event, where you can pick an available time and date right on the order page. Click HERE to read the menu and order your event tickets! Now that the Lower Deck is finished, we have tons of room to spread out! With current COVID-19 restrictions, we are limited to 34.5 people (including staff) in the building at a time, need to physically distance ourselves from other bubbles by at least 6 feet, wear a mask when we are not seated/eating, and show that we are vaccinated upon entry. No sweat! We’re used to that!

Studio & Shop Update

I blinked, and it’s December! Cue the bells, candy canes, and carols! I love Christmas. And on Friday, TOMORROW, I’ll be celebrating our 20th annual Christmas Party & Sale here in the studio. 20th! We didn’t do a party last year due to- you know- but there was one year when we had two parties, so I’m sticking to 20!

You’re invited to our 20th Annual

I’d love for you to visit the studio, and I’m offering free coffee while you shop handmade. Hate the hustle and bustle of shopping in the big stores? Then stop in for a calm, relaxing shopping experience with a candy cane latté to warm your hands and the knowledge that you are supporting local, handmade, and independent! Every little purchase makes a big difference to small shops like mine.

Craft Fair Report

I had a great Christmas Craft Fair week in St. John’s! The fair was my most successful ever, I spent time with friends, ate good food, and am now very happy to be back at Norton’s Cove, unpacking my boxes and putting things away. I’m in the studio and ready for your visit or your online order!

My booth at the Craft Council of NL’s Christmas Craft Fair which ran from noon on November 11th to 5pm on the 14th. I would like to send out a huge THANK YOU to all the people who came and bought artwork- I can’t express how much it means to me. I’m really grateful. Really.
We ate at lots of nice places while we were away, but I think this restaurant is my favourite: Bad Bones Ramen. I love the style of the place, my beef curry ramen bowl was sooooo flavourful and delicious, and the service was excellent. Great food and artistry without being at all pretentious, nor expensive. Love it! Looking forward to dining there again next time!
Mick Davis & Thin Love played at the Bull & Barrell while I was in town, and I was very happy to sneak in an hour or so of listening pleasure- I absolutely love hearing professional musicians play live; I’m completely dazzled by drummers and guitarists, watching them work their magic. And can I just mention how great it is to see my little brother wailing out a guitar solo with a big ol’ grin on his face? And how has Jill Porter not aged a teeny little bit in 25 years? It was a bit of a time warp of an evening, as Mick looks about 19, and he’s just 5 years younger than me. Maybe I should have my eyes examined? What’s on the go?
