In the Studio

I am colouring & packaging new cards, minis, and bookmarks this week, for our own shop shelves as well as some orders coming in (including Christmas Cards!)

A few of my cards and mini-prints are printed in black ink and then coloured by hand using watercolour paints. I love this part of the job- I like to settle in with a big pile, listen to a podcast or two, and get them all done at once.

The Mystery of the Missing Printing Plate Update:
No sign of the saltbox printing plate anywhere! When my favourite cousin asked if I thought someone may have stolen it, I said, “don’t be rediculas”; but right now, I’m thinking it’s about the only explanation! Maybe someone put it in their pocket by accident? I know I’ve come home from the Café with a napkin in my purse before. I can’t be the only oblivious weirdo out there, can I? Anyway, the search continues! And in the meantime, I have to discontinue that image in the online shop, as I can no longer take orders for that particular design. I guess I’ll be making a new saltbox image!

Product Spotlight

We had a great time with Cotillion last night! (From left, Dave Panting, Gerry Strong, and Hugh Scott) They held a captive audience through a downpour of rain and a bit of thunder and lightening, and I’m still humming their tunes this morning. I’m sure we’ll see them Live @ Norton’s Cove again on their next tour.

Our next Live @ Norton’s Cove Event at the Lower Deck is on September 10th, when we welcome David Guy to the stage. David is an artist living in Musgrave Harbour. He is married to our Pastry Chef, Chrys Hogan, and so is a part of our Norton’s Cove family. We’d love to pack the place with live music fans- so make some plans! Reserve a table at the café for supper before the show, or come with a bit of an appetite and enjoy Ted’s Lower Deck menu of small plates.

In the Studio

We are printing and packaging new cards, minis, and bookmarks this week, for our own shop shelves as well as some orders coming in (including Christmas Cards!) and as this is Madison’s last week here at Norton’s Cove Studio, we’re trying to fit a lot of work into the last few days! If you’re thinking of stopping in for a visit, it’s a great time to see how these lino-cut relief prints are made!

A funny thing has happened… see the printing plate in the picture, which makes my Saltbox card? It has gone missing! We have searched high and low, and we cannot find it! Obviously, it’s here somewhere. But where? So if you come in and you see we’re using flashlights on all fours to search the dark corners and under the sink, you know why!

Product Spotlight

Our Head Chef at Norton’s Cove Café, Ted O’Connor, makes an amazing Stuffed Pork. Full of flavour and creaminess, I love it best with mashed potatoes and sautéed vegetables, as shown here. It’s one of our best filling comfort foods on the regular supper menu! You can order it with rice instead of potato, and there is an new option of a Moroccan inspired chickpea salad in lieu of the vegetables.
