Studio Snaps

I’m putting a few frames together today, making some inventory checks, and getting the studio ready for a mat hooking workshop tomorrow!  Feel free to drop in any time the open sign is in the window! 

Next!

And now that #printapalooza is complete again, it’s time for signing, scoring, folding, matting, chopping, tasseling, and packaging Norton’s Cove Cards, Mini-Prints, and bookmarks! And the weather is perfect for such indoor work! đź‘Ś

Excursions

My new Studio Assistant (who you’ll be hearing from on a weekly basis), Jack, and I went for a walk at Deadman’s Bay Beach after work today, and I thought I’d share a few snaps with you…

Excursions Around the Bay

It was a beautiful day for a walk on the Greenspond trail. The seas are still rough along the shore after some recent high winds, making for some pretty spectacular view and quite a symphony of crashing waves.

It felt great to be outside in the sun after a long spell of indoor activities. (I’ve caught up on some home maintenance that had been put off for far too long. )

Jack had a great time too, and doused himself in all the bog holes he could find. Luckily, he’s happy enough to hop in the shower, so he no longer smells like a bog dog!

Preparation

Next week this time, I’ll be selling my wares at the 45th Annual Christmas Craft Fair, hosted by the Craft Council of NL (of which I’ve been a member for 28 years!).  It really is the best show of the season, with juried artisans of the best kind.

Until departing for St. John’s on Tuesday, I’ll be busy in my studio, framing up mini-prints and other artwork, and packing up for the road.

My hands are busy, but washing glass isn’t exactly the most interesting of my chores, and I’d love to have some brain exercise too- please stop in for a chat!

In the Studio…

Framing up some of these Snow Crab today, getting ready for the New-Wes-Valley Crab Festival which starts on the 23rd and finishes up on the 30th of this month.

Look for my new SNOW CRAB lino-cut print in the cafĂ©, studio, and in the online shop during New-Wes-Valley’s Crab Festival.

Excursions

We grabbed a take-out supper from the cafĂ© and ate at the picnic table in the first gazebo on the Greenspond walking trail last night. Duke had the Baxter Burger & Chippies with a Dad’s Root Beer, and I had the Chick Pea Curry with an iced coffee. Yummy supper.

Beautiful evening, until the mosquitoes found us. In Greenspond! The 1st time I’ve ever seen them there! Never mind all the tragic things happening all over the world- I’m upset about the immigration of mosquitoes to Pond Island!!! I think I’m prejudiced towards mosquitoes.
