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! 👌

Norton’s Cove Mini-Prints getting signed and sorted on my well lit office table.

Back in Black

Printing black cards, mini-prints, and bookmarks took two days, as there was a power outage on the 2nd day of #printapalooza, and while I did get some printing done in daylight, after a couple of hours without heat I could feel a chill creeping in, so I went home and parked myself next to the wood burning fireplace in my kitchen. Toasty…

Did you know that it takes about 3 seconds to make a perfect piece of toast by holding a piece of buttered bread inside the wood-stove on a big steel fork? 😋

The Travellin’ Thurg’s

David and Theresa, from Calgary, stopped in for a visit the other day, and instant friendships were formed.  I love it when that happens.  And I hope to see them again.  Here are some snaps David took while they were here: I was printing cards and mini-prints and bookmarks in a red-blue rainbow roll.

In the Studio

It’s a gorgeous sunny day here at Norton’s Cove. Not too warm, not too windy, just right.

Inside the studio I’m printing cards, Mini-Prints, and Bookmarks. If you’d like to visit, I’d love to show you how they’re made.

Throw Back Thursday

I don’t remember what year these images bring me back to, but I made these mini-print images of New York City, a place I’ve never been, at the request of a New Yorker who enjoyed my work enough to ask for some special pieces for her pop-up shops (before they were called that).

I was reminded of them by a recent trip to New York by a couple of close friends, and by a scarf I’ve been wearing again lately that was purchased for me by my mother while shopping in Times Square a few years ago.
