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 found this image of Georgina Bishop’s class on my old desktop… I think this is 2018’s graduating class, and many of these young ones are now 17 & 18 year old visitors to the café on a pretty regular basis.

I love having school groups visit the studio- each group is different.  Some are quiet, shy, not wanting to ask questions; others are rambunctious and full of excellent queries.  I appreciate the teachers wanting to show these kids what is happening just three doors down from their school, Pearson Academy, and I feel really special when the kids come back on their own time, bringing their families with them, or just popping in to see what’s on the go.  It really makes me feel like I have a role in this community, rather than just working in my studio by myself most of the time until the tourist season starts!

I wonder who will show up this spring?
