Life’s A Beach

I’m taking a little time off this week, and I started my holidays with a walk on the beach with my favourite cousin at Cape Island.

We found these interesting balls on the beach, and with a little investigation, we deducted that they are balls of seaweed type grasses that have rolled on the beach to form balls.

A grey and beautiful walk with a treasured friend. A great way to spend some time away from the studio & office!



Beautiful weather has continued into the fall season here in Bonavista Bay- and I’m terribly happy to have some free time coming to enjoy it while it’s still here…

Gorgeous fall colours are starting to appear, as seen on the Greenspond hiking trail.


Top of the morning to you!

Here’s the view from my deck this morning as i drank my 2nd cup of espresso after walking Jack around the cove.

The weather today and yesterday has been spring-like with + temperatures and has worked like a drug to get me moving again after a month or so of wanting to hibernate. 

We didn’t get the snow that the Avalon Peninsula got last Friday.  We got enough wind to throw all the framed images in my studio off kilter on the walls, but no snow accumulation.  No shovelling!

So far, January has been for paperwork, tidying the studio, and making plans for the rest of the year.  I’ve ordered new lighting for my work-counters, sent out T4s, completed all my fiscal year end accounting, applied for a Studio Listing in the Craft Council’s Studio Guide, applied for a space at the NL Crafts of Character Trade Show in March, and made plans to do some collaborative work with Brian Ricks Photography.
