Let me introduce myself: I'm Janet Davis, an artist and entrepreneur living and working on the North side of Bonavista Bay, on the island of Newfoundland in Eastern Canada. There are many challenges to running a business here in a small rural community, and there are many wonderful benefits too. This blog is where I share some of those challenges and triumphs, and share what it's like to live in this part of the world.
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.
