Upon Reflection

I am happy to say that I am back in my Studio again! In truth, I needed a break...a step back and reflect break from having struggled so hard trying to create a living where I felt my heart was always pinned to my sleeve. I will always create - I've never stopped - I just directed it into making things for our home - designing gardens around the house, etc. This consumed my time along with having started a full-time job in an unfamiliar field. All the while, StoppenLook sat gloomily upstairs in my Studio heaving a big sigh every time I came within earshot.

Another new product for my booth at Market on the Plaza :)

I just finished painting one of the shingles that I will have for sale at my booth. It's mixed media - water-based oils, acrylics and wood-burning! 

 

 

Market on the Plaza - August 27, 2016 'Florals are done!'

Whew! Well, I am adding a few new items to my booth - I just finished the floral arrangements and thought I'd give you a sneak peek ;) I've 11 and may get the even dozen done but I'm off to do the other products - stay tuned!

OPEN HOUSE for 'Whimsical Transformations'

Well! We had a lovely, lovely open house on April the 11th for 'Whimsical Transformations' - an art program I developed and taught as part of the LEAP (Learning Elders Arts Program). We had a two hour class every Thursday over the previous eight weeks.

This is part of the description that I wrote for the main display board:

"The colouring books were flying offthe shelves at work...and I do mean flying!

So much so, it made me stop and wonder why? What was all the fuss about?

The Annual 2016 PEI Buyers' Market will be here January 15-16th!

Getting Ready for the 2016 PEI Buyers' Market!

 

As winner of the 'Best New Product' award at last year's show -

SS Prince Edward Island 1917-1968


SS PRINCE EDWARD, circa 1960 (Photo credit: marineatlanticjourney.ca)

When I was a very little girl, my father (Lloyd Clark) who worked almost all of his life on "the boats", took me onto "The Prince". The only memory I have of The Prince is standing next to my father (his knees actually) at the newsstand and being mezmerized by all the shiny wood and brass!

I was researching through copies of old Island newspapers when I came across the following article which I thought you might enjoy and may well bring back a few fond memories to Islanders ;)

Grampy's Boxer Shorts

This little Peekabout™ was inspired by two dear family members - my Grandfather Stewart and my Uncle Earl.
