Just Ask Owl

Booths are being set up and lights and decoration hung. It will be great to see everyone at Holiday Spirit this weekend. It's one of those events where I get to catch up with fellow artisans and loyal customers that have been busy all year. Just 2 more days!

Winter Fun

The snow flurries were swirling around in the air today. Winter is on it's way and these guys are making the most of it. Hopefully they can get their snowman done by tomorrow.

Glad that pictures tell a story because there's not much time to write. Hope to see lots of familiar faces at the Holiday Spirit market in Sydney next weekend!

Into the Woods

A quiet hike in the woods often reveals a pleasant surprise. You know how exciting it is when you come upon a wild animal that hasn't caught site of you just yet. They are just standing there quietly going about their usual daily routines. Nothing startling happens, it's just the wonder of seeing for your own eyes what you know is living there. I enjoyed a day like that today so I had to share.

Do you see them? Imagine my surprise! I got a little closer.

Yup, that's a raccoon and a fox having a chat alright.

Indulge me. I've been staying indoors working on little critters for the upcoming market at Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design.

They're Back

The Parka Bears made their debut last year at the annual Holiday Spirit market hosted by the Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design. They will be back again this year sporting some new parka colours. Hunters orange seemed be a good idea!

These little guys will be available on the website soon too. Lots more to come as the preparations continue. Fun fun fun!

Celebrate Altered Egos!

It's so exciting. Where to start? Friend and fabulous artist Teena Marie Fancey is having an opening tonight at the Craig Gallery in Dartmouth. The title of the exhibition is of course Altered Egos. I know these faces and their stories will delight and intrigue their audience.

Teena honored me by asking that I create frames for a few of the pieces she had painted. What trust and confidence she showed in me! I love that about her as a fellow artist and I also love that those very characteristics are in many of the faces and the poetry of her Altered Egos. Yes, poetry. You must go see this exhibit if you have the chance. I'll show you just a glimpse to entice you to go in person.

If you do get there, say hello to Dear Heart for me. I miss her. All my best wishes go out to Teena for her new exhibit. Celebrate!
