Well it's only been a year since I last posted, shame on me. It has been avery busy year. I had my jewellery in the Lindsay Gallery for 2 months and sold quite a bit at the Marketplace.
We went to Cuba 3 times in the last year, Nov, Jan, and March. We thought we would go as often as we could because dh had a heart problem this year, he had 3 stents inserted in Dec. He is now doing really great. We hope to go to Cuba again this winter but will have to wait and see.

I didnt go to Morrisburg for our annual clay gathering and I really missed seeing everyone. I certainly hope to go next year.

I became a great-grandma again in Feb, a beautiful little girl. I now have 3 beautiful g-granddaugters and will have another g-grandchild in Sept.

I got my knitting machine out of the moth balls and am doing a small bit of knitting, guess I will get busy and knit for the grand kids. They have such beautiful patterns now.

I have to get busy and get some stock ready for the summer, the new colors in the clay are really nice, love to use the bright colors.
I will try and post pictures as I finish my jewellery.
Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!

Home again!

It's been awhile since I last posted. We just got back from a month's holiday in Cuba. We had a marvelous time!! Now it's time to get ready for the summer show's.
I just found out today that I have been accepted in The Lindsay Art Gallery for the month of July. Now I have to get busy and figure out what to make and then make it. I will post some pictures as soon as I have some made. I think I will make some clocks and and do some watches. I sold all my watches at the Xmas show so I will try some more. I have been asked for business card holders so maybe I will give that a try too. So many possibilities!!!!!!!!!
I have to figure out how much clay I will need too. Oh my where to start? Have to send in some applications too I guess , they better be done first.
Guess I will go count clay packages, have a great day!

Back to Work

We just got back from holidays in Cuba, where it was really warm and wet. It rained every day we were there, not all day though just part of the day. The swimming and snorkeling was great! We met some nice people although the resort certainly wasnt full by any means.

Now I have to get back work and get ready for the 2 Christmas shows and a show at the Art Gallery. I got my little studio tidied up today and made more room for working. I have already started on a box and some buttons. Will get working on them tomorrow. I think I will try to do some Christmas decorations this year as well as jewellery. Have to come up with some different designs. I will have to replenish my stock at the boutique as well. I will post some pictures as soon as I have some finished work to show.
Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi there

Well it was a really rainy day here today and now its chilly. A good day to do some claying. I have been working on some new bracelets, the original design is Helen Breil's, it was in the latest edition of Art Jewelery, I believe. I have also been working on genealogy, getting everything ready for our family reunion. It's my job to send out the invitations and I have done that . I printed a bunch of books for the family , some genealogy charts that take our family back to 1500.
I am having a hard time getting motivated to clay, my muse is on vacation I guess. I think I might try some face canes, not sure what I would do with them but its a start. I almost forgot I made my first transaction on e-bay today and I won the bidding! Yay! Now to see how quick it gets here.

Have a great night!

Finally got my pictures uploaded!!!

These are the pictures of my new work, clay minaitures on a clay tile.

Twice in one day!

Hi again,
My pictures didnt show up so I will try again. These are my latest endeavor, miniature veggies on a clay tile. A lot of work but I enjoyed it.

I'm back!!!

Good morning!!

What a beautiful day today!! The sun is actually shining , for now anyway. I have'nt been keeping this blog up like I should . However I am feeling much better and my studio is finally spring cleaned. I like it much better this way, its easier to work in.

I have been working on doing miniatures, which isnt my forte but it is addicting. After I spent hours doing research , I really enjoyed making them. I made 4 tiles for a friend, they have tiny vegetables on them. I had to hunt all over the internet to get the right colors for them , I now have a ton of vegetable pictures.
I now have to get busy and make some new jewelery for the Artisan's Marketplace and for the show this summer Art in the Village.

I am posting pictures of my finished tiles . Hope you like them.

Happy New Year Everyone!!

Hi everyone,
Well its hard to believe that another year has come and gone. A lot has happened over the year some really good and some not so good. Right now my son is back in Kandahar but at least he got home for Christmas! For that I am thankful.
I will be on holiday for a month and will likely not be posting, not that I am that punctual anyway. I do hope to get organized this year for doing shows and getting a lot of claying done. I dont usually make resolutions but this year I think that would be a good one.
So have a great New Years and I will see you soon.
