Time Sure Flies!

Standard

HAPPY CANADA 150 DAY!

Here we are at the start of Summer already!  Time sure flies by when one is busy!  Hope you haven’t been too busy and get to relax this summer.  Me…I’ll be busy moving my studio so haven’t been able to fit in any writing time it seems.  Been a whirlwind selecting new window coverings, changing decor colors…all that fun stuff when moving.

Definitely will be taking time off to have my Birthday picnic at the end of the month!

Today is Etsy’s big Canada 150 promo day so joining the ranks with all of the other Etsies out there with a flurry of social media antics.

My shop will be closed for the month of July and hopefully I will get caught up on finishing my blog posts…”All About Crystal”, “Wondrous Bismuth” and of course the on-going tale of Baby Ugly.  

Speaking of Dolls…the 3rd in my collection is finished!  “Canadiana” has been created in my unique way for celebrating Canada’s 150.  Perhaps you too have a creative element during your celebrations…would love to hear about it!

I’d like to feature the first art show that I was involved in since my cancer journey began (I’ve done a few more since) curated by the very busy Lauren McKinley Renzetti….

Woodbine Park Companions

Woodbine Park Companions”. I have loved photographing the Mute Swan and the American Black Duck for the past seven years. The Swan’s mate was busy in the marsh with their nestlings.

One of the very best compliments ever……a young lady called wishing to interview me for an essay she was working on for school.  I had never met this young person, but I was so delighted to hear from her! ********************************************************************
