Fall — in love

DSC_0352I love autumn. New beginnings and a time for change. The days get shorter, mornings are cool and all the shades of yellows, oranges and reds are seen from my windows.

It also means Arts & Crafts Shows season! That means that I am busy creating. The Georgina Studio Tour was a blast. Probably the most perfect weekend — thank-you to all the wonderful people who stopped by Homestead Orchards to visit (and to buy apple pie).

I am preparing for beyondCRAFT Show & Sale which starts in little over a month, at the Latcham Gallery in Stouffville. If you have never been, it is a great show —  like a mini One of a Kind. Speaking of which yes, I am getting ready for my first Christmas One of a Kind. Remember if you are going to the show, I am there during the second half, December 2nd to the 7th.

Here are some of my newer canvases. As you can tell, this home quote is a favourite of mine. It seems to resonate with many other people too, so it is a keeper.14-h28 214-h28 14-h28-2

 I am also enjoying my woodland girl canvases. I think a boy is next — perhaps a couple?

And the girls are so much fun to create. I love the texture of her hair.

I’m Everywhere!

I am so thrilled to announce that I will be an exhibitor at this year’s One of a Kind Christmas Show! I will be at the show for 6 days, from December 2nd through to the 7th. I am still dazed from the news. I am constantly working to improve my art, learning new techniques, and exploring new mediums, so one of my goals will be to have new creations to debut at this show, along with my mixed-media canvases and cards.

IMG_5950I have also branched out into Cannington and Newmarket. The Ginkgo Tree is a lovely shoppe in Cannington filled with locally handmade goods, ranging from soaps & health aids to local art. The apothecary carries a wide variety of herbal remedies, bulk medicinal herbs and tinctures, and the tea room offers a yummy light menu with many homemade treats to finish off your meal. You can find my mixed-media canvases, cards & jewellery are there.

My favourite grocery store, Nature’s Emporium in Newmarket has a wonderful shop practically located in it called, DayLyn Local & Global Healing. Along with its healing centre, DayLyn supports local artisans, fair trade, handcrafted and environmentally friendly products to assist in the healing journey. I love to wander through this store with its beautiful clothes, jewellery and home decor. All items are handpicked to carry a message of commitment to wellness. I am fortunate enough to have my cards & canvases there as well.
