Our daughter is dancing in the local production of Nutcracker this weekend!!. I made this little ballerina for the silent auction which people can check out in the front lobby of CEC before the show and during intermission. Funds raised go to the Truro Dance Academy Bursary.

After the show

The Show went really well!! Thanks so much to all the buyers, appreciate your kind words and support.

I was just getting the house back in order today, it seems my hubby doesn't know how to operate the dishwasher..or washing machine...I am not bitter, really. 



Thanks Daniel! Hope Kathy likes it.


This was purchased by a very kind man for his wife...lucky lady!



I very nice woman purchased "Woman Holding Fish" last weekend. It was actually a little weird as the woman had come in the show on Friday, and she and her friend had said they liked the colours in the rug..then that night I kept having dreams about this rug. First thing Sat. morning, the same woman came in and said she couldn't stop thinking about this rug, and ending up purchasing it.

It is one of my favourites, so glad it went to a good home.

Last touches for the Show

I have been spending the morning getting the rugs ready for the Designer Craft Market. I need to make sure the tags are on, that the rugs are all signed and tidy them up a loose feels like I am saying goodbye to them.

So, going to pick up kids afterschool, stuff them in the car, along with the rugs..bamboo screen, desk, and shelf, everything I need for my 5x5 space. The kids are going to be my "helpers"..I guess I just wanted them to see the Cunard Centre, the place where Mommy goes every November. I want them to see all the wonderful art and meet the artists.

Too Attached

I received some rugs back from a show and from a gallery that is closing for the season. Unpacking the box, and seeing the rugs again..well, it just made me happy to see them. Well, cheques for rugs sold is also very nice! but I was just glad to have the rugs back home.

Almost Ready for the Show!

Here is a pic of the studio/third bedroom/ex-toyroom. I put all the tags on the rugs today and will put on the price stickers on Friday..or maybe Monday or maybe..yup, I am procrastinating. Next to drawing, pricing the rugs is the next scariest thing that I do..not sure why, but it makes me nervous. BUT,  I will forge ahead and I won't let fear get to me.
