I was in St. John's this week working out of the Craft Council which is located in Downtown St. John's. Who knew I would have to go there, to see the sun! But shine it did and although it was cold earlier in the week it was quite lovely there and nice to be back in the Big City. That's what we on the west coast of the island refer to St. John's as. ;) As you can see they have no snow...and we have so much snow that I had to dig out my compost bin for fear I would never see it again! Needless to say I spent most of the weekend shovelling snow which I actually like because it's another reason to stay outside. The view of the water is what is known as The Narrows. Narrow but deep. It's the view out of the Craft Council building so I'm not quite sure how anyone gets any work done because it is so beautiful. Will I ever make work again? I hope so...but for now I have to be like the Groundhog and keep my head down for the next six weeks to get this research work accomplished. I have that Photography 4-day Workshop this coming weekend...can't wait.

I was just visiting some of my favorite Blogs. Abigail Doan is an Artist in New York: http://www.abigaildoan.blogspot.com/ Low and behold today she is talking about going to this Felt Exhibition at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York City. I have never been to New York but I have always wanted to go to New York. It's just like me to finally make a little money and blow it on a trip. But I ask you, what could be more important than going to New York City? particularily when there is an Exhibition on Felt happening? I always dreamed I would go in November and skate at Lincoln Centre and see the Big Christmas Tree and all the decorations. But Spring I'm sure would be just as nice. On another note I attended a Workshop over the weekend on Internet Marketing. In two weeks time I'm doing a 4-day Workshop on Photography. Prepared to be dazzled in the upcoming months. ;)

I came up with a little idea to display my scarves. I think she is soooo cute. She's cute right? I am very busy these days carrying out the work for the Craft Council. Soon I'll be travelling across the province trying to hear from everyone who is part of the Craft Industry. I've also agreed to teach in the school system again. (That may have been a mistake. I may have to split myself in two.) I couldn't help myself because I absolutely love teaching little kids. They are hilarious and they look at you as if you are a Star. Pure magic. A few years ago a friend of mine gave me a pair of snowshoes. Everytime I wear them I'm really glad I got such a nice gift. One of the reasons I like snow lately is because it 'records' who's been there before me. I know the woods where I walk are filled with bunnies but it's not until the snow falls that I know for sure because I can see their little prints in the snow. I was delighted to see that three readers had left comments on my last post. I'm so flattered that you visit. I'd better get back to work. :)
