Countdown











I'm still dyeing outside even though some of my pots are freezing overnight and my cd collection is serving as a 'spot to put things'. I like this crazy time when I'm getting ready for all the shows and I also like the creativity that comes when there is a deadline looming. Of course, I still manage to go for my daily walk in the woods with my dog. (Actually we go for two walks a day). Yesterday we spotted three nests. Kinda like finding a surprise. Nice.

October







So how do you photograph scarves? I'm just trying out the Lightbox but in all honesty, I think I should be outside on a beach somewhere. I made Creme Brulee on Saturday night for my friend's Birthday Dinner. Unfortunately it was more like Creme Carmel. The fat in the cream is supposed to stop that from happening! Hum...it's nice to have challenges....isn't it?

While it is beautiful outside....not so much inside. However, that just means work is being done. I've made the decision to do all 11 days of the One of a Kind Show in Toronto, in addition to the Fine Craft and Design Show in St. John's, along with my job as coordinator of the show here in Corner Brook. Needless to say, I have a lot of work to accomplish between then and now. What I have noticed when you take on such committments, is that it forces you to start thinking in different ways. You start thinking about creating 'collections' of work because you know it will all be shown together and you also start thinking about colour and colour combinations, not to mention creating new work, and trying to design new booth displays. Chaotic? yes. Enjoyable? Absolutely.
