Countdown







As I count the days down to my next new role, I wonder what will become of the 'old' me. Will I still create? or more importantly, will I have time? I guess I will have to make time, which of course I know I will do. And...I will definitely have to get more creative when it comes to writing this blog because now I have to serve as an example to all my clients! In the meantime, I wanted to say Thank You to everyone who has wished me luck in my new role. That means alot to me. I will do my very best. xxxb

Woody Point







Just a few photo's of Woody Point...where once again there was magic in the air. The music of The Once is still swimming in my head as well as the lovely Sarah Harmer....and I can still hear the words of Lawrence Hill. I'm not sure what I will be doing this time next year but hopefully I will always be able to get to Gros Morne National Park on the second last week of August to take in the Writer's at Woody Point. I can't imagine wanting to be anywhere else.

Sunday and Monday











Today we (my Craft Collective and I) set up our show at Writer's at Woody Point which is a magical six days of Writers from across Canada and Musicians from Newfoundland and Labrador. I'm going back on Wednesday to stay until Friday. A little mini-break before heading off to my new life. And speaking of my new life, one thing I'm really going to miss is Sunday evenings on the deck overlooking the Bay of Islands with my friend (and landlord) Trudy.

Happy Summer

I was really on a roll there for awhile...afterall I think I made three posts in a row didn't I? I know, nothing to brag about. I always intended to simply write about what goes on in the life of a Craftsperson and what it takes to build a craft business. You know...show the inner workings and maybe inspire someone along the way. Now in my role as Craft Development Consultant for the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, that will be my job. Needless to say I'm not making much work of my own what with packing and looking for spot to call home and buying my first car no less. And just for the record, I'm not really off drinking every night but I did enjoy a pint or two...(or was it was three?) this past weekend while catching up with friends. Hope you are doing something just as nice where ever you are.

Beauty







Yesterday I went on a helicopter ride over Gros Morne National Park, with my two friends Shawn and Tess. It was fantastic! Thank you Tess.
