Studio Visit











Yesterday I went to Woody Point in Gros Morne National Park...it's so beautiful there. I visited Barb Daniels' Studio. She's so lucky...just look at that view! Barb has a wonderful space and amazing collections. Later in the week I'm heading off to Rose Blanche which is on the south west coast of the island. I've never been there before...at least not that I can remember. My own studio practice is on the back burner right now so it sure is nice to be spending time with so many wonderfully gifted Craftspeople and Artists. What a life!

Travels







Last week I travelled up the Northern Peninsula all the way to Conche. It was a spectacular view when we crested the hill before heading down to town. In the morning we went to Englee which was absolutely breathtaking in the calm and foggy morning. and now it's confession time. For anyone who was amused that I had started another blog last week you might be even more amused to learn that I really can't write that blog....at least not right now. :) So for the time being I'll just stay put. Have a great evening.

Another blog?


This will probably amuse some but I have started another blog. I say this because I hardly ever post on this blog so to start another, possibly seems, shall we say...'a stretch'? My new blog is intented to document my travels and experiences as the new Craft Development Consultant for the Department of Innovation, Trade and Rural Development. In the meantime, last night I watched a beautiful documentary created by Maiwa in Vancouver on Natural Dyes. If you are a member of the Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador you can ask to borrow the DVD and they will send it to you....that is...when I bring it back! Which I promise will be soon. Oh yeah, my new blog is www.nlgirlforcraft.blogspot.com

Two weeks in







For the past two weeks I've been getting aquainted with my new job. Moved into my little house in Grand Falls-Windsor and my new (lovely) office, as well as spending the past week in St. John's. One of the real pleasures of this job will be travelling to all over the island. Last week I went to Kings Point and visited Linda and David at Kings Point Pottery. My photo's don't do justice to the beauty of their work and what they have created in that gorgeous spot. Luckily I'll get to visit them again!
