I'm working away! I stopped for some turkey in Edmonton, St Alberta and Jackfish Lake... and now I'm back in the studio finishing up framing of my new embroideries. I have a stack of new Prairie Postcards, postcard embellishments / supplies, art print greeting cards, snow globes, a variety of framed threadpaintings in all sizes and price points including a dozen minis. Saturday is my Open Studio! If you are unable to attend, please know that I will be listing available art for sale next week online for the folks that live too far away.
You can click on the linked title below to go directly to the invite poster for details on the date, time and location. : )
I am looking forward to Saturday, October 17th very much. Check it out!
I am so there. I love lining up in the morning and poking around through all the supplies there. If you are unable to attend, you can donate a couple days before that. It's great incentive to destash and help out a good cause.
Later that day...
YAY! I am really excited to host another open studio. It wasn't too busy but steady all day last year. Again, I will have art for sale, from $ to $$$ and everything in between. I will have cards, threadpaintings, snowglobes, hand embroidery, some prairie postcards too. There's a good chance my children will greet you with their own handmade sale. My 9 yr old makes earrings, and my 12 yr old makes leather crafts. I'll be sure to leave out a guest comment book if you'd like to offer kind words in lieu of shopping. We'll have munchies and bubbly, coffee and tea, smiles and hugs and music too. You are welcome to pop in any time between 1pm and 8 pm.
Yes - the moon. She was lovely as always. Like most others with a camera, I snapped my own images of her from the deck of my home. The night was clear and the timing was great. My kids were out in the backyard enjoying with me.
I love that the days are still warm. We've had a few warm nights still and were able to sleep with the windows open, though the colours continue to change with the season.
That is the tree over my back deck. I do love the yellow so very much, especially when it's illuminated in the light! Many trees are still green. A few are bare since the last big wind. This next one from Sutherland Beach is so great - look how much space it takes up! It's my son's favourite. He stopped in his tracks to say, 'WOAH. LOOK at that tree!'
The paths at that off leash park are so gorgeous and a tad spooky. I love being able to look past the gnarly dark branches to see sunlit areas. It's like mini tree forts for little ones.
It's not just the trees... but the grasses change colour too. I love when I find orange and red grasses in the natural parks. They are so beautiful and they glow when the sun hits them. This batch looked pretty at the top of a retaining wall along a path.
Okay, one more photo! This bush is great - the leaves look like coins from a way back: red and gold and burgundy and yellow spots of colour.
Isn't that lovely!? What a great September it has been. Happy October, and Happy Thursday to you! : )
