Crawled Away and Circling Next Year

The Culture Crawl was a smashing success. We had over 1000 visitors through our living room. Circle Craft was also a success so I will be doing it again next year.

Thanks to Jem’s friend Irene for sending me this picture from Circle Craft.

Now there is the Christmas sale at Arts Off Main this weekend and the Farmers Market on December 11th then I can get back to the serious business of claying.

Full Circle

Well my first year at Circle Craft is over. It was great. Thanks to Mayu for getting me into the swing of things, Nancy and Ellen for helping me stay on the straight and narrow, Adrienna for her smile and retail savvy, and all the hands and minds that got me through is first big one. I will not forget the Max for not being too cool and Hugh for putting up with me.

But here is the news. There were four other artisans at the show that use polymer clay. Two of them were selling Christmas d├ęcor items exclusively. Then there is the wonderful Wanda Shum and Sophieori from Montreal.

Fairies, Angels and more from Vancouver Islands Mirella

That’s it for today I am off to help put up the ‘Winter Gift Gallery at Seymour Art Gallery.

So This is It!

Starting at 10:00 this morning my first ever Real Big Show. My neighbour Mayu will be there to get me off to a good start. Thanks Mayu.

My booth already to go

Rain is forecasted but it is big warm and wonderful inside. I can’t wait to see how it looks finished. Yesterday I watch people setting up a forest of Christmas trees and there is a great long house with native artists. If we are not to busy it will be great to look around and it we are to busy that will be great too.

B124 – That’s me.

Almost in the Circle

It's almost here. Set up tomorrow and opening Wednesday. Production is done, packaging almost and ideas of what I will do when it is all over floor back into my mind. I can't wait to get back to making the new, the wonderful and the moderately useful. There are so many that have supported me in the last few months. In their help and tolerance. Now I just have to make it to next Sunday.

Getting Along Swimmingly

Passed worry. I am quite pleased with these latest sculptures. So much depends on a new drill press and a diamond bit. There is nothing like biting into rock to give a girl confidence. I love my drill press.

The largest fish is about 8 inches and the smallest is about 3 and a half
