I know it’s silly to start thinking about Christmas when summer’s not even over yet, but so is the life of a craftsperson. Usually August is the time when we all start stockpiling inventory; squirreling away pieces here and there earlier on, and then making a focused concerted effort in later months.
I’ll be showing at the One of A Kind Christmas Show in Toronto again this year from November 24th to December 4th. Instead of the 6 day show, I’ll be there the ENTIRE 11 days. 11 days of 12 hour days may not be everyone’s cup of tea (not counting show prep or setup/takedown), but those are the times where I thrive. Since I live on a farm, I am so happy to finally come out of my cavern and meet everyone who comes by my booth. I get to say hi to people who read my blog, visit my website, or “like” something on social media, and it helps me put a face to an avatar.
Ah. Anyway. Sorry about that reminder that Christmas is coming. I’m heading back to squirreling now ;).

It’s garden harvest time. Today for lunch I picked these gorgeous deep red beets, and when I cut them up, all the gorgeous patterns and angles were just begging to be photographed.
There is inspiration everywhere!
I’m so happy to be able to share photos from this collaboration with so many great people for a lovely woodsy bohemian wedding shoot. With Melissa Johnstone from Sugar and Soul Photography behind the lens, everyone worked together to create a gorgeous result.

I’ll be at the Royal Bison this weekend, May 6-8th. The last time I was in Edmonton was in October for my Discovery Tour, so I can’t wait to visit again and see everyone!
I will have my engagement and wedding ring collections to try on and order, as well as many many one of a kind pieces to take home. I’ve been busy experimenting with a few things, as well as keeping true to a few classics, so please come by and try on all the things. This year I’m in the little room, beside the zany amazingness that is Jill Pollock’s art collages.
