Visit the shop of "Jane Rovers", from Halifax, to view her stunning artwork... All of her pieces are created using her original photographs that are digitally altered and transferred onto canvas! Each piece is original and unique! Just stunning!
We're off to another family wedding in London tomorrow... An outdoor wedding, at high noon... My cousin Jon is marrying Esther... And I wish I had seen this lovely plate by "Sugar Street Cafe"... It would have made a spectacular wedding gift...

The "Fall 2008 Indie Spotlight on Emerging Artists", part of "Indie Shopping" went live yesterday... The picture of my "Roman Holiday" bracelet is the feature photo for the jewelry boutique and I've got a feature spot within! Very exciting!

It's been a very busy couple of days... Exciting... But busy... When I started selling my jewellery on Etsy back in early June, I could never have dreamed how quickly it would grow... I'm sending off two more wholesale orders today with a few others in the works... So that's it for my post... While little B is sleeping quietly, I must work!
Stay tuned... I'm hoping to make some wonderful new items this weekend... Lord willing!
Have a great weekend friends!
I just adore the work of Kate, from Ottawa, that she sells in her lovely shop, "Urban Basement"... I could stare at her photographs for hours... And being that fall is almost here, I revel in the fact that they remind me of my favourite season, spring! You can purchase her stunning photos as prints, postcards & notecards.
"Be still and know that I am God..."
The Lord has been continually bringing these words to my mind over the past few days... Life has been exceptionally busy... With little B to take care of, a house to clean, meals to make, and orders to fill, I've been struggling to find the time to "be still" and think about my God... That is my prayer today... That I will have the strength, through God's grace, to "be still and know that [He] is God"...
"Be still, my soul: begin the song of praise
On earth, believing, to Thy Lord on high;
Acknowledge Him in all thy words and ways,
So shall He view thee with a well pleased eye.
Be still, my soul: the Sun of life divine
Through passing clouds shall but more brightly shine."
Katharina von Schlegel, 1752
I absolutely adore the shop of Kristy from Toronto, "Dear Sukie"... She creates vinyl covered wallets, mini wallets, wallet clutches and card holders... They are just stunning, practical and affordable... You can also create your own piece by choosing the design you'd like as well as the pattern! Right now, Kristy is offering a special deal... Just mention how you found out about her in the "Message to Seller" and she'll give you 10% off of her regular prices!
We spent a rainy Saturday and Sunday with Jay's family up at their cottage on Britain Lake, near Tobermory... The weather made it a cozy, indoor weekend, in which I was able to get a great deal of creating done... So... Introducing the Britain Lake collection...
