Successful Show this weekend

Here are some of my new pieces that I brought to the SIRCH show - "Love" sculpture and "Stringed" amulet. I talked with some great people, did some trades, had some sales and made good contacts. I would say it was worth the scary snowy drive to and from Minden.

Thank You Letter from Grades 3/4 for Workshop!

I received this lovely thank you letter from my daughter's french immersion class at Riverside P.S. A couple of weeks ago I went in for a few hours with a box of Brazilian Soapstone pieces and my tools for them to carve small sculptures. I should have brought my camera to capture their creations. There was a turtle, a cat, a peace sign and so on... some sculptures turned into heavy necklaces LOL! - I hadn't brought my drill for making holes because we were making sculptures and some of these kids "drilled" by hand spinning my tools to make their own necklace holes, great determination. This letter was so sweet and they all signed their names on the back with additional comments such as this one which is my favourite:
"the tools were extrodenarily magnifisent"

Riverside Arts and Crafts Show

The Riverside Arts and Crafts Show this weekend was great. Nice to talk to people walking by and I had some sales too (plus a great trade with another vendor which is always fun!)
