Getting Ready for Fall!

Getting ready for the fall show season is always a little hairy! I have been gearing up all summer: picking stones, washing stones, painting stones!  But there are also letters to write, cards to fold and get in sleeves, contests to plan, (more information coming out soon!) orders to complete and stores to fill with stock.
This summer I also opened a Etsy store with my cards which added a bunch of paper and ink to the mayhem! 
I love this time of year because it is full of excitement and deadlines. I look so forward to participating in all the beautiful shows and meeting and seeing lots of exuberant people.

Above are a batch of stones with positive sayings that were just sent to the Blue Heron in Kenora. 

Enjoy the fall colors and talk to you soon!

P.S. Please stay tuned for my fall show updates and contest announcement! 
Yay!

Summer Drawing

I have been drawing on paper to practice some skills. It really is such a change from working on stone and I feel a little out of practice!   I love using pen and ink, copic pens (why do they make so many colors!!!!) and working with thick, rich papers.  The door in the picture is taken from one of the hundred doors that I photographed when I was away last year. The turquiose door was on the beautiful and colorful island of Procida.
