Seasons Greetings From Pentiction

This is it! From now on the days get longer. I am looking forward to the summer but not before the relatively laid back days of January, February and March. Horizons is coming in February and I am hoping to get it together this year to offer a few classes. I love polymer clay as a medium and enjoy sharing what I know. It also doesn't hurt to bay the rent in the months of no markets.

Rejoice the sun is up more and more each day. Time to plant seeds - both figurative and literal.

The ever popular bugs.

Saturday was a splendid Farmers Market and the end of the market year for me. Sunday a day of rest and Monday I received my acceptance to the Creative Chaos Craft Fair in Vernon at the beginning of June 2011. So away I go again chasing after markets for the new year. Markets are kind of like carnivals where you get to be the entertainment and know the other clowns and animals. When you setup, you see many familiar faces and there is a rush of adrenaline that gets you through the long days but best of all there is a feeling of family that they don’t all agree they are in it together even when there is a feeling of competition.

Nice light in the neighbourhood.

Stitch markers – a good idea?

All Done but One

This weekend is the Farmers Market at the Croatian Center. Always fun and it has the added attraction of being the last of the season. My mind is already planning next years activities but I also looking forward to knitting something out of Carmen wonderful wool. Just a little something before I get my hands back in the clay.

At Seymour Art gallery the Winter Market continues to until January 09, 2011. Sarah has done a great job of combining the work of many artists. Just look!

And in this white sea my little fish also get to swim.
