I am having a one day OPEN HOUSE tomorrow which is Saturday, August 20th. It is also Cactus Festival in Dundas, so there is lots of activity and lots to do and see.
Last year, I was going to exhibit at the festival but my arm was broken, and so I decided to hold an open house. This worked out really well. A sign went out front that my studio was open and I did send out a few emails. This is a similar endeavour. If you didn’t get a notice, I do apologize.

I have concentrated on making earrings. There are a number of new bracelets and necklaces as well. I remember when I started designing and making jewellery. I really didn’t like making earrings, but I find myself quite enamoured of it now. Part of the fun has been finding new findings. (is this a pun??). A great supplier in California has some unusual pieces and you will see some tomorrow. The rest I am saving for the studio tour in October. It seems far away, but time soldiers on, not at a walk but at a run.

There was a huge rain yesterday, part of which fell during the Cactus Festival parade. It is a given that it will rain at some time during this festival. My first show several years ago was at this festival and it did pour. I have to date missed exhibiting twice. Once because we were on a cruise to the Baltic and Russia, and the second time last. But I fear my outdoor exhibiting days are over. I shall carry on at my home and studio. Beautiful gardens and a lovely Victorian home…..can’t get a much better setting than that.
I hope to see you tomorrow!!
