Create & Teach


Let’s ignore the fact that I haven’t posted for awhile….

I’ve been fairly busy on a teaching and creating kick must be that new hand 😉

This is one of my newest classes and artistic endeavors. I’ve been on a 3D Mixed media kick lately. I’ll be offering it again in 2017.

So here let me flood you with some pictures of what I’ve been doing these last months. The advertised piece is complete and the rest are one layer away from being finished.

I seem to be in good standing with my artist muses as of late so pardon me while I get back to it 😉

If you’re in the Fort Saskatchewan / Edmonton Alberta area and want to give the gift of ART to that creative person in your life I have a promo going on.

Shoot me a msg on my Facebook page to take advantage of this gem of a deal 🎨

Cheers 

May your days & nights be creative 🖌

Home Parties!!!


The other thing that has been keeping me busy with limited blogging time has been this “Home Party” initiative that I’m rolling out!

I figured after setting up at so many venues and meeting so many wonderful customers it was time to bring the venue to them. So be it ever so humble or virtual Parties are now an option!

Hosts can earn free Jewelry and have it custom made & designed specifically for them.

Theme parties are also available.
Celebrating a Birthday (kids & adults), Girls Night, Wedding, Graduation, Christmas, etc. Get Jewelry designed to suit your special occasion.
Make & Take Party Packs are also available (must be booked 2-3 weeks in advance to allow for supplies on hand)

If you’re in cyberspace and want your friends worldwide to participate then you can host a virtual party, get a unique code for your party and shop online through my Etsy shop. Best of all you still earn all your Host rewards and your guests receive free shipping or some other discount for participating. Great way to get inexpensive or custom Gifts. *hint hint Christmas* 😉

Even cooler, make it an ART & Jewelry Party. Have a soirée, serve some appetisers, glass of wine and have a private Art viewing with your friends plus earn a discount towards a custom piece of Art.

The possibilities are endless.
Contact me to book today!

Falling into Autumn


Don’t you just love Fall!
Spring & Summer are great but there’s just something about Fall that’s lovely.
Crunch of crisp leaves, red, orange, yellow & brown earthy pallet of colours, cool fall air and the smells of Harvest with its baking & preserving. Yep definitely my favourite season.

But with the arrival of Fall we have to bid adieu to Summer and with it the end of the Farmers Market.
This Thursday is our last Farmers market for the season.

It’s been a great year with so many wonderful customers! I look forward to next years…though admittedly I am looking forward to the break from setting up my tent and being at the mercy of Mother Nature..(who I swear saved all her “colourful” weather for Thursday nights).
But all the same it was a wonderful summer, met some wonderful customers and worked beside some talented vendors and best of all got to watch my girls grow and experience the excitement of the weekly market.

As the saying goes, there is a season for everything and as we bid farewell to Summer with its outdoor markets we now move into Fall with its indoor venues and upcoming Christmas sales.

I’m especially looking forward to working on new inventory! So check back often as I start to showcase some new creations and post about my upcoming venues. It looks to be a busy & productive season.

So Hello Fall!

Cheers,
Amanda
