Crazy Month

Miss me?

It’s been a crazy month and it’s only going to get crazier as we head into early September.

I’ve been busy at the local Farmer’s market selling (primarily) my jewelry and smaller artwork, this Thursday will be my 3rd week and then I am taking the next week off as we head to the Rockies

camping for our 9th Anniversary.

Once I get back I have Prenatal appointments, another week at the Market and then Munchkin and I fly to New Brunswick to visit family leaving hubby home to hold down the Fort (no pun intended, seeing how we live in Fort Saskatchewan, AB).

He’s offered to take over my table (sweet brave soul he is xox)  at the Last Market for the Season on Sept 5th so treat him nice and buy lots 😉

While all the chaos has been happening I’ve also been busy rearranging my studio and basement in general,

working on a few new paintings which I hope to complete when I get back in September

and I also signed up for a big Christmas Marketplace Sale happening on November 30th hosted by the local Chamber of Commerce.

So I’ll also be busy prepping handmade jewelry and art for gifts and stocking stuffers for that event.

But in the mean time I hope to have a few weeks of relaxing with family.

As a side note, I have cut a few prices on earrings and what not in my Etsy store so there’s no better time to shop 🙂

Bookmarks Gallore

Well as promised here’s a look at the bookmarks I’ve done up so far.

I haven’t added the ribbons or eyelets to all of them yet, but it gives you an idea of the immense color variety available.

They have a unique plastic/leather feel to them.

For those of you who missed my first bookmark post here’s the information again for you.

Colorful portable art for on the go people!

The perfect companion to any book and a unique Christmas gift for any book/art lover!
Each bookmark is hand painted using acrylic paint on acid and ligning free card stock.
It has been given a clear protective coat making it water resistant.
They measures 6″x2″ and feature a small eyelet with a co-coordinating ribbon that has been fray stopped.
The back side is plain black with a signed label. $4.00 each.
No two are alike! )

I’m hoping to have around 50 done up for the trade show in November.

If you’re interested in purchasing one or would like a particular color combination email me at themilkeway(at)gmail.com

Cheers!
