Fort Saskatchewan River fest 2017


As I mentioned earlier I was invited to exhibit my art at the final day of the Epcore Riverfest. A celebration of the North Saskatchewan River. This was the first year that Fort Saskatchewan has participated and they wanted a local Artist presence to add to the exhibit.

I was originally supposed to set up inside the pavilion but the weather was nice and the exposure was better outside so I had a gorgeous albeit chilly location and got to meet with some wonderful people as they took in the beauty surrounding us.

Here are a few pictures and pieces of the day.

Big thank you to everyone that came by for a look, sale or chat!

Time for an Update


Hello my poor neglected subscribers I’ve yet again abandoned you to go on a creative frenzy.

Sometimes I feel like being an Artist is like a boat on the ocean; sometimes I’m overwhelmed by the waves of creativity and other times I’m drifting on still waters.

The last few months I’ve definitely been tossed about creatively. It seems it’s all I can do to get the ideas out of my head fast enough.

So let me catch you up on a few things. I’ve of course been busy with my hand stamped Jewelry business as well as the whole art studio aspect of life.

I’ve become the secretary for the Society of Fort Saskatchewan Artists so that’s new

and I continue to be a member of CIVA Christians in the Visual Arts and am now listed in their artists guide.

I’ve also had a solo and a group exhibit at the Fort Saskatchewan City Hall Art nook Gallery.

Here’s a pic of my latest pieces on display

If you’d like to see more on the creation of these 2 check out and follow me on Instagram for daily posts at milke.amanda

So those are up on exhibit until the end of the month.

Tomorrow I am attending River fest as celebration of the North Saskatchewan River in Fort Saskatchewan. They invited me to attend the Artisan Fair so I’ve been busy prepping art for that. Including these new pieces.

And trust me that’s not everything! So as you can tell I’ve been insanely busy. If I’m not painting, I’m hand stamping and being a stay at home mom and training a new puppy

So now we have 2 munchkins and 2 poochies and a whole lot of busy daily life.

And starting Monday I’m also back to teaching some public art classes

And in all this crazy creative chaos I’ve been extra busy with my home based business growing over 300% this year and we’re only into September! My customers must think I’m doing an ok job since my business was nominated for the following awards from the Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce.

So now I need to go dress shopping so I can attend the Awards Gala in October and see if I bring home a trophy.

So that pretty much sums up why I’ve been so busy and why we haven’t spoken for a while.

I’m hoping to eventually even with classes running and stamping orders to slow down a bit and not be so rushed. But until then, keep me loaded of paint and caffeine ๐Ÿ˜‰

Cheers for now!

Shiny & New


OK so I came down sick with a cold and haven’t had a chance to start on the guitar asides from prime it. I’ve been passing out pretty hard after the kids are in bed the last few nights so haven’t gotten anything done really asides from basic survival lol.

BUT a new order of supplies arrived today…

I’ve been wanting to dabble in hand stamping for awhile now but just haven’t gotten around to it until now, when I was asked to do a custom order as a Father’s Day Gift. So much fun ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll post pics of the completed project later.

This week however, I have to finish that order, go to the Farmers Market Thursday and I have the Downtown Sale on Saturday so I’m thinking the guitar will have to wait til next week sadly…but I do have yet another project stewing in my brain that involves a pair of wooden clogs ๐Ÿ˜‰ but I’ll save that for another post.

For now I’ll say goodnight & Cheers!
