It's true. Summer is just arriving and I am busy filling out applications and paying fees for Christmas craft shows. I've been filling in applications and I'm starting to think about building up my inventory. This year I will be at the Glass Bead Show taking place at the RA Centre in October. In November I'll be showing at the All Saints Craft Fair in Kanata and in December I'll be back at the Fisher Park Pop-Up Christmas Market. I can't wait! Stay tuned for details in the very near future.
As I get closer and closer to retirement I'm dreaming of all the extra time I will have to torch and take advantage of lots of opportunities to sell my jewelry on a more frequent basis.
In the meantime, I've been working away in my little studio in the basement and creating some new pieces and experimenting with some off-mandrel work.
I've also been working very hard on my Instagram page, slowly building a following and diligently posting a new picture every day.
With the beautiful weather here my garden calls me and it will be hard to be indoors but I will make use of every rainy day that comes along.
