Summer road trip to Elora

Creative Spark in the Yard in Elora
In a little over a week I will be one of 45 exhibitors at the Elora Centre for the Arts presents Creative Spark in the Yard. Plan a road trip to the quaint town of Elora and check out the wonderful village and shoppes around the corner from the the newly renovated Elora Mill. Each day of the show there will be live music and food trucks to go with the wonderful, summer weather.

Toronto Yoga Conference

At the end of this month, I will be an exhibitor at the Toronto Yoga Conference. I attended this event last year, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.  This is a great show for the novice to the expert; even if you haven’t performed a single downward facing dog, this is a great place to check it out. You can choose to take a variety of classes, or simply stroll about and check out the hundreds of exhibitors.

Last year I discovered a amazing facial moisturizer at the Healthy Planet booth, wonderful skin care products from Toronto-based Parkdale Butter, and I bought the amazing Canadian Kickstarter-funded Knix Wear bra. All of these vendors will once again be at this show. I am so excited (for all the shopping opportunities)!

I am busy creating new canvases, making hand-bound journals and maybe conjuring up some surprises!

journaling the journey

journaling the journey

Currently, I am on a journal-making frenzy! I was asked to make a large travel journal as a wedding present for newlyweds travelling around the world on their honeymoon. I loved the finished product so much, it gave me a bit of travel fever! I love to re-use old books, tons of ephemera as well as incorporating my art into the pages.

I will have a brand new batch of them November 12 in Uxbridge at the USS Drama Students Fundraiser. Check out my events page for more information.

Currently, my art is also on display at beyondCRAFT at the Latcham Gallery in Stouffville throughout the weekend.

I am fortunate to have a lovely supply of very old, western red cedar at my disposal to play with. So along with my wanderlust series of photographic images I have taken in my travels & transferred onto wooden blocks, I have decided to use this wood to showcase my mixed-media images.

Some blocks have the live edge on them, others do not & instead all the sides are painted. They are wonderfully heavy; they can be put on a book shelf or stand beside a lamp on a end table. And of course they can easily be hung up on a wall.

My latest Joggles Design Team project can be seen in its entirety on the Joggles blog. I really enjoyed creating this wooden house with a photo I took in Paris. It was one of several shots I had taken atop the Arc d’Triomphe. I had walked the perimeter of the arch taking photos that I hope to piece together one day. These views were some of my favourite photos & memories of our 10 day stay in Paris back in 2010.
