That’s a wrap…as 2017 comes to a close in a few weeks, it was another successful year of paint classes, new friendships and learning not to over extend myself…..well, ok, that’s a tough one…I’m not sure I’ll ever learn that lesson, but I’m definitely improving. There are just so many ideas and wonderful conversations with people that ultimately lead to new projects and usually a trip to Michaels!

I want to thank everyone for a great year, your words of encouragement mean a lot to me as I build this business, your support and friendship are much appreciated 🙂

I want to share with you my exciting news for summer 2018! We began a big renovation in the barn next door on the same property where we have our vacation rental, Thyme By The Sea. We are located in the little seaside community of Creignish, ten minutes from the Canso Causeway. Now this is a barn I share with my husband and his ‘stuff’ but after some intense negotiations I claimed my space! It will be completed very soon and will be a gallery/gift shop where I can display my artwork and the work of other local artisans and their products. There will be coffee/tea and baked goods along with some chairs out front so you can enjoy the view in person, not just from my social media pages 🙂 so stay tuned and I’ll keep you updated with the progress!
