And… It’s November!

Many thanks to all who kept my shop humming for Art Walk on October 26 and First Friday on November 1! I appreciate the conversation, the encouragement, and of course – the $upport!

Last in, first out… I had just finished making this small collage with a page from an antique 
book, vintage typewriter parts, and a vintage clock face, and it sold first on First Friday!

Special thanks to Anne Glaze for lending a hand for Art Walk, and for artsyletters regular Kim Poovey for all the help on First Friday.

With my partner in historical and literary mischief & artsyletters
Chief Creative Promotional Officer, Kim Poovey.
I love happy customers!!

*Hurricane Days*

We are safely away from the shore – hope to reopen soon after the storm!
Appreciations for all of the emergency management folks, power crews, and other helpers.
Prayers and wishes for safety for all along our coast, and keeping those in the Bahamas close in thoughts. They will need continued prayers and tangible help for some time.

Hobbled/Hopeful July/August Update….

Greetings! After a follow-up at the orthopedist’s office, I was able to give the crutches the boot – :0) – but I’ll be IN the boot until the end of August. I’m only able to work on a limited basis in coming weeks, but I’ve re-opened my Etsy Shop online.  (The 10 percent off no-coupon-needed sale for July is still on!) Open Studio hours will resume in earnest for fall, beginning with First Friday downtown, Sept. 6, 5-8 p.m. (For next week’s First Friday, Aug. 2, come celebrate The Beaufort Emporium‘s 3rd Birthday!! 905 Bay Street. Cupcakes and nice give-aways!! I’ll be there, happy to mingle at ground level. ;0) )

Update – Hobbled but Hopeful….

Greetings! So, I managed to fracture the distal end of my fibula (at ankle). One should really be looking where one is walking instead of turning one’s head to converse, especially when there is a chunk of sidewalk missing.

I am very anxious to get back in the studio! It is up a steep flight of stairs, though, so I need to get the okay from the ortho doc’s office. Since I can’t walk to work at the moment – waa! – or drive, logistics will be a little tricky here in the immediate future, but – where there is a will, there’s a way, and I’m pretty strong-willed. I hope to get my Etsy shop back online in a few days. Thanks for all the good wishes!

July Open Studio Hours

(*UPDATE*: 7-15: well, now I’ve gone and fractured a bone in my ankle. Not sure when I can resume regular hikes up the stairs & regular hours, but I hope soon!! Thanks. See above for latest! )

(UPDATE:  The studio will be closed July 11 & 12 as I will be traveling out of town for a funeral. We’ll be open several days during Water Festival – look for the sign out front. Thanks!)

Happy JULY! I’m busy in the studio & will open this month for FIRST FRIDAY, July 5, 5-8 p.m. Then, hours will be on the flexible side, with some extra open days during WATER FESTIVAL! :0) See you soon!
