Friday Studio Update – Brrrr.

Good Morning! I LOVE working in a historic building, but I need to upgrade the heating options in my small space. Looks like wind chills will stay in the 30s today, so even if my sandwich board sign on the sidewalk were to stay up, it’s going to be awfully chilly all day. I’ll be darting in and out but not keeping regular hours. Please email or text or call if you need me – Thanks!!

NOTE for next week – For Feb. 26, my shop will be open as usual on Wednesday, 12 noon to 4:30 p.m, but I will be traveling on Thursday and Friday for an author/poet school visit.

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!
