saying goodbye to spring and summer

Although we may have more warm days ahead, Labour Day weekend signifies the end of summer for many of us. Whether you have kids getting ready to go back to school, cottages to close up for winter or yards to rake and summer furniture to pack away for another year, the weather today seems like fall has arrived. I enjoy every season, however as I perused some photos taken of my garden this spring and summer, I can't help but feel a bit sad to see the garden season approaching it's end for another year...

With a new season approaching, new challenges also arrive. For the first time I am able to design creations for fall and Halloween. In the past, I would have been closing my store and reorganizing for Christmas. I have been remiss in posting my W.I.P. Wednesdays, partly because I did not want to show the fall designs too soon. I figured in keeping with the mood of the weekend I could give you a sneak peek of one of the new designs.

One last note for today. I was not looking at a Canadian calender when I set the dates for the fall workshops. Without realizing it I had scheduled one of the classes for the thanksgiving weekend. Thankfully this was brought to my attention by someone who wanted to take the workshop, (Thanx Diane and Carla) so I have changed the date as follows;

Folkart Pumpkin head
Sunday October 16, 10am-4pm $70.00

In the spirit of Halloween you will sculpt this ghoulish pumpkin head using an air drying paperclay. It will be painted and embellished and set on a decorative base you paint. This workshop is for all skill levels. All materials are supplied including a light lunch.
faerie wishes and pixie giggles. Until next time...
