I was taking the train downtown yesterday, and after a while realised that a woman nearby was painting her nails.  The colour was an odd, but rather pretty, sea foamy blue.

Working on...

A few different things being worked on at the moment, including helping another artist with a run of her products she's getting ready for some winter shows. 

Next week I'm meeting with someone about a show/studio tour in October that I might be taking part in.  

Also met with someone today who purchased one of my butterfly frames as a gift for someone else, who'd seen me at TOAE, which (although it may be a little confusing to follow), is pretty neat.

Coming Soon

One of the next projects I'll be working on, and adding to my Etsy shop, is some evening purses.  I had a promo postcard with this image at the TOAE show over the weekend and it got lots of comments, so it's given me a push to make some.  I'm committed next to making wedding invites for a friend, so these evening purses won't be ready for a few weeks, and the design needs some tweaking so they won't be exactly like this, but they're being planned!

Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition

Well, I took it pretty easy yesterday, since the show on Friday through Sunday was so busy! Thank you to everyone who came to the show, it was great being supported by my friends & family, and meeting so many great people - both visitors and other artists.

Here's some photos from the show, my booth in this post, and some of my favourites to follow!

Busy getting everything prepped for the show starting Friday! Includes a bunch of new butterflies, some brooches of which are now in my Eyespot Designs Etsy shop, as well as heading to the show. I'll post some photos of the show next week. Wish me luck, and if you're in Toronto, drop by the show!
