A Wonderful Studio Tour Weekend!

What a whirlwind leading up to the studio tour this past weekend.
We were busy finishing jewelry and fused glass pieces, putting final touches on displays, and creating our Mary Allen Studio tour sign to put in front of the house. The weekend started with a "walkabout" on Friday night for artists on the tour to see each other's work.
Even though it was dark and rainy, we were happy that quite a few artists stopped at our place to see our final set-up. It was great to travel to some other locations too, and to meet and chat with other artists on the tour. There's so much artistic talent among the Mary Allen Studio Tour participants!

On Saturday morning we put out the signs...

opened the front door...

and waited to see who would arrive....

What a busy weekend! We reconnected with friends and neighbours and made lots of new friends, too!

Thank you to all who were able to come to the studio tour. It was such a boost for us to have such a good turnout and to see your enthusiasm for our work.

We have spent the last few days catching our breath at the cottage. Yesterday, we got out our little foldable bikes and went on an adventure to Inverhuron to find some raw materials for our beach stone necklaces! Such an arduous task! Now we'll take a good look at our beach stone collection and start creating for the November show!

Happy Birthday, Angie!!!!
