Mike (much adored nephew) in Hong Kong

Change is as good as a rest

Finished one deadline & thrust into another & another ... & another - yikes it's a definite big ol' beautiful case of
be careful what you wish for. Thought I'd mention a few upcoming summertime newsy bits

I've booked a flight (!). I'm going to Toronto for the Toronto Gift Show where my new jewellery collection (hopefully) will be launching and I'll be staying with Michael - hooray ! 3 nights 2 days.

Haven't booked a flight since 2004 which was an unbelievable Cinderella-like travel year for me. Beginning in January when best friend & designer gal MLou and I went to Paris (my 3rd visit to that incredible city) for a week to be stunned & inspired by the beauty & the glory of the city itself and of the huge Maison Objet Gift & Home Decor show. Then in April, I was working with Jerry Kohl and the fabulous LA base company Brighton Collectibles and was invited to go on a 6 day, 5 star trip to Hong Kong, Taipeii & into mainland China - Shut !! UP !! Hong Kong a beautiful and amazing city, part modern concrete jungle part lush green rainforest jungle - would go back in a blink. Then back for a 10 day stint working in Los Angeles at the main Brighton headquarters - a once in a life time, complete fairytale trip that I still feel incredibly grateful for. & that August I went to New York for the New York International Gift Show and much walking and touring around on foot. I do love those condensed walking cities like Paris, Hong Kong & NYC. Petite jet-setter that year, was I ;-)

I'm teaching my first collage/mixed media workshop at the ChatterBox Cafe pop-up art space (if you live nearby I'd love to see you). Sunday August 19th 1-4pm. Please call 902 243-2769 to register

I'm having my first little art show - beginning July 31st also at the ChatterBox Cafe pop-up art space.

An overnight visit from Molly - on her way back to school end at the end of August, beginning of September. Uh Huh ! Molly - much adored niece, sister of Mike - I'm hoping she'll stay a few nights

just heard this song ... on fav CBC radio 1 morning show Q - Robbie Robertson (with the BoDeans) xoxo
