Mistletoe Craft Show In Sudbury Ontario

I wanted to spend a few minutes of my morning saying "thank you" to all the great folks we met at this years Mistletoe Craft show (held at St. Charles College) in Sudbury this year!

We had a SUPER time and enjoyed every minute!

The volunteer students were wonderful and we loved having the help to get our gear in and out of the building. Thanks!

We met some wonderful people and passed along some wisdom.

Thanks everyone!

Vikki and Family
See you next year!

Manitoulin Island Camping - Haweater Weekend

Greetings!
I was asked to post some information for those who would like to know about camp grounds on Manitoulin Island during Haweater Weekend.

Here is some information:

The best played I EVER stayed on Manitoulin Island was here but be warned - they book FAST and quick - Providence Bay Park. phone: 705)377-4650 or toll free 1 877 269-2018. Ici on parle fran├žais. Email: prov_bay_park@hotmail.com I say this is the best as I had the best time - the folks were very nice and friendly and we always stayed in the same location (on the South tip of the camp grounds near where the road turns left again. It's very rustic and the walk to the bathroom is loooong but well worth it.

Now to the list - and they are all wonderful. DO make note and ask how far a drive when you ask for accomodations - some of these places are a good 45 min away from Little Current.

Art in Bloom - Sudbury Ontario


What a day it was!

This is only part of the display area that we had - located outside in the General Hospital area of Sudbury Ontario. Art in Bloom is a fundraising event for artisans and crafters to help out the Sudbury Mental Health Society - a portion of all profits that the artists make during this one day sale, go directly to SMHS.

We were located at the main entrance of the show - beside a few other very talented and creative artists who worked with jewelry, stained glass, wood and some wonderfully tasty treats. Situated directly in the sun, with no tent, all the stones just shone like diamonds in the sun beams! The wind blew the chimes we had for sale making soft gentle sounds throughout the day.

The promoters of the show were wonderful! Fully staffed to host a tea for the guests who came to the show, we were treated with generosity and kindness. Volunteers for this event spent many hours in the hot sun handing out water and food for the vendors. I was impressed by the quality of the food served during the tea and delighted by meeting more of the Sudbury Red Hat Society women.

As for the products available? There was a very good selection of artisans - from pottery, photography, gemstone, beads, glasswork, woodworking, wonderfully yummi treats to eat and more, there was something for everyone at this event.

I cant wait for next year!

Art Outside


We got a little creative on the sidewalk recently and added some pretty pictures.

DUCK~


Spring brought about many changes - one them a family of Mallards living in the back yard. They have been quite demanding looking for breakfast, lunch AND supper every single day. :-)

It's been pretty interesting tho... it brings a whole new meaning to the word "DUCK!" in our yard.... The Mallards use our yard as a main flight path and SWOOP down over the peak of the house and down towards the creek. It's one thing to have a sparrow fly right over your head, quite another to have an extremly fast duck wizz past you while working in the yard. Posted by Hello
