Sherwood Park and Area Etsians and Crafters

Check this out: SHERWOOD PARK SHOP

I know the ladies that are putting this event on and happily throw my support behind them and their ideas for this event. I think they are offering a fabulously affordable registration fee that covers rental and advertisement for the event. If you know anyone in the area who is looking for an opportunity to share, grow or launch a business idea, this event may be just the thing!

Ribbon Wand Tip

The best tip for the new Ribbon Wand user: Hold the Wand base pointing downwards and make a small tight stirring motion. Young users are tempted to hold the wand straight out in front of them and this often causes the ribbon to wind tight and tangle, rather than twirl. So the stirring move is a great first step to get used to moving the ribbon in a satisfying way.

July at Ribbon Wands

Photo taken during our trip to Banff.

I can't believe that it is almost the middle of July? I keep asking myself, "have I squeezed enough summer in the past 14 days?" I think me and my family have done an admirable job, but a rainy day seems to put me on edge in the summer, and make me wonder how many more summer days are before us. Hopefully more sunshine than rain awaits!

The shop is slowly filling up with wands again. Back from a summer holidays and time to get back to it in the studio! I have some fun palette ideas I'll be working on over the next week, so stay tuned for that. Hope you're enjoying summer in your corner of the world!
