The Olympic Flame

So exciting to see the Olympic Flame as it passed through our town today! There were LOTS of people along the route and around the Magna Ctr - It was a VERY Proud Canadian Moment!
Went early enough to get a close-up view and no one was disappointed - lots to see, plenty of cheering and singing - everyone caught the Olympic Spirit today! Front row and the action was right there in front of us! They put on a great show and the residents who were there will have a lifetime memory - so proud to see a local torchbearer, Clare, carry it up on stage and light the Olympic Cauldron!
If The Flame is coming close to your town, it is well worth the time and effort to get to see it!

Happy Birthday Arrangement for Barbara!

My friend Sheryl and her sister Carolyn wanted to give their Mom an extra-special, everlasting gift of clay flowers to celebrate a milestone birthday! With the colour direction of white/creme and orange, I was given artistic freedom to create a low-and-long arrangement for the dining room table.
Using roses in various shades of orange and creamy white roses with slightly tinted centers, this arrangement is very elegant punctuated with the creamy gardenias. I have recently modified my gardenia making technique and am THRILLED with how this arrangement turned out.
Shhhhh, the birthday party isn't until Sunday. Happy Birthday Barbara!

Holiday and Wintry Arrangements

Some photos of Christmas and Wintry Arrangements that I have been working on! Can you believe that they are made from air-dry clay? I am amazed how great they look when transformed from my work table into a hand-designed arrangement that will brighten someone's day and look great on a holiday table...or how terrific for a reception table at a winter wedding!
If you are in the Newmarket area tomorrow, there is an Open House Shopping Event that I am participating in. There will be several product lines available as well as a showcase of my clay flower designs! There will be many shoppers who will be seeing clay flowers for the first time - can't wait to hear their comments!
The event is at the Bowen Therapy Clinic in The Newmarket Plaza (130 Davis Drive, Unit 4) from 2-8pm. There will be lots to look at and shop from as well as refreshments, door prizes and shopping fun! Please drop by if you are in the area.
