July update

Holy heatwave!  I hope this wave is over sooner than later. I really don't function well in the humidity.

Good news! I have clay on the way. It has been soooo difficult to find proper miniature quality clay since the pandemic started. I buy my clay from Germany and it was hard getting stuff shipped from countries on lockdown.  I went to my local Michaels Craft store last week and the polymer clay section seems to be undergoing a major rehaul. There was a lot of liquid Sculpey products and molds and not a lot of solid hard clay :(

Canada Post seems to be shipping to more overseas locations now and counter service in my small town is slowly getting back to normal.

It doesn't look like I will be doing any craft or miniature shows this year. More time to plan for next year I guess. I was really looking forward to the "Art in the Park" shows.

I hope you all have a happy and healthy July!  Stay safe!

During the pandemic, the Town of Petrolia in Lambton County, Ontario, collected local recipes and put together this cool little online cookbook.
Recipes like Easy Quarantine Pizza, dill pickle dip and lots and lots of desserts (because it seems a large percentage of us rediscovered baking during quarantine :)
