*My Crows* *My Art* *My Way*

Sunday, July 17, 2016

Hi Everyone!!
Hope you're all well!!

First, let's talk about the mail! The mail is being delivered across Canada and out of Canada. "Talks" are still going on about everything!
So, technically, you can mail!
But, saying that, if an agreement doesn't come, then Canada post gives a 72 hour notice and a strike could happen. If this does, all mail stops. Even if it's something in transit, the parcel/letter, will sit in a holding area, until the strike is over.
So, really, it's up to you right now, what you want to do. Personally, I am going to keep my shop closed till the end of July and open everything up in August. I might start mailing a couple of things out, that I have been holding on to.
If anything changes, I will let you know, right away.

I finished another aceo (2.5" x 3.5")
"First Kiss"
And, do you remember "Frederick"?
I finished him! Again, it was a pain taking pictures! The background is more of a pale grey, but in my photos, it kept coming up more blue. I even took the pictures in the shade. I hope it looks ok for all of you! The second picture is more closer to the background colour. Enjoy!
Have a wonderful day! Smile, Dance, Love!!!
Big Hugs!!!

  3. A mail strike would be a pain, especially for people whose livelihoods depend upon the email getting through. I love you work.

  5. First Kiss is super adorable. Always a cute moment. :) I am loving Frederick! I hope Canada Post can come to an agreement this month. I thought I blocked Canada in my Etsy shops but an order came through overnight. I am going to ship it and keep my fingers crossed!

  6. "First Kiss" is sooo cute. And "Frederick" looks so stylish.

    You seem to be dealing rather well with the post office issues. Some of my other friends with online shops in Canada are rather upset.

  7. Frederick is still great!

    Is the mail thing common? I mean, has it just been lately or is it something people up there have come to expect?

  13. Fredrick is such a handsome crow - LOL!!! And first kiss is magical!!! You did it again Stacy!!! Canadian post must live in another world than we do - how damaging for the country!!!!

  14. Beautiful work as always Stacy! Frederick is quite dapper and distinguished!! I love seeing the progress of that piece too! The little additions/subtractions and how it makes the final composition pop. It has to be endlessly frustrating with the mail being on such uncertain ground! I don't think I have had an order to Canada since the issue first came to light but that's to be expected. It's funny how much, despite the "internet age", we still all rely on the mail for so many things.

  17. "Frederick" and "First Kiss" are wonderful! They are so creative. It definitely can be difficult to get accurate colors sometimes... I'm sorry about the mail situation. I hope it gets positively resolved soon.

  18. I really like the background in Frederick's room. The cross hatching/lines with the bit of red and the overall mood. He's a powerful crow. Hope the mail gets back to normal asap.

  19. Hi Stacy! It's cool with me to wait out the "talks". The mail freaks me out too much even when nothings going on,lol. Love both of your new pieces. I know when I take pics in the shade they always get a blue cast to them too. I have to use the "white balance" feature on the camera especially when taking snow shots in the shade. However, blue is still my fave color!
