I’ve been working hard on creating a new website that brings together my website, the blog and my online store. I’m really excited to launch it today. I’m hoping you’ll check it out and let me know what you think. You can find it here: https://www.amberchurchart.com This also means that moving forwards this blog will be discontinued. I’ve moved a curated archive of this blog to the new site, and if you check it out you’ll notice that I’ve been […]

Use this link to get 30% at my Etsy store. If you happen to live in Whitehorse, Yukon then shipping costs can be refunded if you’re happy to pick it up or have it delivered instead of having it mailed. Use this […]

When I was in elementary school I had a teacher with Ukrainian heritage. Every year at Easter she would work with all of the students in the school (we had a one room school for kindergarten to grade three – the benefit of growing up in a really small town) to create pysanka – Ukrainian Easter eggs. I’ve loved creating these eggs at Easter ever since. In the past I’ve taught my husband how to make them, but our creations […]
A couple of months ago Tyler and I had a Hot Date at Lumel Studios in Whitehorse. Lumel is an amazing glass blowing studio in Whitehorse whose artists split their time between creating stunning works in glass and teaching other how to create their own blown glass masterpieces. Over the course of our date we create paperweights, a flower, a bowl and a blown glass ball between us. It was incredibly fun – we’re hooked! Lumel works with their students […]
I made my most elaborate gingerbread house ever! The whole thing is made from scratch and is completely edible. The skating rink and the gnarled tree are made of sculpted candy canes (which involved some burned finger tips); the evergreen trees are sugar cones rolled in white chocolate coloured green and then decorated; and the rest is mountains of gingerbread, icing and candy.
The 12 Days of Christmas started on Friday at the Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre. I have a display set up in partnership with fused glass artist, Aimee Ellis. I have prints, art cards, pins, magnets, necklaces featuring original artworks, and original canvases and matted ink and watercolour paintings. I thought you might like a few glimpses of some of the new work that was created for the show.
