is here and we have lots of fun things happening at Cornerstone this month!
Feb Fest is happening
ALL MONTH LONG
in DT Kingston and what better way to celebrate winter! Let's face it folks, we live in an area where snow & cold are with us for almost half the year so we may as well embrace it and make the best of it because it's not going away anytime soon (sorry)!
This month's featured artist is pet photographer, Lindy Martin. She specializes in pet photography however she shoots bigger animals like horses as well as amazing landscapes and action shots.
We think her work is purrrfect for this month!
Sunday February 10, from 11 AM - 1 PM, I will be giving another Zentangle class and this time we will feature a heart themed class in honour of Valentine's Day! There will be something in it for everyone from beginners to people who have already taken a class before. Don't like hearts? Don't worry we can find another shape for you to Zentangle!
From now until February 25th we are participating in National Cupcake Day and our online donation campaign to raise money for the Kingston Humane Society... AND we have sweetened the pot so read on to find out about our donation raffle and the amazing piece of art up for grabs!
Sunday February 17th from 1 PM - 4 PM we will be participating in the DBIA's Feb Fest event, "An Artsy Afternoon". Think of it as a daytime Art After Dark! Great art, craft & jewellery and light refreshments - A great way to spend a wintry, Sunday afternoon!
Cornerstone is also having weekly sales of up to 15% off some of your favourite items! From Feb1-Feb 7 we will be featuring some of our great mitts and winter hats and scarves (prepping you for all the Feb Fest outdoor fun!). From Feb 8-Feb 14 we are featuring some of our lovely jewellery like Black Drop Design, Anne Marie Chagnon, GAM, Manifest & Lynn Carr Designs, Karley Smith, and Moth Jewellery (bring your guys along to do a little Valentine's Day Shopping...). Feb 15- Feb 21 we are featuring our wooden boards and wooden servers and then wrapping the month up from Feb 22- Feb 28 we are featuring 15% off in-stock slippers from Garneau
The end of the month brings us to the end of the National Cupcake Campaign so we are having a 3 DAY CUPCAKE PARTY! Come into the store and buy a cupcake and all proceeds will go to the kingston Humane Society
Additionally, our featured artist, Lindy Martin, has generously donated a pet portrait photography session that we will be doing an in-store draw for (what a great way of creating a treasured memory of your fur baby!).
Just into Cornerstone is new work by one of our favourite artists, Marissa Sweet. We are so honoured to have Marissa's work at the store. She is an award winning artist, fabulous teacher and all around "Sweet" lady. I am a lucky girl because Marissa sometimes offers workshops from her home in Oshawa and I got in on time to do one of her "in demand" workshops on mixed media! (I'll let you know in the May newsletter how it all turns out!). I invite you all to come on down and check out these beautiful pieces and choose one for your own home!
Our "little shop on the corner", depends on our loyal customer's support all year round so that we can continue to offer Kingston and surrounding areas (and by that I mean the world as we have many friends from all over the globe who visit us whenever they come to Canada... how awesome is THAT?), the great Canadian hand - made pieces you've come to expect. We know it's hard to come out in the cold to see us but the warmth inside from our cheery staff, (and easy parking!) will more than make up for the effort! We love to see your faces on these cold, long days! Don't keep us a secret! Tell all your friends/family and remember to like and share our posts on instagram and FB and to follow us there and on Pinterest as well!
Yes, February is going to be FABULOUS! Love is in the air ... love of art, craft and pets!
From our heart you yours,
Penny & the wonderful staff at Cornerstone
