Update and The Witches of Giggleswick

Since I was here last, a lot has been going on in the studio.  Not the production of new whimsical, one of a kind art dolls, but a complete remodel!  I have emptied everything out of the room, painted walls and ceiling, built new shelving in the newly-opened closet, tore up old carpet and laid new vinyl plank flooring, added some new storage pieces, sorted EVERY SINGLE THING in the studio, purged what I will never use, organized what I will.  It's all gone fairly well, with one big hiccup.  I ordered a really cool desk online at Wayfair.  I was deeply disappointed when it arrived with a damaged top.  I contacted the manufacturer, per the instructions in the box, and basically never heard from them!  NOT HAPPY!  So I then contacted Wayfair to let them know I had a damaged part, and boy oh boy did they get RIGHT on it!  I had an immediate response and within hours I had a notice saying a new part had been ordered and would be shipped on January 30.  YAY!!  I do hope it arrives unscathed!  I'm so excited to reveal my new studio to you all, but I don't want to share anything until it's complete.  And since the new desktop won't arrive until next week, and I will be on a little trip to visit my friend when it arrives, it will be a couple more weeks before I can unveil! 

In the meantime, there is other news I need to share with you.  Remember the fun blog hop I participated in last fall?  The Witches of Giggleswick?  Well, LeeAnn and Carly with the help of another person, have set up a fun new website that stems from our blog hop.  It is a place where holiday artists and holiday art enthusiasts can meet and mingle and share.  There are forums to discuss all things related to art and to just chat.  There is a marketplace where you can purchase wonderful one of kind works of art.  There will be giveaways and lots of fun.  There are different levels of membership depending on how involved you want to be, but the basic level is free, of course!  It will allow you to get in on the forums and shop the marketplace.  If you love Halloween art, this is the place for you to go!

Currently in the marketplace I am offering my adorable little witch, Katrina.  There will be more to come.....once I get that studio up and running!
Have a great day, and try to stay warm!  (That's a real trick in my part of the world today!)

  1. Wow- just listening to all your reconstruction tasks has me winded!
    I am glad Wayfair did right by you so quickly.
    I will be watching for the unveiling.
    Stay warm. Here too we are breaking records for cold.
    Great day to stay in and read or craft.
