Welcome, 2014! We had a lovely Christmas and a productive working holiday. Thanks so much to all of you for your patience. Things still look pretty much the same around here save for a few new photographs and a teaser for the re-introduction of our shop apron.
What did we get done, you ask?
We are working with a real live web developer AND a real live graphic designer on a whole new website. All good things take time, so they say. We’re shooting for an early spring launch. We will be offering a few more products and a web store that will be much more intuitive and easier to navigate with pretty drawings and photos.
In other news we (read: my Dad) are building a new studio! A mobile 10′ X 22′ building with lots of built-in storage and plenty of light. Here’s a sneak peek:
We acquired an old (and leaky) travel trailer in late December. My Dad swiftly went to work disassembling the entire trailer screw by screw to get to the real diamond in the rough.
A sturdy steel trailer frame. Made in Indiana I might add. So far he’s placed it on piers and framed the floor joists. He’ll be reusing some old corrugated metal with a lovely patina for the siding that he salvaged from my uncle’s barn. I have big plans for a cutting table on casters and a dedicated shipping station. Lots of daydreaming going on.
I feel like I’m getting a complete overhaul and I’m so thankful for everyone involved. It looks like our new digs (both virtually and physically) will be ready this spring.
Here’s to a great start to the new year and a happy (and rainy) January.
