on pause

new crafts in the shop are on a little hiatus since i had to dismantle things in the studio for the installation of our new windows, and even more so next week when we get new floors. and again once it's finished with a snazzy new coat of paint (in a yet-to-be-determined color. ideas?!).

so i instead turned my maker's energy into homemade strawberry-rhubarb and apricot-blackberry galettes, on what turned out to be a 100-degree day. oy!

more pics to come as the studio re-do continues ...

mission accomplished!

the "simple spring wreath" custom (re)creation is on its way to its new home! the 32x30x6-inch box i made to ship it was a hot mess - lots of tape and cardboard, but the brown kraft paper wrapping should fool any peekers ;)

i {heart} custom orders

i love custom orders - they are fun little challenges!

a customer has asked for a recreation of the simple spring wreath on a 30-inch grapevine wreath. i have never made a wreath quite this big, and have never ever shipped a wreath this large, either. let's collectively cross our fingers and hope for the best! i'll update you when it's successfully accomplished :)
