Summer Schedule

Now that summer 2018 is in full swing, we are on the move. Wednesdays you can find us at the Gravenhurst Farmers Market from 9am-2pm. Fridays you can find us at the Rosseau Farmers Market from 9am-2pm, and Saturdays we can be found at the Bracebridge Farmers Market from 8:30am-1pm. The other weekdays we are in the studio creating and sending custom orders and replacing stock that has sold out. We are excited to see the many returning customers and happy to meet all the new customers who visit our booth. For the dog lovers out there, we will be participating in Muskoka DogFest on July 21st at Morrison Meadows on Fraserburg road in Bracebridge. Not only will we have all our wonderful greeting cards, we will also have dog themed decorative pillow covers sure to put a smile on your face! We hope you will come visit us while we are there.

I'm baaaaack

Hello everyone and welcome to 2018!  My husband and I just returned from a month long break from the studio and we are ready and excited to get back to work.  While we were off we visited Europe, I absolutely love all the history.  Our youngest son was able to join us there over the Christmas break and our eldest son will join us on a holiday next year.

I will admit that even though we took a break, I was sketching new designs for cards in a notebook I brought along just for that reason.  The goal is to have about 100-150 NEW designs for the market season.

Other than a custom card order, my first project is a wedding album for a very special couple.  I actually did an album (ordered by the groom) that was used to ask his lovely girlfriend to be his wife.  I was so touched when I got the order.  Thankfully they were happy with the album and have ordered another to commemorate their wedding day.  The photo's are lovely and after about 40 hours of selecting, cropping, and editing I am just about ready to start the layout.  The process usually takes about 80 hours once the photo's are printed.  I will ask the couples permission to share bits and pieces AFTER they have received the album.
