With my shop being closed for the past 3 and half months, I've had some time to really think about the direction and focus I want to take with it. As with many things in life, One Hundred Wishes is evolving a bit, and I'm excited about the changes! I thought I should fill you in before the shop opens on Monday.
I have decided to eliminate some existing categories and add a couple of new ones. You will now find all of my handmade art and crafty goods under one heading: Original Art Creations. This will be an ever-changing assortment of unique items I have crafted with my 2 hands (which need a manicure at the moment). When they're gone, they're gone. I'll move on to something fresh and new, whatever I happen to be inspired to make at the moment. The handmade goods you have seen in the past (paper cakes, trinket cones, bon bon cups, journals) are no longer available. I've got some fancy decorated eggs in the works right now. They are sitting here in the studio, freshly painted and waiting for pretty embellishments. They are part of The Big Easter Event which will debut on February 12 with these handmade items among other wonderful Springtime goodies.
Another new & very exciting category is Decorative Treats. In this section, you will find seasonal and everyday decorative art from well-known and very talented artists. The selection of Decorative Treats will continue to grow and change with the seasons. The first batch of goodies will be available February 12, as I'm still waiting on a big shipment that should be here right around that time. A not-so-subtle hint: think Nicol.....and then Wendy in April.
I'm also putting big focus on seeking out and offering you more fabulous ribbons, new trims & twine, old papers, new Dresdens, vintage millinery flowers, more baubles, fun cupcake trinkets, new colors of German glass glitter and much more!
I hope you like what I have in store. I am so passionate about this shop and every detail that's involved. It is truly a labor of love. Very consuming and very rewarding at the same time. To all of my past and future customers, I thank you for sharing my passion and allowing me to turn one of my biggest wishes into a reality.
On a different note, be sure to stop back tomorrow for a celebration you won't want to miss!
