Getting down to business while NOT getting down to business.
To all of my customers, Studio Waterstone is officially out of production for the short term. Last year, I didn't give my arm sufficient time to heal and now I'm reaping the benefits. I have absolutely no choice this time - no cheating. If you have a gift certificate or are waiting for "just the right bag", rest assured, new things are coming. Hopefully I will be back in production in the spring/summer with beautiful new goodies. Until then...
It's a great time to get down to business. Contradicting what I just said? Not really. It's a great time for examining and fine-tuning my brand, streamlining my styles and offerings, designing and planning for spring - not a small undertaking, but I'm excited about it.
While remaining eco-friendly, I'm going to try to reinvent by adding an element of art - something unique. As stated before, Studio Waterstone will be more streamlined, simple, and organized while continuing to focus on earth friendly, stylish functionality.
Sounds like a good "jumping off point" to me. Care to add your desires and preferences to the list while I'm hot on the design trail? I'd love to hear your opinions.
On a personal level, I'm currently working on photography (staging and photographing products, too) and reading for fun. At the moment, I'm reading Water for Elephants.
Painting will be on the agenda as well as studio organizing - a major undertaking.
I've signed on for 52 Weeks to an Organized Home. Care to join me?
It's a new year with fresh beginnings and exciting possibilities. While I will be absent from Studio Waterstone production, I'll continue to be around here and here and here. See you around!
