Some progress is better than no progress....

That is to say, that today, I finally was able to snag some free-time and take care of the business side of The Pixie Knoll.  Of course, that meant, all work and no play for the pixies in question!  In other words, I spent nearly my entire day updating and loading up items into my Etsy store!  I'm still not completed with listing all my items; I have the Santa ornaments and a few more dolls to go, but, suffice to say that there are plenty of items to gander at in the store now, enough to keep one entertained for a little while anyway.  :-)   Here is a link to the Etsy store  https://www.etsy.com/shop/Pixieknoll?ref=si_shop 

Speaking of progress, I'm getting closer to having nearly everything in its place in my new home and the studio is nearly in a workable condition with the exception of a big pile of debris in the middle of the floor that I still need to take care of.   Not to mention the few more boxes to unload of "stuff" that contributes to the mess in the studio.  And, of course, after you dump everything out of said boxes, you have yet another pile of debris that needs to find a temporary home.  I say temporary because as you all know, when it comes to sorting things out, you will probably change your mind on the destination of said item a few times until you find the right workable spot for each item! 

At any rate, I'm seriously craving some artistic work time and if I don't fill this need soon, I feel like I'm gonna burst at the seams!  Aside from the few commissions I need to complete, I still have laying on my work bench all those life-less paper clay dolls that keep screaming for some color and personality to bring them to life!  Suffice to say, I will be EXTREMELY busy over the next few weeks trying to get caught up on everything.  No rest for the wicked I suppose.  :-D 

On a side note, for you local folks in my area, I will once again be displaying my art dolls in an Artist's Garden Party on Black Friday.  I am still not sure if it is for the entire weekend, but it is definitely taking place for the Black Friday.  Once I know if it is for the entire weekend, I'll be sure to post an update for all to see.  But, I will say this, the early bird catches the worm!  So keep that in mind.  The location, date, time of the Artist Garden Party is:

November 29, 20139 a.m. til about 4 p.m.   
32850 Lakeshore Dr. Tavares, FL (On Lake Dora) 
So, if you are in the area, and still looking for something artistically unique for that special someone, please stop by and take a look.  Perhaps you might find the perfect gift!

Anyway, I think it is time to go and rest these weary bones for the evening.  Perhaps I'll have some pictures to show you VERY soon! 

As always, thanks for following me here at The Pixie Knoll!

Quick Update....

This is only a brief update to let all of you good people know that I am still in the middle of the "moving" process.  So bare with me while I finish settling into my new humble abode.  :-)

In the course of the move, my computer decided to crash on me about a week ago and I have been unable to make any updates to my website, Etsy store or my blog until now.  Unfortunately, that did not allow me to give you any exciting news, but, hopefully soon, we'll be back on track again.

The Mount Dora Craft Festival has now come and gone and I am pleased to say that I met many interesting people and made some new friends!  There were many people interested in pieces that I had displayed on the table; some of you I know are waiting on me to load them up into my Etsy store.  I have not forgotten about you nor my promises to load up the store with goodies.  Again, bare with me and very soon you will have many things to pick and chose from.  :-)   Thanks to all of you who stopped by my table at the festival event and for those of you who made purchases.  Without your kind hearts taking an interest in my work, I would not be able to continue to do what I love to do most of all...create.  Besides that, it is always good to meet new faces and make new friends, as well as see all of my old friends too!  Thank you all for making my day special at the event! 

At any rate, speaking of goodies....I have not forgotten about all the new pieces I am "supposed" to be working on.  I still have a ton of those cute little paper clay dolls laying about that I need to work on.....as well as a few special "Christmas" related commissions to finish up too.  As soon as I'm a bit more settled in and have some workable space in the new studio (and can find my paper, fabrics, trims and doo-dads), you will see quite a few projects being completed at what will probably seem like all at once!  So here's your warning now...get prepared to hold on to your britches because we are gonna hit the floor running VERY soon!  I am sure there will be something for everyone once I'm caught up.  :-D 

Anyway, I just wanted to pop in here and thank all of you for your patience during my relocation.  I realize it probably seems like it is taking forever, and believe me when I say I have to agree with you there.  But, very soon, things will be back to normal, and 100% better.  :-)  So hold on to those horses just a wee bit longer and soon we'll all be back in the races once again!

As always, thanks for following along with me here at The Pixie Knoll!
