Summer is here, Where did Spring Go

Yes I ask you when did Spring happen. We wait and wait for Winter to leave us and then before we know it Summer time is here and slipping away oh so fast. One grandchild is starting school today and the others next week. Tourists and locals alike are still flocking to our local Farmers Market in Harrisonburg for fresh veggies, fruit and our freshly designed and single artist created functional WoodArt. Yes we have been busy.

And that could just be one of the reasons that you have not seen many blogs along the way. Running to markets, running to galleries keeps us young and healthy. Now some of you may be wondering why we have so many pictures in our Studio Gallery that have been sold. That is easy. While all of our pieces are unique unto themselves there are times when you may see a piece and say I love it, I want it, can you create something similar for me. Often times the answer can be yes and so we want you to be able to see as many of the work that comes out of the studio as possible. Yes it can take a while to scroll and see it all but plain and simply put it is worth it. And so on that note enjoy the scroll. If you desire to see more of us on a daily basis please follow along with us on our facebook page, The WoodArt Studio.

Until next we meet choose the right branch....

Spring Has Arrived

I did have all intentions of writing first on a weekly basis and then down to a monthly basis when we first started to blog. Honestly. Now as you can see by the date of the last post that this has just become a wild dream on our part, for various reasons. I find that like the weather you can never really count on things to be the way that they were meant to be. Sometimes it does snow in the Spring and other times we are just filled with beautiful tulips, daffodils and other assorted plant life.

Well the same is true for us here at The WoodArt Studio. The winter often can slow us down a bit, especially after the holidays. Its just too plain cold to create in the studio because it takes to long for the wood-stove to heat up the area. We find that overcast, cloudy, snowy weather is just not conducive for creating happy functional wood pieces.

But here we are in the middle of Spring and life is full of growth.The birds are singing and life in the studio is buzzing like the bees. Chips are flying. New items are being added. The cooking utensil and jewelry line has expanded. We have added a limited supply of hair clips and created another in our spirit house Red Barn series.
For the most part we post onto our facebook page daily or weekly so it is the best way to keep up with us. You can still find us at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market in Harrisonburg, VA in C'Ville Arts in Charlottesville, VA, and Lost River Artisan Cooperative in Lost River, WV. We are hoping to expand our market presence and will be doing from time to time the Lost River Farmers Market in Lost River, WV also so watch for news on that.

And to close for now we look forward to meeting many new WoodArt Studio followers again this year so remember to stop by and say hello so that we can thank you personally for supporting The WoodArt Studio.

For now choose the right branch...
