Thank you so much! We had a wonderful year with modern goldfish. We’ve met so many new friends and connected with more artists, crafters, geeks, and nerds than you can shake a wand at. We got our online mojo up and moving. We still have miles to go before our mojo is flowing smoothly and the way we want it. We started a newsletter and met people who bought our wands last year and are still loving them one and two years later (this is the most amazing feeling!)
We’ve learned so much and have so much more to learn and look forward to. We are looking ahead to more conventions and having our wands in more brick and mortar shops as well as online.
We have also had an idea… to help other people get out of their studios and get their art into the world. One of the things you’ll hear Bryan and I say is that we rise by lifting others. We want to respond to the numerous questions we’ve received about how we got started, how others can get started, and just what is the first thing someone should do to get into craft fairs and conventions… there’s a ton of resources online, and yes, my friends, we are hoping to become one more. It’s like we get to sit and share a cup of coffee or a nice meal, or a few beers with you and let you pick our brains. Please note that we still love to meet with people in person to talk about these things, so please invite us out! This idea is taking some sort of shape at craftertastic.com. We are only sure of one thing – that this will evolve. We aren’t sure what it will look like in a month or a year, but it’s an idea we think is worth exploring.
If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for us, we’d love to hear from you!
