Bits and Bobs from WillOaks Studio


Such an exciting time of year. I remember how last year, this time, as I was just barely beginning my shop on Etsy (and was basically clueless about how anything worked) I was selling well, but didn't quite know what I was doing.

This year, I have a better idea of what's what--sales are really picking up now as the holidays approach--and my time is pretty tight as I work to keep up, keep shipping, keep making--it's truly thrilling and I just love my work!

I chill periodically by enjoying all my cats and Dakota. Purrmeister really stirs things up around here and he's at least finding "accomodation" with Red Kitty. What a barrel of laughs!

I'll try to keep posting and dropping some, but there are only so many hours in a day, so please forgive me if I lapse on returning your drop or comments....I'll get back in balance soon enough because the next 2 to 3 weeks will surely fly right by!


Meanwhile, the drawing for my gift certificate held by Cafe Handmade has been posted--do drop by if you're interested as you have until Sunday to enter this drawing. And the one for I Heart Handmade, where my merchandise certificate is included in package #3, is still ongoing for a while longer!

I'm glad you're busy like this. The good kind of busy. I hope it continues for quite a while.

Who would blame you for putting sales over dropping and commenting. Just enjoy what spare time you have and get those sales :)

Beautiful photos! The kitties are adorable. Have fun in all the chaos. Hope this is an especially good year for you!

That cat is absolutely gorgeous and looks quite comfy too. Excited to get my order! I certainly forgive you for your business...I know I've not been updating and that's not because I'm busy....just feeling like being lazy:)

I think there has to be a "comment" mulligan for all of us in the next few weeks. Such a busy time of year. LOVE your new kitty.
