Get to Know Us, Part I

Man, I tell ya...good and free help is so hard to find.
Charcoal is stretched out on the couch, on his back, snoring to beat the band.  Sometimes I think he is channeling my Daddy...heavy sigh...

We want to take some opportunities this year for you to get to know us.  We think once you know us, you will love us, and then you most certainly will want to buy our art!  =)

We want you to know how much we appreciate YOU.  
We couldn't do what we do without YOU.

We thought it would be fun to see how some of our shops got their name; afterall, it is important to KNOW who you are.

Please visit our shops, share our blogs, Follow us, Heart us...Oh Dear...this all sounds soooooo dangerous...let me tell you right now~~it IS DANGEROUS, because once you visit our shops, you will be hooked, and you will want to BUY BUY BUY, and we are so happy to help YOU.

Cynthia Chapman, co-leader
I got the nickname Cyn a few years before I opened my shop. I actually started my blog first. Then I thought this is my place on the internet. I also want a brick and mortor store one day and it would be great to call it Cynzplace. A place to sell all kinds of handmades.   

Jody Stacy
I was working as a Home Care provider working with the elderly and handicap. One of my clients came up with the last two words. And due to what I paint. I thought the word Adorable would be a nice fitting name to combine it all. 

Crystal Cord
I started out with Em's Prims and it was a mix of my kids first and middle names. When I went to strictly whimsy goodies Whimsy by Crystal just fit. :) 

Cindi Toth, Head Honcho
I did not want a business name that was specific to one style and it had to be warm and fuzzy.   LOL   

Judy Miller Duley
There is a holly reserve near us. It is a beautiful piece of forest filled with American holly. A great place to spend an afternoon.

Carol Corrigan
The first part is obvious, since my name is Carol. I've always loved living in the country and watching the changing seasons. My mom loved to decorate for the seasons so I started coming up with seasonal painting projects!

Thank You for stopping by and for seeing 
just a tad of what we have to offer.
We LOVE what we do.

Oh, and don't forget that we are having a sale 
on many items in our shops.
