Everything Must Go!

It's True!! Two Brunettes SHOP ONLY is closing for ready-made items, and on a happy note. Two Brunettes Studio is staying open! This venture with my business has been a roller coaster of trial and error, and right now the best move for the business is to go custom only for a while. It is definitely bittersweet.  Between all the custom orders, the shop, and my new baby girl, I can't keep up with maintaining the shop it's becoming very neglected. I've come to terms with it and will hopefully be able to open back up somewhere down the road. A huge chunk of the business is custom illustrations, blogs, and invitations, and that is where I am most happy right now pouring my focus into! I have some new licensing gigs coming up also, so all and all I am happy with this decision. Thank you to everyone who has supported the shop the last couple of years. Two Brunettes overall is relaunching with a new website in May so stay tuned. The shop will not close until everything is gone a 50% off discount is already marked, so get shoppin!

Spring has Sprung in the Fall!

Two Brunettes just finished another blog design and boy was it fun! Spring has sprung so to speak, for 4 talented women! Carolyn Rubenstein author of Perseverance, Jess Constable jewelry designer of Jess LC, Jess Gonacha Swift artist and blogger, and Michelle Ward creative career coach are collaborating on a new blog Spring. What are these four talented women doing together do you ask? Well, something so fun, they will be creating video episodes all centered around the topic of inspiration. I can't wait to see it all!
