WHERE'S THE WOOD...UPDATE!!

If you've checked our Blog in the past few months you may have wondered...well, where's the wood?


The simple answer is, it's "still" coming!

Right as we announced we would be adding a wood parts section to our website, our favourite wholesale supplier here in Canada decided to move their warehouse to the USA and we thought we might not be able to get the supplies we use. Now, things have started to get back on track with them, but now we are now facing a new change - WE'RE MOVING TOO!!!

Yes, FAVOURITE THINGS GIFT STUDIO, and indeed our whole family is packing up and will be heading west to sunny KAMLOOPS, BC in the next month or so - gotta sell our house first though!! It will be a big change for us all but change is good and it will bring us closer to family and friends and provide more opportunities for the future - for both our family and our business!

So, the wood section and indeed the whole website somewhat on hold for a bit right now until we move and get settled in our new location - once we have a new location that is! I really hate this house selling stuff! LOL Keep checking back for updates!

Coming Attractions!!

What most people who are not familiar with our business don't know, is that Favourite Things Gift Studio has actually been in business since August 1995!! Yes, we are entering our 13th year of business already. Things have changed quite a bit since we started, but one thing that hasn't changed is people always ask us where we get our wood parts from.

I always intended to offer unpainted wood parts for sale along side our finished items, but I just never got around to it - it was always on the "TO DO" list. Well, we are working on adding a whole new section to our website filled with all kinds of wood parts. We have yet to see anyone who carries the selection that we are able to offer our customers.


Happy Crafting!

OUR NEW WEBSITE IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS!!

I'm happy to announce that our new website has finally gone live!! After so many months of saying "Coming Soon" it's really out there now and Favourite Things Gift Studio is open for business!

Creating a website takes a lot of time...and it really never ends once you get started either! From creating products to sell to taking pictures and writing copy, the work is ongoing. It's been exciting work, at times both frustrating and fun too, and although I'm sure there will be changes to make, I'm happy to have gotten this far!!

I still have lots of new items to get uploaded - I have a whole bunch of new Christmas items that I've already completed. I will also be adding craft supplies to the site, especially wood parts for the make-it-yourself crafters out there. I know here in Canada it's really difficult to find some of the unique wood parts I carry, so keep checking my website for new items and improvements.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cabin Fever...Anxiously Awaiting Spring!

As I write this the sun is shining gloriously and the sky is the most wonderful shade of azure blue. Spring is finally coming...although it's hard to believe when I look out the window at a yard still full of snow! Living in a valley between two mountain ranges usually means we are destined to have a fair amount of snow over the winter so it's not unexpected. By February the pile in the yard from shovelling is well over 5 feet high - and there is no where to go but up! It still amazes me every year that it will eventually all melt away and the green grass will be there...well, it won't be green just yet, but once the sun gets to it, it will get some life in it again!

It's certainly taking longer than I'd planned but our new site is almost ready to launch. Lots of unexpected things have worked against us to delay the launch but we're almost ready and hopefully you will find it worth the wait.

New Website Coming Soon!

Just thought I'd post a quick note to remind everyone to watch for my new improved website...COMING SOON!

I've been very busy working on the new site and adding lots of new products to it daily. Along with the new giftware items from our studio, I will be adding lots of wood parts for the do-it-yourself crafter. In addition, I'm thrilled to be offering some of the wonderful giftware lines from BLOSSOM BUCKET. I know you will just love their wonderfully whimsical designs featuring artists like Barbara Lloyd and Suzi Skoglund.

Please bookmark us and check back often!

Happy New Year!


Well, here we are in 2008! I really don't know where the time goes...just hang on tight and go with the flow I guess!

There are some exciting new changes coming to Favourite Things Gift Studio this year. I'm doing a total revamp of my website - a different layout which will allow more functionality regarding inventory control and a built in shopping cart with real time shipping rates. I'll also be adding lots of new products to help fill your special holiday gift giving needs all year round!

Be sure to visit my website often and see these exciting new changes going on at Favourite Things Gift Studio

Till next time...
