Spring & New Beginnings


Spring and this past holiday weekend have us thinking about new beginnings. Even though the weather has been less than cooperative here in Maryland, you can still feel that spring is upon us. Tiny buds on trees bring hope that in just a couple of weeks we will be surrounded by color. It is a wonderful metaphor for how I am feeling. 

In 10 days our studio in Annapolis is closing.  But, like the Spring, we know that we are about to be surrounded by all things new and full of color. Yesterday, Local By Design opened their 3rd location at Westfield Annapolis Mall. Over 60 local artisans, including myself, will have their work available in one place. It looks incredible and we couldn’t be happier for Suzi and Susan.


April 12 we say goodbye to our home for the last 3 years at 1818 Margaret Avenue. It's bittersweet, but we plan to go out with a bang! 


April 13 through the 29th- brings us Annapachella via HERE. A Pop Up Shop.,  located at 232 Main Street in Downtown Annapolis. Shop our finished pieces, our "Home" Cricket In A Box for four and our EXCLUSIVE for HERE Cricket In A Box for one. This fun stencil is totally in tune with Amy & El’s ode to Coachella theme.


Over the next few weeks you will also notice the evolution of our website. You will find more options for Cricket in a Box and more choices to make each project your own. Since we know sometimes your besties have really different taste than you do, we will have multiple stencil options available to create your own Cricket in a Box, the all inclusive craft party in a box. And wait until you see what is in store for Cricket in a Box jr and Cricket in a Box Wedding. Spring has definitely sprung!

As always, we'd love to connect with you on FacebookInstagramPinterest and YouTube.  Stop by even if you just want to say "hi!" -  we would love to hear from you!
