Signs of Spring

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

Days of rain and gray and clouds….even snuggled in my studio it makes me a bit sleepy. Just ventured outside to see these sweet Daffodils in my neighbors garden…signs of hope that spring will come!

Thought I would suggest a few signs of spring to have right in your “nests” to brighten things up…a few touches of yellow here and there can do wonders in defeating the winter doldrums.

And a bit of French Lemon to top things off!

Fabulous Display Ideas

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

Ok…in case you just tuned in, we are on an Amy Duncan,, roll around here….too many fabulous ideas not to share.

I am always on the search for innovative display suggestions for our products for our stores. Amy Duncan’s book, The Salvage Studio, is a treasure trove of creative solutions for organization and display.

My first favorite idea was perfect for flour sack towels: the Wooden Crib Rack

Perfect for towels, papers, scarves.....

Amy gives you everything you need for both these projects, in perfect detail, in the book The Salvage Art Studio.

Next fabulous idea: the Tool Caddy Towel Rack

Ideal for towels on bottom and your favorite treasures on top

These are affordable, creative, out-of-the-ordinary ideas to make your displays inviting and unique.


Discovering Passion…a Goddess infusion!

Monday, September 17th, 2012

There is no greater gift to give yourself…and your creative spirit…than to infuse your work with the talent and inspiration from other artists.

Let’s face it, owning a business is not for the faint of heart. Much as I love..repeat LOVE…working away in my studio, I do find that there are days when life can feel a bit solitary….most of my conversation is with myself… or my dogs. So when the time came to hatch the new designs and do some much needed photography for the line, I called Tiffany Kirchner Dixon…a photographer I have admired for some time.

Of course, I couldn’t get Tiffany right away…not only is she much in demand, but she had some Rodeo Ridin’ to do this summer, so I had to wait. Yes, she was riding in the rodeo!!!! (Oh if I had a nickel for every time I heard that excuse!) We set a date and Tiffany gave me the address of Farm & Frills in Buckley, WA, our location for the shoot.

All I can say, is that I showed up to this amazing shop, a converted gas station, with Tiffany’s aqua blue vintage truck parked outside and had one of the best times of my life. I handed over my goods to Tiffany and Kris ( owner of Farm & Frills) and they worked all day creating some of the most beautiful still lifes I could ever imagine for Full Circle Studio. These gifted, talented, creative Goddess/artists just poured their talent and taste right into my products and captured the spirit of what I want FCS to feel like for my customers. The photography is featured in our new catalogue and throughout the website.

Endless thanks for a creative infusion that is still bubbling!
