New Retail Pop-Up!

February 11, 2018
One... it's been 3 years since we've blogged.  Apparently, we've been VERY remiss about keeping the content on this part of our site up to date.  Our apologies. Needless to say, things have changed since April 2015. 

We are still excited to be partnered with my husband's family print shop - having a guy on the inside comes in handy.  He will custom cut a number of the stencils and supplies vinyl for my in-house designs.   Each custom design is custom cut for you!  Our time goes into the actual...

Scrap Wood Minis

April 13, 2015
I don't have an official studio per se, but utilize space where there's warmth and light.  I make use of our furnace room where my mitre saw and a workbench is set up.  It's cold and dark throughout the winter.  We have a three-season room off our deck where our dead hot tub lives.  I have a work table set up in there among our various items that need storage.  (I love our home, but closet and storage space is a serious issue - no garage either so we improvise.)  The lighting in this room is ...

Handmade Baby Gifting

January 22, 2015
My cousin had a baby back in November.  A sweet little girl - a first for them.  My family is just now getting around to hosting a shower (we sure know how to procrastinate!) - despite the fact that we've had numerous family events since then and have all met said baby. Oh well...

Back in the fall, I was thinking of my whole buy local, buy handmade philosophy.  A great idea, but not always practical... baby gifts though?  Oh, they are just perfect opportunities to find some handmade happiness ...

#TBT - Brave, Stront, Smart

January 22, 2015
Throwback Thursday AKA the hash-tag phenomenon, #TBT, seeming has no end in sight  I will occasionally jump on board via my personal Facebook or Instagram accounts.  On even rarer occasions, I will throw up a TBT photo on our Wisdom & Whimsy Facebook page.  This is a first for sharing on our blog. 

The photo I'm sharing today is a sign created way back when (2011?) featuring one of my favourite quotes.  There are so many people I know who seem to have been hit with all kinds of nastiness and I...

New holiday signs... and an invitation!

November 11, 2014
It might not be Christmas yet, but in the crafting world, we tend to work on our holiday stock all year long.  Or if you're like me, you wait until the last minute and start cramming it in days before our major events.  We work well under pressure. 

Here are some of the most recent creations - some are still available for purchase (see the invitation below.)  Others have already found their forever home.  





The last picture is my little guy showing off his own crafting skills.  He made these Nat...

Well, Hello Again!

September 30, 2014
Spring and summer have come and gone.  We've been remiss at keeping our blog updated.  Now that we're into fall, we're thinking vendor show products... and of course, vendor shows themselves.  Don't forget to check out our local events page to find out when and where we'll be stepping outside of cyberspace and touting our goods in the real world.  We're making plans for the Mistletoe Market in Port Perry again, we've booked ourselves for the Christmas Bazaar at Timothy Christian School in Bar...

On Facebook? Let's Be Friends.

March 7, 2014
As many of you know, Wisdom & Whimsy is a side project we juggle with a few other jobs.  As such, our website content isn't always fresh.  Facebook, however, is so user friendly that it's usually a cinch to add new photos or update our status. All that being said, have you visited our Facebook page recently?  We really want to be friends.  

A few days ago, we added a photo of these Distressed Photo Memory Blocks we made for a friend.  They're now available for custom order.

  

We have to admit t...

Winding down another year...

December 16, 2013
It has been a busy & successful Holiday season.  We have participated in more vendor events this year, were featured in an article in the small publication "Christmas in Scugog", and will be finishing up our last Christmas custom order tomorrow afternoon.   This elf is closing up the workshop early... please note that while we might pop in to update our Facebook status, check our email, or update our blog, we are officially "on vacation" until early January.  Please keep in mind that we may n...
