It is now official.

What a month. But after some unrelated conflicts I finally stopped by my town office in Brandon Vermont and applied for my permit to have my studio open. Paid my fee and now my studio is officially a business in Vermont.

I feel like I put the cart before the horse. You see there was someone who harassed me. Threatened me and my business and since I knew I needed to stop by Brandon’s Town Office it pushed me to go.

I always try to find positive energy in turmoil and if this individual was not inserted into my life I would not have gone yet. Also in doing so I met some wonderful people working in the town and got a chance to network in my town.

So thank you for the conflict universe. I am so grateful. A friend keeps focusing on the conflict that started this and my thought is stop, let it go. Don’t take my joy. I feel elated and joyful, positive in the recent choices I made. Mostly I am thrilled delighted and content.. Making the move back to Vermont is very right for me.

As a thank you if you order $200 or more I will send you with your order a bit of Vermont, an antique roof slate with an authentic maple leaf.  The leaves amazing red, orange and salmon variations.

The sales from my Etsy shop are few and spending more time and energy does not make sense. Etsy has changed. They are not that magical place where people could find quality handmade custom work. It is filled with prints knock offs from China and substandard products. There is still the most wonderful original work found but most serious artists have moved on with their own web sites.

Prints, Art, Canvas Floor Cloths, Murals,

Since I work with FineArtAmerica and Society6 where you can buy any size print, on anything wood, paper, canvas, acrylic or metal, frame it, or buy from the large selection of home decor and accessories with a hassle free return policy at an amazing price why Etsy? Etsy charges for everything and I had to add the additional charges to the final price I charged at Etsy. This really bothered me. I felt like I was cheating my customer, though I was upfront with my policy at Etsy. Etsy customer (I have a record of you) get 10% off on select products.

I have gone back and forth with this for a year. I gave Etsy till the end of the year to prove their value. Sadly the stats proved me right. Etsy has changed. My web sites get an average of 1500 hits a day where Etsy could not break the 50 mark. At one time I had an average of 500 to 700 a day at Etsy. Etsy has stopped listing with Google. Their home page is confusing. Most of the products cater to one demographic, not mine. My clientele tends to be older, affluent and searching for custom one of a kind art and work.

I hope my clients at Etsy read this and understand. Please come and join me at Laurie Rohner Studio or Between The Weeds Marketplace for my original art and furniture and visit Whitefield Studio the gateway to my prints and printed decor.

Newly added cahier small journals are the best.

I know everybody has seen these journals around. Wondered what to do with them? Not artistic but want something on the cover?

I am drawn to small books, basically always have been, so when I saw these Cahier journals by Moleskin, I had to buy. I love them. I tuck them in the pocket, purse, leave it on the desk and by the bed just to jot down the next idea that springs into my head. I didn’t want to say just for the women but guys these are for you too.

We are born to shimmer.

We are born to shimmer, we are born to shine, we are born to radiate, we are born to live, we are born to love, never hate.

I do not know where this quote comes from and wish I did. The words resonated deep within and it is my new mantra. Maybe it is yours now too.
