    The Mythical Point System

    If I were hyper-systematic (a funny thought, right?), I might dream up a points system to help us prioritize our shipping schedule. Each time we received an order I could assign it a value, so we’d know what needed to ship when. It could go something like this: Need-now’s – 1 point (we completely understand) Kindness – 2 points (and

    The Domino Trade

    Recently, our creativity has been on vacation. It could tell we didn’t really need it just now, so it said, “Fine by me! I’m going to the beach. Call me when you finish your…bookkeeping! Ha!” (I think it was a little disgruntled, since it’s usually so indispensable.) But while did feel a little strange to have our creativity gone, it

    Bobby Pin Sculpture

    I’ve come to realize how much you bring to the table (hint: a lot). I know I’ve said it many times before, but we love making your ideas come to life. This was definitely true with a recent custom project. It started when we received general email inquiry from our website. A woman whose daughter had played Matilda in the

    Our Maker Lab

    Yesterday our son had a chance to go to a maker lab at a nearby school. He loved it! So what is a maker lab? From what I gather, it’s exactly as it sounds – a place to make stuff. Think hot glue guns and popsicle sticks…plus they had a 3D printer (fun!). It recently occurred to me that what

    Out and About

    I know almost nothing about the theater business, but I believe we’ve had what those in the know might call a “set change.” While our work has always traveled great distances, we’ve stayed mostly tucked into the same set – our little hillside – until recent years. Uh oh! The Gatskis are loose!   As our children have gotten older,

    Honestly

    I wasn’t totally honest with you. Last month I made our pre-show routine sound like a carnival; a rumba down the lane! Well, it kinda is – but it’s also kinda not.

    Cha Cha Cha!

    I just realized this year that we follow the same routine each January and February as we create new work and get ready for an annual wholesale show. Sometimes routines can make me feel predictable and dull – so to balance it all out, we’re going to add a little cha cha cha! So I now present to you a
