Happy National Library Week / Library Workers Day!

WE LOVE OUR LIBARIES!

(Isn’t this the COOLest graphic?!)

When I saw this amazingly cool animated graphic to celebrate this week, I wanted to make something to celebrate the national treasures that are our public libraries. I had a few raw brass lighthouse stampings, so I made a couple of bookmarks to let them “shine.” (Click below the picture for a link to the listing.)

And, there’s Hoopla! :0)

I sure miss the open doors at my local branch, which I see every day when I go to my studio. But I’m glad folks are staying safe.

SO grateful for all the folks who work and volunteer in libraries across the country. We miss seeing you in person right now, but please know you are appreciated! I have the fondest memories of riding my bike through a couple of neighborhoods and around a lake to our town’s library in Maitland, Florida, many moons ago. (Sometimes I still visit it when in town!)

Do you have a particular library you’re grateful for?

**STUDIO HOURS UPDATE**

**OPEN STUDIO HOURS UPDATE**
(March 17, 2020) — Out of an abundance of caution, my physical shop/studio will be open by special appointment only for the time being. I’m married to a health care professional and don’t want to jeopardize care for his patients, or your health, or mine! We’re all in this together. My Etsy shop is open 24/7, and I’m always happy to mail items anywhere. Thank you!! –Robyn

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

And THANK YOU, Dear Friends of artsyletters!

Open Studio Hours for March 2020

**Thursday, MARCH 5 UPDATE** – And I thought yesterday’s weather was challenging! Storms are on tap all day today, so I will need to dart back and forth to tend to a nervous wee beastie doggie. I’d like to keep my sidewalk sign in one piece, so I’m just going to use today to get ready for First Friday. See you tomorrow eve!!

Open 12 noon to  4:30 p.m. most Wednesday through Fridays, but please note exceptions for the first half of this month!  On First Friday, the 6th, we’ll be open 
5-8 p.m. with a fun drawing every half hour beginning at 5:30.  
(I will be out of town the second week for a writers/illustrators conference.)  
Happy Spring!!!
(My Etsy shop is open 24/7!)

Friday Studio Update – Brrrr.

Good Morning! I LOVE working in a historic building, but I need to upgrade the heating options in my small space. Looks like wind chills will stay in the 30s today, so even if my sandwich board sign on the sidewalk were to stay up, it’s going to be awfully chilly all day. I’ll be darting in and out but not keeping regular hours. Please email or text or call if you need me – Thanks!!

NOTE for next week – For Feb. 26, my shop will be open as usual on Wednesday, 12 noon to 4:30 p.m, but I will be traveling on Thursday and Friday for an author/poet school visit.
