May 2019 Open Studio Hours

THIS WEEK’S HOURS (May 20-25) – ***UPDATE** Actually, Update to the Update – Thursday, May 23 – I have an under-the-weather wee doggie and need to keep tabs on her. Hope to (finally!) open tomorrow. Apologies for any inconvenience, and thanks!

Wednesday, May 22 – the shop will be closed as I need to have my windshield replaced after Tuesday’s trip back from a conference… ;0) Big trucks, stray rocks. We’ll be open Thursday and Friday from 12 noon to 4:30. :0)

FRIDAY 4/12 UPDATE – Well, there’s still an obstacle course and the doors have yet to be painted – Guess I should just call it a week and we’ll try again next week! Contact me if you need anything in the meantime. Thanks!  [My Etsy Shop is open 24/7 – :0)]

THURSDAY 4/11 UPDATE – We still have painting and obstacle-course-ing happening in the halls; will see about re-opening Friday. :0)

(Heads up for April 10 – the interior of our building is being painted and it’s a challenge to get around at the moment! I’ll keep things simple & safe & be closed Wednesday. If it’s all clear on Thursday afternoon, I’ll open back up. :0). )

Here’s to an Art-Filled 2019!

Happy New Year!

Bundles of thanks to so many wonderful artsyletters patrons for making 2018 the best year ever. Join me for creative adventuring in 2019!

For the month of January, my Etsy shop will be open 24/7, but my shop hours in downtown Beaufort will be limited to appointments only. (You should see the organizing I need to do! ;0) ) I have regular freelance writing and art deadlines this month, as well as travel plans to see family and friends, so my actual studio will be doing a wee bit of hibernating.

In February, I’ll be open for First Friday and across all channels in time for Valentine’s gifting! Hmmm…. now what would your Literary Loves love the most? I’m restocking and creating new, fun items for you to choose from!

Wishing you and yours a new year full of blessings and wonder. XO

December Doings….


I’m tucked away making custom orders here at the start of December.  But if you’re a Beaufort area local, be sure to come on up to visit us for

NIGHT ON THE TOWN 

this Friday, Dec. 7, from 5 to 8 p.m.!

(Special Guest Kim Poovey will be signing copies of DICKENS’ MICE, the cover of which was illustrated by yours truly.)

I’ll also be open a couple of days next week, or get in touch to set up a time to pop in the studio.  My Etsy shop is open 24/7 – :0)  Keep in mind the last artsyletters sleigh will depart on Dec. 19 – please get orders in before that date.  Thank you!

artsyletters lands at The Beaufort Emporium!


JULY GREETINGS, Continued…

While I will actually be closed this week (July 19-20) because our kids are visiting, I’m delighted to share that you can now find some artsyletters offerings at the BEAUTIFUL Beaufort Emporium & Dry Goods Company on Bay Street!

Check out my table on the left after you walk in, and be sure to peruse the variety of gifts, souvenirs, and special treasures all around.  Friendly folks and classy gifts!

I’m honored to have some items there, including some new local-themed goodies such as upcycled and handmade journals, magnets, key rings and bookmarks featuring hand-aged images from antique South Carolina maps. (Listing similar items in my Etsy shop in coming days!)

Enjoy Water Festival Week, whether you’re here in town or just here in spirit!
