Etspiration Wednesday: Or not?!

I would be putting up an Etspiration post today, but they are experiencing some crazy downtime, so looks like that ship has sailed for today.

So I'd like to talk to you a little briefly about Maisondestencils, where we're at in terms of our business and where we're going in the future.  It seems like a good time, right?

Hi, we're Maisondestencils.  We're a 2 woman show, and we make stencils.  We can make anything you want, within reason.  We love custom work and we love your ideas.  Some of our best concepts have actually come from our customers.  Awesome, right?

We're always looking for the next big trend in home decor.  You might say we're on the 'cutting edge' of stencil design.  Wocka wocka!  That being said, we have our feet firmly planted in the long, wonderful tradition of antique art and typography.

We are so inspired by what our customers come up with, we love sharing with you.  And we're getting more and more busy and successful everyday.  You may have noticed in the past month or so that our ship times have been a wee bit more lengthy.  We are trying our best to streamline some aspects of our production so things move quicker.  So we can grow to provide stencils to more people but still embody the cut-to-order service that we have at present.  Every time you purchase a stencil from us, it was cut for you.

We don't have a warehouse.  Your stencils are not moved on a forklift.  They are made in the USA by two people with a combined:  tween, toddler, and 3 crazy cats.

We love what we do and we want to thank you for making it possible.  We're talking to you, crafters whose ideas never stop, who can repurpose anything!  And we're talking to you, intrepid store owners who said to themselves, "I can do this.  I can open my own shop.  And I want to retail stencils!"  We couldn't do this without you guys.

While I was waiting for Etsy to resolve things today, I baked some banana nut bread.  If I could, I'd invite you all over for a coffee and baked yumminess.  It's delish.

Have a fabulous Wednesday and we'll be back with an Etspiration tomorrow.  <3
