Does anyone else feel like Summer is steaming by way too fast? Well, it has certainly been a busy few months around here! We started July with the community-wide Lemonade Crawl and the Ladies on the Loose retail event the end of July...Whew! Let's not forget all the Art & Craft Shows folks are enjoying, the Meyer Oak Grove Market in Sauk City on Saturday's and VACATIONS! Yay! Guess we'll keep the momentum going! Stop by ReTwist-T over Labor Day Weekend to help us celebrate our THIRD Anniversary with a Mini Market on the Lawn and specials in the Store - Including new fall decor! See you soon!
Meet the NEW ReTwist-T Makers!
Anne is a colored pencil artist and middle school art teacher who values nourishing creativity in children and bringing affordable, useful artwork to everyone! Her style is loosely based on the concepts of Neurographics, a science based, meditative, and fun artistic look. Her students call it “bubble art”, which is fine too! In addition to her original artwork, she creates archival quality hand embellished prints, as well as notebooks, stationery, and sticky notes. The goal of Art by Design is for everyone to feel included! Anne joins us from Poynette WI.
In her free time Sarah loves to create natural heating pads, pillows, baby blankets, swaddles, bibs, and tea towels! But, the fun doesn't stop there. Sarah, along with her husband and 3 helpful kids started a family business, Peaceful Valley Honeybee Hives! They care for their hives, process and extract their own honey, and make whipped body butter and tinted lip balm using the beeswax and honey--the end product is a natural blend of organic and fair trade ingredients. Sarah join us from Lodi WI.
What started as paintings of original pet portraits, cute little cats and adorable dogs, did not stay there long. Karen's journey to becoming Juno Originals progressed quickly as she began to dive into the world around her more and more. She became inspired by wildlife and the secrets held in nature. Today, Karen's artwork reflects both the love of pets and the appreciation of nature in a fun and colorful format! Karen joins us from Madison WI.
David enjoys biking, hiking and kayaking at Devils Lake during the warmer weather. A few years ago his wife realized he needed to find a pastime for the winter months so she encouraged him to explore the vast field of woodworking. In his new basement wood shop David sought to blend his love for the outdoors with his creative heart which led him to discover the natural repurpose-ability of urban wood. Urban Wood comes from trees harvested from urban settings, a plentiful, local and renewable resource with unique design characteristics. David is excited to share his beautiful and unique repurposed creations with you! David joins us from Sauk Prairie WI.
