What's In Store?
Throughout the month of November we are inspired by giving back to the community and thankfulness for our friends and family! Here are a few ways you can join with your ReTwist-T Teammates in making our world a better place:
Megan of Love Your Mother Clothing Co. has designed beautiful Wisconsin-Flag Hoodies to celebrate Veteran's Day! During the month of November 10% of sales will go towards the VA Vet National Center for PTSD.
Linda of ScrapCat creates fun greeting cards and art journals. 100% of her proceeds goes to support the local non-profit organization Kitties on the Prairie Cat Rescue!
Kris of Hoppin' Creations invites you to join the movement to warm our world! A portion of the proceeds from sales of her lovely handmade scarves are donated to a local homeless shelter in honor of the striving individual whose name is included with each scarf.

New to the ReTwist-T Team
Introducing Stacey, a busy lady who works as a high school counselor, is married to a combat-disabled medically-retired Recon Marine, a recent grad school grad, a cancer survivor, and a mama of two! A few months ago she realized that tapping into her creative side is her favorite form of self care and she has renewed her desire to bring her happiness to others!
Denise is a sign artist who carries on the inspirational creativity she learned from her mother. Her passion is creating works that incorporate upcycled materials. She especially enjoys going scraping for unique pieces of architectural tin and barn board!
Emily is a scientist by day and works in a self-proclaimed "candle lab" by night. Her brand centers around creating products that bring a little extra whimsy to someone's day! In her spare time she fosters dogs (just adopted out her 6th one), and explores our beautiful state on hikes with her husband.
Laura is a recent retiree who is enjoying finding time to seriously enjoy her hobbies! She has always been interested in nature snap shots. In 2018 she bought her dream car (a VW Bug convertible). Now the two passions have merged! She takes off in the bug with her camera close by, capturing nature along the way. Laura invites you to enjoy her views..."Through The Eyes of a Lady Bug".

A Twist-T Project
Denise, from Galloway Gallery, recently received a request to paint a "Home" sign. The customer shared a photo of an item she saw in a magazine or on Pinterest. She expressed that she liked the poem and the art on the reference piece, but she wanted it larger with a more rustic style. As she finished describing her desired piece she remained hopeful that someone on the ReTwist-T Team could bring her vision to life. A few weeks later Denise delivered on that dream! When the customer arrived to pick up her Special Order she was surprised and thrilled that the painting was exactly what she had in mind! Later that day she wrote to the Team, "Just
wanted to thank you for the picture that you made, I love it!!!"
Denise, thank you for bringing happiness to a Home!
