Once again, the holidays are behind us and a New Year is here.

Do you make resolutions or set personal goals? Sometimes I do…. But mostly I take the time to simply reflect on the past year…

It seems like it was just yesterday that I was prepping for my first tradeshow (American Made DC,) fretting over my booth, creating and re-creating my line sheets, and worrying about the weather.

After years of working the art fair/festival circuit, I felt in my heart I had finally created a wholesale line of work that I could present to artisan gift galleries and hand-made shops around the country – and it was a line that distinctively represented ME as an artist.

Boy, was I ever nervous to present it to a whole new world of art buyers that I had NO experience with dealing! But in my heart, I knew this felt right.

So I took a chance…. I hustled. I worked REALLY hard. And THIS is where it landed me....

I launched the The Wildwood Series in January of 2016 and by the end of last year it was being carried by 16 stores in 12 different states! What?

It still feels so surreal and fills my heart with warmth and gratitude.

What a journey this has been…. And I am ONE. GRATEFUL. MAKER.

And the best news about this reflection? It continues in 2017….

More states. More stores. More Ruby Rose Studio decor in the homes of people who appreciate “all the pretty things” as much as you and me.

Here’s what’s new in 2017!

1. I’ve decided to leave my pricing and shipping fees UNCHANGED for 2017. (That's right! No price hike here!)

2. Last summer, I added two new colors to the Wildwood mix—black and white. They are created using the same textured background with a subtle hint of shimmer. You can choose copper or silver trees and have the option of choosing a moon in the opposite metallic color.

3. The purple Wildwood in 2017 is a little lighter (more periwinkle); the green is lighter too (think celery;) and the light teal (bright turquoise) is as striking as ever. **You can see all the new shades mentioned above by clicking here...

4. NEW! NEW! NEW! I have a brand-new line of ARTISAN MIRRORS being released this spring—of course, you'll be the first to know when I finalize all the details….(hint, hint... a new TREE mirror is coming!) ***Keep an eye out for all of the latest mirrors here at my site...

I know for me…. 2016 was pretty amazing and I am looking forward to sharing my love for art with you in 2017 and beyond.

Can’t wait to hear from you.

All My Best,
