The Artisan Group

As a charter member of The Artisan Group, I have been fortunate to see the quick growth of this extraordinary group in such a short amount of time.

"The Artisan Group is a group of talented artisans who collectively provides a lovely sampling of our products to celebrities and members of the press.  Most celebs even pose for a professional photo holding our displays!...Our group is exclusive, and we select only the best-of-the-best to represent"

Valerie Guerrero and Nikki Cutro, founders of the group, lead with such enthusiasm and professionalism that I truly feel that Wags and Wiggles would not be where it is today if I was not contacted last year and asked to join. It is not just the celebrity exposure I have received at Award Gift Lounges but the self confidence and business knowledge that has been gained by my involvement.  I have always lived by "quality, not quantity" when it comes to friends but I can say that I have gained so many friendship through this group without every meeting one member face to face.  You really get the feeling that we are all in the together and are there to help each other in any way we can.  I enjoy and cherish this group and those that are members very much.  Thank you Valerie and Nikki for The Artisan Group, and thank you The Artisan Group for your support in growing my "pet toy and accessory" business. :0)

Off to finish my celebrity gifts for the Oscars! (future blog post to come...)

I'm back....

Wow, what a crazy holiday season it was for me!  Wags and Wiggles sales were fantastic, I was very fortunate to participate in the GBK Productions Golden Globes Gift Lounge thanks to The Artisan Group, built a new sewing "studio" in a corner of my house, and enjoyed a fantastic holiday with the family!

Now on to 2012... I have been having such a great time designing some new toys for my Etsy shop, I hope everyone like them as much as I do. I promise to elaborate on the happenings of Wags and Wiggles/me more in future (and more often) with many exciting blog posts. First,  I need to meet my deadline of shipping off my Oscar Celebrity Swag Bag Gifts...yep, Wags and Wiggles is going to the Oscars!

More to come in 2012!
