It has been some time since I've updated this blog. I have been recovering from chronic Lyme disease. It's been a long road, but I'm happy to feel well enough to be giving you news of a new project.
I am pleased to announce a new project called "Zip Pulls for Lyme Relief." I am launching a campaign to sell $2000 worth of my Fern House Studio zip pulls to put towards my Lyme recovery. I hope you will take part!
There are 3 styles available: owl, bunny and lucky kitty zip pulls. Each zip pull is $10.95 plus $4.05 shipping and tax. The more zip pulls you buy, the better the deal. So total price, 1 zip pull = $15, 2 = $28, and 3 = $36. (If you want more than 3, go with the $12 each price).
You can purchase these at my Etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/fernhousestudio

I have a new Ebay shop featuring items from my studio as well as Japanese pottery finds and other handmade goods. Check it out by clicking here.
