Out with the old

Stuff.  You have it.  It happens.  Whether it's good stuff or bad, too much stuff can stifle my creativity.  I suppose it would've been easier to just dust off some old stuff and go back to business as it was, but that's not who I am.  Instead, I've spent the past month purging my little home/studio of clutter in all forms.  Rooms were completely tossed and reassembled, patterns evaluated and tweaked, and everything Babester was put under the microscope.  Things that worked were celebrated and embraced.  Things that didn't?  Gone!

My first year as a shopowner was a fun little experiment.  I made some great new friends, met all kinds of amazing fiber artists, and had the pleasure of sharing my art with a lot of wonderful people.  Now, it's time to grow.  The bad news: Babester as we know it doesn't exist anymore.  It hasn't for about a year now, and it's just too dusted*, rusted, can't be trusted to resurrect.

The good news is: Babester is back! Only different! Newer, shinier and now with more sparkle! After a long break, I am returning to my fiber love. To mark this transition, I have updated the shop, complete with a new name. The fiberland formerly known as “Babester” is now BabesterArts.  I'm putting all that I've learned in my first year of shopmavenry (and wordsmithing, apparently) into bringing you more batts, more yarn, and more smooshy fiber goodness.  New year, new shop, and all sorts of new adventures.

Watch this space for details about the grand reopening sale! In with the new!!!

*- it was never busted.  Babester was, by all measures, a success.  It's just time for Babester 2.0
