Thank you for stopping by my site to enjoy my work.
Below please read a bit about how pieces become available and a little bit about my creative process.
Each piece is designed and created solely by myself. As a "one woman show" I also
handle correspondence, photography, web design , packaging and most other elements of this small creative business.
(Bless my husband for handling shipping as that might put me over the edge!)
I do my best to keep everything running smoothly and thank you in advance for when it might not.
Periodically I hold "online shows" (about every 8 weeks as the seasons allow). These pieces are often created with a theme or holiday in mind. These "shows" are held on a specific date and time on the "Gallery" page of this website. Each piece is sold via email in a "first come first serve" format. Please be patient with me during these shows as I work to answer each email in the order it's received.
I also host what I like to call "Wild Hare Wednesdays". A weekly offering of just one piece, available at noon EST on the main page of my blog. This is fun and subject to my creative whim of the week. This piece is often a rabbit, but might be a mouse, squirrel or other character
In addition, I exhibit in a very limited number of "physical" shows each year. Details of those events can be found on my "events" page as well as on my blog. Each is a beautiful show full of quality artisans and worth attending.
While I do my best to honor "requests", please understand that I don't create "custom" work. Some of my pieces I create can be reproduced fairly closely, some I may capture the "essence" while others are truly one of a kinds. Because each work is created individually, materials may change due to availability and no two faces will be the same. Please feel free to email me with questions about specific pieces as I do manage to fulfill a few requests as time allows.
I will be VERY honest in saying that I often run behind on "requests". I love what I do and am at peace stitching all day, but often I struggle to get started on making something I have already made before when there are so many new ideas asking to be brought to life. I can easily become "stuck" and it may take time to get "un-stuck". Once I begin I truly enjoy the process and things fall into place.
Update: October 1 ~ 2016
I have made the difficult decision not to accept any orders or commissions for the rest of 2016 and 2017. Spending much of 2016 healing from a badly broken leg has taught me that I need to slow down a little and let the creative juices lead me on their own path. We all get so busy and "filled up" with work, family and life that the only way to make room for new experiences is to let go of things that no longer excite us. These things become fond memories and part of the history that makes us who we are.
I love what I do, yet I need a little time to dream and create with a little less pressure. I will continue to offer new works on "Wild Hare Wednesdays" as well as on periodic "web shows" and at a few physical events a year.
If you would like to join my email list for notifications of future online shows and other events, please send me an email! Lorianncorelis@mac.com ~ I send a weekly notice, usually on Tuesday telling if there will be a "Wild Hare Wednesday" offering or if there is some other event in the near future.
May all your stitches be happy!
