The last few weeks have been wonderful and very busy in my studio. So many new friends have visited my webpage and social media accounts and have been so generous with lovely comments, likes and messages.
Lots of little snowmen flew out into the world and even though there wasn’t one for everyone, I hope that my posts and pictures have also spread joy and made you smile. I could finish all my little works in progress and I am happy that Fern, my first doll of 2022 and Hugo, my first little bear of 2022 have also found wonderful new homes.
There are some changes in the air as mARTi creates is moving. I feel lucky enough to call a few places home but after almost 20 years abroad the time has come to move back to Switzerland. Saying goodbye doesn’t become easier no matter how often one moves…but my family and I are looking forward to the new chapter and being back in our home country and closer to family and friends after all these years.
An expat life brings lots of adventures, challenges and often change. The one thing that has accompanied me since I moved to Australia in the early 2000 is my crafting. I have tried many different crafts but have always come back to creating friendly faces and charming characters. I have created countless dolls, teddy bears and felted friends and I’m sure this has helped me cope with all our moves & new beginnings.
All available figures have found a loving new home and I would like to thank each and everyone of you for your support and interest in my work. While I cannot make a living from my crafts, I can support my hobby and spread joy around the world. This is a dream come true!
Thank you for visiting and for following my creative journey. It will be a bit quieter here on mARTi creates but more creations will come to live once we’re all settled in our new home. Thank you for your patience and for sticking around! Regina x
