Announcing Raven and Toad Studio

Raven and Toad Studio | An Etsy Store

Hello everyone!

Today, I am pleased to mention that I have opened up an Etsy store called Raven and Toad Studio. My plans for this store, including commissions, have been delayed due to COVID-19, so to start I am focusing on digital downloads for beadweaving patterns where I don’t have to ship you anything directly. I will have more uploaded soon! Most of my patterns will require knowledge of the basic stitch, but I’ll keep you posted as the store develops.

This is an example of a pattern you can purchase for a peyote-stitched beaded ring:

Pot of Gold Ring

To start, I have some fun patterns. My philosophy is that you should be able to find adjustments regardless of your measurements. I do scale bigger for my patterns and include instructions to size up and down. There’s a few more elaborate designs I’m working on, too, that I think you’ll really enjoy. Exciting!

Want to Interview or Hire Me? Send Fan Mail?

Would you like to hire me? Because my projects and manuscripts are in flux, I am always open to discussing new opportunities with publishers and studios. As a full-time writer, I spend a portion of my time seeking new gigs–so don’t be afraid to reach out. If you’re interested, please e-mail me via my Contact Page. I typically reply to work-related e-mails within one-to-two business days.

Want an interview? If you’d like to interview me or request a guest blog post, please connect with me via the contact page, too. Due to time constraints and other communicative concerns, I typically don’t follow up on requests via social media.

Keen on sending fan mail? I am also happy to engage with readers and fans. Please note that I am unable to reply satisfactorily to certain types of queries related to the companies I work for due to the agreements I typically sign. If you have a question about a TV show or a line of books, the best way to get your answer is to contact the studio or publisher directly.
