Did you really make this?

Is this really handmade? 

This seems to be the question du jour at Mystic Moon Media lately. And you know what? It is an excellent question and we are always happy to answer it. 

99% of the time, the answer is yes! Cherie makes all the artwork, necklaces, journals, cards, magnets, buttons, BOS/XL journals, bookmarks, pocket mirrors, quill pens, and parchment paper she sells*. The leftover 1% is the frames for artwork, but if she had more time, she would make those, too. 

Does she do all of the work by herself? Most of it. Sometimes she may ask for help with matting and packaging prints or stuffing journals. The rest is all her. 

So when you walk into her Bristol Renaissance Faire booth this summer and see the shelves stocked with goodies, just remember every item is a result of Cherie's handy work. In this day and age of mass production, we think that makes her products even more special. 

* Did you notice the mention of a couple of new items that will be in the shoppe this summer?
