I started out with the business name Donna Diddit in 2010. Eight full years in, I have been astounded by how successful a micro-studio with a laser engraver can be. And by micro, I mean a studio of one. Me. Donna. I do it. All of it. Yes, I have occasional helpful humans, but it is definitely a one gal leading the charge sort of operation. During the past three years, I have adapted my business to be a part of more art markets and Renaissance festivals, allowing me to explore the craft side of laser engraving, travel, and keeping in touch with family and friends. "The Owl and The Hourglass" is my creative studio side, and as of January 1, 2019, it will become the focus and leading name of the business.
What that means for most folks is that the website will focus on the art and craft offerings rather than services. So while I will still consider custom requests for laser engraving services, it will not be the part of my business which grows forward. Because I cannot split myself in twain, one aspect must be given priority and for the future, that is The Owl and The Hourglass.
