I have been contacted by many nice people wishing to purchase wall easels. Too often, I have been slow to reply and unable to provide an exact time frame for when I expect to resume selling easels. I should explain why…
Earlier this year, we learned that my wife Cindy was positive for a hereditary disorder known as Lynch Syndrome. (She has written about her experience in a post here.) As the seriousness of the diagnosis became clear, some difficult decisions had to be made. Ultimately, this meant that she was to undergo a number of surgeries throughout the summer. Given the uncertainties, the recovery time and having a three year old son to raise, work here at Paper Bird Studio necessarily had to be put on the back burner. This meant, no painting and no woodworking. Taking care of my beloved wife and our little boy are my priority. Work can wait. I am so very proud of Cindy and how she has met these challenges. She is my superhero.
In the meantime, I have received many, many requests for the wall easels. I will not be able to fulfill all of the requests as quickly as would be hoped. But trust that I fully intend to return to my woodworking shop throughout the fall and winter. My sincere apologies to those of you who have been waiting months to purchase one of the wall easels. There will be more coming.
Thank you for your understanding.
