A new look for the Chickens!
I am currently redesigning the website and logo. While the current site served its purpose for the initial start-up phase, I’m finding it’s become a bit too cluttered and wordy. The focus should be on illustration and I want the main site to showcase that.
After a lot of researching and many, many hours of trial and error, I finally found a nice site for my store. That will also undergo some changes as I redesign the overall brand.
Thank you for your patience.
I am very excited to have Krissy Boyd join Stick Chickens as my Marketing Consultant! She is the owner of Krissy Boyd Designs and has developed a solid portfolio and a loyal local client base for her new business. She is extremely enthusiastic about this project and I am honored and extremely grateful to have her help and support! Welcome aboard Krissy!

I am happy to do custom orders. Is there something you love in the Gallery but don’t see in the shop? Have a great idea for your own personal Stick Chickens? Send me a message with a description of what you would like to have made.

Before you say “Oh my… that’s pricey…,” please remember each item is handmade.
I apologize for not updating in a while. I have been taking care of a lot of things that, frankly, aren’t very interesting to write about: buying a domain name, getting the site to show up in search engines, setting up email, calculating fees, creating price charts, shipping methods, shipping costs, setting up PayPal… I can see your eyes glazing over as I speak. Still, it’s business that needs to be taken care of, however tedious it may be. And although I am proud of them, I have a feeling you are not too interested in seeing the spreadsheets I’ve created.
All of that has been satisfying to complete, but mostly not visible to you. There are a couple of things I have been working on that you can see right away. The first is acquiring a domain name! While stickchickens.wordpress.com will still work, you don’t need it anymore. From now on stickchickens.com will bring you here. Also, the Gallery is finally set up. My next post will be for the
What did I do today? Drawing, drawing, cut some paper, and more drawing. I’d say it was a productive day. Here’s a little behind the scenes photo collection of today’s work.
