A Tale of Two Girls

I am so excited to announce officially - that Mab Studios is growing!
My one-girl shop has just become a Two Girl shop.
Three years ago I met a lady named Darcy Danger.  My life has not been the same since. 
You know how sometimes you meet someone and - it's just right? That's what happened.
Darcy has been an encourager, cheerleader, advice giver, sounding board and dear friend ever since. 
This Summer I was having a REALLY hard time even pretending to remotely keep up (preparing for 7 events this Fall!) - when she offered the perfect solution: Darcy is my new Agent and Manager.
Darcy's history in sales, management, marketing and customer relations matched with her bubbly personality, minute attention to the small stuff and her overwhelming passion for Art made it ridiculous that we had not thought of it sooner.
So what’s new?
The Mab Shops have moved to New Jersey! 
Almost all the shipping will be coming out of Danger Studios in NJ this year. Also,  Darcy is helping me keep up with my emails (left to my own, I get to answer emails once every 4-8 days! I really needed help there >_<) so you will be hearing back from us MUCH sooner than ever before!
What’s the Same?
Everything! It’s all just better.
Everything is still produced 100% by me, I'm just not spending 10 hours a week packing and shipping! 
What's Better?
Everything. Now I can streamline my studio life and spend more time doing what my soul desperately craves - painting. I will be able to create more original works, more cameos and sculpture and branch out into trying new things I've only been able to sigh about. 
If you are bopping around my Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/mabgraves) feel free to send Darcy a note to say hello or ask her any questions! Trust me - she's amazing.
 Here is a shot of Danger Studios where the Waifs now await!

  6. Hello Mab! Darcy is so excited about this blog. She is so deserving, for she lives, eats and breathes Mab Graves, and I'm sure the two of you will work well together. I was the first person that Darcy sold your work to. She had just begun helping you, and from what I understand, you told her, you wanna work for me? OK, here's your first sale...get back to this person. And she did, and I ended up buying something like 7 prints for my gallery, and it's in New Jersey, too. The Artist's Eye Gallery...In closing I'd like to say that I hope your move went well and we're glad to have you on the east coast!
    Regars,
    Michelle Colon
