Welcome to KPW Productions!!

Hello and welcome to KPW Productions! Allow me to make a few introductions and set the scene for this journey that we are embarking on.

KPW is the brainchild of my family, each of whom is artsy in their own way and each of whom has started a business with their art.  I am the K of KPW. I have run a successful voice studio for 13 years and have been singing professionally for over twenty. I also am an avid book and paper maker.  My husband, Wombat, is the W. He is a write and editor and a bookmaker. His bookmaking hobby was born out of his love of games and wanting a small pocket book to keep his notes and info that could fit in his dice bag. Friends (gamer and not) liked them and things took off from there.  Our daughter, Peanut, is the P. The Peanut is an artist in the traditional and digital realm. I may be a little biased, but I think her art is pretty amazing.

Recently both Peanut and Wombat opened online shops featuring some of their wares.  Peanut owns Wafflewares over at Tee Spring. She has several of her designs up there in the form of T-shirts and sweatshirts, stickers, posters, pillows, and mugs (and more).  Right now, her products are based on scans of her original work, but stay tuned, because she has a very cool idea for a line of characters that are half cat and half dragon that will be showing up in the next month or two.  Wombat owns Wombat's Workshop over at Etsy. He has his 3"x5" pocket notebooks up with more designs to follow.

And this is where I come in. I am the business manager for the family. I keep the stores running and handle a good chunk of the marketing, but I also play a creative role in Wombat's Workshop. I am the embellisher of notebooks. (I really should just make that my job title). If you buy a notebook and want it stamped, I'm the stamper. If you want that stamp inked or watercolored, I do that also. I will also be designing custom papers and covers for Wombat's notebooks and eventually creating and making my own book designs.

We are only at the beginning of this journey and I'm excited about what's to come. I invite you to stick around to see what happens next.
