"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, live the life you've imagined." Thoreau couldn't have said it any better.  Yup, this is what we have decided to do.  We are moving forward in the direction of our dreams.  We are ecstatic about where we are headed, so many new adventures await us.   That has lead us to a very difficult decision.  We have decided to close our Etsy shop indefinitely.   It has been a wild, handmade ride folks.  Wow!  What an adventure it's been the past 3+ years.  We have had the privilege to accomplish way more than we EVER dreamed was possible with our little biz. 

WE cannot thank Y'All enough.  OUR fans, friends, family, + customers are simply the best.  WE treasure each shirt we had the honor to make for a birthday, photo shoot, colloboration, special occasion.  All of the relationships made via Oh Fiddlesticks! are treasured.  We hope y'all continue to folow us via instagram as we take this year to explore, and live simply as 2 creative momma's + friends.  

You can find me, Melissa on Instagram as melabdine.  I will be posting photos of my girls,  my adventures in photography, travel, crafting, headstands, running {I am training for a 10k and tri later this spring} as well as yoga teacher training.  I hope to launch a new creative blog this fall and will keep y'all posted on where you can find me...

You can find Jen on Instagram as jenilizi.  She will be posting photos of her girls, her adventures in photograpy, muraling, painting, crafting, treasure hunting for her new digs in Austin, and biking around town...


Thank you  again for ALL of your LOVE + support.  This biz has been a dream come true and we would not have been able to fulfill this dream without YOU.

Go forth and dream...


xxoo,
Melissa + Jen

I have been in your exact shoes and it was the best choice I have ever made. I am so excited and thrilled for what awaits you two intelligent, brave, talented, and amazing women! You guys are in for such a fun and *freeing* ride. So honored to know you both and glad that I have a nice little stash of Oh Fiddlesticks tees to keep my boys suited up stylishly! Love you both! xo
