Patience Brewster Halloween Bat Witch 08-30906
Bat Witch Figure-08-30906 Dimensions: 31" x 16" Primary Material: Stone Resin Hand Made, Hand Painted. In 2000 Patience Brewster discovered through the grapevine that Department 56 was interested in making some of my cards into ornaments. It turned out that they not only liked her designs but, for the first time in history, they trusted her and trusted the public.
They did not ask her to change a thing. When the first little Krinkles arrived from the Philippines, she was amazed.
They looked exactly like the ones Patience had made and painted herself! Incredibly enough, they just flew off the shelves. So Patience made more Krinkles and have been making them ever since. From 2000 to 2002, Patience dedicated all of her spare time to compiling a rather large body of work. She painted about twenty or thirty illustrations and submitted them to the card company she had been working with for years.
Patience was very excited to see this turn into a line of cards. They turned it all down. Well, that lit a fire in Patience.
She was about to turn fifty and decided this was it: She was going to launch her own card company. Patience twisted her husband's arm to help. In 2002 they gathered a pile of sticks and made furniture and arbors from which to dangle her ornaments. She covered panels with gold leaf and wired them up to display her new "line" of cards and went off to the overwhelming New York Stationery show. They had printed up actual catalogs, but the cards were just dummies, pretend cards. It was all very, very scary and, in hindsight, very, very fun, and all in all, it turned out to be a really good idea. Now Patience is spending all of her time designing cards and ornaments while working on her annual original art show with her sister on Martha's Vineyard. Just for the record, there are still couple of stories waiting patiently in her drawer.
