“What’s it Mean?” Atelier: french for: studio, showroom, and artist’s space. Or Workshop. Yes. All that. That’s what we have now. Thank you JY. Joyce is my fairygodmother. Which works, because my other godmother is a Joyce too. Joyce Yarling, owner of Waechters has been a pillar of support and an amazing mentor. I can’t thank her enough. Or any of the Waechterttes. You all teach me so much. XO.
