Serena Travis' new recording studio is open for business.

WAITSBURG-There is action happening at 208 Main street in The Plaza Theater building with Marilyn Johnson re-opening her gift shop Etc., while her daughter Serena Travis is remodeling the space to the right as a voiceover studio.

Currently, Etc. offers stocking stuffer type items, such as Christmas decorations, candles and knickknacks, with a hope to include more craft items in the near future. The shop will be open Thursdays through Sundays. Customers are also advised to check in on their Facebook page to see current openings. Johnson has also added some gently used clothing and shoes to her inventory.

Travis and her husband Drake Travis moved to Waitsburg just before Thanksgiving this year; they previously lived in North Carolina, and also spent a couple of years in Hollywood, CA.

Her business name, "Divine Sign Productions" reflects her Christian faith, and she says she is most well known for her Bible narration podcast "The Seven Streams," noting that it has received over 100,000 downloads.

She offers coaching services to people who want to record their own work and has the technical expertise and the soundproofed recording booth in which to engineer and produce the recordings.

Travis mentioned that Emmy-nominated voiceover artist Melissa Disney is one of her mentors and that they have worked together in workshop settings to educate others in the art of voice recording.

She plans to market her business online and through word of mouth and would like to encourage anyone who has an interest in recording their own work to contact her through her website,
