When I first began creating signs in 1989 I was a very young stay-at-home mom with 2 beautiful daughters. I couldn't afford much as we we're living on a meager salary with my husband in the Army. So, if I saw something amazing and couldn't justify spending the money, I would just make it myself. After getting comfortable with my craft, my signs were primarily given as gifts. All I could think of was “if only I could turn this into a successful Business, I would be the happiest girl in the world,” as that was my dream. So, I took the plunge and with a leap of faith I started doing Wedding Expo's and selling locally. I opened my Etsy shop in 2009 and before I knew it, we were busier than I could ever have imagined; I quickly realized that I couldn't keep up with demand by myself and started recruiting help. For the first 4 years we worked out of my spare bedrooms, office and even my own bedroom during the day. Then I was able to purchase the house right next door and turned it into a beautiful, large work space with work tables built by my Father out of bowling lanes.
I want to Thank You, in advance, for taking a look at what we have to offer and checking back regularly for new additions. We would be honored to work with you on a creation that is customized just for you. Everything is made by us, we do not out-source any part of our product and it is not made in a factory.
We do not carry an inventory, every item in our shop is 'Hand Made' and created as ordered to perfection! One last thing about me is I love and collect Nutcrackers, we go on vacation to Cabo, Mexico every year. Since 2009 I have never put my Etsy shop on vacation mode~ I work 7 days a week unless my Granddaughter (the love of my life) is over visiting or I am out of town on vacation (even then, I still answer convo's and have orders going out)...
Best to you all, and thank you for taking a look~ Shelley
