New Changes!

Saturday, January 7, 2017

Hello everyone! This is just a quick announcement. I apologize for being MIA on here and with my shop. My job has kept me very busy and the apartment has just gotten so crowded, there has been very little space to create. Good news though! We are moving very soon to a bigger place, meaning more room for me to create in my free time. Expect some new stuff within the next month or so!

Happy 2017 everyone!

PILLOWS!

PILLOWS!!

I have been so excited to make these and add them to the shop. They are a mix of my favorite things: sewing, painting, and most of all being a home decor item. 

These pillows are made with a 10 oz duck fabric which is better known as canvas. The back is of white broadcloth, keeping it simple and neutral. I love canvas fabric because it is strong and best of all can be painted. I have hand painted the quotes with paint that will last on fabric so no worries about it coming off. The pillows themselves are pillow forms, meaning they were already a pillow and just needed a cover. I decided to do it this way rather than just stuffing batting on the inside so that way the pillows hold their shape better. 

One thing to note is that these are non-removable covers so the best way to clean if it gets noticeably dirty is to spot clean.

The gray pillow I actually painted the whole canvas to experiment with that technique, and I think it turned out pretty good so I decided to go ahead and make it a pillow!

Here are some pictures below.






Stop by my shop to see more photos! Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

In Time for Fall

Monday, September 12, 2016

I have added some new items to the shop! I had wanted to make more than three signs, but with making a special order and also starting my new job training, it has been busy! Take a look below of my new items:



This was fun for me to make and better yet it is everything FALL. This season is here and soon we will be bombarded with Pumpkin Spice....EVERYTHING. Even though it may be fall, I will say it has already started to feel like winter here in Colorado already...


This sign so far has been my favorite and has been other's favorite as well! I decided to change it up a bit, with making it a tad bigger and not staining it. 


This Bible verse has been something that I have kept with me for as long as I could remember. I know at one point I wanted a tattoo of it (well I still do). I decided why not share my love for this and make it a sign to spread this lovely message.

That's all for my new items, but as I said in my previous post, I have a new product coming within the next couple weeks and I am so EXCITED about it. I can't wait to share with you all and if you follow my blog or Instagram, you will be the first to know!

I love chalkboards so much, and mine come with a piece of chalk when you purchase one! Soon I will be adding some chalkboards with rustic frames!


I mean I like you very much.


Guys, this is my FAVORITE. I love how this one turned out and I have a feeling many of you will it love it too. No worries though, I will be making more signs with this quote very soon.


This song is just...everything. 


Home Sweet Home.


I love all things rustic, especially farms, and anything that reminds me of summer and simple times. More signs relating to that farm life we all love will be added in no time.


Don't forget to stop by my shop and to get more details of each item!
