Time to Start Thinking Father's Day

Father's Day might seem like it's still a ways out, but shoppers are already buying! (I love shoppers who plan ahead.) Right after Mother's Day I activated all of my wooden cards from last year, then started working on new items for this year.

My leatherette coozies have done well for weddings and other special occasions, so I thought they'd be the perfect addition for Father's Day. I'm glad the shoppers agree :)

And I had a custom request for another fun Father's Day gift. These are great for dads or grandpas. I've seen these fishing lures made with all metal before, but I love the look when made with wood. I just listed these on Saturday and have already sold a handful! Have I mentioned how much I love my customers with custom requests!!

Is your shop ready for Father's Day? Or have you started your shopping yet?

3 Generations

I hope all of the mothers out there had a wonderful Mother's Day (yes, I'm over a week late, I know!). I got to work on a fun order for Mother's Day which consisted of 3 generations for photo pendants.

The buyer ordered these for herself, her mother and her grandmother. She will get one of her mother and grandmother, her mother will get one of her and her mother and her grandmother will get one of her and her daughter.

 
I always love working on unique projects like this that make such special gifts. It's what makes the job fun :)

Wordless Wednesday - Out For a Walk

The creek just down the road from our house.

Country Life

Last week the sun popped out for a few days and I sure didn't want to miss it! I'd been seeing pictures of morel mushrooms on Facebook and wanted to do some looking of my own. Luckily we found a spot last year that's only about a mile from the house. It made for a nice walk...a little sun and little exercise :)

I found one right off the bat, but only found about 5 or 6 more. A nice start...let's just hope there are more out there in another week or two!

After my walk back, I took a stroll around the yard. Never hurts to look in your own trees, but no luck. It was still nice to just be outside and enjoy the country life :) Mama Kitty followed me on my walk around the yard.

And I can't go near the pasture without these two wanting some attention. At least in this picture they're inside the fence! They played escape artists yesterday and went to visit the neighbors...ugh!

Weeds or flowers? I'll let you decide. Either way, I think they're pretty :)


A couple more shots "touring" our property. I think those might be actual ladybugs, rather than those annoying beetles!

And after my walk, Harley and I hung out on the front steps and enjoyed some more sun. Gotta love that smile :)

Proposal Box

I love working with brides and grooms to create special items for their weddings. It makes me smile that I get to be a small part of their big day.
I was recently asked to create something special for a proposal! I was honored to be asked to create such a special piece for this fiance-to-be!

He had me create a custom box with lots of hearts and love quotes. Then I made some 4" x 6" wooden cards to fit inside the box. Each card represented a special part of their relationship.

I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. And the buyer was thrilled as well! His new bride-to-be loved every part of it. She's one lucky girl to get such a unique and special proposal :)
