What I Do
I make handmade items for your home. Wood signs, inspirational messages, decorative items, personalized gifts.
They hang on your wall or sit on your shelf.
But most importantly, they express who you are.
I Can Make That!
Have you ever thought that to yourself, or even said it out loud, after seeing something in a store or online? I used to.
Then something happened. Instead of just saying it to myself, I started to do it. I did a little bit of research, got familiar with my husband’s tools, and started to teach myself how to make things.
At first, I asked my husband to do the “big cuts” for me. Then he suggested I learn how to use the saw. This was a big deal because when I was a little girl, my dad put the fear of God into me about power tools. Especially saws.
Would it have been different if I were a boy? Probably. It was a different time and he was trying to protect his daughter. Regardless, I’ve been scared of power saws ever since.
But I was tired of waiting for my husband to do things for me. So I took the plunge and learned how to use it. And I LOVED it!
I don’t ask my husband to do things for me anymore. It’s not my husband’s tools in the garage. They’re MY tools. And I’ve acquired more -- a miter saw, a table saw, a router, a biscuit joiner.
What this journey has taught me is that indeed, I can make that. And have fun doing it!
