About

Growing up I always loved arts, drawing, writing stories or creating something. At age 9 I draw the plans for my 3-stories Barbie doll house and had it made in wood. Recently at a school reunion an old friend said she was surprised I didn't become an Architect.

Instead of Architecture I almost went to Medical School! I have a strong background in Science (slightly reflected on my Periodic Table signs), Education, Arts, Design, Accounting, Languages (Portuguese, French, Spanish and Italian). After serving a church mission abroad living with people from all over the world and actually using the languages I had studied, I ended up graduating in International Relations from BYU (Brigham Young University).

Now I'm a wife of a very supportive husband and mother of almost 4 (the baby will arrive around Christmas time)…

Instead of Architecture I almost went to Medical School! I have a strong background in Science (slightly reflected on my Periodic Table signs), Education, Arts, Design, Accounting, Languages (Portuguese, French, Spanish and Italian). After serving a church mission abroad living with people from all over the world and actually using the languages I had studied, I ended up graduating in International Relations from BYU (Brigham Young University).

Now I'm a wife of a very supportive husband and mother of almost 4 (the baby will arrive around Christmas time). After having my first child I felt I should stay home while my children are little, and after I had my second child and looking for a perfect customized sign that I couldn't find anywhere, I bought my first vinyl cutting machine and felt the desire to open up my own business.

While studying the best way to market my signs, I found Etsy. I love how Etsy gives me the opportunity to work on something I love while being at home, even though I get constantly interrupted to fix toys, read a book or kiss boo-boos ;) My younger children are also learning how to identify the letters from my vinyl scraps, names of tools I use for my wood signs, and they love playing with mommy's great craft supply to create their own art.

I love creating new and unique things, so custom orders are always welcome.

Thank you so much for visiting my shop and I hope you find what you're looking for or get inspired on something else I can design for you!

I also own another Etsy shop:
