It all started with a little bed.

I love to try new things and my latest endeavor was woodworking. After a few pieces of furniture for our home, I decided to make a doll bed for my daughter. I loved how it turned out. I began to wonder if I could make and sell them, and my Etsy shop was born.

Since then I have become knee deep in woodworking, literally. My scrap piles could have buried me several times over by now. Good thing I live in a home with a basement. My uniform is paint spattered sweats and I vacuum myself off several times a day. But, I enjoy creating things. And I love the excuse to buy more power tools. Just when I think I couldn't possibly need another one, I discover something new.

After a few years of little beds, I turned towards words. I am loving the custom names. Different names, different fonts, different colors and finishes. Each one is unique and I never get bored.

I have set up shop in a corner of the basement, a much better arrangement than the dining room table where I started out. I love listening to audio books while I work. If you are in the market for some excellent books, some of my favorites are James Marsters reading The Dresden Files and the Mercedes Thompson Series read by Lorelei King. I appreciate the freedom of working from home and hope to do so for a long time.

    Hello, my name is Kari and I love all things crafty. I got my love of crafting from my nana. When I was little she would always have something fun for us to do and she taught me so much.

    Hi, I'm Jen. I can't remember a time when I was not interested in crafts. My first project was a dress for my barbie doll. I have learned so much about wood working from Kari in the last year and a half. The best part is I get to work with my friend!

Do I offer a discount for images to use in my listings?
I'm sorry, but I do not. There are just too many wonderful photographers out there! And I truely do spend a lot of time making and finishing these beds. I would still love to see your pictures though. And if you are generous enough to let me use them in my listings, please know that I really appreciate it and I always give credit to the photographer.

Over the past few years, I have found that the best thing about making my own furniture is that it can be exactly what I want. Nothing is too big, too small, or the wrong color. I don't have to settle. And I want to pass that on to you, so please feel free to contact me with special requests or suggestions. I make everything myself so I can completely customize items to suit your needs.
