Such a pleasure to work with! Took the time to go back and forth with me until my product was just right! Would definitely purchase from Louise again! Thank you for making this special sign!

I ordered a custom sign from Louise at A Mixed Bag. It is incredible! Louise took the time, through several messages back and forth, to really understand what I was looking for. The sign is better than I could have imagined! Thank you Louise!

Discovering What I Love To Do

My shop is my second career. It's an adventure in finding out what I am passionate about doing with the rest of my life. It started with buying a sawmill to harvest our own trees and build our dream home. I learned what it takes to be a sawyer and get not only the most but the best and most beautiful cuts out of a log. It progressed to building my own raised garden boxes. Then it was garden accessories such as vegetable markers, trellises, hods, tomato cages, and wooden planters. I joined a farmer's market to get the word out about my garden boxes. People loved my garden markers. From there I was asked to do other wood burned signs such as pet memorial plaques, gate signs, direction markers and more. Then I moved on to picnic tables, rustic boxes and side tables, candle holders, soap dishes, business card holders and children's games. I bought more tools and learned more skills. I've made rocking horses for loved ones. I have a desire to make jewelry boxes, more rustic furniture, more kids games, tables, chairs, benches and the list goes on and on. 2014 will see me build my own year round woodworking shop. In the meantime I'm feeding my love of sewing with bags, baby slings, and quilts for loved ones. I'm always looking at new ideas and ways to use up my fabric scraps. So, you're welcome along for the ride. Enjoy my growth and creativity. Perhaps it will give you some ideas and spur some creativity of your own. Everything and anything is possible if it's what you love to do.

I also have a website (a work in progress as that is not my passion) which showcases some of my creations. You can also subscribe to my Facebook page. See the links to both on the right.
