We made this custom water bottle for the owner of Spinning Wheel Appraisals in Hamburg, PA! She loves it and we’re so proud of how perfectly it turned out! It’s just like her logo!
Made 50 of these custom beauties for our local school district’s Special Olympics! I was so proud seeing the students with their personalized bottles!

Handmade with love, from our family to yours.

Starting a blog and selling some of our crafts on Etsy has always been something my family and I have wished to do for years now. Dennis, (my father) is the brains behind every wood craft that is sold on our Etsy page. He draws, cuts, and paints everything by hand. So every one of his wood crafts has been carefully designed with a steady hand and lots of patience! Another member of our team is my mother Lisa. Lisa is currently working on something exciting for our shop so none of her creations have been posted as of yet. However, Lisa is the boss of the business! In other words, she oversees everything from the start of a design to clicking the "post" button on our Etsy page; if it weren't for her I think Dennis and I would be a little lost! I design all of the jewelry on our page, everything you see has been the result of hours in the craft store or on a crafting website and even more time carefully choosing color schemes and putting things together. Our heart and soul is in this business and that is why we want to share it and our lives through this blog!
Another member of our team is my older sister Jessica, she has down syndrome and is a big part of our family. None of her creations have been posted yet but Lisa is also working hard with Jessica on some cool projects that will be appearing soon!

    Owner, Creator, Customer Service

    Hello! I am a recent college grad with a passion for creating/DIY. I make all of the jewelry, mugs, and help Jessica with her magnets/jewelry dishes as well as Lisa with her wreaths. We also have a blog! Check it out:

  • Dennis Welgo


    I enjoy working outdoors and being in nature. I developed a passion for woodworking in my 20's and since then have partnered that with my ability to draw/paint in fine detail. I draw every wood item in our shop, cut it, and then paint it free hand.

  • Lisa Welgo


    I enjoy volunteering and donating to local animal shelters. I enjoy reading, photography, and relaxing by the lakeside. I design and make all of the wreaths/floral decor and give inspiration, ideas, and approval to Alissa, Dennis, & Jessica's crafts.

  • Jessica


    Hello! My name is Jessica, I am a 30 year old young woman with Down Syndrome. I am Lisa and Dennis' daughter and Alissa's big sister. I make the magnets and the jewelry dishes in our shop!
