Ornament looks awesome and seller was awesome. I asked if she could include a note because this was being sent as a gift and she went above and beyond by printing something really pretty to include in the package with the message I asked to include. Thanks for such a great shopping experience and my friend loves the ornament!!

About

Fran's Girls will burn their way into your hearts.

We are named for our mom, Fran, who passed away in 2012. She would have been so proud of what we've accomplished and what we're working towards. She taught us from an early age a love of crafting and working with our hands. She loved nature and our inspiration is through her.

Why we started - last August, 2013, we attended the Lumberjack Festival in Newaygo, Michigan. We were looking for rustic items for our dad's house. He and my mom live(d) in an A-Frame house on the Muskegon River. We were disappointed to find there weren't many rustic handmade items at the craft show and festival. There were maybe two or three vendors that were selling items that were made out of wood. We have found that more and more "craft shows" are packed with vendors selling baseball caps, bumper stickers and tee shirts. The three of us love to craft, but we didn't have crafting skills that really had used wood as a medium. Hmm...what to do.... Fast forward to a few weeks later. Beth was taking a boat ride down the Muskegon River with our Uncle. He stopped along the riverbank to grab a small tree that a beaver had taken the bark off of and said that he was going to make it into a walking stick for a friend. The ligthbulb went on, Beth thought that small tree would look really neat with designs woodburned onto it.

Beth bought woodburning tools. Christine and Andrea bought woodburning tools. The rest is history. Our great state of Michigan and all of the beautiful places within it are our true inspiration. We love creating items that celebrate it. We love selling those items to people who also want to celebrate it. But we don't stop there. We also make unique items for rustic weddings, signs with beloved quotes and wine charms. Everyday we are getting new ideas and we can't wait to share the end product with you!!

Recently, Beth moved to Georgia, so don't be surprised if your items have been shipped from the South. But don't worry, they will still be made with the same love and care (and on Michigan wood) as you have always expected from our product. And Christine and Andrea are still in Michigan working away as well.

Please let us know if you have any questions about our products. We love hearing from you and will do anything in our power to work with you.
