About

Calling Baton Rouge

Raised in Baton Rouge as part of an entrepreneurial and artistic family, my passion for creating began at a very early age in my mother’s art studio where I would sit every evening watching her paint, sculpt and design. After graduating from Baton Rouge High & LSU with a degree in Arts Administration, I strived for daily creative outlets in order the escape the 9-to-5. As many businesses are born, Genevieve Designs began as a fun hobby of designing wreaths for my front door. At the request of a friend, I was asked to design a wreath with a large three letter monogram during a period where I was experimenting with burlap. I ended up creating the very first monogram burlap wreath! Being the creatively innovative woman I am, I also created the very first wreath with interchangeable elements. Not only are my bows interchangeable, but my monograms and chalkboards can be changed out infinitely throughout the year. My attention to detail and eye for design has earned many features through Etsy, Southern Living’s Daily South and popular life & style blogs. My wreaths can be found on doors in every state as well as Australia, Ireland, and Canada.

Frequently asked questions

How "handmade" are your handmade items?

Ridiculously handmade.

A minimum of 4 hours is put into each initial & chalkboard wreath. Tack on another hour for custom requests like new sign designs or bows.

Each roll of burlap is sorted by weight then color to ensure a seamless transition between the multiple rolls used for your wreath.

90% of the ribbon for my interchangeable bows has been hand sewn and/or cut from raw fabric as no one makes the colors/patterns/quality I demand.

Chalkboard signs are painted and glued one-by-one before vinyl is cut for your custom lettering.

Do you design everything but someone else actually makes it?

Nope.

What are the wreath dimensions & how do you hang them?

Wreaths are 24" wide and nearly 4" thick. Plush is often used to describe them.

They will fit between storm doors but be sure to measure your space in case it's narrow.

Since I literally offer thousands of possible bow, letter & chalkboard combinations, I only offer one wreath size.


I use large Command hooks on all my doors and walls. They are magical.

Business Hours & Rush

In an attempt to achieve work/life balance, I have implemented business hours:

Monday-Thursday 9 am - 3 pm.

Messages will be checked occasionally during the day. I am too easily distracted and answering a message can potentially spark an idea or send me down a wormhole of research. Before long, it's 4:00 and I'm not even close to finishing the orders I set out to make that day.

Rush is no longer available. I am sorry for any inconvenience but the stress and time it takes away from my family is unfair. Please order early as my processing times can change dramatically from day to day.

Discounts & Collaborations

To be fair to everyone and myself I have made it a policy to not discount my work. Each order is custom & handmade one at a time, not allowing for bulk or multiple item discounts. This also means I do not give my items away in exchange for blog posts, "exposure", advertising, etc.

Custom and personalized orders

Please purchase seriously. When an order is placed, you are reserving time needed to make that item(s) and in turn, may prevent me from being able to accommodate other clients.

Refunds for quickly cancelled orders (within an hour of purchase) paid through Paypal will incur a 3.5% +(.20 fee/item) to cover the commission Etsy takes per order. Since the monetary transaction occurs outside the Etsy system, they are unable to refund their portion of the order total.

Cancellations and refunds will not be granted for orders requested to ship before the stated processing time without the purchase of Rush.

Rush is not available at this time.

Monograms & Initials

If a note is not left with your letter(s) preference in your order, an attempt to contact you through Etsy will be made for clarification. If no communication is received within 12 hours, the last name initial in the shipping address will be ordered. Exchanges & refunds will not be accepted if the initial/monogram is wrong in these cases.

Colors

Please note that, although every effort is made to photograph my items accurately, I cannot guarantee every computer monitor will accurately depict the actual color of the bows, monograms and burlap. All wreaths are photographed in natural light and as such, the color of the burlap will vary based of the time of day, season and cloud cover. If you require a specific natural burlap color, this must be disclosed in your order.

When will my order ship?

Please refer to your invoice for estimated ship date. I do my best to get all orders out before or by the ship date on your invoice. The date given is, again, an estimate. I am a one-woman business and I alone handle everything from purchasing supplies, designing, packaging, shipping and every other tedious step of the process in between! On occasion, I may get a little behind schedule because of illness, bad weather, unplanned email blast or blog feature that brings an influx of orders, tv appearance, etc. In the event I foresee your order being delayed more than a couple of days, I will send a message to inform you. I do not answer messages asking when orders will ship as that one question can derail me for an hour. Squirrel?!

Can you copy something I saw on Pinterest/Facebook/Instagram?

If I can find the original designer, which I do 98% of the time, then you will be sent to them as I refuse to copy other's work. If I can not find the original designer, then I will consider making something similar but in my own style.

copying the work of others is not nice! it’s simple. don’t copy!
be inspired.
be creative.
be ORIGINAL.
be your best.
