Announcement    Greetings everyone, If you are thinking of gifting one of my hand made Lazy Susans this Christmas, please get your orders in early. We never know how the post office will be handling things. My boxes are large and heavy, and I'd hate for you to not receive your gift in time. We will stop taking Christmas orders on December 11. Thank you for all of your support throughout the years! We appreciate all of you. xoxo

Welcome to Happy Home Design Art. I am so happy that you stopped by. My name is Janet DIneen. My home art studio is located in Aransas Pass, Texas, a town that is close to Port Aransas, Rockport and Corpus Christi, Texas. My home studio is where I create all of the artwork that I have for sale in the shop. I hope you enjoy!

From the cutting of the wood, to the final finish, the work is made by hand. My husband Mike has joined me in the business. He is now the main carpenter, cutter and sander of the wood. This has helped tremendously!

I have been an artist ever since I can remember, and creating is what I love. I also love working with wood, so being able to combine my two passions to make something beautiful is a dream come true!

If you would like to see me in action, we added an amateur video, filmed by my husband Mike. It is of me popping the bubbles on the epoxy finish with the torch. I have also been featured on Texas Country Reporter. You can see the episode if you go to YouTube and search Lazy Susans. I'd share, but I can't figure out how. There are also several photo's of the process that goes into my work. You can see these images on the "About" page below.

The "About" page also has different brick and mortar places that carry my work.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or would like me to create something special for you. I enjoy working with new ideas.
Many times my new product ideas are suggestions from people just like you! Give me a shout, drop me a line. I would love to hear your thoughts!

Thank you for visiting!
Janet

Happy Art Helps to Make a Happy Home!

Hi Everyone, We are Janet and Mike. You might have seen us on Texas Country Reporter where they did a feature about our hand made Lazy Susans. It is now available on YouTube. If you search Janet Dineen on the Texas Country Reporter You Tube Show, it will pop up. I’d share the link if I could figure it out.

Welcome to my world. So happy that you found me. I create coastal artwork, mostly from wood, painting and epoxy resin. I love what I do, and I would like to create something special for you. I am back in the Studio, ready to go, so bring on the orders!

Below is a bunch of information that most people will not care a bit about. I had to write a bio for an art show that I was in, so here it is....
Janet's current creative endeavors consist of mixed media, mosaic, painting and illustration. She is currently working from her home studio in Aransas Pass, Texas. There she creates Lazy Susan's from wood, mosaic wall plaques and whimsical drawings and paintings.

Always being a creative type, her art has evolved organically throughout the years, shifting with the changes of life, travel, motherhood and career.

In the 1970's she worked in the Printing and Graphic Art's industry in Austin. There she had the opportunity to work part time with the print shop that produced the live music posters of the day. This was a big part of her early inspiration. During this time, she started taking classes in graphic arts.

In the early 1990's she began her mosaic career with a bunch of old tiles and a cracked slab that needed… something. Two years and many cut feet later, the project of a lifetime was finished. She was sure Home and Garden TV would come calling, but they never found her. Since then, she has refined her mosaic skills and learned to use a wet saw.

In the late 1990's she began a new career, training to be a trim carpenter. This opened up a world of opportunities and ideas, the best thing being the use and respect for power tools. Combining wood, tile and decorative painting has kept her imagination going many miles per hour for a long time.

Inspiration comes from so many places. From the rugged craftsmanship of hand carved and painted signs in Mexico, to mosaic tiled store fronts, to American and Mexican folk art. She finds beauty in the making and the makers. She believes that we were all born to create! (And she likes to say, "You can't buy that at Walmart!""

Locally, you can find her mosaic wall plaques hanging on the outside of several homes here in Port Aransas. Her wooden Lazy Susan's are displayed at The Port Aransas Art Center, The Rockport Center for the Arts and at Texas by Design in Rockport, Texas.


A large percentage of my work is made to order. The listing photo's that are displayed in my Etsy shop are samples of my work. Many have been sold. I will re-create another original that looks almost, just like the picture. It will most likely be a little nicer. The more I make, the better I get.

There are many steps involved in creating the items that I make. From the cutting of the wood, to the sanding and priming, to the painting, and finally the epoxy. Each step is a different job. Lazy Susan Centerpieces are my best sellers right now. They are fun and functional art, and can be used as wedding gifts, centerpieces, house warming presents, Christmas gift originals or a nice addition to your family table!

I hope you enjoy my work. Custom orders are always welcome, no matter how strange you might think they sound. I welcome a good challenge! If you have gotten this far, there is one more thing on my mind. I put my heart, soul and usually a little DNA into every piece that I send out. I honestly want you to be very happy with my work. If you have an issue, please let me know. One bad review can destroy a shop. Every positive review helps immensely!

Thank you for visiting, and I hope to make something special for you soon!

    When not creating in the studio, I pick up trash while walking Auggie. I wish it weren't so. I wish peoples give a darn worked.

    My husband finally gave in to the fact that I was not going to give up the desire to have Etsy work for me/us. Since he has started helping me, our sales have gained so much momentum. I hope it keeps up. He is the best, plus he cuts the wood better.

Payment

I take Pay Pal and all of the major credit cards. If you don't have an account, just contact me and we can work something out. I am easy to work with, so let me know what you need.

Shipping

I usually make things one at a time, and I try to get things made within a few days. The way it has been working is as follows: You contact me with your custom order request, I make the item and list it with a photo as "reserved for You".You pay with pay pal or another method, and I ship the item. So far, this has worked because I get a lot of information from each customer about how they would like their custom order to be. It is an etsy trust that I hope to be able to continue. I thank you for looking, and happy trails.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Yes, I can cut the Lazy Susan's smaller or larger. I don't like to go over 20" when using the 2 part epoxy. This is due to the size restraints of my work area and shipping limitations.

Custom and personalized orders

Yes, custom orders are my specialty. It helps to be able to communicate with you about your custom order. The more ways, the better. For instance, if I am in the middle of painting a custom color, and I think something looks nice that we have not discussed, I would like to send you a quick picture so you can agree or disagree. I have learned that little questions come up all the time, and it puts my mind at ease to know we are all on the same page. Custom writing on a large piece is not my specialty. I have tried it in the past, and I was not happy with the results. I am more than willing to write something on the back.
I care very much about your satisfaction with my work. Communication is key!!

Sizing details

I am willing to talk to you about different sizes. I try not to go over 20 inches with the Lazy Susan's that I coat with epoxy. The Stingrays are larger. The epoxy is very tricky to work with, and the larger the area, the more room for defects. I do my best, and work very hard to get a nice finish.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I ship my Lazy Susan's in Pizza Boxes, new and unused. I purchase them from a food supply house. They are usually white.

If the piece will not fit in a pizza box, I will improvise as best as I can.

I am happy to include a hand made, custom gift or note card inside the package. Please let me know what you wish it to say.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I’m happy to consider all suggestions.

Many Thanks, We appreciate all of you.
Janet and Mike
