"Just Doin' What I Do"

I love collecting "stuff" that used to be something else, and then using it in unexpected ways. Some people call it "salvage art" . . . it's just what I love to do.

A few years ago, I painted a few signs on some old fence boards (cuz the "rustic" look was what I was goin' for, and cuz I'm a recycling fanatic) for my husband's hunting buddies as Christmas gifts. They were a huge success, and other people started asking about them ... a lot! So I made some more signs for some people I knew.

Long story sort: I was having fun, they were delighted to have something truly unique, and I was getting paid. It seemed logical to turn my "hobby" into a business so I could keep doing what I truly love . . . ALL the time.

Who doesn't want to spend the whole day having fun?

Sure, starting a business is hard work, long hours and a giant leap of faith. Some would say that it's much harder than working a regular 8-5 "j-o-b", but it's SO worth it!

I love having the opportunity to share what I've created.
I can't wait to keep doing this!

HELLO and thanks for stoppin' by! This is my passion ... I spend hours out in my garage designing and creating unique and wonderful "stuff" out of salvaged fence wood and barn wood, new lumber, and many recycled and found items. In fact, most of the antlers, natural branches, moss and pine cones used in my creations have been gathered in the woods near our home in Northern California. Every item is unique. Essentially, my goal is to have fun making "art" that can be used and enjoyed. Welcome to my shop!
