A Rustic Beginning
Hi friends! Thank you for stopping by my shop! Here you will find handmade wood pieces for your home, gifts for your loved ones, and maybe that little touch of whimsical décor for your wedding. Each piece can be personalized, and made with my passion for crafts.
My name is Vanessa. I am a stay at home mom to three beautiful children. I was a preschool teacher for ten years. After I had my third child, my husband and I decided that I should stay home to just be a mom. I was fortunate to be able to do that. Being a mom is a full time job! It’s enjoyable, but sometimes you forget YOU. I have always been into crafts and DIYs, but because the projects are time consuming, my hobby became dormant. Until one day, my husband brought home some wood and pallets. The wood along with some power tools lay in the garage for quite some time. I passed by them every day, but between school, playdates, PTA, doctor appointments, laundry, LIFE…, the wood and tools lay lifeless. The tugging became stronger and stronger. I knew my hands wanted to make something. One lazy Sunday, the wood and the tools were brought out of the garage. The hobby that was dormant was suddenly wide awake.
I made some pieces for my home, and became obsessed with trays! There were trays all over the house. So I decided to sell some pieces. With the overwhelming support and praise from friends and family, I gained my confidence to keep building, and share my craft. When a friend sent me a photo of her chalkboard tray that I had made, (she named it multi-purpose tray, because her family had fun using it one night for a game of tic tac toe, and the next evening, she used it as a cheese tray to serve her guests) I got a bit emotional. Knowing that you will use my creations to decorate, entertain, and welcome people in your home, it is with that same emotion and thought that I use when I build each piece. And so, it is with a grateful heart that I welcome you to A Rustic Heart.
