You're one of a kind...your home decor should be also!

block.paper.scissors. began in 2009 as a result from a broken patella (kneecap) and a hopeful career in medical transcription that was frustratingly going no where. After recovering from surgery and realizing that my career was not going as planned, a friend asked if I would be interested in trying my hand at making some photo blocks. I set up a meeting with the owner of the shop she worked for to talk about what they were wanting and set up my game plan. After many trials and errors, the first photo blocks were born. Family and friends loved them and began ordering to give to friends and handing out my information to anyone they thought would be interested. In 2011, I began experimenting with painting signs and to this day I am always experimenting with new ideas to help grow my business.

All of my items are made by me. It starts with lumber that I cut and sand myself. Every item is my own design that is painted on to each piece with acrylic paint and then sometimes distressed, sometimes not. It depends on what the piece "speaks" to me once it's painted. All signs are finished with a coat of furniture wax that helps protect the paint. Each piece is unique and one of a kind that is lovingly made one at a time.

Besides my Etsy shop, I also have a spot in a local store in Salado, Texas. The space gives me the chance to expand on my other passion, refinishing furniture. There is something special about taking something that is no longer loved and sitting on the side of the road for the trash truck and giving it a coat of paint and a new life in someone's home.
