Note from shop owner Welcome to KPDreams. I want to thank everyone that has shopped at my store.
It has been a real pleasure creating for you and making those "special" custom signs on Etsy over the past 8 years. As much as I love to create, a number of things have changed in my life and I have decided to close KPDreams and devote my time to my jewelry line KPughDesigns.

About

Hand painted signs on wood and slate. Custom work available

I have loved crafting for years, keeping my hands busy and giving my items away for gifts. Then I picked up a piece of slate. I was in love. I painted signs for everyone. After that I painted more and more and more. I had stockpiles. My mother also paints, so she suggested I attend a craft show at a local school with her. I thought it was a wonderful idea. Get my products out there and spend the whole day with my mother. Now I am not sure the later was a good thing, but I sold several items and received wonderful feedback. So the journey began.

I booked more shows, mostly working by myself as my husband was still driving truck. I met new people (which is the bonus of the journey), networked, found more shows, and soon was doing over 30 a year. I was doing okay, but when my husband retired, I really started to span out and with his help we started to develop our online presence.

My husband Mike does all of the reclaiming of the slate; actually removing it from the roofs of barns and houses; as well as buying of the wood, and the cutting, cleaning,and priming as necessary. He is also my roadie and accompanies me to all my shows and I have affectionately given him the title of CEO, which stands for Carry Everything Out. It is a match made in heaven.

Now we spend our winters in Florida and our summers in Ohio. We have cut back on our show schedule and spend our time developing our online business. That is where you our customers come in. I love the interaction, discussing your ideas, and making that one of a kind or special order sign just for you. As you see, I have increased my quantities on most of my handmade items. This is due to the fact we hand make our products and essentially never run out.

I hope you will allow me the opportunity to make something nice for you, or perhaps find something in my shop that really makes you smile.

Oh, I almost forgot. I offer a lot more than just painted signs. My husband says I will paint on anything that sets still long enough. So browse my shop for magnets, garden markers, ornaments and a wide variety of handcrafted items items.

My vintage items are just that. They will generally show wear and tear unless noted otherwise.
