Lynette was very helpful in getting me exactly what I wanted. I described what I was looking for and she custom made it for me very quickly and it was perfect! Shipping was quick and it came in exactly as she had shown it to me. Great quality, great seller. Will definitely be back for more!
Stories of You and Me
I have always identified with myself as a creator. I am most definitely an introvert and art has always been my form of communication when trying to break out of my shell in any new environment. I opened my shop in August of 2010 with the intention of sharing my creativity in some way or another. I have had the chance to experiment with different ideas and finally came up with Stories of You and Me.
I have always had a passion for custom artwork when selling to customers. This allows me to bring so much meaning to something I create. Journaling is something I have always been into as long as I can remember, and when you are writing you are creating stories for you to read back on full of memories to relive, the same goes for pictures, paintings, and drawings. So when it comes to custom artwork, there is a story that goes with it. Wherever you display it in your life, you have something to say about it.
I currently use our piano room as my workspace. It's the go to spot for my children as well to find any art supplies needed and a space for them to have freedom creating without worrying about making a mess given our floor is concrete and covered in random paint splatters. I have a spot for everything but it can get messy, you just can't help it when you are in the zone of making something.
I came up with my sheet music idea without knowing it many years before Etsy came along. On a beach in the Philippines, I decided to write my best friends name in the sand and take a picture as a gift. That memory never went away and my process is very similar. I draw out my picture and then I photograph it, I use my favorite tools and print them using my favorite printing company BullockPro.
I believe the artsy scene will always be appealing. But being eclectic and unique will always be important. What makes my shop unique is my personal touch of heart. I care so much about meeting my customers needs and by doing that, my artwork will mean even more.
In the end it's all about inspiration and hard work. Thanks so much for visiting Stories of You and Me!
