Announcement   I am in the process of moving all my handpainted signs to my new Shop Painted Lady signs, www.etsy.com/shop/PaintedLadySigns . As of right now I am still selling my signs from this shop but as soon as the move is completed all signs will be sold from my new shop only.

If visiting that shop, please use coupon code " GRANDOPENING25OFF " to receive 25% off your entire purchase! Coupon code good until March 31, 2017.

I love doing custom orders but It is nearly impossible for me to have a special request item that I can produce and ship at the last minute. If you want a custom order please shop at minimum of 2 - 4 weeks before you need it (that includes shipping time). The longer the better!

If you are buying something as a gift I can ship directly to the recipient. Just let me know in the notes to seller section where you would like your item to go. I can also include a little enclosure card saying who the gift is from. Please let me know if it is a gift item and I can make sure there are no prices included in the package.

This was simply the best experience I could have ever asked for. Erica custom created a crown to match a very complex theme for my son's birthday. She designed the item, sent pictures for approval, created it and shipped it in absolute record time. She did all of this despite the fact that I told her repeatedly I was not in a hurry to receive the item. The item is ADORABLE and incredibly well-made. Her communication throughout the whole ordering and shipping process was over and beyond what is expected. Simply put, she does beautiful work and is a reliable businesswoman! Thank you, Erica, for such a wonderful experience. You are truly talented!

About

This is me in a nutshell.. help how did I get in this nutshell?!

I went to school for massage therapy but since graduating I've had 4 more children (6 total) so it's been hard to find the time to get my license :) In the meantime I fill my days with caring for my children while trying to run my business from home!

Since May 2013, May - October, I had a booth at the Anacortes Farmers Market (North West Washington State/San Juan Islands) This past summer, 2016, I had to take off due to adding a new baby to the family (November 3, 2015) as well as separating with my husband. Having enough stock on hand was very difficult with a newborn and 5 other children to care for on my own. When the children are a bit older I plan on going back. I love working with my hands. When I finish something it's such a sense of accomplishment. I also loved working the farmers market, being a part of my local economy! It's great to be able to meet and see the people who buy and use my items.

I started my Etsy shop in December of 2011 but didn't actively post until after I started at the Farmer's Market in the Spring of 2013. Before that I just made stuff for friends and family and my own children. I learned to sew in 7th grade and I taught myself embroidery by reading various books. Either buying or checking out from the library. The library is a great resource if you want to learn! My favorite book and the one that really inspired me is Stitched in Time by Alicia Paulson. If you haven't checked her out please do! She makes the most beautiful things!

I am not an expert by any means. I just love making things. If you have any questions about anything, want to know where I got my inspiration or supplies, just ask and I will do my best to turn you in the right direction. There's so many lovely things and ideas out there, no one person should have a monopoly.
