About

The not so story about notsomexicancanary

Hi everyone!

Our shop started not so long ago with not so many things..
We like to keep it a bit small since it is a one woman operation here, some times a one woman and small child operation. You will more than likely find us outside full of sawdust and dirt.

How the name came up?
It's pretty simple actually not so much of a story but I'll tell you anyways!
I was born in Texas, raised in Mexico on a family ranch. My grandma on my moms side is from the Canary Islands. Although I've never been there I've heard tons of stories about its greatness. To me it made sense to call our shop the Not so Mexican Canary trying to incorporate the roots of our past (that we know of) ... we might be Mexican, but no one ever seems to know we are until they hear us speak Spanish.
That's it guys. The whole story.. Not so much of one right?

We focus mainly on working with wood and canvas, with the occasional jewelry making with shed antlers from antlers found here in Texas as well as painted antler heads of you see us at a market.

This little adventure of mine started off with creating party decor for my sons 2nd birthday. A cowboy themed birthday. Yes of course he loves horses.. So he had a sign for his own "stable" and a sign for little bucksroos xing and a few more smaller ones. A few days later we started making some signs with some inspirational quotes for family members. Like dream big, dream the impossible.. Etc. Saw that they loved them which made me very very happy! So we wanted to share some with even more people and more homes, and of course opened up shop in hopes to create unique and inspiring pieces for your home.

One of the first quotes I wrote on a sign was " Dream the impossible, if your dreams don't scare you. . You're not dreaming big enough"
So our dream today is to create something You simply must have in your home decorating your walls or mantel and putting a smile on your face when you see it.

Additional policies and FAQs
FOR WOODEN SIGNS AND ARROWS

Signs are created from real wood. This means each piece will have knots and texture, and natural rustic character. Each piece is sanded down so that it is smooth to the touch, there is no guarantee that every edge and corner will be 100 % perfect. This is the beauty of creating something with natural wood!

Lettering is done by hand, no stencil used, with a brush and paint by me. (Brush strokes are to be expected) You can expect a consistent style although your piece might not be an exact replica of the piece pictured. Each sign is completely one of a kind, it's the beauty of purchasing a hand lettered, hand cut piece rather than a cookie cut exact replica.


JOURNALS

Every journal is purchased from Moleskine and then hand painted by me.
No two journals will be identical due to the fact that they are hand painted. Please understand there will be slight variations to the paintings, brush strokes are to be expected.


FOR ANTLER PIECE NECKLACES AND BEADED NECKLACES

All antlers are made from antlers that have been naturally shed. Each antler piece/tip will be slightly different due to the nature of the antler. Some antlers can be darker than others.

Each piece is handcrafted and completely one of a kind

All necklaces come packaged in a gift box (one box per necklace)

Necklace care: keep necklace hung to avoid from tangling. If tangling does occur carefully spread out the chain to see the problem area. Chain is thin so please be careful.
