It all started with a dream. Literally.

So, I'm always coming up with half-baked ideas for the "next greatest thing" I'd like to make and sell. I mean, I LOVE sharing what I've made with others, and if it can sustain being able to do more hobbies, that's great!

Then one night I had a dream I was selling bumper stickers at a local craft fair and everyone loved them. I had taken words of all these things that made my city unique and formed them into the letters of my city. I woke up and thought, "Well, gee, that's a good idea! I know how to do that."

The first thing I did was jump on the computer and get straight to work. By the end of the afternoon, I had recreated what I dreamed about. Not only that, I came up with a NEW idea: "Why don't I take all the cities here and make it into the shape of my state?" And that's how the concept was started.

My shop is named Thousand Word Designs, because a picture's worth a thousand words, but mine are MADE FROM a thousand words. I've had a lot of fun creating these portraits of each state, finding images that tell all the different stories of each state.

After my 50 States project, I'm eager to see what other concepts and designs I can come up with! Not bad, for something that came from a dream.

Frequently asked questions
Do you have my state available for sale?

I'm working daily on rolling out art for all 50 states, but that's quite a lot! If you don't see your state yet, shoot me a message and I'll be happy to get yours ready.

What if I want my state, but don't like any of the pictures?

If you like the concept but not the picture in the background, choose "custom" on checkout. I'll work with you to get a piece that fits you. :)
