Dog-loving, sign-making Jersey girl.

Welcome! I’ve always loved quotes and cute signs, so my reason for creating these pieces were to blend some of my favorite sayings into designs that others would enjoy. In addition, you can find other fun signs inspired by my 12lb. Chiweenie and friends/family!

I truly enjoy the process of making these beautiful wood signs. Each piece is sanded, stained, and written by hand. No vinyl or stenciling is used. Since it is all natural wood, actual colors may vary, and you may find chips and markings, but I believe that just makes each item that much more unique.

Since each sign is made-to-order (and I am also a one-woman show), it will take about 10 business days for shipping/delivery.

Thanks again for visiting my shop!

    I am a Grad student & dog lover who loves spending time with friends and family while also making cute little signs on the side! This became a hobby and a way to relieve some stress, so I hope you find something that peaks your interest!

    This rescue pup is fierce. Found as a stray on the streets of Kentucky, I was lucky enough to adopt her through a local animal shelter here in New Jersey. She's the best sidekick a girl could have!

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

If your order is a gift, I will gladly include a card with a special message of your choice (at no extra cost)! Under 'Notes to Seller', please specify if you would like me to include a card, and your personalized message.

Care instructions

While the majority of my items are sealed with a protective, waterproof, satin finish, I HIGHLY recommend not leaving signs outside during harsh weather conditions such as rain, snow, etc. as it may ruin the finish over time. On the other hand, for some items, it does specify 'indoor use only', so please read item descriptions carefully.

Shipping Info

VERY IMPORTANT: All orders are MADE-TO-ORDER which means they will take between 10-14 business days to be processed, made, and shipped. I DO NOT offer expedited shipping. All items are sent via USPS 1-3 Day Priority Mail. This is NOT an expedited service. Once your order has been shipped, you should expect your order to arrive within 2-4 business days, unless USPS is experiencing delays. Please do not expect your order to be shipped before the 10-14 day timeframe.

Feedback and Ideas

Although at the current moment I do not take personalized orders, I am always looking for new ideas! If there is a quote that you would like to see in the future, please feel free to message me and I will certainly keep that in mind when creating new styles!
