I finally have some more wooden boxes made. I have a number of sizes this time.
These rustic wooden boxes are so universal. The options for using them are limitless! The boxes may be purchased plain or decorated. I have supplies in store right now for decorating your own boxes.
It's been awhile since I created some new designs for my 100% recycled cotton tote bags.
I went out on a limb and used different colours of heat transfer vinyl.

The month of January was a blur of a lot of unexpected happenings...which means that I was not in my woodworking shop making signs for the upcoming holidays and seasons.
I did manage to work in the shop for the first time last Saturday. I had an extra helper for two hours which made a world of a difference.
I'm pleased to say that I now have a bunch of Valentine's Day signs just in time for Valentine's Day.
I'm going to be giving away one of my art prints each week for the next while.
The first giveaway is my first art print which I designed a number of years ago. You can see my original post HERE.
I just realized that I haven't posted here about the Ladies' Night of Shopping in Roblin. Seven of us small shops in Roblin are taking part in this as you can see by the image above.
This is the perfect chance to shop small and shop local this Christmas! Get a few of your friends to go with you.
This private shopping event is now on Friday, December 9, 2016 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Tickets are $10 and all proceeds from the tickets will go to our local food bank. Tickets are available through all the participating shops.
I'm a little late with informing you of my sales for Black Friday & Cyber Monday...
I apologize for the delay in updating you all. My Christmas decor is for sale. I've added some new signs...changed up the snowmen a bit...I've been selling Christmas decor now for a couple of weeks.
That's why I feel so terrible that I haven't posted on here. I've been shocked by how much has so
Thank you so much to each one of you who came by on Festive Friday! I was completely blown away by the support I felt.
And the winners of the $20 gift cards are:
Today I'm going to share with you how I made a wooden fox.
My niece turned 8 this last weekend. I phoned her and our conversation went a little like this...
"What would you like for your birthday? I haven't gone shopping yet."
"I'd like a fox."
"A wooden fox?"
"Yes!! A wooden fox. Pink and white. The part that's usually white should be pink, and the part that's usually orange should be white."
"Okay...and what size were you thinking?"
Ashlyn from Market Made and myself are co-hosting a Christmas Sign Workshop. The details are shown in the poster above.
There are only 8 seats available per workshop, so you will need to book right away if you want to get in.
I had a custom order request on very short notice from our local Ford dealer, Roblin Ford. They were looking for a special retirement gift for a long term employee who was actually the former owner.
I agreed to take on the challenge. :)
Today I want to show you a few custom orders of late.
This large print was brought to me with the request to build a new wooden frame for it. This amazing print measured 24" x 37" which made this the largest wooden frame I've made to date. It's amazing how the print pops which a wide wooden frame around it.
I'm really excited to show you what I've been making lately. I've been wanting to make some wooden arrows for some time now but never had the chance.
Well, the wait is over now. I finally had time and went ahead and built some arrows.
I've made two different styles. As you can see above the colorful arrows are fairly large.

I know this is a little short notice, but I'm going to host a giveaway. I appreciate each of you as my customers, friends and family. If it wasn't for your continued support, I wouldn't be able to keep on with this little hobby which is slowly growing into more of a business.
We are just about to celebrate Thanksgiving Day here in Canada. I thought this would be a good time to express my appreciation to each of my customers by hosting a giveaway.
This post is slightly in advance but I thought I would share this to give you all a heads up on what I'm planning for this fall.
I have been going to the Roblin Craft Show since back in 2008. This will be my first year not going to this craft show. I have a lot of mixed feelings about not actually having a booth there. On one hand I'm relieved and the other I'm feeling like I'm missing out on
Are you looking for a fall centerpiece for your table, buffet, dresser or mantle? I finally got my supplies in for turning these ordinary, universal wooden boxes into some beautiful fall centerpieces.
Drop by to check these out. They are available in a few different sizes. You can still buy the box as a plain box if you prefer so that you can create your own centerpiece.
I haven't been keeping up with sharing pictures of some of my custom orders. So I thought I'd share some pictures with you today.
The picture above is a custom sign order for a local bed & breakfast.
