With us beginning the year in a new home and having to start over, it gives us the opportunity to be much more mindful about the items we chose to purchase and bring into our home. We are choosing to make a lot more of our purchases locally and from small businesses and handcrafters. This blog is a great place for me to feature and introduce you to some wonderful SAHM artists and crafters.
The first business i'd like to feature is Life Expressions by Shawna, a home decor business that is run by my SIL.
Shawna is am a stay at home mother of 5 (youngest not pictured). She loves to create special, original signs and sayings for people. All of her signs can be personalized and customized. You pick the saying, color of board, color of lettering and the size that you would like the sign to be and she works her magic and creates something beautiful for you.
Shawna orders the lettering for each sign and then buys the wood, cuts it, sands it, paints it and applies the lettering by hand.
All of the signs are on real wood so they all have that uniqueness that wood grain and knots add.
You can check out Shawna's Facebook page, and by 'liking' it you are automatically entered to win a free sign! You can also look around at some of the items that have already been created, the different styles and the color options that are available. Shawna creates signs for every season, and occasion!
She is located in West Michigan, and takes custom orders for her signs. You can also find her set up at local craft shows, and you can even book your own "Make and take" party if you live in the area!
i love the different block sets. She has several seasonal themed block sets that really capture the season. She offers a variety of different styles, shapes and colors. Almost everything can be customized! You can view many different examples of her work here.
i also really love the family signs. She has some with the child's name and birthday, some with the family name and many that have wonderful quotes or sayings about family. There is a really a huge variety to choose from and the design possibilities are endless!
Shawna has generously offered one of my readers a family Birthday Sign with 50 shapes for names, hooks or ribbons to hang the names.
