I have worked retail and Black Friday too many years!  When I got out of working in retail and big box stores, I swore I would never ever shop on Black Friday.  I know it is hard to resist some really super sales but the crazy hours, the crowd frenzy and sold out of 'that' item makes me crazy, anxious and claustrophobic!

So this Black Friday I will sit here with you and clean my house for coming guests....

Whatever you do, ENJOY!!

Today, I am opening up to custom pieces ... here are some pictures of some possibilities:

Here are some ideas:
  • latitude and longitude of YOUR special place
  • specific names of people, places or things
  • palm trees or grasses
  • wood burning into a painted tree, painted fence, in the scene
  • saw tooth hanger, wire hanger, rope hanger
  • real sand and shells on the beach painting
Share your ideas and I will do my best... I will send you photos before I send it out to you for your approval.  However, once you have approved the completed work the sale is final unless destroyed in shipping.  If that is the case it while be put through the shipper.  

I work hard to do work that you will be happy with.  All work is one of a kind and different from the next.  Colors vary by camera and lightning, and on the materials used.  Wood signs, made recently and on going, are recycled woods and acrylic paint.

Whether they are real or not, I think MERMAIDS are magic...magical!  Mermaids represent so much to those of us that are in love with the beach... the ocean... sea life.... and The Little Mermaid!!

Well, Magic Monday is actually Mermaid Magic Monday!  If you make a purchase of any of my work with a 'mermaid', you will receive FREE gift wrapping included in your shipment.  I initially was going to wrap it all up for you, but if you are like me, I want to see it in person first!  So I will include the tissue paper, wrapping paper and ribbon in the shipment.

See you tomorrow!

We had a wonderful day Saturday at our resident craft fair.  We got to see some old friends and make new ones too!  We thank everyone for their patronage and everyone for stopping by.  Here are some of the tables that were set up, and for residents, perhaps if you ask nice, you may still be able to purchase from your neighbors.

ARE YOU READY? Counting down the sale...

10 DAYS TO GO......I am so excited to share this year's count down for the Holiday Shopping with you.  I am so thankful that you will be following along and even considering my creations as gifts.  I'll be over the moon when you purchase gifts from me!!

I love the holidays and Christmas is my very favorite time of the year.  When gift giving, I try to give something with meaning to the receiptant that holds a special message, a special meaning,  a special time, we've shared.  I want the person to see it and know I gave them a part of me, from the heart.  So now, I want you to have that same experience giving my gifts.  I do my very best to create something that not only am I pleased and proud of BUT that you will be pleased and proud to give.  So, if you are reading this:

If you make a purchase from me and when you receive it, you like it... no, you love it and must keep it for yourself and need to purchase something else from me... use the coupon code GIFT ME and I will take 20% off your next item!!

So what else is going on during our SPECIAL WEEK?

  1. MONDAY: should be MERMAID MAGIC MONDAY!  If you purchase something from the shop that is a MERMAID, I will include FREE GIFT WRAPPING in the shipment!  If you are like me, you'll want to see the purchase in real life, so  instead of actually wrapping, I will include tissue paper, wrapping paper and ribbon, in the shipment.  Off to a complete start!!
  2. TUESDAY: TOP TEN TUESDAY!  Purchase ANYTHING from my shop and get 10% off your total!  The more you spend, the more you save!
  3. WEDNESDAY:  WISH UPON A STARFISH WEDNESDAY!  On Wednesday, I am opening up up a conversation if you would like a CUSTOM PIECE done for the holidays... Do you want it for you?  Do you want it as a gift??  Do you want a certain LATITUDE and LONGITUDE? NAME?  INITIALS? TOWN? BEACH?  The possibilities are endless and I want YOU to decide and be thrilled with it...WATCH FOR MORE INFORMATION ON YOUR CUSTOM PIECE!
  5. BLACK FRIDAY!  I know the sales the big box stores have are hard to resist so if you are out shopping on Friday, when you get home, pull out your list, a glass of wine, and see what specials I run during certain hours.
  6. SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY!  Remember to shop your local small businesses and all the small businesses that you follow all year long!  If you purchase today from the comfort of your home, I will save you some gas money and offer FREE SHIPPING today, tomorrow and Monday!!
