Christmas Ornaments

I love these Christmas ornaments! I made them as a birthday gift for my mom and I have just posted them to my Etsy shop. I am going to make a couple other styles and post them soon.

New Earrings

I am just about to launch my latest earring line on Etsy so here is a sneak peak. I have been painting tons and tons of wooden shapes and then decopauging decorative paper on them. It is so fun to do! Here are some pictures of the works in progress and the completed product:

Zen Garden

My dad and I crafted this Zen Garden (wooden box and mini rake) for my friend's birthday. I love it so much I am thinking we should post some at my shop...

My very first blog entry...

I am so excited to finally join the world of blogging! My inspiration for starting a blog? I am the proud owner of a web shop at where I make wooden jewelry holders and wooden jewelry. My shop is titled Paisley Mill. I have so much fun making things for my shop that I just have to show everyone what I am up to.

I think this blog will be about pieces I am making and all the activities that go on in my web shop community.

I also love to show off my family and all the things we do.

I will show my creative process and inspirations through pictures.

I want to show everyone my world.

I want to offer some simple tutorials on the creative things I come up with. This seems like the perfect place to do so!

I will have new features as often as possible.

I really can't wait to put together some collections of all the beautiful pieces that my fellow "Etsians" offer. I think everyone should know the beauty of handmade!

I will have lots of fun because that is what I am good at!
