Sunday Afternoon: Meeting Lynne

Earlier today we got to meet Lynne. She had sent us a message on Facebook letting us know she would be in the area and so she would like to pick up a sign rather than having it mailed. Of course we welcomed the idea since we rarely get to meet anyone in person, but we had no idea how special it would be! Lynne is from Oregon! Can you believe that? We are in a little town in North Carolina that we hadn’t even heard of prior to moving here, and it just so happened she and her husband...

THISWEEK: Spring signs are here!

I am two weeks late, but the spring signs are finally here! We weren’t able to get all the signs out that we were hoping for, but considering the circumstances I guess it’s alright :) “Basil”, “Thyme”, “Sage” herb signs These are my favorite signs of the season! I took a little inspiration from the herbs growing in our own yard and put them into our rustic style. It was really fun to add the colorful acrylic component and overall I think that splash of green adds a lot to the signs.   “Bloom where you are planted” Watercolor/Acrylic painting...

THISWEEK: Motivation in Unexpected Places

When we were first starting our business, every month was scary. We had no idea if anyone would like our product and the idea of getting regular sales seemed foreign.

During that time it was all about doing ANYTHING that could help our business grow. One of our attempts at publicity resulted in an article titled “Selling on Etsy: What’s the worst that could happen? The Simply Pallets story”. It talked about...

ThisWeek: Looking Forward

15 days ago our daughter was born, and mentally I am still in disbelief. You would think being pregnant for nine months and going through 27 hours of un-medicated labor would be a hint that this is all real, but it honestly seems like someone dropped this beautiful girl into my life out of nowhere and gave me the honor of being her mom. I am not going to get into all of the details, but the labor was insane. It was pretty textbook for a first time mom in the sense of the pain and how long it lasted, but...

#THISWEEK: Feeling Scattered

It’s Friday AGAIN! And of course that means I almost forgot to write a post for the second week in a row. I should probably start doing these ahead of time but let me tell you- my mind is all over the place right now! We have been pretty busy the last two weeks, so I’ll let you in on what has been going on. First of all, Matt has been pretty much living on the tractor. If you haven’t heard we bought it a couple weeks ago in the hopes of building our own workshops and clearing/leveling some of...
