11x14 Dowell Swoop
16x20 New Shape (Not sure what we will name this one)
We will be on the raod again soon headed to spring shows. Hope to see ya then!
Thanks to all of you who made this year a great success! From all of the amazing people who hosted home shows to all of our fabulous customers...it was all because of you and we are so very thankful!
We will be taking January and part of Feb off. This means, we can not accept anymore orders at this time...if we are already in touch with you-no worries, we will still create something for you!!!
We will let you know as soon as we're back and taking orders...if you have questions about anything, feel free to ask. I will still be checking email.
Merry Christmas to you all. This is such a wonderful time of year and I hope everyone can take time to reflect on the meaning of this season and enjoy time with your families!
This does not apply to home shows that fall between now and Christmas
Weekends 8:00am-10:00 or 11:00pm work on frames
Me...Monday-Friday 24 hours a day work the best job in the whole world, taking care of our little one and working on frames whenever she is entertained by the mud puddles in the driveway
So, to say the least, our lives are consumed by FRAMES right now...this time of the year is incredibly busy for us...all of this to say, if you have emailed or called and have not rec'd a response yet, don't give up, one of us will get to you!
We have lots of orders waiting to be filled, time frame for orders right now is 6-8 weeks, as much as we would love to get it done, it will probably not be completed before then.
We have 2 big shows left, one this week and one next week, then we can focus on the orders.
There are no more dates available for homeshows before Christmas. I am already booking for the spring, please let me know now if you are interested, dates fill up fast.
Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying this time of year :)
We will stop taking orders for Christmas November 15. Depending on how many orders are received, this date may be changed to an earlier date...our current turnaround time is 6-8 weeks.
Also, we are already booking for our spring shows, so if you are interested in booking a home show, go ahead and contact me for available dates.
Hope everyone is enjoying FALL, it's a wonderful time of the year....see you all soon!
We are back in action, have been for a while, just trying to sort through everything. We are headed out this evening to begin our non-stop, 11 week/weekends art show/home show journey...whew, we've never been so booked, but we're super excited!
Can't wait to see everyone :)
We have been telling customers 3-5 weeks for custom orders, but are going to have to change it to 5-6 weeks. I hate to do this, but we have so many orders waiting to be filled. If we told you 3-5 weeks, we will have it done in that time frame, the new timeline is for orders placed today and later.
What we've been doing...This past weekend I went to Franklin, TN for a show and Donnie went to Colombus, MS for a show there. Craziness, huh? We have Canton coming up and then we head to Hernando, MS for a show. After that, it's a vacation for us, then some down time...well not really, we'll be building that stock we keep attempting to do :)

This isn't a new design, just one that we haven't posted yet. It's a 5x7 opening "dowel" frame
Ho! Ho! Ho! A little something to get ya in the Christmas spirit ;)
Thanks for making Handworks a great show and we look forward to seeing you at Gingerbread House and Holly Days (Vicksburg) Dec 5 and 6.
For those who have placed orders and have told us that your not in a hurry to get the frames, you just need them before Christmas, don't worry, we have not forgotten about ya! We have a whole list of ya'll and PROMISE to have them to ya before Christmas!
Just a reminder about Christmas orders...please, please, please, get them in as soon as possible. We are so sorry, but we will not be able to accept any Christmas orders after November 23.
We will try our best to stick to that deadline, but we are receiving orders daily and will soon be "filled up" So, please do not delay, go ahead and order today! HA! I didn't mean to make a cheesy rhyme ;)
We are preparing for Handworks this weekend. The dates are November 21-22. Come by and see us.
This frame can be sold with or without the mat. It is a 14x16 opening with a fabric covered mat opening of 8x10 *photo by Allison Muirhead Photography*
Fabric covered bulletin board with ribbon
This is our booth at Celebration Village. It has already been a great show and is not over until Saturday evening!
16x20 bead board with trim
I found these great sisters that do some amazing stuff! Check them out at ETSY...http://www.NeedleinaScrapStack.etsy.com. I also have their blog listed under friends and favorites. These letters are an example of their work and will go in the new room as well. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the little birdy...so cute. They do all sorts of vintage arts and crafts. They are also gonna make me some shams to go with the bedding. I'm so excited! I am now addicted to etsy. We are thinking about creating a store through etsy, but simply just do not have the time right now. If we decide to do it, it will be after the first of the year when things slow down a bit (maybe :)). We will let ya know.

this is also an 8x10 opening with "double" whimsy trim
The ever popular bead board frame. This frame is a 16x20 opening with LOTS of detail. There is "blocky" trim around the opening, "slats" of bead board, and it's hard to see in the pic, but the outer trim is painted white to match the trim in the center.
A 5x7 multi opening "totally whimsy" frame
Sorry, this isn't the greatest picture, but we wanted to give you an idea of one of our new designs. We will be doing lots more of these, and not only in the multi's, so we will have some more pics of this style soon!
We have lots of Christmas orders coming in each day, and we still have plenty of upcoming shows left this year. So, there is some time left to get your orders in for Christmas. We will post a date s0on, as to when we will no longer be taking orders for Christmas.
One of our sweet customers from California used our frames as table toppers, numbering the tables for guests.
Amy, it was a pleasure to work with you! We wish you and Jeremy the very best!
Our latest news...we met some other frame vendors...with our name!!! They were so very nice and we enjoyed meeting and talking with them. We love meeting and getting to know other vendors (not just frame vendors!!!) Love all of the artists out there! So, we have decided to change our name...before, it was just a side job, now it is a rapidly growing business and we embrace this time to change our name and take on new ideas! We strive to give you truly unique frames...with our new name, you will see LOTS of new and original ideas! We have a name in mind, but will not share it until we have decided for sure :) STAY TUNED!!!
Will post some more pics soon.
