Simply Squared Designs offers a variety of custom built, distressed picture frames. Each frame is first imagined, then created. They are meticulously hand crafted and finished with a multi-step distressing process. We offer a variety of colors and finishing techniques. Donnie completed the Rocky Mountain Painting School where he learned a number of faux finishing and painting techniques. We apply these techniques to our products as well as refinishing furniture. Our customers are able to choose the size, color and finishing technique that they want. For more information or to place an order contact us at


It's been a while...sorry

Sorry we haven't posted in a while. Things have been a bit crazy trying to get ready for all of our spring shows. Canton was a local show we did and it was really good for us :) Thanks to everyone who stopped by! Our church (The Journey) also had a booth set up for us and all of the amazing artist in our church donated items to sell. All of the proceeds are going for the adoption!!! Thanks to all who took the time and donated their artwork for us and our baby (who we will meet one day :) We are blessed to have such a wonderful church community!
We are constantly trying to come up with not only new, but original ideas. Having an idea and actually getting it done are two different things! But, we will try to post some pics soon. We love to hear our customers say "these are so unique" it makes us feel like our efforts are worthwhile :) So we keep on truckin'
Some info on the adoption front...Things are SLOW when it comes to adoption. We began this process January of 2007. WOW!!! It took us 8 mos to complete our paper work and it has been in Kazakhstan since August of 2007. We thought we would be traveling around late spring or early summer. We are content to wait for God's timing. Kazakhstan is a very popular country right now especially with China changing rules and regulations, it's harder and harder to get in that program(China), so people are going to other countries. And...Kaz is a popular choice. That's good means many more children will be place in loving homes! Praise God! We will keep you all posted when we receive any news! We will probably do a separate blog for that (we will post the address.) A blog for when we travel, when we meet the child, etc...for those of you who want to follow the process.
