Having a G-R-E-A-T give away!!

We set up our new booth yesterday....Oh, I'm sorry I'm gettin' ahead of myself. Here let the journey begin......

First of all Twin and I would like to THANK all of you for your words of encouragement. We think we have the best neighbors in blogland. We love all of you :o) This is the night of the Open House at our girlfriend's. We are loading up the car. What a beautiful day it was. Great day to start a business ;o) We did very well and everyone wants to come to our Open House at Fran's.




Better take two pictues just in case! If one twin doesn't like herself than ya have to hit the delete button!



Now all the rest of the pictures will be of our new Craft Booth. There's a town about 15 miles away and you can rent out a booth. The place is called Crafter's Village. We thought we would give it a try. The manager ordered something before we could even unpack the first box so we felt good about that.




They are having a special "Christmas Open House" today so we got in at the right time. The manager and owner told us they thought we would be very successful. They don't have anything like we are doing. The booth had nothing in it and we had to make our own selves. We go some wood at Menard's for 69 cents. Then we used contact paper. We would like to doll it up better but we didn't have a lot of time.





This is one of my favorite sayings. It has been a big hit. This one is on tile.




Isn't that umbrella so CUTE!! This one is a real bugger to make but worth it. This one is on canvas.





Love this one too. We thought we would put our stuff on tile and canvas to start out. We will be doing wall words too.





This one is really pretty when you get it in a large size and put it on the wall above your bed.



Just a sweet little pumpkin. We have ordered color vinyl and are just waiting for it to come in.



Oh, how true is this ladies? Lately we have been putting in LONG hours and all I want is a long bubble bath and of course my nightly glass of wine ;o)



And there you have it. We hope you enjoyed sharing a little part of our journey.


As for the give away. This is what is it.....We are givng away a wall word for your wall (not on canvas or tile) You may choose any color that we have and it can be any quote or something personalized.

We would love for you to let us know what quotes or favorite saying you enjoy so we can get some more ideas for our business.
We're doing coasters today and they are really fun. Putting Faith, Family, Friends and Future on them. Then some will be Dream, Imagine, Wish and Believe.
Good Luck to EVERYONE.
We will be working on a site to be able to purchase from us very soon. If you have something you want or any questions just email us. Thanks.
TWICE AS NICE LETTERING

I can't imagine this not working out for you. It's such a fun idea...and that simple little pumpkin is adorable!! Congrats on having the courage and drive to put this together!

Darlene said...

I want to be entered in your giveaway please....I love the words that say "Dance like no one is watching" and I've seen something that said "Believe and it will happen". I think both of those are great sayings.

Southerner said...

I love wall words! I don't know what I would want at the moment- and if I said it here I would change my mind 1000 times so I reserve the right to be a woman in all my undecisiveness (did I spell it right?) See, I would misspell something that would be on my wall!Y'all are two cuties! Love twins! My husband is actually a twin but his sister passed away when they were 10. I hope I have twin grandbabies!

MandieGirl said...

How exciting! Thank you for letting me know about your giveaway. I have been wanting a specific scripture on my daughter's wall for so long, but knew it would be a custom order.

I pray for much success for yall! The wall hangings are soooo adorable! I cannot wait to see more!

Ruby Red Slippers said...

I love sayings! I wish you much success!
I have them everywhere-I had one vinyl saying I was going to put in a bathroom with a bunch of different crosses...until my sister busted a gut and made sound effects...if you know what I mean...the saying was, "Love is spoken here"-She's right-NOT appropriate for a bathroom...LOL

Bo said...

Hiya TWINS...I'm sending you well wishes on your new venture! I can't imagine this idea not taking off...it is so NOW! ;-) Bo

Sandy Toes said...

Bobbi said...

Hi,
I would love to be entered into the giveaway! I love what you are doing! They are super nice. I'm always looking for something with inspirational words on them. Maybe something like, "Give God the Glory" or the Joy saying, "Jesus first, others second, and yourself last". I also like, "God bless America". I love your bathroom one too!

Lyndsay said...

I'd love to be entered too!

How about just "Simplify"

My all time favorite saying is..."A happier family is an earlier heaven." I don't know the author, but it is just wonderful!
Thanks for stopping by my little blog!

Sharon (sk) said...

You've done such a beautiful job! Congratulations and much luck to you both. :)

I like the word "Happiness" :)

Heather said...

Thanks for inviting me! I'd love to win ;) I like "remember who you are" and "families are forever" there's always "believe" it'd be cool to have one that said "(family name) est.(marriage year)"

Raysha said...

I'd love to be enterend into your giveaway. Some sayings I like are: Our Family is Raised on Love and Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take-but by the moments that take our breath away. Hope those help.

Monica S said...

Hi

How about
"I am my beloveds and my beloved is mine!
I like that
My favorite must be "always kiss me goodnight"... which is really important.

Monica (norway)

Mary Kate said...

Good luck with your new business!! I am loving all the wall art! I would love to be entered in the giveaway!! Thanks!

Buffie said...

Hi Twinkies! I'm so proud of y'all for going for it! It's very exciting!!!

I like the saying "If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy"! And for a mushy one how about "I love you twice as much as yesterday but only half as much as tomorrow"...? I made that one up, does it make sense? LOL!

Anyway, I think you girls are awesome for going for it and I KNOW it'll be a huge success!

Hey y'all changed your hair! It's cute!

Buffie :)

Adrienne said...

Me too! I would love to be entered in the giveaway! I saw a frame that said: tell momma that cowboys don't take baths, they just dust off. Love that! Best of luck, love your canvases!

Lesley said...

Interesting. I have been searching for almost a year for some decor that has a specific scripture and have been unable to find ANYTHING! I would have never thought of creating one. I would love to have the scripture, or a shorten version, of Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

linda said...

Congratulations on your new business venture...I wish you the best of luck.

Thank you for stopping by my site and letting me know about your giveaway. Yes, please please include me!

bj said...

Well, you two cute little things are just rolling right along with your great business. I knew you would do so good at it.
I have a spot over a mirror that I've been thinking of doing wall words ....
Can't wait to see more of your lettering...
love, bj

Elaine said...

You've been very busy! Thank you for stopping by my place amongst all of your work!

I have a saying that I just LOVE:

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."
~Dr. Suess

My husband used to say it to me before we were married when I was sad that we'd have to be apart.... It reminds me of him whenever I see it!

Bo said...

A big congratulations to you both...and much success in the future...what a neat idea! ;-) Bo
P.S. In a beauty shop I saw these words on a mirror:
"Who's the fairest of them all"

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

I wish you both the best of success with your new venture. And of course, I'd love to be in the giveaway.

JuJu and Family said...

I thought I left a comment on this post, but I must have on another. Thanks for letting me know about the giveaway. I'd of course love to have something that beautiful in my home. The bubble bath one would be right up my alley and I have a spot above my tub it would work well with. Ooohhh I hope I win. Take care.

Joy said...

LOTS OF LUCK WITH YOUR NEW BUSINESS ADVENTURE!!!
I think that the saying, "Every day is a holiday, every meal is a feast" would look great in a kitchen.
I love the motivation of, "Become who you were meant to be."
There are so many wonderful sayings to choose from!

Tami said...

I love your signs!

judicreations said...

Cute cute signs. Love them and congratulations on your success with their sales!
Juju from tuttiaposto.blogspot.com told me to come over and check out your signs especially the grandparent one because of my post today.
Come by and visit me.
Have a great and successful day!

Laurie - Decorating Fanatic said...

How exciting! (I stopped by earlier in the week but was having trouble commenting) It's looking really good! I want to do some wall words for my kiddo's rooms. I have been trying to sum up their personalities to best describe them. When I get it figured out, I will be placing my order!!! :) Best of luck!
