These & Those Designs

Chalkboard and Custom Sign Collections


Welcome!  My name is Casey and I am so glad you stopped by my little corner of the world.

If you would have asked me even five years ago if I would be making and selling handmade items I would have probably thought you did not know me at all.  But I am so thankful this little niche of homemade items keeps me busy.  As a former teacher turned stay at home mom when I am not chasing my toddler I enjoy making affordable items for you to make your home special or to give as that unique gift. 

This all started when I made some chalkboard trays for a baby shower which turned into some Mothers' Day gifts which turned into making items for people to give as gifts...and I am thankful the orders have kept coming.  As I got into the rhythm of making the trays I have added other items to my collection.  The round chalkboard tray and doorbell hangers were special collaborations on custom orders that made it permanently into my collection .  I loved being able to making an item that was helping a family in some particular way.  If you have an idea that you think can be a great chalkboard idea I would love to hear it! 

My custom signs keep me most busy but I enjoy the artistry of actually handpainting something special for someone.  In the age of silhouette machines I appreciate the beauty in the imperfect while striving to give you the very best.  From time to time I will have ready to sell signs available in my shop but most signs are done as custom orders. 

I am blessed with the amazing support of my husband, Philip, who lets me slip away after dinner to stain or paint and never complains to make his Fridays off his date time with our daughter, Leighton (1) so I can get some extra work time in. 

My goal in all of this is that I help others make their homes functional while allowing them to be creative and original as they entertain, host, and just live life. I want you to be able to give a great gift and not break the budget.  A win-win in my book!

Blessings to you!
