Yes, it’s true…I have been MIA from the website for 3 1/2 years. And that’s just ridiculous! However, I have been super busy with life and it’s taken over with a vengeance. Complete garage makeover for a cute little shop, raising a teenager who is learning to drive, some health issues, a new puppy, and welcoming 2 grandchildren into the mix…well, you can imagine the lack of time I have had to keep my page updated! I feel bad, I truly do…I wish I were better at the “business” side of things…it’s just not my strong point. I’m learning…and I’m trying to keep up…..But, I have been painting and creating and learning new tricks of the trade and new ways of making art, including homemade artisan soaps and macrame’…yep, it’s making a comeback!! My life is very full and my plate is completely overloaded. I’m pretty sure that some of you can totally relate! Sooooooo….
My big news is that I am looking at a retail space to run The Old Cypress House from. I’m so excited, I can hardly stand it! If all goes as planned, I will be having my open house sometime in July. I see a very fun and exciting “Holiday Season” in the works, from pumpkins and hot cider to christmas trees and hot cocoa, with all sorts of good cheer and merriment, to boot!
My other news is that I have become an authorized retailer for General Finishes! Have you ever used this paint or stain before? Because, if not, you definitely need to…It’s so amazing…I LOVE IT and you will to! I’ve been painting everything in sight that I can find. So, if you’re looking for a good paint or stain, head on over to my shop. I’m still giving lessons on how to properly prepare, paint, and finish your piece of furniture. And now, you can learn using General Finishes paint products 🙂
I have lots of items in the shop now…furniture, soap, macrame, General Finishes paint products…along with taking orders for custom work and kitchen and/or bathroom cabinet jobs. Just give me a call, text, or email for more information or to stop by for a visit to my shop.
