My dear lovelies, did you have a pleasant weekend? I do hope so.
I am soooooooooo super excited to announce that we’re LAUNCHING OUR NEW ETSY SHOP TODAY!
This little shop has been my brain child, and I’ve been slowly plugging away and adding new pieces! I’ve been getting down and dirty with my can ‘o stain, and have even been dabbling with a power tool or two!
If you’re wondering about the name ‘SyWoodInk’… the ‘Sy’ is actually the prefix to our last name. Like the ‘Mc’ to McDonald. And since our shop is primarily wooden items, we chose ‘Wood Ink’ because my shading technique is like a wood tattoo. And I just like how it sounds… SyWoodInk.
In an effort to build up some inventory for our grand opening, I created a couple little plaques (10”x14”) using my staining technique. The one on the left is my FAVE.
We also have these little gems for sale on the shop as well. The profile plaques I made for the girls as newborns are so sentimental and precious to me, and I hope the girls will cherish them some day as well! Tutorial to make your own here!
We’ve done several barnboard signs for friends, family, and a few clients… they’re a great gift because they’re so customizable and versatile! And you can totally make them easily using our wood distressing technique.
You regulars may have noticed a couple items in that top collage that you’re not familiar with here on Sawdust and Embryos. And that’s because IT’S a brand new thing I started making ALL BY MYSELF!
That’s right, I cut these state and country plaques from wood using a scroll saw and my own two hands. NO help from the hubby, start to finish!
Don’t worry, there will be a tutorial coming soon… because you can totally make these for yourself. No need to buy from us! (some salesperson I am, huh?!) So check back later this week for that!
All these items are things you can and should totally DIY for yourself! We’re not suggesting that you buy things from us that you can make on your own. But we know there are some that perhaps don’t have the tools or motivation to create… and that’s OKAY! That’s what our shop is for.
We hope you’ll head over to SyWoodInk and snoop around all the goods! I’m sooo proud of this little endeavor, as it’s something that I’m doing ALL ON MY OWN! Because I know you all have noticed how Nick’s mad skillz have been overshadowing my own as of late. Not that it’s a competition or anything. 🙂
Thanks for being excited with me! And sorry about all the exclamation points today (!!)
