This wedding sign was made for my sister and brother in law’s wedding in North Carolina to help direct guest to the wedding venue. My mother in law purchased the reclaimed barn wood from a local shop and the lighted arrow at a craft store. My father in law found the perfect size tree in his backyard to cut down to create the posts to support the signs. I created a stencil for the sign and sponged the paint onto the board. It was a team effort to pull this project off. I loved that the sign brought a smile to my sister and brother in law during the stressful time of planning a wedding. The signs were a great touch and set the tone for the country, mountain feel of the wedding theme.

Hello everyone! Let me tell you a little bit about myself and my company. I am Michele Bischof and I am 31. I married my best friend on May 15th, 2016 in Winterpark, Florida. My husband's name is Tim Bischof and he is also 31. We have known each other since middle school but did not start dating until 2012. He has an amazing job with ESPN where he travels to sporting events and produces audio for the audience watching from home. As for me, I was a manager of a successful salon called Great Clips where I also cut hair. I worked for Great Clips for 15 years. I loved my job, my coworkers, and my clients. I became a mommy in Novemeber 2016. My son Timmy is my pride and joy. He has beautiful big eyes and lips and always wears a smile. I love kissing all over his cute face! Once Timmy was born, my husband and I decided it was best for our family for me to leave my job and stay home with our son. It was a very difficult decision for me because I loved my job, but with the night and weekend requirements that come with the cosmetology career and a husband who travels a lot, staying home was the only option for us. Although I had to give up my career, I love being able to stay home with my son and watch him develop into this amazing little person. While enjoying staying home, I discovered a machine called Cricut that cuts everything, paper, vinyl, foam, leather, you name it and it probably cuts it! I decided to start with paper because it was a cheap material. My moto was "if I messed up it, it's a cheap loss." My first project was a bachelorette banner for my sister in law. Everyone loved it and encouraged me to start an Etsy business doing party decorations. I started my Etsy page in March 2017, with the same banner I made for my sister in law. After 2 days on the market, I got my first sale and a sale every week after that. I started receiving 5 star reviews on my Etsy page with very encouraging compliments from my customer that said they loved my banner, great quality, bride loved the banner, etc. The positive reviews gave me the motivation and confidence to fully invest into my Etsy business and create new banners for my shop. In gaining confidence in operating my Cricut machine, I love cutting other materials for new products like wooden signs and shirts. I am excited to see how far I can go with this business and the cool new creations I create with my Cricut. In the mean time, I am sticking with custom party decorations as my main product until I gain knowledge and confidence in quality in other projects. I created this blog to show case my work and to help inspire others who are starting a crafting business. I love crafting and running a business so I thought I would start a blog in hopes of motivating and inspiring other crafters. I love helping others with their craft projects or starting a craft business so please feel free to contact me with any questions. I am glad to help. I also love receiving feedback on my posts and projects. It helps me develop and grow, therefor I am open to any suggestions or feedback you may have.
