This custom went out last week! Instead of the 3x4 size that I usually make, it reduced it down to 2x4 to fit their space! .If there is ever a certain size you need, I can ALWAYS customize it to that size!!.I also have completely finished my “Look Book” so all you can look through the pieces I’ve made when ordering! I also brought in swatches for all the different stain choices!.So now ordering a custom in person is so much easier..#smallbusiness #smallbusinessowner #rockfordil #rockfordillinois #makersgonnamake #findyourpassion

Happy Birthday to one of my BESTEST FRIENDS, KIRYN!!.We have laughed together, cried together, gotten fired together, hired again together and then fired again. We have had numerous lunches, breakfasts, and dinners together. We even have planned our life together if we ever end up single and old. .This woman deserves THE WORLD and more. She is extremely talented and EVERYTHING she does. It’s quite disgusting actually. She is STUNNING in everything she wears. And she has a complete heart of gold behind that RBF. Which is why I’m so obsessed with her. .She is a wedding planner and coordinator with @thecoppercowincevents and @thetwistedtulipevents so make sure to go with them a follow. .Also, she has two BEAUTIFUL kids and oh, a Belgium Draft Horse named Sancho...need I say more? I think not. .Love you babe.
