Personalized Chalk Board

Becky said: “Very cool. The idea of personalized chalkboards is not only ingenious, but rustic and charming too. It’s a playful gift given at a baby shower, a stylish way to exhibit specials at a restaurant and an original, custom piece of art in your own home. I think the price is right for what it is. P.S.-My wedding is at a ranch in October, is it possible to have one made by then? “

Handmade of reclaimed wood by artist James van Kriedt, this Personalized Chalk Board is hand-lettered with the family name scrolled across the top, first names below in bold, beautiful lettering and your hometown in script. Would this board make a great wedding or housewarming gift for someone you know? Could you see this in your own home? We want to know what you think!

This star of this flashy flask takes the phrase “bottoms up” literally! You loved that the circus inspired illustration, the stainless steel container and that this product is made in the USA.

If you love this colorful contortionist, you might also enjoy designer Kaycee BinnsWingman and Holy Water flasks.

Custom Fingerprint Necklace

Brianna said: “I love this idea and would not hesitate to get it! it is so unique and special! Something I would keep forever.”

Nicole said: “This is such a beautiful, romantic concept. Can it get any more uncommon? I think not:)”

This special necklace takes personalization to a whole new level! Artist Jackie Kaufman gives you the chance to take part in her artistic process by sending you a special kit which allows you to make a mold of your unique fingerprint. After you send Jackie your mold, she creates this sterling silver heart pendant. You loved that this custom pendant is as one-of-a-kind as you can get!
