A New Look

They attract attention.
They serve as an introduction to your brand.
They help your clients recognize you in a crowd.
We set up at the City Flea this past weekend and I wanted to be sure we would stand out at an event that has so many wonderful things going on all at once. 

I have been playing with a bit of rebranding and a new sign was a perfect way to try out my new look.
This sign was ordered from Build a Sign, an online purveyor of all things messagy and brandish.
Super simple to create a look for your business using their online tool.
Just what I was looking for.

After I created my design I knew I would want business cards to keep the theme cohesive.
They do that too.
Very well I might add.

Awesomeness is definitely a Build a Sign trait.
This sign helped my space stand out in the crowd.
I love it so much that I am getting ready to place an order for this sign in a different colorway.
Subdued grey and black and white.

Thanks Build a Sign!
You definitely have a satisfied customer.
I am required to acknowledge that I did receive product from Build a Sign to review.
My opinions are my own however.
They did a great job, delivery was less than two weeks and I had tons of compliments on my new look.
Happy me.

Yours in getting the word out, P.

Hiding the Litter Box

I have been working with a young man who has purchased a condo in OTR, an historic neighborhood in Cincinnati currently undergoing a Renaissance.
His condo is a studio style and we needed a solution to hide the cat box as well as a place to sit and remove shoes when he comes home.

Enter an old trunk that was being stored in his mom's garage and has been in his family for years. 

My trusty jigsaw and a few pieces of molding changed this trunk into 
a piece usable for more than just storage.

To see the finished piece in place check out my Facebook page and 
see how brilliantly useful this trunk is now.
While you are there go ahead and "like" me if you really do.

I will be posting more on FB and a bit less here for the next little while. 
Lots going on here.
More on that soon.
I will also be in OTR myself this weekend for City Flea. Come say hi if you are in the Cincinnati area.
Beautiful day, beautiful setting, lots of fun and of course lots of junkin'!

Yours in usin' what ya got, P.
