New Line of crafts for business

I have not wrote here for a while. So I decided it was time to do so tonight. This past month I started a new line of distressed, shabby, cottage chic wall crosses. I buy the wood unfinished crosses from another source. I do not have a set up to do my own wood carvings. I have then started with the painting of either chalk paint or acrylic. It is easier to paint if the edges are sanded first. Then I design them in a different way. I took a few days of designing before I did each one. So far, I have done 4 and sold 1 that was custom made. I found a shop on Etsy that does great work on their cross wood cuts. So I will  most likely be using them in the future.
Here is my latest creation.

On my Etsy page you will find other crosses I have done and you can ask for customization for your own. I will do the best to make one the way you wish. 
I also have started to do the cottage/shabby look to frames, and other items that I find that would look good that way. So check out my Etsy Shop.

This is all for now. Till we meet again. Vickie
