Hootenanny is my new business adventure that I will be launching on the web in a few weeks. "All things creative" encompasses the variety of items I will be offering on my site.  I have handmade distressed picture frames in many sizes.  The small frames make great gifts and the large frames make a great statement in any room.  I also have a variety of art.  I have been painting for over 15 years and my style has changed continuously over the years.  I paint custom canvases, verse/quote boards, door decor, and birth announcements.  All of these items will be available for sale once the website is up and running so stay tuned.  

I put alot of thought into naming my business.  Those of you who know me well, know I have talked about store names for years.  I had a long list of names and with the help of my family narrowed it down.  I have always loved the word "hootenanny" has a fun ring to it.  Once I looked up the definition of the word I knew the name would be perfect for my business...chock full of hoot!

I love creating happy and unique things, so much so that I have decided to do it full art style could be described as funky with a vintage flair.  My creations are primarily inspired by my love for the South, fashion design, interior design, antiques, nature, and the handmade craft.  All pieces are handcrafted and one-of-a-kind.  Check out my Etsy shop link located in the column on the right or if you would like to discuss placing an order/pricing before the website is finished you can reach me at

I've been up to my eyeballs in paint samples this week but I think I have finally narrowed it down.  Check out some of the colors available for my distressed picture frames...I love them all!

One of the many new frame styles I've been working on...this style frame is "Geez Louise"

the style below is "smitten"

I'm head over heels in love with this vibrant room...I have alot of teal and avocado in my home...I gravitate towards this combination...I could paint so many distressed frames to fit this room!
