Cute stuff! I think the wood art wall hangings are my favorite. I especially like the little cars, the ladybugs, and the big flower. Also really like the metal frames. I think the prices are fair. I can't think of anything that would be a deterrent to buying this stuff. Jenny D., Colorado

Noel said...

I especially like the kid themed pieces and the picture frames. Though out of my price range my favorite is the abc board. However all of your other prices seem to be great deals. Really cute stuff.

Ooooooo! I LOVE the large tin and wood picture frame...it speaks to me...calling my name! Lovely!

I believe the prices are fair.

No deterrent.

Anjanette said...

I love the Oversized ABC Board. It's so sweet and original. I think the prices are reasonable for the items & time that must go into the creating, but I have to admit they would be the deterrent to keep me from ordering the more expensive priced items. For the under $50, it would not deter. Great, original products. Love it!

So Cute! I love the lavender snapdragon floral wall hanging, the dried lavender floral arrangement and the wall tins. I was wondering if you can customize the paint color on the tins to match different decor, that would be the only thing that would deter me is the non matching decor color.

The Robinson Bunch said...

my favorite product was, the wooden/metal american flag. it is so cute! very talented ladies. the prices seem pretty fair considering what it probably costs to the make the product and the time it takes (after all time is money.....i cant think of anything that would draw me away, except that it doesnt fall into something i can afford on a students salary (heck what does fall into a students salary, am i right?.....also the website was extremly user friendly. good luckon your business ladies! Tiffany R., Iowa

Ashley said...

I like the greenery/flower options, or the bowl of fruit. I like how unique your products are. Very creative! Everything you offer is so different.

The products were overpriced for me. I wouldn't pay $50 for a bowl of fruit, however cute it was. That's really the only turnoff for me.

Good luck on your business!

-Ashley R., Iowa

Rochelle said...

I love the greenery ball on ceramic base and the tin & wood picture frames. Your products are great and you prices are fair. I just have to save up for my favorites!

Rochelle P. Louisiana

Greta said...

I really like both the
Large Giraffe Wood Art and the Large Tin & Wood Cream Frame!

Cute stuff but some of the prices are a bit high for me - I guess that would be a deterrent. Otherwise, very cute and creative projects!

Greta C., Alabama

Adriane said...

Hello, The sisters are so talented and have a wonderful site! Most of what I decorate with is hand made. That is what I like. No two pieces are the same! My favorite is the
"Over-sized Fruit Trough!" It would look wonderful on a dining room table. The prices are pretty good. Please enter me in this fantastic drawing. Thanks,Cindi

Suzie Bean said...

I really liked the memory board, the car wood hanging and the butterfly hanging.
It seems fair priced and very creative.

I love the ABC board. It would look so cute in my little guy's room! I think that the prices are more than I would be willing to pay. That's the only thing that would keep me from buying. Love the products though!

I loved the dragon fly. I don't think the stuff is over priced, I'm just under paid. :)

Dari said...

1. I love the large tin and wood frame!

2. I think they are priced pretty average with crafts of that nature.

3. The only deterrent would be if the items weren't your style.

Dari P., UT

Ben, Rebecca, Natali, & Isaac said...

I love it all! But my favorite is the tin/wood frames! I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. The prices seem fair to me, especially for handmade crafts. The only deterrent for me is our graduate student budget!

I thought everything was too cute! I loved the giraffe wood art as I have a boy & a girl & they both Love giraffes. I think the prices are good---better than I have seen around here (MS).
Brittany, MS

Sweetpeas said...

The ladybugs are my favorite. I think the prices are fair, although at this time, out of my price range, so in that sense the price would deter me from buying, but to sell the items for less would be undervaluing the time & skill you put into each piece. So it's my problem, not yours LOL.

Christine said...

I liked it all, especially the dragonfly and butterfly stuff. The seahorse was cute, too.
I think it's a little overpriced, but stuff like that is just cheaper here in Idaho. It's probably just right for the Utah market.
The only deterrent for me is price, but if I really liked something, I would buy it anyway. :)

Christine M, Idaho

Christine said...

I liked the dragonfly and butterflies.
The price is a little high for me in Idaho compared to similar stuff here.
The price is the only thing that would stop me.

SandyLed said...

I like pretty much all of the products but my favorite is the distressed American Flag piece. I think the prices are very reasonable. Nice work girls!!

skcoe said...

I LOVE the ABC board and all of the tin frames.

Everything else is fairly priced, but the ABC board and oversized photo board are out of my price range and seem high. I'd find a way to make them myself.

I would buy anything anytime! NOTHING would be a deterrent to me.

skcoe said...

OOPS! Sheryl C., UT

Shannon said...

You have one of the best Etsy shops I have ever been too.
I love the Oversized ABC board!
If I purchased anything though it would probably be the airplane prints for my son's room. The prices for those are reasonable.

Gen said...

I love the yellow & green tin and wood picture frame. Everything is really nice, but most of it is way out of my budget...that would be the biggest deterrent for me.
Gen W. from OH

JenO said...

I like the Oversized ABC Board! I think the prices are fair--they seem comparable to what you would pay at a craft store, and those products aren't handmade like yours.
I can't think of anything that would deter me from buying a product if I knew it would fit in well with my decor, and I had the extra cash to spend! :)

Autumn said...

My favorite item was the oversized ABC board. I thought the prices on the wooden and metal items were good, but on the floral things, a bit high. My deterrent would be the price point and also fitting the style into my home (not that it is a bad style--it is all great).

Autumn S., Arizona

NIKKI said...

My favorite is the tiara. I am redoing my twins room right now and it's all princess! I think your prices are in line with others. I don't think anything would be a detterent!
Very cute stuff!!!

Beth&Cody said...

I love all the kid themed crafts, especially the giraffe wall hanging since my son has a safari animal themed room. The prices are fair but I would probably stay away from the high price items. Beautiful work and very creative. Beth from NYC.

Jessie R. said...

I absolutely adore the Over sized ABC Board and also the large giraffe! Thanks. Jessie R. Nebraska

Susan P. said...

I like the tin picture frames.

The prices are fair for most things, a bit overpriced for some.

The only deterrent might be that I could make it myself.

1. i like the tin picture frames and the boat, plane, and train wood art. so precious!! and would fit perfectly into my boy's room's theme.

2. it depends on the item. i think it's mostly fair prices, but some of the wood pieces (and especially the memory board--b/c i know those are pretty easy to make) seem quite pricey, but i'm on a tight budget.

3. i might not buy b/c of cost, but not just the item, but also the shipping costs. also, some of the pictures are cut off so you can't view the whole item.

Thanks! hope i was helpful!

Briawna said...

I love everything but I especially love the greenery ball in the ceramic vase and the tray with florals and candles. I think your prices are very fair (especially after I've seen you all at work and the time, thought, and love that go into each project). The only deterrent would be that my husband doesn't like to spend money!! :-)

CJW's folks said...

I like the frames!
Most are fairly priced, but some of the larger pieces seem disproportionaly priced higher.

M said...

I love all the items! My favorite is the tin and wood frames..beautiful!
I'm sure the prices are very fair for the time put into making these, but I think it would be too much for me to place something in my kids rooms for over 40 a peice.
That would be my only deterrent.

I really liked the ABC board. I think the price is a little high. Including a smaller size of the same thing for a lower price would do well.

I absolutely love your art work. You do a fantastic job on each piece. I really love the firecrackers. This stuff must take you hours to make and seems very reasonably priced. Nothing would be a deterrent to me buying your stuff.

lisalmg said...

I love the Seashell collage! I think your prices are very resonable. The only thing that my deter me a little is the shipping costs.

Tara said...

I love the oversize abc board but I must admit the prices are definitely out of my range! Plus I am from Canada so the shipping would be crazy.

Bebemiqui said...

I love the wall tins, the prices were fair for the most part. I have a hard time buying things online, so that would be my deterrent.

jenny said...

how nice every thing is thanks jenny9675309@yahoo.com

Doreen said...

1. What is your favorite product? The Dragonfly Wood Art ( I collect Dragonfly items, can't resist!!) :)
2. Do you feel the prices are bargains, fair, or over-priced? The prices are a bit over priced for me.
3. What, if anything, would be a deterrent to you buying our products? See above! :)

Uniquely Yours said...

Love the ABC block! Their prices are very fair. Nope. Thanks for hosting this giveaway.

Amanda W./ Mindy said...

I totally love the tin picture frames. I love it all since I'm not a crafty person. I think the prices are fair. No deterrents!

Jacob and Kelly said...

I really like the different woodart for a boys room(trains, cars, etc.) I also really liked the black tray with the fruit in it and several of the different flower arrangements. There are several things I really want but it is all out of my price range.
Kelly P., IA

Croft Family said...

You are very tallented. My favorite product is the Oversized ABC board. The prices seem over-priced however, for being hand made the prices are fair. The price is what would deter me from buying the products.

musson said...

My favorite is the oversized abc board.
A few products seem a little expensive but others seem reasonable.

Laura Lee M., Iowa

Haylee said...

Very cute stuff! I liked the oversized ABC board. I do though believe it is over-priced. I also love the wood car wall hanging and the train wood art for little boys rooms. Those are decently priced, in my opinion. Again, fun stuff!

blueviolet said...

I like the seashell blocks the most! I think most of the prices are fair. There are some which seem a little high but on average everything is in the fair range. I've never purchased from an Etsy shop before so that would be the thing that would make me hesitate.

I love the giraffe. He's my absolute favourite. Pricing seems fair to reasonable. It would be nice to see the pics in comparison to something for those of us who need more than just inches listed. How much is shipping? I also like the tin frames. Those are cute and extremely reasonable.

Jmons said...

I love the distressed american flag. I think most of the prices are reasonable. Very cute stuff to decorate childrens rooms. I may stop by one of the stores since I live in Utah.

Jessica M, Utah

Ted and Hilery said...

My favorite piece is the oversized ABC chart. I would LOVE that for our play room. Prices are a little steep for me but I am not saying they are not worth it. The only thing that would keep me from buying something would be the price. But I loved a lot of it and I could see buying it for a gift.

Hilery S. Iowa

pam1228 said...

I just love your tin frames!!! And the oversized ABC board is soooo very cute. I could see those in my granddaughter's room. I think some of the wooden items are a little high, but seeing as how everything is handmade you are probably right on target. The tin frames are a great price!

I agree that some of the wooden items seemed too pricey for my tastes. However, my favorite items were the tin and wood frames, which seemed reasonably priced.
