Acorns

October 14, 2010

Geaugaroots has expanded!! (Slightly…) We now carry adorable glittery acorn ornaments for fall and winter decor. I harvested the acorns from the woods and created ornaments from them. I really like how they turned out! I think that they would look really cute tied in a bow on the outside of someone’s holiday gift. Or a few tied around a wine bottle. Then the gift receiver can hang them on their tree or decorate their house with them 🙂 It’s like an extra present with a present! (I’d be excited.)

Find them here.

Geaugaroots

September 28, 2010

I started an Etsy account about a month ago to sell jewelry holders. I first made myself one over a year ago, and have been wanting to sell them ever since. My shop is called geaugaroots… I grew up in Geauga county, and I think it’s had A LOT of influence on my style. The frames are vintage-inspired, natural, rustic, and a bit quirky. My favorite ones are the barnwood frames. I also have a lot of fun coming up with silly names for all of them, such as Sleepy Owl, Kaleidoscope, Funky Earth, and Apples to Apples (my boyfriend makes fun of me lol).

As of now, I’ve been buying frames from different places to use, but soon I hope to make frames from rough sawmill wood with the help of my dad. I’ve been in the process of branding geaugaroots… I’ve designed the logo, I had a stamp made at rubberstampchamp.com, and I’m in the process of creating handmade business cards. I even got Google Analytics for my Etsy page. We also have a blog in the works, so keep an eye out for more posts!!
