Pallet Daisy

Pallet Daisy

Not many of us have super tight knit families these days and even fewer of us can say that certain family members would be considered their besties. Truth be told I completely lucked out in this department. I am thankful to have a certain special bond with one cousin in particular. Not only did we have the opportunity to grow up together but as our lives progressed we have shared many similarities in our lives, hobbies & work. We both share a passion for woodworking and being in our shops - envisioning, creating and building. While I tend to be a little narrower minded in the build department, my cousin Carrie will take anything and turn it into an amazing piece. Not only can she kick butt in the shop with her custom furniture pieces (many of which are created using pallets and repurposing materials), she is also fearless at trying out new tools, materials and ideas with gusto! From intricate quilling to silverwork and everything in between – this girl never ceases to amaze me. And she does it all while raising a family and running a busy household. A one of a kind woman who still takes the time to mail out cards for special occasions - & yes, those are handmade as well. I think she may be trying to make the rest of us look bad come to think of it. If you have ever been in my home or have invited me in to help design yours, chances are you have seen many of her pieces included in my plans. Especially when it comes to her custom signs. No matter the size or insane concepts I throw her way she always delivers. Always. Although I’d like to keep her ridiculous talents secret and hoard her to myself, I’ve received numerous compliments on so many of her projects that I thought I should let go of my selfishness so you could enjoy her many wares as well. You can peruse her marvellous talents here – Pallet Daisy. But for the record, she is still mine for our daily morning coffee conversations. xo
