My Barn Finds
How did I get to this p0int in my life? I already had a busy life as a full-time hairstylist running my own salon. I have two grown boys and a husband that I love to spend time with. I had a full volunteer schedule. The only way I can really explain how this whole rugged little barn idea came about was that I was driving to Rexton to a decor consultation session and as usual my brain was in overdrive. I was on my way to my clients house but was making a stop at the "Richibuctio River Resort" (click on to bring to website) which they own and operate. You have to visit this website to appreciate the scope of beauty. If you know me, you know my brain rarely stops, and driving for 45 minutes all I could do was dream of the possibilities for my upcoming projects and the beauty of this resort. This is where the inspiration the "The Little Rugged Barn" name came from.
How Chi Goin' Mug
The original mug set is what I made for my Sister-in-law's birthday. It was February 2017 and I was trying to find something for her that was different. When you are from Miramichi the people are know for their friendliness. In the Miramichi dictionary, "How she going" is a term listed. The Miramichi appropriate response is "The very best". I thought it would be funny to play on the Miramichi nickname the "Chi" and use both together to create "How Chi Goin?" I put up a picture on my instagram and from there I had 10 orders and it has snowballed to where I am today.
I have been having a lot of fun making some custom socks for big announcement photos. Who doesn't love being surprised with good news!
Custom Wine Glass
Black and white buffalo check seemed to be a big hit this Christmas. These made the perfect gift to have on hand.
