Not All Smiles for the Holidays

Not All Smiles for the Holidays

Sadly not everyone is able to enjoy the holidays. Celebrations can help illuminate the losses people suffer.  In an effort to help see these folks through, Graft-Jacquillard Funeral & Cremation Services is hosting a Christmas memorial service. It should be a delightful event that helps to aid healing. The studio was asked to produce a commemorative ornament for a take home gift for those attending. We were more than happy to oblige.

Children’s Financial Banks

Children's Financial Banks

After 20 years, our product is finally being commercially produced. Hooray! This began as a hand drawn item. Since then the studio has learned mounds about technology and software usage. So much so that we can offer this simple craft and teaching aid to anyone wanting to instruct about finances. There are three “buildings” manufactured out of paper; a bank, church, and store. Children can color each building. With help, they can cut and glue each bank to assemble them. After assembling, loved ones can teach the children how a certain percentage of every dollar they are given goes into

Custom Recipe Cards

Custom Recipe Cards

A mother of the bride wanted to bless her daughter with some help in the kitchen. She wanted to surprise her by gathering favorite recipes from all of the daughter’s loved ones and placing them inside the bowl of a brand new spiffy mixer!

The studio was pleased to supply them. We even created an image of the exact mixer that the bride received. Rumor has

Painted Rocking Chair Slat

Painted Rocking Chair Slat

Do you have an old rocking chair? A cleaver client came up with the idea of having the studio paint on an old slat that once was the back bone of a sentimental rocking chair. Because there was varnish on the slat, the studio had to pull out the old oil paints from way back when.  It was fun. We reminisced of the day when oils where all we ever touched. Now our client can reminisce about the days when they rocked their babies in this old chair.

We have a few left-over so if you would like to purchase one or some, please check them out in our store.

Making Business Supplies

Making Business Supplies

SMH has been busy creating necessary business supplies such as return address labels. What is cool is that we can be artistic and not stick to the “usual” 1.75″ x 0.5″ rectangle. With our creativity we can make a return address label be what ever we want it to, even a whimsical formation. Take a look at our new signature “button” also. We love placing these on the backside of our envelopes to “help” close them!

"By Wisdom a House is Built" Painting

Proverbs 24:3 says, “By wisdom a house is built and through understanding it is established.
