About

I have been interested in the arts for longer than I can remember. I can’t dance, I can’t sing….so that just left creating something tangible and aesthetically pleasing. Having a bachelor’s in graphic communications, I’ve worked as a graphic designer or creative director for the past 10+ years.

I have now decided to branch out and embrace 3D design…something in college I completely didn’t understand and hated going to the class! However, rather than covering chairs in crayons or fabricating statues out of cardboard, I have chosen to create items that can be used and treasured for years to come. Each tile, coaster or piece that you see in the gallery or on my etsy store has been customized, and can even feature your own personal images if you so desire. So look around, get some ideas and let me take them to the next level by actually making them for you!

You can purchase anything that you see on this page and more via my Shaded Lines Etsy shop! If you aren’t comfortable using Etsy, I also have paypal and create a custom order for you 🙂 Just let me know your ideas and I can’t wait to make your creation come to life!

  1. Hey! I would love it if you would follow my bog. I like your creativity, and am glad you found an outlet. 🙂

  2. Congrats on your first sell in your Etsy store – I am hoping to open a store at some point as well – and I can imagine that first sale is the BEST feeling! 🙂
    Just started to follow – but looking forward to going back and looking at some of your stuff!! Best of luck in your store!

    • It is the BEST feeling! You worry, at first, that no one will buy your stuff (there is soooo much good, creative things on that site!) But it all turned out good in the end 🙂 Good luck with your store!! Your so creative that I am sure it will be a success!

  3. Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting on my settee makeover. I wanted to invite you to join my new linky party, Twirl & Take a Bow. It’s every Tuesday. Any of your home related crafts, tutorials, DIYs, decorating tips, etc would be a great addition! Hope you can stop by!
    Thanks,
    Leslie

  4. I love your ideas Shaded Line! I can’t wait to see more and I’m definitely interested in a tailgating football tray. Will you be customizing any for specific teams?

    • Yes, I have to start with FSU first or my husband would refuse to help me build them ….lol! Once we get the first tray built then it’s just making the others…and then customizing for teams 🙂 He is supposed to be working on the tray template today….so hopefully I will have something to post in a week or so!

    Love your Logo and welcome to the large herd of talent on Etsy! Patience and creativity, plus a dash of marketing can be very helpful, on this quest. If you have any questions, I may not have the answer, but 2 heads are better than 1! I have 2 blogs on WP, a very new one is Paint-By Camera, where you liked a post. My more established blog is Cardtales By The Lioness, which is also the name of my Etsy Shoppe. Please come for a visit!
