Richard & I are so happy to announce the launch of our Etsy store  & new venture 2Raymond Design Co! I posted 5 items for sale today – and navigated my way through the Etsy set up pretty well if I do say so myself! There are 4 custom sets of tumbled stone coasters & 1 fabulous chalkboard plate (that I almost couldn’t part with) – and more items coming this week!

We are currently working on 4 custom shadow box jewelry cases – hoping those will be finished and ready to list this week!! Other items in the works are the “Signs of Life” custom signs — which will showcase a special date and initials in a very very awesome & unique way. We will also be offering custom vinyl lettering (for wall decor) by Spring time! (Very excited about that one!)

Book Page Christmas Tree (project)


A couple weeks ago a few friends and I made some Christmas wreaths out of old book pages. They turned out so FABULOUS that it got me thinking … what else could I make out of old book pages?? The next project was a book page Christmas Tree – and it is equally FABULOUS!! Here’s what you need;

  • Paper mache cone (or a foam cone if you want to attached the pages with hot glue)
  • Staples and Stapler
  • Old book (I used a medium size book)
  • Scissors
  • Glue or hot glue

Roll the book pages into little cone shapes and starting at the bottom of your paper mache cone – staple the pages near the point. You will need to semi-layer as you go around the cone to make sure you have good coverage. Add rows up the paper mache cone until you reach the top. At or near the top you will need to cut your page cones a little shorter. The top is one small cone fit over the point of the paper mache cone. (You may need a dab of glue or hot glue here)

Real or Fake?


My family decorates an artificial tree -for many reason… mostly because its easier, cheaper and safer. I do miss the smell of a real tree though 🙂

What do you do?
