Crafts and being crafty

If you didn’t know this already, we are frugal.  We can’t stand to pay a ton of money for things that aren’t worth it (in our opinion) or for things we could do or make ourselves.  That attitude has led to plenty of hits and some misses over the years.  occasionally, a project comes along that we cannot (or at least should not) try to do ourselves.  That is when we call in the big guns – Denny the contractor extraordinaire!  His expertise, skill set and craftsmanship make hiring him a no brainer.  But contractors and building materials are not cheap.  So, we put our heads together to think of ways to raise funds for some of the bigger (usually costlier) projects for the hall.  Aside from daydreaming about winning the lottery, the only thing we could come up with was to sell something.  And their has always been a plan to put up an actual building to house an art studio.  So why not start the studio now to raise funds!  Hence, our etsy shop Morton Hall Studio was launched!

We are still in the infancy stages of this venture but are optimistic about the future.  Basically we are creating things to sell that we love.  Weather it is reusing some interesting piece of scrap metal as a lamp base or sewing up something pretty – we are going to try to make and sell all sorts of things.

Here are a few of the items we currently have for sale:

More pillow covers and some craft supplies are available in our etsy store.  Additional handmade items will be added soon.  Thanks for reading.
