Christmas Open House

Thanks to everyone who attended our open house last night. It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed meeting and talking with everyone! For those of you who couldn't make it last night and to several ladies requesting to bring their friends back I have decided to open The Funky Shack Art Studio by appointment until Wed. Nov. 25th. Please call if you would like to come and shop at your convenience. Evenings are fine.

Tuesday between 11am & 3pm we will be open so feel free to stop by at that time. For all you moms who have kids home for the holidays feel free to bring them, we will have activities for them to do while you shop. Please call for directions or questions.

I look forward to seeing you!

Super Soft Florals

Thanks to Style Me Pretty and Style Circle I have been able to bring you some wonderful and inspiring images. What Abby Larson has created is just total genius. She has used her fabulous talent to create a website where wedding fanatics can come together and get inspired. I find myself getting lost for hours in the images and inspirations created through Style Circle. This inspiration board was created by a Style Circle memeber Crystal. She is one of my favorites and pushes creativity beyond traditional limits.

I will still continue to share with original handcrafted works and images from The Funky Shack. Also be on the look out for our new website. I will post the details soon!!!

I wanted to share our new venture with you. My husband and I are creating designs and crafting out of reclaimed wood. We have just started so our ideas and fininshed products may be a little primitive at the moment. These pictures are not our work, but I used this board to inspire and spark some new ideas. We have finished a few handcrafted tables and will share those pictures with you soon. I also created some rustic wood bud vase place card holders and ceterpieces. I loof forward to sharing these designs with you soon.

Look at these wonderfully elegant centerpieces. I am a fan of the smaller shorter centerpieces. Sometimes less is more and these pictures display just how beautiful small can be. They leave enough room on the table for place card holders and guest favors.

Shakerag Festival

It was a stormy soggy Saturday, but I was out there sitting under my tent. I was surprised how many festival goers were there walking around in the pouring rain. Sunday was a much nicer day. I was thrilled to actually meet some brides and mother's of the bride and share my pieces with them. These are just a few of the pictures. I will post more soon, though I didn't get as many as I wanted due to the weather. I am working on an inspiration board that is all about handcrafted weddings.

Orange and Green

These two colors compliment each other so well. The vibrant energetic orange looks so great with a nice calming green. The mini budvase place card holders also look great to add accents to cake and buffet tables. Your guests will also love them as favor (they make cute picture or business card holders). The mini budvase place card holders are on sale on my website.

Key to my Heart

I loved using my imagination when I created this board. What are the keys all about? Do they have a figurative meaning or do they represent some adventure the couple embarked on during their courtship?

I love the colors and would love to see mini budvase place card holders on the tables with orange, red and gold flowers.

When all of my friends were getting married it was the early 90's. Yes, that puts me somewhere in my 30's. I had to wear some really hideous dresses. The worst of which was a bright purple lace dress (sorry Tami, but it was awful). Thankfully fashion trends have changed for bridesmaids. I hope you enjoy this inspiration board with all of the dresses I wish I could have worn.

Shakerag Festival 191 McIntosh Trail
Peachtree City, Georgia


These are some of my favorite designs. They give you a the freedom to be creative. The swirls come without a base and can be used in fruit, small potted plants, cupcakes, and my favorite the mini pumpkins. They work great for place card holders as well as buffet markers. I can custom make these in different heights to accomodate your needs.

Light up my life

There are so many ways to light up your special day. These are some of my absolute faves. The vintage chandelier looks great in an outdoor setting as well as indoors. If you notice the bottom picture, the lights are wrapped around the rustic columns to give a woderful elegance. Simple tea lights are great for giving a soft romantic glow. So many choices!!
