State of the Store!

Pin It

Ok, I know it's not an actual store but just wanted to give a quick shout out that the booth at The Brass Armadillo has been restocked with Paint and Brushes.  I have more product on order and am excited about some new paint coming during the next few months.  Keep your eyes peeled here, on my Facebook page (Twice Nice Furniture and Decor) and now, big gulp, on Instagram (Twice Nice Furniture)!

There are most of the new quarts in stock.  Voyage, a gorgeous new blue; Sackcloth, a beautiful neutral that I think I am going to be using a lot this year; Cannonball, the new black; Leather Boots, the name says it all and it makes such a great base color; Crushed Tea, a darker taupe, yum; and more of the colors ordered for us to play with this year!

I'll try to get this post updated with some of the colors here later today.  Right now I must run to play with the children home from school.  Because these are the days that pass so fast, and I love these kids!  Happy New Year!  Can't wait to see what you all have planned for 2015 and I can't wait to show you what I have planned!

Belated Christmas Wish & a Peek into 2015

Pin It
Merry Christmas friends (if any of you are still around)!  I hope you had a time of creating beautiful memories with those you love!

I would apologize for the long break in posts, but honestly it was just what I needed at the time.  Some of you may have jumped over to Facebook to find out what I was up to, and if you haven't you need to find the link in the sidebar and visit and like away!  I'm also learning to use Instagram with the help of my teenage 'assistants'.  Technology and I are determined to be friends at some point.  

Twice Nice Furniture had a marvelous 2014 with the annual Prairie Market Sale in October, quickly followed by Junk Stock two weeks later.  That was a busy, but rewarding month.  November and December were devoted to my family and friends.  A couple years ago my word of the year was "Balance" and I really do need to keep that one up on my bulletin board permanently.  It is easy to get lost in a lot of this as you try to build a business and/or brand.  Not that I'm aiming for the top of that ladder like some of the super successful  DIY Ladies out there...Salute!, just make my mark in my tiny little part of the world.  

Selling the APC paint line and teaching classes has been so very rewarding.  I now carry a line of brushes, Vintiquities, which are fabulous with Clay/Chalk/Mineral based paints.  The wax brushes are fabulous too!  My booth at the Brass Armadillo, Omaha continues to do well as a place for people to find my paints.   We continue to explore our options and growth will most likely be in baby steps, but you never know what new opportunities may present themselves.  

I hope to have more news and some photos of some finished products back up here again soon.  I promise it won't be 2 months before my next post.  I feel recharged and ready to get back into this world of Blogs and Facebook, and Instagram (heaven help me)!  Join me in all or any of these places, it should be a fun ride!

Enjoy your family, count your blessings, and dream big for the upcoming year!
