Can we talk about Christmas?

Can we talk about Christmas? I know SHUT UP ASHLEY but like I need too. I am a people-pleaser to my core and the best way I know how to make sure I do my part is to have open communication around then 2020 Holiday Season. As we enter the 2020 season, we are facing probably the most uncertainty I have ever faced in my nearly 6 years (and one of those years I had a baby in December) of business.

We are re-opening local pick up BUT

It's a big but guys... Like Sir Mixalot should be the soundtrack to this blog post.  We are re-opening local pick up but there are some major restrictions we have put in place.  1. It's curbside - your order will be labeled with your name and order number on the package.  2. After your order is complete we will contact you to set up a pick up time. 3. You have to pick up when you schedule your pick up! We get it, emergencies come up but I'm just going to be blunt here - we have packages sitting in our shop from November. One of the biggest problems we have had in the past with local pick up is...

Our Response to COVID-19

We are still operating during COVID19. Local pick up We have completely removed local pick up to keep our family as safe as possible. This includes contactless, curbside and "porch pick up".

This is something 100% out...

Home Made Taco Seasoning

"In this house we serve Tacos" Salsa 24:7   We love tacos. I mean, we REALLY love tacos. All Mexican food, really. We honeymooned in Texas and fell in love with the amazing taste of real, authentic tex-mex. We have eaten at the oldest American Mexican restaurant (San Antonio river walk is a place I can not recommend enough!)   It's safe to say, we're taco snobs. A store bought off the shelf taco kit is better then no tacos but nothing will beat home made tacos.   We usually have chicken or steak tacos but we do sometimes do ground beef. I marinate my chicken or steak for up to 12 hours. If I'm serving chicken or steak I...

Paint vs. Stain

Wood grain is like your finger print. It has texture and has the same pattern even if you remove a layer. So, even if we sand away the bumps in the wood, the wood grain will still be there. Ever burn your finger on a glue gun and rip some of your thumb off with it? Yep. Your finger print is still here. Stain The top of Jack's sign is stained. Stain looks like vegetable oil, depending on the colour of the tint in the stain. Stain penetrates the wood. It soaks down into the wood and brings out the different colours in the wood grain. Not only will you see the slight texture of the wood, but you will also...
