It's beginning to look like Christmas around here! New tv stand is sharing the spotlight with the Christmas πŸŽ„ lights & old weathered shutters are taking the place of art work (since I don't have any hung yet πŸ˜‰). But really, I am loving the new tv stand so much John is making an end table in a similar style ❀️.....and maybe someday there will be a sofa in there πŸ˜‚...fingers crossed it arrives by Christmas!!

As I was oiling the cheese boards, I found this naturally shaped heart in the granite like I did last year. Anybody live in Bangor? #aandestoneworks

Christmas cookies are the greatest thing ever 😍 and they look so lovely displayed on slate!

Came home from Cape Cod to this wonderful little treat!! @aandestoneworks sent me 2 of their new slate hearts for recently helping them with an idea ❀️ Aren't they fabulously adorable?? Thank you Alana!!

@rolliesmaine donated this fun wreath to @camdennational banks annual Habitat for Humanity silent wreath auction. We were thrilled to help Rollie's out with some decorations! A Rollie's Maine ornament and a large slate Anchor Wall Hanging - perfect for an event at Camden National since their logo is an anchor! πŸ€“

Our slate ornaments are the perfect everyday decor - stick it on that Christmas tree and then hang it on a key rack the rest of the year! It's a fun little way to dress up your entry way πŸ πŸ”‘

We are so in love with these t-shirt we had done by Inner Sense! They are made in America and screen printed in Searsport, Maine! They are SO soft and comfy! The ink on these shirts is invisible to the touch after the first wash and I couldn't be happier with how they turned out! πŸ‘ (We did get extras and will have them available for sale in our open studio hours if anyone is interested! Or email me if you need one shipped to you!)

Our slate ornaments are the perfect everyday decor - stick it on that Christmas tree and then hang it on a key rack the rest of the year! It's a fun little way to dress up your entry way πŸ πŸ”‘

We got some great new ornaments in stock from A and E stoneworks! The pug one may be our favorite.

If there's one thing I've learned about being a small business owner during the holiday season it's this --> you decorate your house for Christmas before Thanksgiving or it Doesn't happen!!πŸ˜„ Seriously one year we just had a tree with lights 🀷 We are so grateful the holiday orders are already rolling in and picking up steam everyday but that means I need to decorate!! πŸŽ„ so excited to have a beautiful studio to decorate this year! ☺ swipe through to see some of what I did tonight! I love that our slate "Love is Patient" sign can fit in with Christmas decor! πŸŽ„

😍 I love these so much! It's been fun to watch others love on them too at the Fryeburg Fair! We highly underestimated how popular the slate napkin ring shaped like Maine would be.. We are probably going to run out and it's only day 2 🀷 oops!

I designed these napkins exclusively for A&E Stoneworks. I took a piece of their granite, scanned it, made it into a repeating pattern and then placed my original colorful Maine themed designs over the top of it - illustrated blueberries and photographed Maine autumn leaves and then I formatted the design and had them printed through the wondrous auspices of Spoonflower. Here's the best part, the purchase of these napkins supports FOUR Maine businesses!! 1. A&E Stoneworks 2. Patricia Shea Designs 3. Amphitrite Studio Clothing & Home - Katrina is the talented seamstress behind this project! 4. SoulShine Soap Company - the fabric was prewashed with Michelle's fabulous Lavender powdered laundry soap! Napkins are 100% organic cotton. Approximately 16" x 16" and comes in 3 designs: β€’ Granite β€’ Granite with Maine Blueberries β€’Granite with Autumn Leaves These will be available for the first time ever at the Fryeburg Fair Oct 1st - 8th!! (Available online in a couple weeks) Check out @AandEStoneworks for more info Thanks Alana for being so lovely to work with on this project!

I wasn't planning on making any more slate party platters today but this happened!
---> my sister texted me and said I should make a cookie plate for Santa.
---> I thought to myself "mmm there are so many cookie plates out there. I guess I can look on Pinterest and think of something I could do that's different" so I'm searching and searching and it's all "cookies for Santa. Carrots for reindeer" "Santa's cookies. I promise I've been good"
And then...
---> I thought I don't WANT to share my cookies with santa. I like cookies too much... ----> and so I give you "Cookies for Santa *please don't eat all of them... I REALLY like cookies!!!" πŸŽ„πŸŽ…
β€’
Who else needs to tell Santa to back off?! πŸ˜‰
β€’
These will be available first this weekend at Common Ground Fair. Launching online within a couple weeks!

New slate platters in the works! Those slate edges 😍 made with a slate cutter which looks like a giant paper cutter that schools have. So fun and satisfying to watch! β€’
πŸƒπŸ‚Gather & Give Thanks πŸ‚πŸƒWe have a couple of fun designs in the works, they will be available this weekend at the Common Ground Fair! πŸ‘

🍍Pineapple Cheeseboard. Could be a fruit platter. Or a plate for pineapple upside down cake πŸ˜πŸ™‹ yea!?

We very proudly make our products out of slate & granite that comes from our state. This slate however comes from Vermont and it's GORGEOUS!! 😍 It's a very awesome mix of purple and green slate! It isn't listed in our shop but if you'd like anything made out of it just send me a message on Etsy!

Lots of goodies headed off to @lupinehome - if you are ever in the Wolfeboro area of New Hampshire it's a must visit. So adorable! β€πŸ‚πŸŒ²

We are super excited to be a sponsor for the Megunticook Triathlon that is happening this weekend! We've made super cool awards for the top 3 male & top 3 female athletes in both the Sprint & Olympic distance! (And awards for fastest relay teams!) Still time to sign up if you are interested!

We had an awesome 3 day mini vaca!! Our only days off this summer (although we might get another one this Satruday!) πŸ‘ŠπŸ’ͺ we went to Old Orchard Beach for a little rest. Oh, and Evan raced his 3rd Ironman 70.3! πŸ˜› so fun, nice to clear our heads and take a little break. We are ready to tackle a new week and big projects starting tomorrow. Hope you had a great Monday!

The E of A&E is celebrating his 30th birthday today!! πŸ˜πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆ
β€’
I thought it would be fun to do 10 meet the artist/fun facts!
1. Evans full time job is running his families masonry business. He started working for his dad when he was 12! (Unfortunately he took over the business at 21 when his dad passed away)
2. He loves to workout and is racing his 3rd Ironman 70.3 this weekend! (1.2 mile swim. 56 mile bike. 13.1 mile run)
3. Favorite treat is Ice Cream! Preferably a big box of the cheap kind πŸ˜‚πŸ¦
4. He cuts all the products for A&E Stoneworks! Yes, HE does it - Not a laser or water jet! πŸ™Œ #supertalent
5. He owns more shoes than I do πŸ™ˆ seriously. The sneaker/work shoe collection is Out of Control.
6. People often will say that Evan just knows how to do everything. The truth is that he doesn't BUT he Does like to research. He will read everything and call everyone until he knows how to do something. Need to build a house? Studio? No prob! He figured it out!
7. He's my high school sweetheart. We started dating when I was 16 and he was 17 πŸ’‘
8. We both love to support Maine made companies as much as possible. The new shirt he's wearing in this picture is from @thinkgreene 😊
9. Favorite tv show - The Big Bang Theory
10. He was on competitive swim teams for 15 years and now swims with the Masters. He's a great swimmer but is pretty nervous to swim in the ocean for his 70.3 this weekend. Not being able to see the sharks/fish/whatever is down there freaks him out! Send him positive vibes for a successful swim! πŸ‘

This picture isn't from today, it's actually from a few months ago. But it was definitely a beautiful day then and looking back on it now it is just as beautiful. Tiny little sea bricks and the beach bring me a lot of happiness. 😊

So grateful that this is the life I get to live. I love working for myself and getting to spend weekends by the ocean in the sun! 🌞

Action shot of Ev polishing some new to us granite!! This is one of my faves, I love how dark it is and it comes out of Belfast! 😁 β€’
