I'm so excited to say we now have slate letters to go with our numbers! πŸ™Œ This is going to unleash some great possibilities for signs and house decor! (And takes care of those weird house numbers like 82B!)
β€’
I'm totally going to nail "home" directly into our cedar shingles! I have a new obsession with front door areas and I've been working on ours 😊
β€’
We are working on some signs for our art shows that are coming oh-so-soon! First one is just over 2 weeks away! Arts in the Park in Belfast

The water is flying and lazy susans are coming to life πŸ‘πŸ» it was iffy about whether we would have time to make these for show season this year (it's only 2 1/2 weeks away!) But it really wasn't an option not to because everyone asks for them! So we can't disappoint the people πŸ˜ƒ πŸ’™

Is anyone else obsessed with feeding the birds!? 🐦 I love them. If only I could get rid of the darn squirrel and chipmunk that like to drain the feeders 😐
β€’
(We made these little birdies as samples for @bellfarmshops, by next week they will have some available! They also have an awesome collection of everything you need to make your bird friends happy!)

How is it already Friday again!? Days are really just flying by for me. It's crazy!
β€’
Here's 100 Maine Cheeseboards we delivered this week! We had a very busy week filled with deliveries, Yeti cup engravings, etsy orders and more which made our week fun and fast
β€’
Hope you have a great weekend!

I love the sun that comes in my office window with all my little treasures! πŸ€“πŸŒ²β˜‰

Last night was nuts, SO many people! We got to see so many of the friends we made during the @belfastartmarket last summer - it was fun to hear stories of how they have used their stone products and that they finally got their house numbers put up! Ect. 😊
We also saw lots of friends we've made through @bay_pro_maine πŸ™Œ β€’
I love this coastal Maine town πŸ’— it's just the Best! 🌲

Thanks for voting us Best New Business in Waldo County! πŸ™Œ Even tho we've been in business for 5 1/2 years, it's only been 1 year since Alana quit her job to do A&E Stoneworks full time. Over the last year we've done a lot of cool things, we've grown a ton and we've gotten way more involved in our community - so we will gladly accept this title 😊
β€’
Join us tonight at the Best of the Best Gala to win these items! πŸŽ‰ 5:30-8PM at the Crosby Center in Belfast, Maine!

Let's have a patio party with grapes and cheese! πŸ™„πŸ‡πŸ§€ so perfect for this weather!

It must be board game season! Is there such a thing? 😜 quite a few of our slate checkerboards are heading out across the country this week

πŸŒ²πŸ• What kind of camping do you prefer? - tent or trailer!?
β€’
The red bag and awesome patches are from @thinkgreene 😍 I don't think I've ever had patches before but I put the fiddlehead one on my bag and now I want to put them everywhere!
β€’
Also, I really want to go camping! In a tent! Because I haven't in at least 10 years..not sure I can even call myself a Mainer anymore πŸ™ˆ

Spring is in the air 🌸🌼 it's the greatest! I spent most of the day working indoors but I did get outside to work on my little flower garden for a few minutes. It made it through the winter and things are starting to grow! It's only been uncovered from snow for less than 2 weeks (The snow just wouldn't leave the yard!πŸ™ˆ)
β€’
This is the gorgeous birch tree on the edge of my little garden. It's so pretty. Definitely my favorite type of tree!

Door prize for our networking event tomorrow!! πŸ‘πŸ» Custom Yeti with the new BAY PRO logo! Join us at the Belfast Chamber at 5:30PM for a fun night! (Tuesday Night)

Yeti made & donated by @aandestoneworks

Starting a new venture and we gifted our wonderful realtor some coasters! Pretty much a guarantee you will end up with rocks if you work with us 😊🀣 (No we are not opening a brick and mortar store!) β€’
If you are in the Belfast, Maine area we highly recommend Courtney Keene at Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate! πŸ‘πŸ» It's so great when you find the right people to be "in your back pocket" and Courtney is our girl for all future real estate things!

Is it weird that I really like bricks? I think they are so gorgeous 🀷
β€’
If you didn't know, we got into this whole slate and granite housewares business that is @aandestoneworks because Evan is a stone mason! So I guess that's why I like bricks? They are ALWAYS around 🀣 He's been building stone and brick chimneys, fire places, walkways and things since he was 12! Well, he started out as a mason tender for his dad and slowly learned everything he could. Unfortunately his dad passed away about 8 years ago. Evan took over the masonry business at that point. We are so grateful for all the things his dad taught him, it is such a beautiful trade to know πŸ’— These days we balance both businesses but it's pretty much a guarantee we are always playing with rocks and bricks 😊

New Hampshire and the Old Man of the Mountain are more popular as Granite Cheeseboards (instead of slate) do you know why?! 😊 ....because New Hampshire is also called The Granite State! πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ»

Can we talk about the way Pinterest makes that cool collage at the top of business profiles?! 😍 I'm in love!
β€’
I'll admit I've highly neglected Pinterest because I have a personal account I use A LOT. BUT I revamped A&E Stoneworks' Pinterest and I'm ready to be inspired all over again over there!
β€’
Click on the link in my bio - and then click Pinterest if you want to see what's happening over there! Rocks, Cheese and Maine treasures to name a few 😊

When we first started A&E Stoneworks we were using slate we had left over from a masonry job. The first 30 or so cheeseboards we sold were made of this beautiful green slate from Vermont. After we ran out of those left overs we switched to the black Maine slate we still use today! The green slate comes back on special request - these Vermont Cheeseboards and ornaments will be headed out to a new retail partner soon!

Texas Cheeseboards! Do you know what city the πŸ’™ is over? 🌎
