- About Us
Thank you very much for visiting my web site and considering my decoupaged switchplates for your home, office, or as a gift. Decoupage is the art of decorating an object by assembling and pasting paper onto it. It is derived from the French word decouper meaning to cut out.
I have been decoupaging for several years now, ever since my husband and I added onto our house and I did not like the plain ole’ switchplates the electrician was putting up. I bought several different styles – ceramic, wood, metal, even other artists’ decorated plates – but they did not quite suit my tastes.
So, I learned how to decoupage my own switchplates (from a very dear friend who went from decoupaging to boat building!) and it has taken on a creative and inspirational life of its own. From there, people were interested in buying them, friends and family were encouraging, and I started doing arts and craft shows. I found that I loved doing the shows because I have met some really lovely and delightful people and it is so much fun seeing what they select for their homes. I can just imagine the rooms they now decorate!
Over time, I have built up an extensive inventory of themes. I get many requests for custom themes and can now offer a large variety of different designs. It seems like every show I do or contact I make, I have a fresh, fun challenge of finding a new theme that someone requests (I am still looking for those helicopters).
Custom work and variations on any of the themes displayed are always welcome and encouraged. Or, if you are looking for a specific design or theme and do not see it here (I am always building my inventory on my site), please send me an email and let me know. I have many more designs and always love coming up with possibilities to match what you desire. These unique and handmade switchplates really can dress up your home!
