In 2014, I got engaged and saw an idea on Pinterest to make chalkboard wine glasses as wedding favours. I’ve always loved crafting and like many brides I was excited to have some DIY touches at our wedding. After receiving such rave reviews from friends and family, I decided to create an Etsy shop called Chalkboard Chique!
Chalkboard Chique grew to become the top Canadian-based chalkboard shop on Etsy with products on display in hundreds of restaurant and retailers and thousands of homes across North America.
After 3 years in biz, I was able to quit my full time desk job and pursue my craft!
Unfortunately, when covid hit, my supply chain was significantly impacted. I had to pivot quickly and with that came the transition from Chalkboard Chique to Project Pine.
I could have never imagined a positive outcome, however I now get create and build whatever my heart desires… some of which I shared here, but other pieces are purely because I love the creativity and pride that comes with building something of my own!
I love to share DIY's and projects via social media (@projectpinedesigns) so that other women can feel empowered to do the same!
