Sharing Stories

Over the years, I have received heartwarming messages from men, women, mothers, grandmothers, sisters, brothers, children, grandchildren, and friends all expressing the way in which one of my pieces has touched their lives, or allowed them to better connect with someone they hold dear.

These stories are an inspiration to me and I hope they inspire you too.

Below I am sharing stories of the way people give and share messages from the heart. My wish is that they touch your heart and perhaps offer artful ideas for celebrating life and the people we hold dear.

We would love to hear your stories too!

I have been married to my soulmate for over 40 years. I have been waking her up with “Good Morning Beautiful” for over 20 years.
Imagine my excitement when I found your coffee mug that says “Good Morning Beautiful” on the inner lip. I was so excited that I couldn’t buy it fast enough! It was a most wonderful surprise for my bride!! She uses it every chance she gets. Thank you so much!

Dear Sandra,
I am smiling EAR TO EAR for I’ve made my FIRST “Holiday” coffee mug purchase!
Your “Hocus Pocus I need more coffee to focus” IS JUST PERFECT for me AND for me to use, year round!! AND I know PLENTY of people who would just LOVE to have this mug as well! I will do my best to buy up as many as I can, and hopefully get them to my friends & family before the mugs are all gone!! I also look forward to keeping an eye out for & on your work!!
Well done!! :-D

i have been a fan of yours forever.  i want to share with you my sandra space in my art room.
when planning the backsplash over my sink area, i immediately thought of your tiles.  i had collected the
tiles for months so the answer was YES.  the part i think you would most enjoy about the project is the
“friend add on”.  whenever a special guest or friend visits for the first time, they pick one of your smaller tiles or embellisments to add
to the wall.



thank you sandra for your creativity, your newsletter, your books (love them), your baby line, and
for sharing your inspiration.  just thought it was time i shared my gratitude.
