Sharon's Story


"My start in crafting began with scrap-booking when I had my daughter in 1998. After that I was introduced to card making. I started a business making and selling all occasion cards and small gifts made of paper at flea markets and craft shows. In the fall of 2016 I was asked to make a sign from wood…..I was immediately hooked.

The cards went to the wayside and Dandylion Vines was created. I have since taken over our two car garage with my tools and work space. My signs are all handmade from picking out the perfect piece of wood to the final coat of sealer. I create a lot of my designs and use a stencil to apply them to the wood using chalk paint. I like to make people laugh so the majority of my signs are humor based.


I love and welcome the challenge of custom orders and am working on several designs that can be personalized for gifts such as wedding, anniversary, first home and baby.

My most popular sign is the lake sign with a compass and latitude/longitude coordinates. "
