Our little Etsy shop passed 1,000 sales! It's thrilling to be able to create pieces for couples to enjoy in their homes for many, many years. I honestly thought it would be stressful making guest books for weddings but I've been blessed to work with incredibly thoughtful and creative brides (and some grooms, mother-in-laws, and maid of honors).
Brides typically have an idea in mind for the design which makes them especially easy to work with. My job is to take their vision and make it a reality. Here are some custom pieces that we at Amanda G Designs have created so far this year.

This recent sign combines rustic and lace. It turned out great and I love all of the details.
Tara and I probably set a record for the longest Etsy conversations I've had with a customer. We narrowed her package down to three signs: a guest book, direction sign, and a ring-bearer sign. They complimented each other perfectly.
April and Brandon requested a Texas Star on their "guest book."
The Fayeds love their Boston Terrier and asked if I'd paint one on their "guest book." As a dog-lover myself, I thought it was an amazing idea and the sign turned out great!
This "wine glass stain" sign was a custom order for a vineyard wedding. It's also a popular new design available in the shop.
I've been wanting to paint a horse-themed sign for some time now and I finally was asked to paint a horseshoe for a UK couple who are getting married at a barn in Texas.
The "double state" design is another popular choice and can be customized in so many ways.
A sweet hibiscus flower is a lovely choice for a tropical destination wedding.
We named this design "two hearts become one."
Jerome's wife contacted me for a birthday guest book sign for her husband's 40th birthday. She said it was a hit at the party!
I was honored to paint a few signs for my friend Jarod's wedding to his beautiful wife, Amy. I ended up making a guest book, ring bearer sign, welcome sign and a couple of direction signs.
It makes my day when I check my messages and receive a picture from a couple of their sign hanging in their home. It's great to see the guest books complete with signatures.
The welcome sign.
Happily Ever After Starts Here direction sign. It fit in great at the barn.
I'm looking forward to painting many more custom designs! Please let me know if I can help you create the perfect guest book for your wedding at Amanda G Designs on Etsy.
