Chalk & Pine
Hi, I’m Stephanie, but my friends all call me Steph! Chalk and Pine grew out of a passion that started from an early age. In school, I was always “the artsy kid,” taking every opportunity to take an extra art class, design the cover of our yearbook, or doodle on any surface I could find. Life took me in a different direction though. After a successful career of 18 years in three different countries with a well-known brand, I knew something was missing; creativity! I feel most fulfilled in my work when I am being creative. So after helping a few friends and family members with their weddings and special events, and then designing my own wedding, I found my calling. I took a leap of faith, and Chalk and Pine was born.
What else you should know about me… I recently married the love of my life, Jimmy. We are new parents to a beautiful little four legged fur baby, Mable. We can’t wait to have real babies! I love to travel. I love anything pickled. Four years ago, I lost 75 lbs, and from that grew my love of health and fitness. I am a beauty product junkie. My friends laugh and tell me that I write/text like I talk, very excited and I always finish with an exclamation mark! I’m fiercely loyal, and have had the same circle of girlfriends since childhood. I love cleanliness. I won my husband over on our first date with a very awkward tick I can do.
I’m basically a baby, and will fall asleep if you put me in a car on a warm day, or in front of the TV with a blanket. Eyelashes, sour gummy candy, the smell of paint, my husband’s big arms around me, peonies, fake grape-flavored things and antique stores are just a few of my favorite things. However, nothing beats the feeling of making something beautiful with your own two hands for someone on one of the happiest days of their life, whether it be their wedding, bridal shower, baby shower, birthday party, or the grand-opening of their new business. BEST FEELING EVER!
I believe that your special event should be a beautiful reflection of you. Details are very important. That’s where I come in! Let me create a custom, one of a kind sign for you. Chalkboards, hand painted wood signs, mirrors, glass or acrylic framed pieces, you name it, I will create it.
Because your pieces are custom made and as unique as you, so is pricing. Most work is based on square footage, with script alone. However, this can change depending on the amount of detail and time it takes to create your custom piece. I can work with you to create inspiration, cast vision, make suggestions on sizes and types of materials, and even provide sketches if needed.
Choose from a large inventory of rental chalkboards and signs. You may also purchase to keep. Easels, stands and delivery within the Seattle area are all available.
