You like?...revised


Please see revised info in red... after further discussion with the big cheese, we have decided to offer special pricing to get the ball rolling.
I am finally ready to show off my latest. Or, maybe I should say my husband's latest. Knowing that I wanted to collect "Js" he cut out this HUGE letter for me...for Christmas. This puppy is just shy of 3' high. I just barely got around to painting it. He also made a large cursive J and a lower case j.Those are still waiting to be painted.

I told him how cool it would be if we went into business together. Him, woodworking...and I, painting. That idea was way back in January. Surprisingly he thought it was a pretty swell notion. Here we are in March. I have good intentions...no one can argue with that.

Anyway, I wanted to post it here as a prototype to see if this is something you deem worthy to purchase. If so, we want to take the first 3 volunteers and create a letter for you at a discounted price. We will sell them for an introductory price of $49 - but...the first 3 volunteers will get their letter for half off (plus shipping if you don't live in our area). After our intro rate we will continue to sell them for $60-$70. We can paint this in any color you can imagine. You also have a distressed option...if that's your style. I am surprised I haven't distressed this "j" yet...I distress practically everything of mine.

All we ask is that you take a photo of it hanging on display in your home. That way we can start to build a portfolio of letters for our online shop.

Unfortunately we can't make duplicates for the prototype half off rate. So, the letter "J" is already taken...but any other letter is up for grabs at the discounted price. Remember...the first three people...no duplicate letters.

Well of course you'd have to use my letter! We'd want the J. But great idea and good luck!

I would LOVE this! If you don't have three people yet, I want the letter B.

Beth said...

Could I get it in the cursive shape?

Holly Doodle said...

Hey Beth...your cursive B will be made this week! Also, I should let everyone know that the letter H has been taken by my mom... she was just unable to post a comment today! ...she called me in desperation! :)

I have to say that I got the ORIGINAL ben and holly johnson letter for christmas a couple years back and I LOVE it!!

(Sad news: the air force lost it in the move...I was devastated.)

Anyway, I TOTALLY reccommend the letters! Super sturdy, quality work!
