Welcome to Sawdust and Paint!
I'm Brittany Emery... a wife, a mother of 2, a coffee lover, home décor junkie and the owner here at Sawdust and Paint! I began crafting and decorating my own house and soon thereafter, my friends and family were asking to buy my creations! And that's when I realized my dream really could come true!
It all started as a dream. In 2017, I purchased my very first die cutter to just play around with but with also the idea in mind to make a little extra side money. At the time, I had a 1 1/2 year old in daycare where mostly my entire paycheck would pay for. So I made the purchase and dug in. Within 2 months, I always able to quit my full time job, become a stay at home mom with a little side gig and from there, I haven't looked back since.
I absolutely love what I do and I wouldn't change it for anything. We have changed ways in our business to allow ourselves to grow and I love the path we are taking. We started doing Paint Parties with wooden signs and décor in September of 2017 and hosted parties for 2 years before I became pregnant with my second child. I took a year off the business to focus on the baby, my health and an upcoming move. In May of 2021, we finally moved and I was ready to start my business back up! I of course didn't get rid of the wooden signs and décor as I will always have a love for hand-painted items but I also started making shirts again to bring the 'One Stop Shop' back to Sawdust and Paint. I am so excited to see what the future has to hold as Sawdust + Paint will be coming up on it's 5th birthday in the spring of 2022.
