Featured Foiled Friend: Steph (CostaCreations&Co)
I'd like you to meet our very first "featured foiled friend" from Costa Creations & Co. Please show your support for Steph! She is a Canadian, self-taught scroll saw artist, sign maker and mama of two!
Q - What do you do/make/sell? A - I make & sell handmade wooden signs, both painted & with 3D hand scrolled details. Often these signs are used as home décor, in baby nursery's, in businesses, or in man caves. The possibilities are endless!
Q - When did you start your business? A - I started this business in August 2019, after purchasing a Cricut Explore Air 2 as a late birthday present. I made my first wooden sign in October 2019 and knew that I had found my true passion. Q - What’s one creative thing/tool you can’t live without? A - Am I allowed more than 1?! 😂 I’d definitely say my Cricut (it’s how I design most of my signs), and my scroll saw. I never thought I’d own so many power tools, that I truly could call MINE, but out of all of them, my passion is with my scroll saw.
Q - What City are you located in? A - I’m located in Kitchener, ON, Canada!
Q - Anything else you’d like to share?
A - I am so passionate about helping others see potential in themselves. Whether it be in wood working, business, or anything else. For me personally, I went into woodworking with zero previous knowledge, watched a ton of content put out by the amazing scrolling community, and built this fire inside me that just needed to TRY it myself. I didn’t have to be amazing at it, but I had to at least TRY. And I’m so happy I did because I’ve built a business from it, one that brings me so much joy! I’ve also connected with such an amazing group of badass woodworking women who I consider my very good friends (even if it’s only virtual!), and sooo many others who are such an inspiration to me to keep going! I can honestly say I’m so proud of myself and how far I’ve come with something I didn’t know how to do a year ago, and I cannot wait to see where I am in 5 years with this!
Q - How can we connect with you and support your business?
