My name is Christina and I'm the owner of Cinnamon Stick Crafts.
We are a recently retired military family. I'm married to a wonderful, supportive husband and we have two beautiful girls. We've been all over the world through my husband's career and had many amazing experiences.
I've been a decorative painter for 20 years. It all started when my husband had to leave for training for 4 months in our first year of marriage (not a fun time for newlyweds, :) ). I needed a hobby to keep myself busy, other than work, so I taught myself how to paint. I immediately fell in love with it and it's now a passion I can't live without. I have to thank design artists such as Renee Mullins, Jamie Mills-Price, Annette Ward, Laurie Speltz and others, for the inspiration and patterns. I started doing craft shows and fairs over 15 years ago and began my website 13 years ago. We live in Maryland, so if you are in the area, come visit me at one of my shows! You'll find the ones I'm at on the "Events" page.
About the Business:
Everything you see on my website is hand painted by me. I take a lot of pride in my work, so everything is pre-treated, sanded, painted, and varnished for durability and longevity. Please be assured you are getting a quality item when you order from me. Most items are made to order, so please allow an extra week or two for "creating" time.
I love to hear from my customers and visitors! If you have a comment or suggestions, please drop me an email in the "Contact" section.
