When did you realize that you fell in love with doing something? For me, it was high school and it was painting. It started with sunsets and beaches. The colors, the palm trees and the clouds!! Oh, they were my favorite.
I kept painting as a hobby after high school. I would mainly gift my paintings to loved ones and sell one here and there. With the support of my friends and family, I expanded my horizons to other designs and finally decided to start Colray Creations in 2015 (it was originally called Pocono Paintings).
Currently, I enjoy painting on canvas, live edge wood and ornaments. I sell my artwork on Etsy and at craft fairs in Northeast PA.
When my husband, Derek, and I got married in 2016, I fell in love with the decorating details involved in weddings. I made some signs like “The Watering Hole” and a no seating chart sign.
The problem with these signs after the wedding was that I had no idea what to do with them! I ended up giving them away after storing them for a while.
A wonderful new wedding concept that I had been seeing was rentals. Renting furniture and decor was brilliant, so I thought “why not signs?”
So, Derek brought home some wood, I painted wedding and party themed text on it, and Borrowed Somethings was born!
Through Colray Creations and Borrowed Somethings, I’ve really found my passion and creative outlet. I hope you enjoy my work and find something that fits into your home or event.
