Hey y'all! Welcome to The Rustic Peach! My name is Jenny and I am a stay-at-home mom living just north of Houston, TX with my incredibly supportive husband, Jared, and our three kids ages 7, 5 and 3. I began dabbling in sign making at the end of 2015, mostly creating for friends and family. I needed something that was “me” after our 3rd baby was born, and making signs was the creative outlet I craved. In February 2016, I joined forces with my precious friend, Lisa, bringing together our love for creativity and coffee. In that, The Rustic Peach was born! We grew the custom sign side of our business, but didn't want to limit ourselves to just that, though. We wanted to help others create something decorative for their homes with their own hands, giving them the perfect decor accent that they could both take pride in and display with confidence. We added the opportunity to host in-home parties in September of 2016, where you and all of your closest friends can come together, get creative and have a fun time doing it! The party side of our business took off rapidly, adding public parties at BeanPunk Coffee (formerly Conroe Coffee), and before we knew it, we were consumed with signs!! It was a great problem to have. After many talks about what the future holds for this little business and how quickly we were growing, Lisa decided to take a step back as the needs of her family were changing. We went our separate ways, though we remain close friends. She’s as sweet as they come, and I can’t imagine doing life without her.
Between the custom sign work and the parties, I've taken over our garage with tools, paint, wood and sawdust. I wake up early, stay up late, and hustle during every “free” moment because I love what I do -- it's all a true labor of love. I don't deliver a custom sign that I wouldn't hang in my own home, or let our guests leave the party with a sign that they aren't satisfied with. The parties would not be possible without my friends that are sweet enough to help out. They arrive early to help set up, bust their hinies during the party, and stay after to help clean up and pack up my truck. I literally could not do what I do without them, and I attribute a LOT of the growth we’ve seen over the past year to their help. Lastly, none of this wouldn't be possible without the help of my husband. He's as equally involved with The Rustic Peach as I am, though he's behind the scenes. He cuts wood, makes frames, helps me prepare for parties and does anything else I ask of him or need help with. Our kids "help" us, too and love to paint alongside me. We love that they are learning the value of hard work first hand and will cherish the memories of these crazy times!
We truly appreciate every opportunity given that supports this business. We aren’t big, by any means, competing in a very large sea of talented craftsmen. Your continued support, whether it’s attending a party, ordering a custom sign, or just word of mouth means the world to us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We hope to see you soon!
