Within just this last year, Stephanie Swinehart began her own business, Boards and Blessings.

“Boards and Blessings is a fully mobile creative studio that brings painting parties directly to you,” Swinehart said. “We come to your house and supply all of the tools necessary for your guests to complete a beautiful painted sign.”

While Swinehart has been painting customized wood signs for the past seven years, it was not until the last year she started doing in-home paint parties.

These do-it-yourself parties allow each guest to complete their own painted sign under the direction of professional instruction.

“We promise to guide you through your project step-by-step so you can enjoy a fun, laid-back, creative experience,” Swinehart said.

The cost of the party is based upon the value of the individual signs. For instance, an 8”x8” is $20, 12”x12” is $30 and 16”x21” is $46.

There is a six-person minimum for each party, and if the hostess has over 10 guests, their own sign is free up to a $50 value.

To book an event, call 260-433-8117 or email boardsandblessingsdiy@gmail.com.

The parties are open to all ages and all occasions, including birthday parties, bridal showers, team-building events, girls nights, church groups, children’s workshops and holiday parties.

Classes are approximately two to three hours long, and guests are given the freedom to customize their own signs.

There are over 75 designs to choose from and painters can select their favorite quote, saying, Bible verse and more to paint on their sign.

“The size, paint color and even the font is based on what you want,” Swinehart said. “If you are not sure of the font, we will assist you in the perfect font for your sign.”
