How amazing would it be to have your name or your child’s name transformed into your favorite GEEKIE characters? Enter Gunner’s Nook! HI! My name is Ashlee; I am the artist and owner of Gunner’s Nook. A stay at home mom with creativity just oozing from her pores. I take plain & simple letters and turn them into remarkable characters. The possibilities are ENDLESS! My business idea started with my son, Gunner’s first birthday and a need for unique party décor. I can’t buy things I know I can make myself. I found these plain paper mache letters at the local craft store and decided to hand paint them to resemble the characters from his party theme. They were a huge hit and the requests started coming in from friends and family. I knew then Etsy would be the perfect opportunity for me to be that stay at home mom I always wanted and also help support my family. My shop has been doing amazing since I opened in April of 2013. As my business grew, so did the variety of themes and characters I have done. From your standard geek themes like Star Wars, Superheroes, and Doctor Who to themes like Mickey Mouse, Dr. Seuss and Princesses. You can be a geek for anything I think! The finished product is one of a kind because it’s your name with your favorite characters. Check out all the awesome themes I’ve done on Facebook. You can also browse my shop on Etsy!
