Having a big family gathering for Thanksgiving and not sure how to get your home ready? Let us at Custom Creations by Sheri help! We will give you some of our tips and tricks, and are more than welcome to come to your home and make your space warm and inviting for your holiday guests. This blog will focus on how to use pumpkins, real or fake, to spruce up your home for fall or the Thanksgiving holiday.


Spicing up your home for the Thanksgiving holiday can seem like an obstacle, but it doesn’t have to be. If your home has mostly bright colors or decor, don’t think you need to change everything to oranges and browns in order to decorate! One of our all time favorite pumpkin hacks to make your home feel like fall without having to use the typical fall colors is to chalk paint your pumpkins! We may be a little smitten on chalk paint, as we carry Maison Blanche in store, but it adds flair to your boring orange pumpkins without having to cut or carve them. The chalky look makes the pumpkins look more rustic and fall like. You can even paint the boring old stems as well. Our favorite look is the gold stem with the chalk painted pumpkin. It looks great and can make your home feel like fall no matter your color scheme. Don’t want to deal with rotting pumpkins after the holiday? Use fake ones! Painting them works just as well.

Welcome! Though we've always had a website, we are finally dipping our toes in the world of online email marketing and are now starting to update our website often. Though these may not be your typical "blog" posts, we are using this space to keep our viewers up-to-date on all things Custom Creations! We will be posting tutorials, deals, and everything from our websites right here as a blog post. So make sure you come back and check for updates and new posts often!

To start off our blogging experience, we wanted to use this space and have you get to know our employees! 

Our fearless leader Sheri, owner, operator and designer here at Custom Creations, made this business come to life over 15 years ago. She grew up in Seattle and started her career in the engineering field, which brought her here to Iowa. Having a passion for sewing, she decided to follow her dream and start Custom Creations by Sheri, making draperies and doing custom upholstery. She has expanded her business and made it what it is today.
Megan is our amazing designer. Originally from Dysart, Megan and her family have been living in Texas for the past five years while her husband, Eric, served in the A rmy. Megan, Eric and their two children, Emma and Reid, are happy to be home and now reside in La Porte City. Megan received her Interior Design degree in 2010. She worked for over two years in residential design specializing in kitchen and bathroom design before accepting a position with McDonald Supply Kitchen and Bath Gallery as their Interior Designer and Showroom Consultant. Upon moving to Texas, she soon found her design home with Haven Design Group and worked on various projects in residential and commercial design, including a Jazz Supper Club. Megan is dedicated to make your home designs a reality.
And that leaves me! My names Katie and I'm in charge of, you guessed it, marketing! Originally from Gladbrook, I recently moved to Traer after graduating in May from the University of Northern Iowa where I received a degree in Graphic Technology with a minor in Graphic Design. I have worked in many fields throughout college, including customer service, graphic design, screen printing and marketing. At Custom Creations, I will be helping with the day-to-day things, including installations, and will be doing a lot of our marketing, including designing postcards, fliers, an email newsletter and keeping this website up-to-date!

Thanks for reading! We are anxious to get our online marketing going, and we thank you for taking the time to check us out and see what we're about. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
