Hello!

I’m Vicki Mutchler, welcome to my little piece of heaven here in Coleman, Wisconsin, where my passion and spiritual gift is creating beauty out of ordinary items. I’m crazy about my God, my family-especially my grandbabies, and am just getting used to the empty nest lifestyle. My goal is simple: To help you create items that fill your home and soul with encouragement and beauty, as well as putting a smile on your face knowing you made it with your own hands.

I have spent the majority of my life crafting with one medium or another but have found the most satisfaction in creating wood signs that either encourage you or add beauty to your home. The older I get the more I’ve come to learn that teaching others to create is way more fun than making it myself. Even though I still find myself involved in craft fairs, one of which I host in my home every November, I’m really enjoying watching my workshop attendees learn the painting techniques that have given me so much satisfaction over all these years. Why not give Boards of Distinction a try today?  Let’s create beauty together!

I have always felt it is better to create a gift than to buy one and always better to give than to receive.            Vicki

Boards of Distinction

In the fall of 2015, I attended a function where I made a wood sign to hang on my wall. The crafter in me went home thinking, “I can do this.” The entrepreneur in me thought, “I can teach others how to do this!” Within a few months, we made tables, bought supplies, came up with designs, and parked the car permanently outside. I invited a few friends for a test run, and we’ve been creating projects—as well as community—ever since. I believe God made us all unique and special, but we are meant to be a community that works together and plays together.

Why “Boards of Distinction”?

“Distinction” means excellence that sets someone or something apart from others.
I like the fact that God has set me apart to be me, and that the wood signs I design and YOU make are each distinct (set apart) from someone else’s. You make it your own by choosing your colors and fonts and changing up my example.
