What Customers say

You are magicians for figuring out what we wanted and actually achieving it!  I appreciate your patience with me and so many visits, revisions, questions. Thank you so very much.


Heather is incredible. She is so kind and communicates both timely and thoroughly. And she makes sure each detail is tailored to your exact vision! She let us work with all sorts of ideas and substitutions to make sure it looked exactly the way we wanted and worked with our budget.


Excellent experience with Heather and her team at Merrymaker! Our consultation appointment was easy and Heather helped guide us through the more difficult options and choices. … no surprises, just excellent service from a great local shop!


We can help you select the perfect journal and pen, or provide any printed item for your wedding or shower.
