Tell about your favorite teacher and why you loved them. I will be honest...I don't really remember much about my teachers in school so I will tell who my favorite teacher was that my girls had. Mine was Mrs. Dickey in the 2nd grade. She made learning learning so fun. And she made her students feel loved! To this day, she continues to send her senior students packets from when they were in 2nd grade and they love it! There has not be a single time that I have talked to her that she hasn't asked how the girls were doing and truly wanted to know. She is a true gem!!! Now who's yours?

What is your WHY?

People ask me why I would want to do this (my business). These are two of my “whys”. I want my girls to know that they can follow their dreams. I want them to find their passions. I want them to know through determination and hard work they CAN reach their goals! I want them to look back and be proud of what their mom has accomplished! Nothing is impossible.

My mom found this note when she was going through things and asked if I could make a sign from it. It was a note that my brother had left for her when he was in high school. How cute would this be to add a picture of my brothers when they were that age along with the change that they left for her. It’s nothing sentimental…it just makes her smile.

Hello!

My name is Christy and I'm a busy wife and mom to two girls. I have always had a love for scrapbooking, crafting and creating. I also love farmhouse and inspirational signs. My husband and I both work full time and farm. We live just a mile off the main highway, therefore, the name "The Country Mile." We have been a huge 4-H family and we love spending time in the barn with cattle.

​The Country Mile started when my oldest daughter and I decided to jump in and pursue our passions. We have been playing around making signs for ourselves and are ready to make them for you too! Keep checking back for our latest sign creations and let us know if you want something special and we will see if we can help you out. We are excited for this adventure!

We currently just sell through Facebook and Instagram. If you see a sign or have a custom sign that you would like us to make, send us a message and we will work with you to create exactly what you want. We especially love to create personalized signs for your special events.

​I'm so excited you stopped by our page, I hope you find a sign to inspire you!
