About Us


Cheery Thoughts encompasses our love of creativity, travel, and faith and our choosing to be joyful.

Envision a world where people are kind, thoughtful, and encouraging. A world where people feel loved, valued, and respected. At Cheery Thoughts we aim to find ways to spread joy, whether through happy memories, words of encouragement, enjoyment of nature, or uplifting Bible verses.

My wife Cathie brands her art with the name “Cheery Thoughts” as a tribute to the Scottish women in her family that have always kept a cheerful and loving attitude as they face the challenges of each day. As her Nana often said - “You cannae wait to be happy!”

We are excited to support Compassion International (www.compassion.com). We will donate 10% of our profits from our Etsy shop products to this trusted charity that aims to positively impact long-term development of children living in poverty, globally.

Hand-Cut by Bill and Hand-Painted by Cathie

Our original artwork starts with Bill (Cathie's dad) cutting each shape and sanding it to a smooth finish. Cathie then sketches and paints the piece. The sealing of the finished artwork is done by Jim.
