Alison Aadahl Designs

Let's add some beauty to your home!

You're not a mess. You're beautiful for trying.

My Story

My name is Alison Aadahl and I am a surgical nurse, wife and mom who decided it was time to add some custom beauty to the world around me! For my birthday, I purchased a sketch book and a set of pens and my passion has exploded since then! 

Style & Quality

Our products include stretched and flat panel canvases of various sizes from 5x7 to 16x20. We also have signs on barnwood, chalkboard and other materials. My favorite styles are beautiful calligraphy and fun chalkboard sayings! 



100% Handmade

Our products are 100% handmade by Alison in her home in Sioux Falls, South Dakota! (Yes, we even have the internet here in South Dakota!) ;) Since everything is handmade, don't expect a perfect product! Each one has variations and perhaps even a few left-handed smudges that just shows how much love I put into YOUR piece of art!

Beautiful Things

Alison Aadahl Designs features beautifully written words on canvases and other materials to fill your home positivity, love and encouragement!


Words can be so powerful and I want to use that power to bless others! I write words in beautiful, fun and creative ways so people want to display them in their homes. The world is full of negative words and I combat that everyday by only writing words that are positive, encouraging and help people feel grateful for all of the love and blessings in their lives.
