Ready to Build?

Are you a VBS  volunteer or a parent working on AfterProm?  Maybe you’re a parent that is working on building the set for a school play, but don’t know where to start.  This website was built for YOU!

My name is Lindsey Ray, and I am sharing my journey through the world of low-budget set design and theme-based decorations.  I am sharing my projects and instructions with the hope that it will make your journey a little easier.  You will be amazed at what can be done with paper, styrofoam, and some paint.  I will share with you my tips and tricks for reducing costs while making high-impact pieces.  

So I invite you to jump in and explore around.  I will be adding new themes and projects frequently, so be sure to subscribe to my email list! 

Let’s start building!
