Company Overview / Our Story

Sharon Gorsuch began LindseyBoo Creations in 1995, one year after her daughter, Lindsey, was born. The business is named after Lindsey and Sharon’s husband, Kent, who affectionately goes by the nickname of “Boo.” Sharon wrote a name poem for Lindsey and family members and friends began asking her to write poems for their own children, and this led to Sharon expanding her name poetry. Sharon was working full-time as a legal secretary, and started working at small area craft shows on Saturdays.

She soon realized this had the potential to become a business that could allow her to finally stop working full-time and stay home with Lindsey. She had enough faith in her product that she decided to quit her full-time job and devote herself to Lindsey, her family, and LindseyBoo Creations. When Sharon couldn’t find “ready-made” software to enable her to write the poems in greater quantity, she decided to write them herself!

The name poems have grown from about 50 when Sharon first started the business in 1995 to over 10,000 today – with the growth due mostly to customer requests over the last 25+ years!

We are a family-owned business located in the small town of Waynesboro, Virginia, in the heart of the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. The years have flown by, and Lindsey is now a mother herself to Sharon’s and Kent’s first grandson, Nolan! (And yes, Nolan’s name poem is on our website and his nursery wall!) Sharon and Kent started the business working together in major craft shows, women’s shows, and trade shows throughout the eastern half of the United States and have met thousands of wonderful customers throughout the years, many of whom have ordered from us over and over again, for which we remain humbled and grateful. LindseyBoo Creations is a true collaboration between Sharon and Kent, with Sharon creating the poetry and Kent creating the beautiful art backgrounds.

The Poetry

Sharon writes these beautiful, personalized name poems (also known as acrostic poems) “from the heart” to affirm and celebrate the beauty and wonder of the children and other loved ones in our lives. Sharon researches the origin and meaning of each name and then writes a wonderful poem based on the letters of the name. Every poem is individually written and completely unique!

The Artwork

LindseyBoo Creations started with only 3-4 stock prints. Through the years, due mainly to customer requests, we found the need to grow our art background selections. Kent, Sharon’s husband, subsequently created 85 beautiful art backgrounds to complement Sharon’s lovely poetry, and our website allows you to combine the poetry, art backgrounds, and color coordinated mats in any combination to create a beautiful, yet affordable, gift, ready to give “from your heart to theirs.”

Each individual print (“unmatted poem”) is 8-1/2” X 11” in size, and priced at $6.50 each; and each mat is 11” X 14” in size, priced at $4.50 each. We offer 10 mat selections, 4 of which can be used as “bottom mats” for a double-matted effect. The mats are cut to fit perfectly around each print and are color-coordinated to complement the beautiful poetry and artistic backgrounds.

All matted poems fit standard 11” X 14” frames; and all unmatted poems fit standard 8-1/2” X 11” frames (“document frame”). Please note: we do not sell frames, but they are readily available from your local craft or retail store that sells frames.
