Spotlight Business: Slice of Serendipity


Slice of Serendipity

We are Slice of Serendipity! We are Veteran owned, Mother-Daughter team that makes unique laser cut art from our home garage here in Gilbert. We started this company in January of this year with the intention to push our creative boundaries and bring our ideas to life with our 75 Watt Laser.

My mom, Julie, Owner and Event Coordinator, quit her full time job to support our vision. She is the organized brain of our business that keeps my often spontaneous, ADD-curated mind in check with reality. She is organized and realistic- which I always appreciate. I am Leslie, Owner, Creative Designer and stay at home Mom of 4 very close together kids ranging from age 6 to 7 months. Before my kids, I used to choreograph cheer routines for national and world ranking teams. Both my mom and I were inspired to start this business to at first, fulfill a creative void we were having. But, it quickly turned into a full time business that we put our hearts and soul into.

Our goal is to continue to provide our clients with pieces that they can enjoy as much as we do. Our laser adds a 3D component to our work. We like to take things a step further and hand paint/distress our custom backgrounds as well and just to stand above an often saturated market- we are always coming out with new designs every day that you won’t see anywhere else! This beautiful state we live in often floods our mind with inspirations. We are not just a sign company- we do it all! We create event decor, jewelry, promotional items for local businesses and more. Combined, our hours and hours of work are a reflection of us. We make a great team. We take turns babysitting, changing diapers, painting and assembling. Slice has had a fantastic year and we hope to continue to be blessed.
