The Story:

I’ve been sewing since I was a child, got a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2004, learned to crochet in 2009… you could say that creativity is just a part of my life.

Both my parents are incredibly creative folks, even my two older brothers got the creative bug early on. I married my university sweetie, who stole my heart in the printmaking studio, in 2007.

We have weathered many seasons over the years, so far. Wonderful blessings, loss, grief, depression, major surgeries, recoveries, and huge spiritual growth. We welcomed our son Samuel into the world in 2012. And we are patiently waiting to welcome more children into our lives through adoption. We purchased a farm several years ago too! What a journey it has been!

The Product:

When I started my Etsy shop back in 2011, I was selling crochet cowl scarves, quilted purses & button coin purses. In 2014, I started making the Love Catchers (my unique version of the Dreamcatcher). It feels like I’ve come a long way with my product & I’m continuing to develop my line of home decor items, with some small accessories for women thrown in here & there. I’m also starting to create product that bridges both our farm & craft business.
