I think I have always loved items created by hand. My grandmother made all of her own clothes, even designing her own patterns. She also made quilts. Actually she lived with us until I was about 15 and I remember my mother and her bent over their sewing tables in the afternoons creating. My father and grandfather were tailors with my grandfather making his first suit at age 14. So with this family background, I learned to appreciate the art of crafting something with your own two hands.

Later I became involved in sewing, crocheting, and stenciling and enjoyed it all. I was always making gifts for friends and family until some good friends asked if I would like to take part in a little craft show they were having in their home. I was hooked!

So from there my business was started and has evolved over the years into what it is today. My husband does most the woodworking involved in our business. Together we both do all the designing of new product and our vinyl decals. We also do custom wood signs and vinyl signs. It seems we are always coming up with new ideas that keep us learning new techniques. So we never know what the next year will bring!
