About

Thanks so much for taking a look. Traverse City is a beautiful artsy town with so many craft shows or festivals all summer (and winter!). The beaches, sunsets and even the frigid cold winters are inspirational. I recommend a trip to the area if you have the chance. I enjoy recycling anything and rarely take a walk without filling my pockets with "treasures" such as feathers, pebbles or interesting pieces of wood.

I retired from my day job a over a year ago and spend my time crafting, gardening and excercising. My oldest son is finally home from Afghanistan so all 5 of my children are safe and sound again. I have 5 wonderful grandchildren and really have a difficult time doing crafts for Etsy when I want to make so many things for the grandkids! Summertime is also a challenge for me to keep up with my Etsy shop when I work so much in the garden, canning / freezing goods…

I have 5 wonderful grandchildren and really have a difficult time doing crafts for Etsy when I want to make so many things for the grandkids! Summertime is also a challenge for me to keep up with my Etsy shop when I work so much in the garden, canning / freezing goods and being a part of the local Farmers Market. Winter is here in full force now and I am back to work on purses, jewelry, crochet, knitting and who knows what else.

I am happy to say that both of my daughters and one son are now a part of the shop and help with more really nice items. I appreciate the help, input and lovely crafts they contribute.

Thanks again for taking a peek at my shop and getting a small glimpse about us. I hope you find something you like or at least something that makes you smile. Take care.
