About

Hello & Welcome to my shop,

Wow what an adventure I've had creating for you. It has been a life long process that's brought me here. Designing, creating, & giving- that's what it's all about, with nature in mind. I've developed a resourceful sense the last few years with the desire to transform and simplify my life-weaning commercial products, decreasing waste, and reusing what's available. It's all about simplifying choices with quality, handmade items. This is my happiness.

The "golden proportion" is visually evident everywhere in nature~ a raindrop & a fern frond; shape, form, & composition ~ The universal law brings balance and harmony in nature. Balance and harmony equal happiness. When something operates in line with the universal laws it flows with ease, is effortless,…

Hello & Welcome to my shop,

Wow what an adventure I've had creating for you. It has been a life long process that's brought me here. Designing, creating, & giving- that's what it's all about, with nature in mind. I've developed a resourceful sense the last few years with the desire to transform and simplify my life-weaning commercial products, decreasing waste, and reusing what's available. It's all about simplifying choices with quality, handmade items. This is my happiness.

The "golden proportion" is visually evident everywhere in nature~ a raindrop & a fern frond; shape, form, & composition ~ The universal law brings balance and harmony in nature. Balance and harmony equal happiness. When something operates in line with the universal laws it flows with ease, is effortless, and is in tune with who we are. This is my foundation for Nature's Proportions creations.

My soaps are designed, and created from scratch with the attempt to preserve and use quality essential oils, natural colorants, botanical additives, and vegetable based oils. Each batch is calculated, poured, and cut by hand the simple way. I do offer one soap on a limited basis that is made with Elk tallow! Keeping in mind my desire to be resourceful and not wasteful, I could not bring myself to discard the fat from the elk taken last fall on a fair chase hunt.

The soap molds have been designed & created using left over wood salvaged from a local sawmill destined to be mulch! Who says a woman can't use a power tool, radial arm saw, and a hammer. Note the bars may vary in size due to the wood salvaged size differentiation. This only reinforces the character and uniqueness of a handmade product~not a commercial one!

I have also designed & created a market bag that is multi-purpose, functional, and stylish at the same time. The bags are made from once grain feed sacks- taking up space in the barn destined for the trash. Each bag varies slightly in size, and style ensuring a ONE-OF-A-Kind. The handles are wide, top stitched, and secured with a "z" fashion. The bags can be tied creatively in different fashions for new styles. Who says a market bag is the boring green or blue $1.00 commercial version that does not last. This bag is grab, tie, and go! It holds just about anything with the doubled material, boxed bottom, and french seams. It is fashionable enough to function as a tote or even a gift bag.

This is just a hint of what I have up my sleeve for you. I am full of ideas, designs, and creations waiting to be gifted to you.

Stay tuned for what's in store,

Warmest Regards,

Melanie
