My motto is “I want to create beautiful things, even if no one cares”. It’s important to me that all people have accessibility to quality, handmade goods that are affordable. Think handmade and support local crafters. It’s a movement.

I am a highly motivated creative woman with big ideas and dreams! I enjoy making things with my own two hands and I love when people enjoy what I create! I currently work as a nanny in Weston and try to keep creativity in my life daily. In addition to being a fulltime nanny, and running my own handmade goods business, I also sit on the board for the Weston Arts and Crafts Association. I currently am helping to organize three craft shows – two in Massachusetts and one in Maine. My dream is to move to coastal Maine and open my own craft cooperative as a place to facilitate local crafters and artists and to promote handmade local goods.
