I have a passion for natural skin care, hand processed fiber & yarns and re-purposing items into stylish accessories .I went to school to study skin care and got my Esthetics license in the state of Tennessee in 2006 graduating at the top of my class. This education helps me when formulating recipes for my skin care line.

I love fiber and all things wool! Spinning is a great joy and its a beautiful thing to see a fleece from a sheep I love become yarn, and then something to wear or use for the house!

I was raised on a family farm and grew up watching my great grand mothers, grand mother and mother sew, embroidery, crochet and quilt. I learned to sew young and had a small wholesale doll making business in my early 20's, then started a costume making business when I was living in the city. I have to be creating something to be happy!
My farm in Niota, TN is located in beautiful southeast Tennessee. It is a constant source of inspiration, as are the animals on it.
