About

I love to sew, however, I also love to make crafts and do woodworking. I make most of my Christmas presents for my extended family, so my shopping is at fabric and craft stores during the holiday season, and always have that next project to get started on throughout the year.

I am the mother of a beautiful daughter, mother-in-law to a fun son-in-law, grandmother of three grandsons, one granddaughter, and two step-granddaughters.

Growing up on a farm in North Dakota taught me how to do many things (unfortunately?). My dad always knew if he couldn't find his handsaw or hammer, to always ask me first. So when out of desperation for a better place to sew, I built an 8' counter. It was a challenge, but it turned out quite well!

Kevin's work is the beaded dream catcher's, and other beaded work. There will also be special orders available from him.

The carvings and watercolor prints are by the late James "Jim" Erickson of Rapid City.
James Erickson was born & raised on the banks of the Missouri River in Pierre, SD., where the Sioux, Mandan & Arikara cultures converged.  He began carving stone in the 1970’s . He was Artist of the Year twice in SD, & also won 1st prize at the Artists of the Plains from Augustana College in 1989. His preferred stone was alabaster, but did some of his larger works in marble. Striving for strength of form, simplicity of line, and above all, dignity, Jim’s sculptures reflect his love of this land and the people who inhabit it. He had to quit carving in 2003 because of lung disease & then turned his talents to watercolor painting. There are only six of the small mountain-man and Indian head busts, and three of the larger sculptures left of the hundreds he made and sold.

And, finally, Carole Conrad, has been dabbling in art for most of her life, in different kinds of mediums. The gourd giraffes are hers. She will be adding more items from time to time.
