Several years ago a creative soul in the city took a vacation to a small town in the woods, and never left. I am in love with this little province in the woods and am continually inspired by the splendour of the natural world around me.
I grew up in a house where creating was just a natural part of life. If we needed something new, the first question we always asked was "How can we make it?" I have carried this creative philosophy into adulthood as I have learned to sew, quilt, knit and crochet, as well as dabble in everything from soap making to keeping an "everything created from scratch" kitchen. I share many of my adventures, as well as recipes, craft projects and gardening information on my blog: www.artisaninthewoods.com. I am wild about wild places, creativity, and the old "waste not, want not" sentimentality of my grandmothers…
