About

Hello
I started crafting / creating, or becoming a artist when I was only 9yrs old.
I got some old manilla file folders, cut them into cards, glued felt on them along with felt cutouts I made from Christmas cookie cutters & gave them to all my friends at school. My grandmother made & sewed barbie doll cloths & Raggedy Anne / Andy dolls and sold them for extra income, & my mother, sewed & knit along with all kinds of crafts when I was growing up.
So I guess I have always been involved with crafts/art in someway or another

Over the next 49yrs
(Ok I see all of you who are doing the math, I'm 58 ;o)

I have always done something with my hands, sewing, clay work, soap making, paper making, batik art, along with turning some of those into businesses along the way…

10 years ago I taught myself to weave. My mind gos wild sometimes thinking about what I can weave into a basket, so many textures.
I love working with wool roving & hand spun yarns, raw & natural items from nature are some of my favorites.

I live in a small community in Central Oregon, about 20 miles from the base of
Mt Bachelor,
I have 2 grown sons & blessed with 2 beautiful daughter in laws and 3 "grand dogs" that I love and are loads of fun.
I hope you enjoy my baskets as much as I enjoy making them.
