About


My man and I both make everything we can. We believe that the mass produced items you buy from China have been drained of both it's artistic and real qualities... I have made my own plates, cups bowls and cutlery, clothing and bedding, furniture, garden boxes, my own tools... etc.. etc.. the list goes on. My current project it to make our very own shoes. Each "thing" we make has a history and story. My 2 year old has such a sense of pride handmaking all her gifts to friends this past holiday season. Her favourite line is "Did you make it?" So here we all are, embarking on our very own Steampunk paths.

I live on a beautiful Gulf Island on the Pacific Ocean. I am a Mother to a beautiful daughter. I am in love with a partner that inspires me, encourages me and supports me to pursue my madness…

I love to craft..... anything.. with anyone. I am a craft addict. I mostly like to salvage things and reinvent them to things I can wear.

I am one of those crafters we all know.. that really loves to craft.... but is just awful at it. Ideas that must come from the psychic junkyard.... festers in my mind until I just have to do something about it. I like to try new things and reinvent my craft all the time but therefore I am always in a state of frustration... it brings me to depression and misery. .. until my new creature has been born... and then ecstasy.

Steampunk... what is it?... it's all over and everyone is using the term. Of course there are the puritans that get all upset about Faux Steampunk.... like me... I am currently making little steampunk inspired pendants... gears and clock parts. But let me explain my view of steampunk... there is the fashion side of steampunk and then there is the philosophy.... I believe I am a steampunker and so are you... we are all here because of handmade things.
" Authentic steampunk seeks to take the levers of technology from those technocrats who drain it of both it's artistic and real qualities, who turn the living monsters of technology into the simpering servants of meaningless commodity." -Colonizing the Past so we can Dream the Future by the Catastrophone Orchestra and Arts Collective (NYC)
