Thank you for visiting Farmstead Lady Designs. I’m Kiva and I design and handcraft all of the items that you see here in my home studio. I have been a *maker of things* since I was young and sought to enhance the outfits for my Barbie dolls. As I grew older, I joined in with the crowd but found it wasn’t as exciting as I thought and began to mix and match my personal style with vintage items found while I visited thrift stores.

My creative juices flow in many directions. Depending on my mood, you can find me knitting, sewing, crochet, embroidery, making jewelry, cooking, gardening and more. I love to experiment with other art forms and ways of expressing myself as it relates to the world around me.

I am a stay-at-home wife and mommy to three (Alex, Zech and our little angel Malachi in heaven). My hubby doesn’t always understand how I go from…

I am a stay-at-home wife and mommy to three (Alex, Zech and our little angel Malachi in heaven). My hubby doesn’t always understand how I go from project to project but he supports me and gives me room to spread my wings. We are a homeschooling family living on our patch of green earth – trying our best to eat local, preserve what we can for later use and be smart with the resources God has given us.

All items are made with love and attention to detail. For my jewelry creations, I love to work with sterling silver and a mixture of gemstones and glass beads. I think life offers us lots of learning opportunities – so expect my creations to evolve as I do as an artist.

I welcome custom orders and look forward to collaborating with you to create a unique and beautiful item.

I am a member of – SHE (Schooling at Home Etsians). SHE is a wonderful team comprised of other homeschoolers and you can find all of our items by using the search term “sheteam”.
