About

I am an avid crocheter and just started to knit. My grandmother taught me how to crochet when I was 8 and I have been making things ever since. I also paint, airbrush, draw, macrame, watercolor, welding, auto-body, jewelry making, sewing, hair cutting, seed saving, gardening, hippy trading, vermicomposting and much much more!
I believe in saving our own seed and growing as much food for our family as well as the community as possible on this city lot. I have a back yard full of raspberries, strawberries and veggies come summer, three apple trees which make amazing apple pie and a ton more flowers and herbs. Im interested in trading seed or handmade goodies, especially for the things everyone needs like hand crafted soaps (if any soap makers out there want to trade) and toiletries.

I live in Lethbridge AB, where there are Coulees surrounding the city (if your not sure what a coulee is look up southern alberta coulee) expansion of the city is destroying the valuable habitat and so my goal is to share and use native plants and seeds to keep this wildlife flourishing, even if its urban, at least the insect, bird and other species that rely on the native plants have a chance. Every once in a while there will be deer coming up onto our lawn to eat the fallen apples or just to walk around the streets. It is such a beautiful sight but also fills me with sadness that our city has taken up their territory, forcing them to venture further into the city for food.
Please support the natural wildlife that inhabits your region, no matter where you live or how dense your urban jungle is, there once was flourishing wildlife living harmoniously with the earth and our race.
