About

All of my life, my grandmother, Pat, has impressed upon me the importance of art and of creating something special out of everyday materials. She has always been an avid painter, and over the years has taken on craft projects great and small, and as soon as my hands were big enough, I became her little helper. Little did my poor grandmother know that she had created a monster! While painting was never my strong suit, I found a passion for making jewelry, woodburning, repurposing, and inventing products to meet the needs of those around me.

We gave away a room full of finished products and supplies and loaded friends and family down with handmade gifts at every possible gift-giving occasion, but there was still so much...STUFF! So, we put our heads together and decided to create a legitimate business, and named it after our ranch, Lonesome Oak. The craft room was expanded into a full-blown studio, and an outdoor studio was added for basketweaving supplies and stained glass work. We pride ourselves on selling handmade, durable products (since I drop everything, durable is certainly the right word!) that people will be able to love for years. From jewelry repair to stained glass to basketry, we do it all, and we love every minute of it.
