The thing I love the most is doing custom work. It is so exciting to share the creative process and see dreams take shape!

I have lived in the Southwest nearly forever, or so it seems. While attending the University of New Mexico (from 2002-2006) I discovered that I have a love of working with wood. My husband and I have spent hours and hours creating beautiful things, including but not limited to; octagon shelves that fit together like a puzzle, cabinetry, unique garden planters and beyond. I learned that I have a talent for creating wooden puzzles. I have never seen any others that are created like mine. I hand paint the designs on hardwood (1/2" to 3/4" thick boards) and then, with my trusty scroll saw, I cut them into puzzles pieces. There are too many steps to elaborate (besides, I don't want to give away trade secrets!). I love every step of the long involved process, but each puzzle is hours…

There are too many steps to elaborate (besides, I don't want to give away trade secrets!). I love every step of the long involved process, but each puzzle is hours in the making. The larger ones average between 20 to 30 hours each, from start to finish. My husband makes all of the frames for them.

I also love crocheting and creating beautiful things. I rarely repeat the same design exactly, as I get bored doing the same thing over and over. I create all of my own designs and color combinations.

Thank you so much for visiting my shop! I am always open to new ideas, conversations and suggestions!
