About

I have enjoyed doing crafts for years. I have painted ceramics, tried my hand at macrame when it was poplar, made my own jewelry by finding vintage pieces at Yard Sales and Thrift Stores, taking them apart and creating my own. I still like making jewelry for myself and my family.
But when I happened upon my flowers one day while sharpening a pencil, and it curled into a small flower.. I found my passion.

When I first started making the flowers they were very small. I then started experimenting with them and created bigger one's, and then I learned how to make them sturdy, so they will last for years..

I am originally from La, but I lived in the Northwest, and I sold my flowers in the crafts stores, flea malls, and shows there.

I am originally from La, but I lived in the Northwest, and I sold my flowers in the crafts stores, flea malls, and shows there.
It was all new to me, and the other artist were so encouraging, and told me to find different ways to incorporate them, and not to give up..
So, I thought I would try selling them online.
Where I live now there aren't any crafts stores, or shows close by.. And here I am on Etsy!

I don't have just pencil shaving flowers in my shop. I have a lot of different items and crafts.
I also have great woodworking creations my husband and partner makes, nice vintage items as I find them, and eclectic items.

I love getting out in nature and being by the water, which soothes my soul and relaxes my mind.
I am a rock collector, and have found rocks from all over the U.S I look for the ones with minerals, and gemstone in the raw..
