About

I've always been a creative person. I used to make mud marbles in the yard, then Mom taught me cross stitch, basic sewing, and making pot holders with those nylon bands (guess what you woulda got for xmas!). I progressed from making homemade nail stickers to making my own clothes (or at least trying to!). My craft/art time soon gave way to the responsibilities of being an adult with college classes & work stuff to take care of. My creativity shifted towards DIY projects when I bought my first property.

All of my products are made with repurposed materials. My start was with the golf ball coat rack. Then, I saw this big pile of wood from my brother's torn down garage and thought, "how perfectly shabby this stuff is...it's just too cool to just burn!" The rest is history. I just like taking cast away stuff that would end up in a land fill and repurposing it. We're all just ourselves out there in the world...it's our decision what we do with the short time we're given in this world. I'm having the best time making something outta nothing and I'm not looking back. Keep keepin' it real....
