About

My earliest memories are of elder family members working with their hands... a grandfather who spent hours in his wood shop, another who ran a small farm with care and attention to detail, an uncle who tanned his own hides and patiently drilled his own beads from stones and shells. Many of my toys as a child were made by the hand of my grandmother... my children slept as babes in a cradle built by my grandpa, and we all sleep under blankets stitched together by my mother, by hand. I find comfort and happiness in the creative process, and it is my hope that if you find one of my pieces that resonates with you, that it brings you an equal amount of happiness.

I like to use uncommon components in my work, such as vintage or handmade components. Because of this, the majority of my work is One of a Kind. I hope you enjoy it. http://www.etsy.com/shop/upzndowns
