An Industrious Spirit from the Start!!

Lisa’s adventure as a maker began with the Girl Scouts at age seven as a “Brownie.” Projects involving seeds, beads, threads, wire, and wood…all matter of bits & pieces, scraps, and odds & ends engulfed her young mind. A passion to create was born and she had little working hands covered in pitch, paint and glitter to prove it.

Living solely by her handwork became her life! An enthusiasm to build, design, and express through a wide range of materials lead to a splendid decade of technical theatre in California followed by a lively stint recycling and selling her own nutty brand of active wear. Though magical and sunny, the West Coast journey ended successfully with a decision to return East and renew her Maine roots. Living closer to her family while inventing a vibrant crafts business in New England was the new goal.

For 25 years Lisa has popped up at festivals with her trademark booth filled with interconnecting theatrical displays and a line of upbeat affordable jewelry. This love of creating adornments and a devotion to her customers continues today with a handful of events, a website, and now an offering to meet new folks that shop via the Etsy marketplace!
