About

Part-time hand crafter with a dream!

After years of selling my carvings at local shows and to regular customers, I had enough 'push' from those same customers that I should find a way to 'expand my horizons'. Opening my Etsy shop last year was a 'leap of faith' --- with plans to start small and see where it went.

The carvings that I do are completely done with hand tools -- no power tools. And require many hours of carving and almost as many painting and finishing. My 'fear' of not being able to replenish items to my shop came true this past fall, but I wouldn't trade this opportunity! With a full-time job, I am still trying to make it all work --- but wonder why I waited so long to join the Etsy family.

I taught myself to carve about 15 years ago and now have a wonderful following of local customers who patiently await their orders each holiday season. And I am excited to connect with Etsy customers as well!

    I have been hand crafting since I was old enough to learn to crochet. And I taught myself to carve almost 15 years ago. My Mom and I have also had a seasonal Craft Business for 25 years.

Thank you for visiting my shop. I love to carve and much of what I do is inspired by my love of old-world Santas and the Adirondack Mountains where I live.

A special note regarding "The Hope Series" of Ornaments & Pins that are carved to reflect the comfort of a Quilt. I am donating a portion of all of my sales of these items to the American Cancer Society's Hope Lodge program. My family has been touched by cancer twice and 2011 was a challenging time for us --- but the Hope Lodge program provided an amazing support to my family as we traveled to take advantage of specialized medical care. We will forever be indebted and I want to be able to support the services so that other families can take advantage.

I thank you for browsing and please do check back often -- I am adding new work regularly.

I will do everything in my power to ship items within 1-2 days of payment confirmation. I ship smaller items via USPS Priority Mail. Larger items may be shipped via Fedex due to weight and item size. Tracking information and ship date will be provided when applicable via email - so please provide your email address at the time of order. International orders will be shipped via best possible option, but as you probably are aware, there are no guarantees regarding exact delivery date

I will insure larger items when shipped to cover any damage due to shipping, but those claims must be recorded with the USPS/FedEx and emailed to me as soon as item is received.
