Whimsy inspired by the natural treasures of Maine. Welcome!

About

Maine holds unique and vibrant treasures — and I love to share these with you!

My family and I live on an organic hobby farm in Maine, where we sustainably raise fruit, vegetables, eggs, flowers, and forest for our own enjoyment and that of friends, family, and visitors to our Guest House. Here at Moment’s Peace Farm we rescue horses in our restored early 19th century barn, as founding members of Northern Lights Horse Rescue (www.nlhr.org).

We also live quite close to the sea. In less than 30 minutes, we can be on miles of sandy shore at either of our two favorite southern Maine beaches, and in just a few minutes more, another half dozen beaches await. Beach-combing continues to be a lifetime passion – never harvesting live creatures, in keeping with our philosophy of supporting sustainable systems – finding shells and other treasures, such as driftwood, and then seeing what they inspire. Often I don’t know what each treasure will become yet, but I know it will be something!

Wreathes, jewelry, up-cycled bags made from horse blankets — and
sometimes, crafts that combine the treasures of both farm and sea, such as our balsam sachets — are the products of thoughtful reflection and skilled craftsmanship that I hope bring a sense of Maine to you or your lucky gift recipient.

Let me know if you have a special idea in mind yourself – special orders are welcome, too. Welcome to Crafts of Maine!

    The Mending Mouse helps bring my vision to life by sewing the horse blankets I recycle into my designs for bucket bags, totes, and sachets. (And those we can return to service for the rescues, we do!)
