Welcoming guests with flags becomes business

Growing I knew I had special grandparents, I knew each time we drove up to the front porch there would always be a flag flying to welcome everyone home. The flag not only made us feel special, it was also a signal to the neighborhood that my grandparents were entertaining guests or having a celebration. My grandma Joanne continued the tradition of my Norwegian forefathers of welcoming guests with a flag and honored our heritage.

Love of country combined with these strong family traditions led to the creation of full size lace flags that show off my rustic flare and feminine side at the same time. Our family holds large 4th of July celebrations at which I'd display the flags on our front porch. When friends asked repeatedly for flags I started giving them as gifts and now offering them for sale.

Our family also recently built a solar kiln to dry the wood that falls on our 30 acres of woods or is given to us by friends taking down trees. The wood is dried using the rays of the sun that fill the kiln during the day and the solar powered fans circulate the air within the kiln to ensure quick and safe drying for the wood. We hope to offer some wood products soon that were dried in our very own solar kiln!

    Hay ya! I am happy to live in rural Wisconsin, just outside of Madison. My daughter loves to help us make our folk art, crafts and decorations. She especially likes to help pick out which buttons go on the flags I create for this shop.
