About

"A little hard work never hurt anyone!"

I have a" learned passion" to create. As a child I watched my mother sew clothes, make curtains, design quilts, and prepare meals from scratch. I grew up in a farming community and my parent's motto was "a little hard work never hurt anyone". Being 1 of 10 children, we all had to work together. My mother has been a true inspiration to me. I am the mother of 2 and grandmother of 7. With the support and encouragement of my husband, I now have time to follow my passion! My interest for gourds was peeked after working with my brothers, growing long gourds, giant pumpkins, giant watermelons, giant sunflowers, etc. The gourd was one of the first plants to be cultivated throughout the world. It has been used for thousands of years, as bowls, water vessels, hats, musical instruments, and many other things. I love to paint, and changing a plain item into an eye-catching decoration is my passion.
