Announcement   UPDATE: 8-16-18 Working on some new snowman patterns and fabric colors for our other snowmen. What a busy year so far! Thanks for the reviews and keep checking back for new items.
Etsy Shipping note: Multiple items do not combine with Etsy shipping, if you would like a more accurate quote on shipping Convo and I will post a custom order with a more accurate shipping rate.

***If you feel the shipping is high PLEASE CONVO, sometimes I make an error on box size or Etsy does not populate the correct information.

***New shipping calculations from Etsy are complete! I will still refund if there is 1.00 or more in overages. Some items do not combine shipping automatically with Etsy. Please convo with your Zipcode and I can give you an accurate shipping rate. Please understand the total weight includes the package, packaging material, and box. Some boxes may be larger than the item to include adequate space for packing material.

I feel it is necessary to state that every one of our items is handmade in our garage/basement. We take great pride in offering one of a kind primitive woodcrafts.

About

From the Craft Cave to the Craft Cloud

Lisa started primitive wood crafting over 20 years ago, The Craft Cave has moved several times, but her attention to detail and desire to produce quality wood crafts has remained the same. In the fall of 2010, we began sharing our lives together (a long story).
I offered to help her that fall after seeing her covered in saw dust, sawing an 8 foot board between two crooked saw horses. I had no idea what I was getting into. We had several lengthy talks about her hobby and the reasons why she did it. She reminded me that it wasn't about making money but about sharing a little bit of "her cheer" in everyone's house, lawn, door, flower beds, or patio. Early on, most of her buyers were friends, co-workers, and family members. We have plenty around our house too.
We have expanded quite a bit in the almost 5 years we have been crafting together! We have attended quite a few craft shows in our area, promoted our crafts on Facebook, and been invited to sell our items at several stores as consignors. We have learned many lessons along the way and have made a lot of friends. We are looking forward to our fifth year this fall season and can't wait to share some new gifts and ideas with our Etsy followers in the craft cloud!

    I decided to start "helping" about 6 years ago when I saw her working away in her craft cave. I can say that it only took two years to refine my skills and now I don't mess anything up too bad.

  • Michaela

    Part Time Painter

    Michaela, my daughter, is very good at painting stars, solid colors, herself, and all the "big" jobs. She helps out at the craft shows by loading and unloading cars for a small fee of course.

    Lisa and I wish her the best as she will be staring her second year at Saint Francis University this fall.
