Thank you for making this custom sized tree for our Halloween Party. I cannot wait to display it. Thank you for making this so quickly for us. Great communication through the whole process (which was super fast). I will definitely shop with you again. And thank you so much for the extras. That was a super nice touch. YOU ROCK!!!
Family Love+Crafting Love=MyLaughingLion
Not long ago a life event created big changes for my family and I. Rising to the challenge, we are using creativity as an outlet for inspiration and healing. We've taken our love for crafting and our love for each other to create our shop- My Laughing Lion.
Working with wire has become a passion and I enjoy making miniature trees and unique bead and wire pendants. My wire trees are inspired by the trees outside my window. I love being able to bring a tiny bit of nature indoors.
For the shop, each person in my family has a role and exciting new title. Let me introduce them to you:
My son Sebastian is a strapping young man of 19. He will be in charge of shipping, so his cool title is: International Transportation Director. He is still learning to drive, but he can navigate the post office like a champ. Isabel is 13 and helps with a bit of making, computer work and photos. She has great taste, style and gorgeous hair so I think Creative Craft and Quaffed director. My husband Esteban does not directly work for the shop but he provides comic relief and great food, so he is CFO (Chief Food/Fun Officer). In addition to making tiny trees, I like to cheer everyone on and love chocolate so I will be the CEO: Chief Encouragement/Eating chocolate Officer).
Our little family has had some challenges, but instead of being broken, our bond is stronger than ever. Having this shop has given us a family project that we all care about.

Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
I got the bug for making things as a Brownie then Girl Scout when I was a child. Now, creating feels therapeutic and nourishes my heart and mind. Having my family support me so enthusiastically is like living in a favorite dream.
Maker, Designer, Curator
Isabel has a sophisticated sense of color and style and we enjoy working together. She put together the light box that has improved our photos dramatically. Sometimes I have to make sure she does homework before shopwork.
Luci is a three year old lab boxer mix. She is the sweetest dog on the planet and likes to go on long walks with Esteban and Sebastian. She also likes to sleep near the sparkly creative cloud Isabel and I make when we create.
