Simply Rooted...

I have always had an eye for home decor and a resourceful nature. In junior high, I had a lame bed that my parents gave me. Just a mattress with the metal frame thing that only has wheels. I hated the look of it, and wanted something with a little style. Since, I was only in 8th grade, and had no money, I searched our barn for some potential items. I found a 4 ft wide by 3 ft tall multiple pane window and some 2 x 4's. With my dad's dewalt drill and spare screws I built a sturdy bed frame and attached the window as a headboard. It was beautiful. And thus began my love affair with finding discarded junk and turning it into something.

I didn't always embrace my creative desires. I did the life that every good Midwest girl should... Become a responsible teacher. Well, I hated it. And, rebelling against all expectations, I quit and decided to open an actual brick and mortar shop in Kalona, IA. Where I sold some hand-made items and found treasures. But, hours in the store kept me from finding and creating -- the things that I love most. So, I closed my storefront and now have the week to search and build. Then, I travel with my items to shows twice a month on the weekends. And, I also upload smaller items here on etsy.

I'm glad that I get to create and follow that dream. And, you can follow my blog to see where the journey takes me.
