Announcement   Hi,

We are Lars and Antje, a brother and sister team that always enjoyed creative encouragement. We can trace our fun imaginations and creativity back to our early childhood days where we didn't have lots of money or fancy toys but we had each other. Whether our family sat around the dining room table coloring a DoodleArt poster all evening, making up stories about sailing or submarining around the world, or setting up a makeshift workshop in the garage to make Christmas gifts for the family. We were always busy working with our hands, reusing unlikely materials, or just dreaming up new stories or inventions to try.

Lars went on to successfully work in the printing industry for 25 years. This field allowed him to become an expert in color matching, ink and paper printing, understanding die lines and a vast number of other items and combinations of  skills that continue to make him a much sought after craftsman in his field. Other hobbies include woodworking, boating, and of course box making.

Antje worked her way through a European apprenticeship as a jewelry designer and goldsmith. She continued working in her field until the arrival of kids when her focus went to paper & fabric arts as well as photography. This then overlapped into 20 years of creative home schooling and working in theater and children's productions. She continues to enjoy learning new creative art techniques.

Today we live in different states but we have begun to play together again allowing our creativity a chance to snowball into the products you see here. We hope that items we start presenting are a great addition to your own creative world.
