About

I'm going to keep on keepin on.

Years ago when my 4 children were all little I became a stay at home mom because the cost of a babysitter was through the roof!! . I was always worked a full time job and at times, 2 jobs, so with all this new "spare time" on my schedule I started making wood crafts, it was something I could do while keeping an eye on the kids. This was wayyyyy before I had a computer or the internet so most of my items hung on my own walls and some were given as gifts. I had a good cheap supply of wood, my husband owns a construction company, so I used his scrap!!!
In 1997 I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism, that ended my world as I knew it. I had a lot of allergic reactions to the medications used to treat it, so I went untreated until 2000 when I finally found a doctor that would prescribe me a natural medicine to take. Once "my world" came to an end, so did my craft making. I continued to be a stay at home mom, matter of fact, a stay at home everything.
To make a long story short, I was doing ok until a med reformulation came about in 2009 that nearly killed me. To this day I take a small dose of another natural med, that was also reformulated, just to keep me going and it must be enough to keep me alive, cause I’m still here!
And now that the kids are all grown, after being a stay at home mom for so many years I didn’t have much of a resume, and no one wants to hire you without a recent work history! So, I started making wood crafts again! I don’t have any fancy equipment, just a couple of saws, a computer, still have that hubby’s scrap wood supply and I think I have a great imagination! I love doing what I do, I can go out into my little shop and work all day and not worry about the little things. I don’t have a boss, I don’t punch a time clock, and I can take a break whenever I want to. Its just me, the dogs and the radio in our own little world! The downside, the pay is terrible!!! But that’s alright, as long as I am happy and have a diversion from not feeling good, I’m going to keep on keepin on.
