Crafty by Nature makes natural gifts - soaps, lotions, & pottery.

People ask me how I got started into making lotions and soaps. It all started with a Christmas gift that went wildly popular. I made a gardener's hand salve to go along with our garden themed gift baskets one year and people started demanding more wonderful hand salve! They asked me if I could please make more and they would buy it from me. So I began selling what is known today as Crafty by Nature Skin Repair, my most popular intensive healing cream. Later, I learned from a soapmaking guru the art of making soap in person. I travelled all the way to Rapidan, Virginia for my soap making class and it was well worth the trip! Soapmaking has become a big part of what I do. My ceramics making has gotten more serious since I moved to Columbus and began class at the Cultural Arts Center. If you ever get a chance to take a class, try CCAC because it has quality instruction and facilities plus it is really inexpensive, usually about $8 per class on average. My adventures in pottery will be a life-long quest; I can already tell! The best way to see our pottery is at one of our craft shows. For upcoming shows, go to and find out where we'll be next!

    I have always found myself crafting and creating various arts, crafts, and potions. Always curious if I can make things myself, I go ahead and try. I delved into the vast world of pottery in college. The world of pottery has no end!
