I wanted a single serve teapot, since the household one is rusty and rarely washed (plus I have food intolerances). This is the perfect size for me, and it looks lovely sitting in my room when I'm not using it (especially with that color scheme!)

Wonderful soap! I buy a lot of handmade/specialty soaps, and these are the BEST. Lovely woodsy, earthy fragrances. Great seller!

About

I make things that make your life better.

My name is Lorena Haldeman, and I am the owner, maker, creatrix, artist, and hard-working woman behind HaldeCraft.

I was bitten by a crafty bug as a child, when my grandmother tried to teach me to knit and crochet (ostensibly to keep me quiet while "her shows" were on). That didn't take very well, but she also had a ceramics studio and the first time she put a brush in my hand and I painted that duck purple, I knew that was for me. In the years since then I have kept with my beloved ceramics, and also picked up soap-making, knitting, spinning yarn, making lip balms and lotions, sewing, and most recently, weaving.

A few years ago I found myself staring unemployment in the face, as the yarn store I owned with two friends was facing the end of its life. I didn't want to give up crafting as a living, though, I found that I loved it, and loved working for myself, too much. So I turned to what, until then, had been a joyful hobby and creative outlet, and put my mind towards turning it into the means to make a living. A lot of people can't do that; a lot of people find that working their hobby crushes their love for it. I've found just the opposite. The longer I do it, and the more feedback I get from people on how beautiful, eye-catching, enjoyable, or just plain useful what I make is to them, the more I want to do what I do.

So since the summer of 2010 I've been working out of my home, turning half of the house into different studio spaces. I now have a room devoted to ceramics, another devoted to dyeing and soap-making, both of my kilns take up a good portion of our small back porch, and my home office doubles as a shipping center and yarn staging area. I wouldn't want it any other way.

The team at HaldeCraft really does consist of just me (hard to believe I can get it all done when you look at how much I produce, I know). I am emotionally supported by That Poor Man (fix-it guy and all-around do-right man), and our furry children; Four-legged Dog, Three-legged Dog, Fat Cat, Princess Cat, That Poor Man's Cat, and Tiny Kitten. We all thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support of HaldeCraft!
