Inspiration Comes From Our Backyard
The idea to start creating and selling handmade goods came to me from simply spending time in our backyard. Years ago, my family decided to join the sustainable movement. We first started growing an organic vegetable garden, then composting and now we are raising chickens....it's addictive. We ride bikes as much as we can and my husband's Volvo even runs on vegetable oil.
I've always enjoyed creating art and selling it on etsy just made sense, plus buying and selling handmade products is so much better for the environment. Many of my pieces reflect what you would see in our backyard, which includes a collection of Buddhas, succulents, fruit trees, an organic vegetable garden and a chicken coop with a living rooftop!
Thanks to my husband's green thumb, mother nature, my yoga practice and my love for creativity...collectively ideas start to flow.
My inspirational pieces such as the Buddha, Goddess or Deity necklaces are a way to share and promote love and compassion for each other. When someone buys one of my pieces, right before I ship it, I send a loving kindness prayer into the universe for this total stranger.
Through my etsy shop and blog, I hope to inspire others to express their creativity, to live responsibly and to be kind to one another.

Raised in Michigan... now living in California. I will always be "mid-western" at heart! I spend my days working with special needs children, caring for my family, tending to our little urban farm and creating pieces inspired from our backyard.
