You & me, touching lives, living whole

Why a shop? I love making things with my hands. Sometimes they are gifted to friends, and often they hide in cabinet and closet.

It has always been my desire to contribute with my own hands besides donating to local and global charities. To make an impact, however small with the abilities I have been given.

After some prompting from friends and hubby, and much praying, I decided to start here. 50% of the proceeds from MKliving collection will be used to support organizations that work to fight poverty, and build foundation for better future.

My hope for the future is to join together like-minded designers/crafters to make bigger impact with our handmade creations.
