Note from shop owner We’ve just moved...deep into the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, where we can bring you more of our aspen delights!

While we get set up, we are taking a Thanksgiving break, but we’ll be back shortly after Thanksgiving.
If you already have an order in, we plan to get it to you as scheduled.

If you are visiting for the first time, please come back soon!

The last batch of Christmas walking sticks going out today. Whew!!
We have a new sign! On this rainy day, I decided to put our current wood orders aside and try out my new-found wood burning skill on a sign for an upcoming craft show (our very first!) I lost all track of time, so I must like itblush
We're sending off 16 centerpieces this week for an event at the Broadmoor Hotel. Each of the hand-crafted aspen candles will be taken off the centerpieces and given to the participants at the event. Sounds like fun!

About

Beauty From Scars

Everyone has scars from the difficult times in their lives. They range from minor to very serious scars, ones that run deep into the soul.

For Mike and me some of our deepest scars have resulted from finding that two of our three children had very serious special needs. And then, having fallen in love with them both, losing them to heaven…Kristie at age 3 and Bradley at age 18.

Fast forward to the present when we are immersed in our business Rocky Mountain Glow. Much of our business revolves around the wood products we make.

When we go hunting for our wood in the mountains, we always look for standing dead aspen that has been distressed, scarred you could say, from weather and from perhaps elk sharpening their antlers on the then fresh white bark.

We seldom take wood that doesn’t have scars, because the distress is what gives it beauty and character. The scar is what makes the wood able to reach out and capture the hearts of people.

This makes us think of our own lives. Without the scars, we all would lack depth and would be less able to touch the lives and souls of others.

So we have a special affection for our scarred wood. It serves as a constant reminder that distress and scars so often result in beauty, in wood, and much more importantly, in human hearts.

    Mike works very hard during his off time from his "day job" to bring you the one-of-a kind handcrafted wood items that you see in our shop. I'm amazed at how he is able to "see" a master creation in a seemingly ordinary piece of wood!
