About

All aboard The Hobo Train!

Here's the scoop.... ♥ I started making funky hobo bags in the hot summer of 2006 on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. I was trying to avoid having to work menial jobs for low wages and really wanted to live a creative life under my own guidance. I wanted freedom from the grind, basically at any cost. lol Lucky for me I inherited some sewing skills from my mom, a former haute-couture fashion designer. I've been making and selling textile creations ever since!

I travel around to hawk my wares at festivals, craft shows, markets, and many other strange and unusual places. I have my fair share of carnie stories, that's for sure! Traveling like a gypsy to sell items created by my own hands is a unusual, unforgiving, and unpredictable way to make a living. At the same time the whole experience is sweetened by the human connections along the way and the humbling nature of the road. What amazing experiences! ♥

However, I am now settled in one spot -- such a beautiful spot it defies description! The Ruiter Valley in the municipality of Potton, Québec, Canada, is where I have rooted my feet. It is a magical valley that borders on the largest nature reserve east of Saskatchewan. It is most certainly a place that inspires creativity and feeds the artist's soul. I will infuse this spirit into the tapestry of my work and share it throughout this funky shop.

I deeply appreciate the people who have supported my shop and my business along the way. It means the world to me to be able to work for myself and live so freely. The people I meet through this experience are incredibly generous, honest, and true. Such a gift to me! THANKS EVERYONE!!! HUGS ALL AROUND! ♥
