About

Being creative is my passion! I love to take recycled items and turn them into beautifully hand crafted home decor!

I started my shop after discovering how much I love to sew with recycled burlap. Burlap Christmas tree skirts, Christmas stockings, banners, pillows and owls are just a few of the items you will find here!
Recycled burlap and wool sweaters are my favorite materials to use and being eco friendly is a bonus! Many of my creations begin from a coffee bean bag! I can often be found in my craft room creating something!

Business Name:
My business name came from my hubby and I having a conversation about what to call my shop. I knew I wanted it to have something to do with coffe, but not to be confused with a coffee shop. Coffee beans are green prior to roasting, and my burlap is from recycled coffee bean bags. Together, we came up with " The little Green Bean"!

2014
I was fortunate enough in 2014 to sell some items that will be used with some famous actors. There was a movie promo for the Movie "Sex Tape" with Cameron Diaz & Jason Segal & my white burlap pillow with a red heart was used in the interview! She sat right next to it! The pillow can be seen here:

I also sold a banner to be used as a set prop for an upcoming film with Robert Deniro and Anne Hathawy! This movie will be out in Theaters this fall!

My last big accomplishment of that year was being a nominee for the 2014 American Made awards with Martha Stewart!

I really love what I do, I have fun creating and sewing with my 2 little boys! I have 3, but the teenager is not so much into crafts! I couldn't do any of this without my wonderful hubby! He helps with everything! He also does all my shipping!
Thanks so much for stopping by I look forward to making you something amazing!
