Announcement    We combine shipping whenever two, or more, items are purchased together. Sometimes, however, computer algorithms don't understand that adding an extra item to a box is a lot less expensive that shipping each item separately. If you are accidentally overcharged for shipping, I will immediately refund the difference!

Bob loves to work with wood but he also loves trees, so we use a lot of reclaimed wood. Then we purchase the rest from Forest Council certified suppliers.
We believe that with a little thought and effort, we can all have beautiful things without harming the earth. He loves to make "wood pictures", an art form called Intarsia. He also does scroll work, wood puzzles, jewelry, and keepsake boxes---you get the picture.

Pam loves to work with glass and tile, especially making stained glass mosaics. Sometimes we team up for some mixed media creations.If you are looking for something special, let us make it for you! We love getting orders for custom pieces. We like to help bring your ideas to life!

We are very serious about "reduce-reuse-recycle" and reuse everything we possibly can, which is why you may see odd packing material in our boxes. We use our friend's birthday or other holiday wrapping paper, our grandchildren's homework papers, and any packing material from the boxes we have received. So, your box could be packed with yesterday's comics, some bubble wrap, and a math paper. lol But, we have not lost our minds(actually the jury is still out on that), we are just trying to do our part for the earth.

Thank you for stopping by, and thank you for supporting handmade products and individual artists!

    The story of Bob and Pam

    Bob and Pam started working together in 1979,in the automotive industry. They were both divorced parents of very small sons. They started to get together on Sunday afternoons,so the boys could play together, in the local park. You can guess what happened next. They fell in love, and got married, of course. That is not the surprise. The surprise is,that 37 years later, working together every day, they are still married, still in love, and still quite happy. :)

    Early in the aughts, health issues caused them to have to leave the auto industry. So, they flailed around for a while, trying to find something that fit them. Bob found woodworking, and soon wondered how he could have wasted so much time on cars! It took Pam a while longer to discover her love of stained glass. Even then, arthritis made soldering difficult. Finally, she discovered mosaics! Yay! She could play with stained glass, without a soldering iron.

    Now, they are in love with each other, and with their arts. Often, they will do a "chocolate on my peanut butter" kind of thing,and create something together. Those tend to be the best!

    When their oldest son, who just happened to be the father of their grandchildren, took a job teaching chemistry, at Centenary college, in Shreveport, La, working, from home, enabled them to follow them. So, Bob and Pam are now doing what they love, with people they love, and spending every free minute with their perfect grandchildren!
