Skills and Techniques

Enjoying the "Aha Moment" of creativity - Giving materials heading for landfill a useful and beautiful second life is very satisfying.
I work with rescued or recycled materials whenever possible. These come from FabMo-a wonderful nonprofit that diverts discontinued designer samples from the trash. I also take in unwanted materials from those who no longer plan on using them.

Get to Know

I started my shop to learn how to help my daughter get hers going. She has gone in a different direction, and I am still here with my crafting business to keep me busy.

Multiple Sclerosis has limited the size of projects I take on, and quilting is no longer possible. I work from my wheelchair on a variety of creative projects as my offerings have evolved with recycling/upcycling in mind. I turn unwanted materials into wonderful items with a second life of usefulness.

I run every aspect of my business. All items in my shop are made by me, and I hope you receive them with the joy I had in their creation. I guess when you are touched by the crafting spirit, you have no choice but to be creative!
