Get to Know

My husband and I moved to South Carolina in October and now am part of a great community. I am excited to experience and create even more beautiful cards. I am an artist from childhood on when I received my first color pencil set. Love at first stroke.

My brother Gene started to work in wood. And now he is my partner here. Even though we are far apart this gives us a great connection.

Here's a little intro from Gene.'Hi, I'm Gene of Gene's corner. I am Carol's older, wiser, and talented (notice I did not say more talented?) brother. I spent most of my career in the Information Systems area as a systems development manager. I started woodworking many years ago, primarily as a stress reliever. It worked for me I basically did projects for family and friends. I have built many furniture pieces over the years and, of course, many items like those seen on our site.

Since my retirement, I do woodworking for two primary reasons: 1) I love it, and 2) it contributes greatly to both my sanity and my wife's.

Just remember 'Wood is good'. Attribute the quote to my good friend Tom at Switz's Wood Shop.'
I hope you enjoy both our products and come back often.
