Here you will find beautiful handmade purses where you can change out the design covers as often as you like! Just chose your solid color purse and cover(s) that you like. Also available are scarves, children's aprons, totes and cloth baskets.

I have always enjoyed whittling, but started doing it more when I injured my arm for a second time. Carving became good therapy not only mentally but also as therapy to strengthen my arm. My charms are all handmade from trees where I live that are either dead or are already being removed. After making several jewelry pieces I decided to try some spoons and that eventually evolved into a collection of other hand carved kitchen tools. My brother decided to help out by hand turning bowls, cups, etc using a wood lathe. We hope you enjoy our creations!

I started crafting early on by doing macramé and sewing for friends, then people started buying items.

I like being outdoors and I am a motorcycle enthusiast. By being outside in nature , my interest in stones and leather grew. I have been in business since 2013 and currently there are two local shops carrying my merchandise.

I look forward to seeing you at The BRACA shows and will be happy to help you with any special orders as well.
