WHY I GOT INTO THE BIZ / WHAT INSPIRES ME:

I decided to start my own business both out of a need to create and a need make my own schedule. Previously, i was working in social work and then education. The hours were long and hard. And i felt unappreciated, overwhelmed, and just in a slump. I had no time for creativity (even as an art teacher).

I have always been a maker, ever since I was a little child. And I have always been encouraged to follow my heart (amazing parents). After my father died and my son was born in the same month, I decided it was time to follow my heart and stop being so frightened of the big "what if".

Now, I am inspired daily by small moments, nature, and returning to simplicity. I believe in creating items that express individual style and also make the owner feel comfortable and at home.
