Growing up in a home where my mother taught me how to do many different types of crafts. She taught me to crochet, do needle point, counted cross stitch, latch hook rugs, painting, drawing, staining furniture, ceramics and sewing. Over the years I have fine tuned some more than others. But love putting things together and decorating them.
I see all kinds of potential in different objects. Too many items end up going to the trash when they could be recycled in one form or another. It is so interesting to see what functional object can allow new life into an old item.
I will be posting different types of items. All are unique and have their own personality. I don’t reproduce any exact remakes of any of my pieces. I will That way it is truly a “one of a kind” item.
I have patterns for many different cross stitch ideas to fit just about any occasion. If I don’t have one for your desired need, let me know and I will find one.
There are many ideas out there I haven’t even thought of. So, if you see an item you want made into something specific, let me know. We can work together to make your selection as personal as we can.
Maybe I can give you a hand in completing a project you have been working on, or you have a kit sitting in a closet, waiting for when you have time to do it. If you want help, let me know.

As you can see I will be providing a rather eclectic variety of items. Uniqueness is one of my goals. It makes life more fun and interesting if everything isn’t exactly the same. I am a unique individual and put a little piece of myself into everything I make. So each item has it’s own life and it’s own place to go.
I know each one of you is a unique and special person looking for that special item that will be remembered because you cared to go the extra step for that special person.
