Handmade and homemade for the humble abode and loved ones.
In lieu of buying friends and family store-bought gifts at the holidays/for birthdays--I've been personalizing crafts for them--for over 4 decades now. I am passionate about sharing my love and bringing joy and happiness to others.
Plagued with skills of my ancestors, I'm compelled to make things from scratch. I maintain a huge garden, pickle veggies (including lacto-ferment), bake breads and have fun making up my own recipes for healthy snacks for my small village.
With a BFA in Graphic Design, for about 15 years now, I've been a self-employed website and graphic designer, and also specialize in email and internet marketing, social networking. I endeavor in crafts on the side as a passionate hobby. I've been teaching computer graphics software since 1990, and I love working with people and clients to help them become more self sufficient using computers and running their businesses (especially online).
I'm now traumatizing my friends and family with how urgent I think that it is for everyone to learn about better nutrition and how to become self-sufficient to grow and harvest their own foods, learn to cook from scratch, and craft--make things for themselves and for the delight of others.
My blended family now includes FOUR young girls, a life partner--and I think it's so important to instill into our family members: animal husbandry, home-making, and teaching independence--so that one can care for family, friends and community when needed!
The next goals are to acquire and manage a bee hive and to build a chicken coop and have chickens :)
