Thanks for stopping by. We grow our own vegetables, source local, organic food and attempt to live a meaningful life. My children have inspired me to learn to felt, knit, crochet and macrame. We are also keen recyclers with many of our crafts made from found items such as old egg cartons, tissue boxes and bottles. Please enjoy our crazy creations and I warmly encourage your feedback.
