Outside of my profession of being an educator, I have pursued many interests and hobbies and always looking to creatively create different cuisines or artistic objects to share with people looking for unique experiences. I have traveled the world and bring this experience to my cuisines and handmade art objects. I am currently a private piano instructor, a caterer, and have a passion for exploring and working with essential oils. Additionally, having over 30 essential oils, I can create custom scents for bath bombs for customers to suit your needs.
Krista, or as her sisters lovingly call her Kricket, has always had a love for creating and crafting. She was strongly influenced as a child by her mother and grandmother. She enjoys making one of a kind items for everyone, including all the flowers for two of her sisters' weddings! During college she worked in a flower shop and her skills grew from there. She enjoys refinishing furniture and other pretties for peoples homes. It is pure enjoyment that inspires her to make what she does. She puts great passion and time into every piece she makes from start to finish!
Linda comes from a very creative family who valued hard work and the arts. Her mom and dad ensured that she learned music, and celebrated her German heritage through dance. Her mom lovingly taught her how to cook and sew while her grandmother taught her how to crochet. To this day her and her siblings are very creative people. Many of the same skills she has passed on to her daughters!
With such amazing family teachers, being a long time 4-H member, and earning a degree in home economics it is no wonder that she has a strong creative bone! Linda is amazing with a sewing machine and a crochet needle. She is constantly pushing the envelop for new ideas while creating high quality one of a kind hats, jewelry and clothes. She has inspired me in my love of all things antique and vintage which will find their way into many of the pieces of art she, my sisters, and I create.
The shop has always been a lifelong dream. Starting with toting her young daughters to craft fairs, then selling at the fairs, moving on to doing shows with her adult daughters and finally a shop of our very own...it has been an amazing adventure full of memories. Come see her amazing creations and meet the loving woman behind the beautiful pieces of art!
