This handcrafted piece brings me so much pride. My husband needed something to complete this wall in his office. I had a vision and said, “can I make you something?” 😏
I am so grateful to have the support & love from this man, who trusts me enough to create the centerpiece to all of his Zoom meetings. 🤍🤗🇺🇸🤎
Special shoutout to The Midwest Rustic for helping me fill the shelves with some incredible items! 😍

As a Maker, I am constantly trying to find my “Why”. And maybe that’s just what the whole journey is.
.
I struggle with not comparing myself to others in my field. I tend to pick myself apart for not being skilled enough, or versatile enough.
.
Ever since I opened my storefront, all I have ever wanted was for people to feel welcome. I wanted my store to be a safe place for anyone who entered. For them to feel at home. And maybe that’s because I have often felt unwelcome with neighboring artists. Maybe it’s my way of showing how I have always wanted to feel. I am never envious of my fellow makers, I have always tried to be their biggest cheerleader. And maybe that’s also why I have tried to help as many artists and small business owners succeed. Whether it is advice, tips or sending them in the right direction.
.
I love what I do. I really do. There is nothing quite like, going into my wood shop to put on my headphones and start working. It’s my safe haven. To shut out all outside influences, distractions and to just create. When I create, I put my whole heart into it. I hand select each piece of wood and clump of moss to make it beautiful. And when someone falls in love with a piece that I’ve made, it warms my soul. And I will continue to make pieces for all of your homes because of your generosity.
.
There’s enough for everyone on this planet. So why not help one another with open arms and share our talents and hearts. 🖤

Do you ever get smell a flower and get such an emotional rush that you cry?
.
This morning, I walked over to @londonavenuedesigns and picked up this bouquet they had set aside for me. I had personally requested peonies, my favorite flower.
.
I brought it into the store and put it in a vase and did the biggest inhale. Tears came.
.
Peonies bring back all of the memories of childhood. My mom used to cut fresh peonies from our backyard and they were always on the table.
.
Memories of sitting at the dinner table in our four seasons porch, talking about our day as a family. Passing the chicken, the veggies, and ending dinner with a big bowl of cantaloupe, laughing.
.
Memories of coming after a long day outside doing own work as a family and sitting down to have a bowl of ice cream
.
Memories of getting home from a softball tournament, exhausted and grilling out.
.
Memories of sun burns and pool parties, nightly swims and playing apples to apples.
.
I often miss the simpler days of adolescence. Where all we cared about was when the free minutes started so you could call your friends. Where you ride your bike everywhere. Where books, quality family time and sports took up all my time. Where I was able to dive deep into my curiosities with books. Where all I looked forward to was being able to stay awake enough to watch the stars at night.
.
Our childhoods were fleeting. And this one inhale of peonies has grounded me. It brought me back to why I decided to start this business, to watch my kids grow up. It’s so easy to get distracted with bills, money, and work.
.
They grow up too fast to be distracted with meaningless things.

Today, my best friend @gunny_co opened her own shop in Brodhead.
.
It was quite the special day, as a year ago this month, we were sitting at Hatley’s Pub in Beloit dreaming of having our own shops.
.
@leighialove of course had every single detail mapped out and planned. And Me? I had no idea what I was gonna do, but it was gonna happen.
.
We are complete opposites in style and personalities but we are complete soulmates. (sorry Tom)
.
Who knew, a couple years ago, when I first walked into the vintage mall she managed to apply as a vendor, that we would be what we are to each other and where we are today. (What a freaking run-on sentence that was).
.
Leighia, I love you so much, you are capable of so much and you have so much support from me and from the community. Never doubt yourself. I’m so proud of you.

Hello Zero Waste Rockford! Let me help you find replaceable items around your house that don’t hurt our planet🌎

Vegan dish soap blocks with recyclable packaging lathers up so richly and cleans pretty squeaky. Bamboo dish brushes are super cool because the brush is replaceable so when you’re done with the old one you can throw it in your compost bin and it’ll biodegrade back into the earth.

There you go!

Find us inside @the_midwest_rustic_collective at 218 E. State St. Rockford, Il from 10a-5pm today! I’ll be there all day ☺️
