Locally collected and Inspired by the spirit in the surrounding mountains, valleys, and people in which I call HOME. From my home to yours. . .
Baskets tell a story, as a part of our journey, a part of who we are in space and time.
This is a piece of my Story.
"Arborvitae"- Tree of Life
This pine needle Suncatcher was made for a woman who suffered heartache and deep pain with the loss of her womb. So many women suffer alone, carrying that heavy loss throughout their lives, always smiling, trying to forget the joy motherhood might of brought. I was this woman not that long ago. Even though i am now blessed with two children, i will never forget the journey. You are not alone. For all the woman warriors who endure this deep pain and continue to embrace each day, I see you.
