Currently this is not a smart phone so my texting capacity is limited.  Also, I do not get pictures on my phone so please send via email. 

Email Address:

Email is the best way to contact me - that way we can each respond on our own schedule.  

If you call, please leave a message with your name and phone number if I don't pick up.  I may be away from my shop (and the information I need to help you) or in the middle of making something that I can't put down. 

I will get back to you as soon as I can - by phone or email - but it may be a couple days or so when I am really busy (which is most of the time!).


The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside the still waters.  He restores my soul.  He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.  Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.  You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

​Psalm 23  ESV

Please note:  This is not a "store".  I work out of my home and do not have regular store hours but everything I make is "on display" in my workshop.


If you are in the area, you are always welcome to stop by and see/feel/purchase/order my products.  Also, if you want to pick up your order instead of having it shipped, that is an option as well.  Please call first to set up a time that works with both our schedules.
