My passion for crafting and creating started when I was very young.
I grew up in the very charming little town of San Secondo, near Parma, Italy (www.comune.san-secondo-parmense.pr.it/
My parents owned a tobacco-toy-candy store right downtown my darling hometown.
Since I was always busy making things, it was wonderful to have a place to display and sell my creations from an early age.
In 1986 I had just graduated from college with a major in psychology, when I came to the United States on vacation with four girlfriends, and met my husband, in the streets of New Orleans.
After many adventures, we have been making our nest among the fields and hills and woods of Wisconsin.
As I decided to stay home with my children since the very beginning and home school them, I also took the time to pursue many different things and interests, involving my children in the fun of exploring and creating as I went along.
I enjoy painting, knitting, photography, sewing, quilting, making jewelry , baking and cooking many different kinds of food, hiking and studying natural remedies and healthy living; I have a diploma as a naturopath, and for the last 15 years I've been making natural soaps and bath products. What started as a fun experiment, turned into a much loved home business.
My husband (Charlie) and I now run the business together, hand in hand.
Three of our kids have in the meantime grown up and moved out, and our oldest daughter and her husband have blessed our lives even more with their two babies.
We enjoy life as it comes, with its ups and downs, through laughter and tears, striving to keep things in perspective and relying on the Lord Jesus for strength and perseverance.
Our faith is what we center our lives around and we strive to do our best to glorify Him in every area of our daily walk, including our businesses.
May what we do be a blessing to you.
