Despite being a nurse (Jenine) and a social worker (Amanda) by day, we are crafters at heart. Our journey creating handmade crafts began over thirty years ago, when Jenine started a business out of our home. Working from home allowed her to be a stay at home Mom to her three spunky daughters. The entire family spent summer weekends on the road at craft festivals and fairs throughout Minnesota and the surrounding states. Although our products have changed throughout the years, our love of creating things has remained the same. We are inspired by life and enjoy combining textures, fabrics, and colors in a whimsical way. We find great joy in creating art and hope to share our love and wonder with others.

I am a stay-at-home mother that is bursting with creativity so I put that on tee shirts!This started as a hobby of mine. I used to paint on canvas but no one ever saw the paintings unless they came to visit my house. The walls began to overflow with canvas paintings so I needed a new outlet. I researched batik and found a whole other avenue in which to show my work to the world through wearable art!
