Ever since I was a little girl and daddy would let me help him work on stuff, I have loved doing things with may hands. I think I must have gotten my mechanical tendencies from him because he could do just about anything. Recently, I have descovered that my "Birth Mother" was an artist. So I now realize that some of my artistic ability came from her. Making earrings was something I started doing while we were full time RVing. John was a Seasonal Park Ranger so we would spend our summers wherever he got a job. That left me without much to do, so the jewelry thing seamed like a great idea. Of course there is not a whole lot of room in a 36' motor home so I did not have the large variety of beads then, but I discovered that I had a knack for it and so I started selling at craft shows whenever I could but never in very large quantities. I was also grinding stones that we found around the country and making them into cabochons. I bought a small table top grinder. Not the fanciest set up, but just fine for doing small pieces and it didn't take up much room. Those I sold on eBay.
When we settled down in South Dakota, I expanded my jewelry making and also started dabbling in gourds. They are so versatile that they are hard to resist. I soon discovered that there were no good sources for gourds in South Dakota so I decided to grow my own. The first year I grew Bushel, Birdhouse, Goblin eggs & Dipper Gourds. They did so well that the following year I decided to expand the selection. We have since sold that farm and now live in New Mexico. I did bring some minis with me as well as a few to work on myself. You can see a list of what is available while they last on our website's gourd page. Once they're gone, there will not be any more as I will not be growing them here.
