My business started out making custom gifts for friends, which quickly spread on social media and became an almost side business, shipping custom gifts and goods throughout the country.

I used to be part of a local makerspace where I loved using the large (expensive) laser machines. It closed a couple years ago and left my kids and I heartbroken, we loved going there and making things together.
I really enjoy making custom items that represent my home state of Michigan. I designed and cut a multi-layer map out of multiple pieces of plywood so that the Great Lakes had a depth to them when assembled. I then placed this into a shadowbox and engraved the state motto on the glass on the front of the shadowbox. It's been a hit!
