About me

Located in the beautiful James River Region in Central Virginia, Hippie’s Creations is a small artisan studio where we handcraft all of our products. Each items is handcrafted and by buying our products, you are supporting not only a small business but a family that is proud to bring you quality.

Raised in cities around Frankfurt, Germany – I had a diverse upbringing. As the daughter of two people who struggled, I found myself in foster-care at the age of two. Due to various challenges and experiences as a foster child, I gravitated towards crafts. When I found myself to be a young mom, living with one or the other parent of mine – I found myself attached to the crochet hook – I was 17 – and I’ve been crocheting ever since.

But I also enjoy creating with other mediums and found myself to be courageous enough to try out what ever may peak my interest. I’ve been woodburning since 2005 – making hemp jewelry since 2004 and other fine jewelry since 2006.

I sometimes find myself scrapbooking or dabble in other art projects that I find inspiring. My recent one is zentangling my bookcase at home! I draw with pencils of all kinds and love watercolor and I like polymer clay.

I am a mom of all boys – one who is serving his country – another who resides with his father and two that are remaining with me. My youngest is a special needs kiddo – who was struggling for the first 7 years of his life – he’s 8!

I’ve since my oldest was born and during my youngest’s medical journey received a Bachelors in Accounting and a Master’s in Mental Health Counseling. Despite this education I live and breathe creativity in its many forms!

It’s been a long time dream to do the following:

Open/Operate a store in which I sell art and art is created. Mission Accomplished – www.charmedbutterfly.com - my studio for Hippie’s Creations is now located within this space – thus when you come and visit you more than likely will find me there!

I always wanted to write about my upbringing. Mission Accomplished – you can find it on amazon :)

I am pagan. I am an earth-bound girl.
