GCD: 1 Year Anniversary Christmas [Card]


It’s hard to believe this December was the official 1 year launch of our little business. Who knew that last October, when Cale was laid off that, that would be the thing God would use to catapult us into this great adventure.

To celebrate our 1 year anniversary we wanted to do something a little special for our dear friends and family. So without further ado, this goes out to…

The family who supported us with gas money to Kansas and back…

The shop owners, and now friends, that saw something in our products and helped us work through our packaging, materials, and everything else in between…

The neighboring craft booths that heard our Tufa Pot schpeel OVER and OVER AGAIN…

The husband (Cale) that always pushed our products and process to the next level (at the expense of some over the top, maybe a little dramatic, wifely meltdowns)…

The friends and family who rushed to our aide the night before our first two craft shows (what we’re we thinking?)…

The blogger who left that 1 comment that made us think…”Ok, people really do like this stuff”.

It’s to YOU…we say from the very bottom of our hearts, Merry Christmas.

Thank you for sharing this journey with us and for allowing our products to be a part of your home, our design to be a part of your business, and our blog to be a part of your life.

Here’s to an even better 2011!

From the Farm

GCD: Tiny Tufa


Another exciting development for us are these recently redesigned tufa pots. We still make the large decor bowls we’ve always had but through conversations and feed back on Etsy we felt that many of our wonderful customers wanted something a little smaller, more quaint, and cute. So without further ado I would like to unveil the new and improved ‘Tiny Tufa’!
