Website Changes:

We have made significant changes to our website.  

The "View Basket Projects" page has been significantly modified to feature our  personal designs.  

Many new projects have been added and there have been some price adjustments. 

Please browse and take a look and let us know what you think!



We now have three series of baskets that highlight the unique wildlife of the Americas.  The first is the "Trap Series" (featuring the Monkey, Raccoon, O'Possum & Chipmunk Traps), second the "Lifecycle Series" (featuring the Bee Skep and Butterfly) and the Third Just Announced, the "Call of the Wild Series" (featuring the Timber Wolf, the Kodiak Bear and the Red Fox baskets).
