Most of our Creative Efforts begin with hand painted paper to create greeting cards, wood & paper ornaments, wooden coasters or wall hangings from woven papers & some acrylic paintings.  We are the creators of the Original VT Cow Tail Fly Swatter, and our balsam or catnip sachets are always on hand.  Find us at a number of local shops or call to visit our very messy but productive studio.
