Hi there! I’m Patty. I’m a writer, innkeeper and maker. Read the blog for tutorials, tricks and inspiration. Visit the online shop and check out our handcrafted soaps, candles, cool finds and more.

Are you a business owner? I also work with indie retail and creative business owners to build beautiful social media platforms, websites and email marketing programs.
