Twig and Snip is creating Connections to Nature

Since I was very young, one of my favorite things to do has been walking around outside looking at nature, daydreaming about the inner lives of creatures and plants. I remember long hours spent in the backyard with my little sister exploring, eating weeds, gathering flowers, playing elaborate games of pretend, and talking with trees.

Growing up I began studying Fiber Arts; weaving, basketry, sewing, knitting, embroidery, etc. There is something about creating an object that can be empowered with well worn care in our every day lives that has always drawn my imagination. I think it was because of this yearning to craft in a more folk style that I ultimately left my college art studies to pursue something outside of the Gallery Artwork mold.

For years I studied Ayurveda, Permaculture, and Wild Botanical Medicine. I also rescued a puppy and made a commitment to her to be outside exploring every day (We have almost every day for 11 years since). During this time I learned how to see and feel in Nature again, how to listen and gather plants from my environment. To feel the wonder and ease of just walking beneath the trees and it began to spark my urge to create again with the beauty I found there.

Coming to the Pacific Northwest I fell deeply in love with the land and began experimenting with creating my own plant dyes. I soon finished my Fine Arts degree, and began studying Shamanism. I began creating in earnest again, crafting huge Nature Wheels from gathered plants and dyed yarns. All my studies and interests ultimately culminate together around the beauty and magic of plants and the varied medicines they can reveal to us.

My current endeavor is learning how to start a cut flower farm here in the Pacific Northwest.  This year I want to bring everyone blogs about our process trying out growing cut flowers in our yard and the learning curve of undertaking such a huge project.  Custom tea blends and ideas for living with the seasons will abound as always, but my focus this year is carving out niche for myself in the green world that can sustain and feed my family physically and spiritually.

Your contributions allow me a stability in my life from month to month to focus on creating and planning more projects and grander adventures to share with you. 

Join me on this journey! Become a Patron and reconnect with Nature, as I share my explorations and discoveries alongside my pup, Pinto. Learn about different plants and all the varied medicines they can offer us.

Goals
$31 of $250 per month
If I can reach $250 a month I can work less hours at my 9-5 job.  This would give me more time that I could start donating to my local Wildlife Rehab Center in Snohomish county.  As a thank you for helping me spend more time doing things I'm passionate about, I'd like to start doing a monthly google hangouts (or whatever video conferencing tool everyone prefers) with my Patrons!  We can focus on whatever topics you'd like!
