The approaching warmer spring days have motivated Lisa Freeman to create a wonderful assortment of fabulous wind chimes and sun catchers. Using found metals, her fabulous collection of unusual beads, brass bells that she dug to find while “junkin”, and vintage chandelier crystals, Lisa’s creations can be adornments for an outdoor deck, or your favorite sunny window.
Inspirational messages continue to adorn Lisa’s wood and fiber creations, which are taking on some exciting new forms.
The fall of 2017 honey harvest produced a plethora of bee’s wax for Lisa’s luscious moisturizing whips and lip balms. Lisa will also be leading a creative workshop to create your own collaged journal cover during the sales period for Strawberry Garden Time. For more info and to enroll visit peaceinmygarden.com
