Earth Born Traditions is more than a company - it is a connection to our roots, our heritage, and our passions.
My life has always been filled with craftsmanship. As a young child, I watched my father provide for his 8 children with the carpentry business he ran out of our family garage. It feels only fitting that my business is now run out of that very same space. Where I once played and watched as a young girl, I now help provide for my family and build heirlooms for others.
Beginning in November 2015, this opportunity was from an ill-fated tree that gave way from the earth in our backyard. When examining the damage created by this fallen live oak, my husband and I decided to add to our garage and use the freed up space to create a woodshop of my very own. FRom that moment of creation, I knew my passion would soon take up residency in the natural elements born from the earth.
I began Earthborn Traditions creating a few small wood products, but it wasn't until the idea of my personalized shadow box came to me that a fire woke inside me. This design was burning a hole in my brain and I knew I had to bring it to life. I began working on this piece in the summer of 2017. By the end of the fall, I released an LED-lit Mark Twain Lake shadow box onto the market in hopes to share this beautiful piece of my heart with others. Little did I know, it became a smash hit. I sold enough within the first weekend to purchase my own CNC machine. I took this as a sign that this road needed to be traveled.
My personal brand of creativity insired me to branch out into different designs. I now offer a variety of ornamental home decor based around a lake, river, or island. These beautiful pieces can be hung, displayed, and shared with your loved ones for generations. They are rustic, remember-your-roots delights born of family traditions and love.
