Our wildflower garden continues to produce unexpected gems, which provided much needed beauty yesterday:

The Free Range Artisan’s nest has been very busy lately. My chickadee finished his first two weeks of swimming classes at the YMCA, and we used special water-resistant wrap for his amazing teacher’s gift:

True to my Free Range name, I am also a private English Instructor, and I presented information at an organizational meeting for homeschool families Monday night. Most of the prep work involved writing, but I couldn’t resist adding a few artistic touches:

A very special birthday that is coming up prompted a new card design. I will be offering more at Saturday’s market and through custom orders via my Etsy store:

I’ve also having great fun with polymer clay:

Pigs with Wings



As much as I’m itching to work on more pieces, I’m taking it easy today. Tomorrow is my son’s first day of school, so I’m going to embrace  special hen and chick time.

Creatively Yours,

Free Range Al


About Alexis

I’m an artisan, momma of one, wife, yogi, and thinker currently living in Missouri, although I’ve also called Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, and Oregon home. Throughout these moves, I’ve come to find great comfort in the ability to create. I’ve also experienced how sharing my creations, and the creative process, builds and enhances relationships. I hope this blog inspires you, and I hope to use it as a way to develop my craft. Some posts will be mental musings, others will show you what I’ve been up to. Who knows what else?
