Lan and Mick are working with wood in Gold Beach, Oregon. I make homemade corn tortillas every day instead of bread and/or toast and trust me, it is not only easy and fast, the taste is incredible. It is like the difference between hot bread fresh out of the oven and three day old bread. Store bought corn tortillas just cannot compare. I had posted a photo of one of my tortillas with cherry pie filling on top of it to Instagram. And when I clicked on the hashtag for #tortillapress, I found these guys!
I hope you check out their shop on Etsy:RogueAestheticWood
And their website: rogueaestheticwoodwork.com

Jimmy is creating with cool stones in Traverse City, Michigan. I was looking for labradorite and found this awesome heart. You've got to see labradorite in real sunlight to appreciate how the colors shimmer. They remind me of the northern lights in the night sky. I hope you visit his Etsy shop: SquatchBay
If I can find him on other places, I'll add the links here!
