Our lifestyle allows us to pursue many different interests, including writing, photography, and graphic arts. Slowly, some of these projects result in items that can be sold to help support our lifestyle. You'll find them here as they become available.

We benefit directly from sales of every item on this page. Thank you for your kind patronage!

Aly experiments with drawing prehistoric creatures, such as dinosaurs, in the illuminated manuscript style of Dark Ages monks, of which The Book of Kells may be the most famous example. She offers her designs as stickers. These stickers are self-adhering, waterproof, and weather-resistant, printed on thick, durable vinyl.

Also, check out her coloring book, Librisauria.

To purchase more than one copy of a sticker, change quantities in your Cart.

Postage and handling is $1.00 per order (FYI: this covers up to 9 total stickers).

Aly hand-knits toy dinosaurs, prehistoric mammals, whales, and more. They average about 6" long and 3" high, made of yarn and batting or other stuffing. Because she works without a pattern, each one is a unique creation. Order your own knit dinosaur here.



We make our own soap by hand, working together to meet our needs and a little bit extra to share with others, like you.

We use coconut and vegetable oils, rather than animal fats. This gentle, healthy combination lathers well, even in salt water, making these soaps ideal for wilderness travel.

Made in Alaska logo Our soaps are certified Made in Alaska products!

NOTE: Supplies are often extremely limited! Please email us to make sure we have the inventory to handle your order!

Also, because we hand make soap, uniformity is not guaranteed. While we strive for consistancy, many different qualities such as color and strength of fragrance inevitably vary from batch to batch.

Current Varieties:

Tea Tree/Lavender (No Photo Available)

How Many Cakes ofTea Tree/Lavender Soap?

Our soap cakes average about 3.5 ounces, in cakes about 2.75" in diameter, about 1" thick.

We sell exclusively on this web site and at Alaska Rod's in Haines, Alaska.

Because we make each batch by hand, quantities are limited, and vary in availability! We age each batch a minimum of 3 weeks to achieve full saponification. If you're in a hurry, or would like to buy soap in quantities other than listed below, please email us for availability and pricing.

Note that ordering from us requires a minimum purchase of two cakes. Our prices include shipping and handling. The listed price is your total price for shipping in the United States. Foreign orders, please email us, we'll figure out the postage and give you a price.
