A Welcome From The Queen


Welcome to my blog.  I have no idea what I am doing so please bear with me as I fumble my way into cyberspace.  My purpose in this blog is to entertain you with my humorous outlook on life.  Laughter is as important as air to me and I hope you will take “deep breaths” and enjoy your visit.   My posts will usually be random rantings about my life and what is going on in the world.  I would love if you would leave comments even if you disagree or take issue with something I have written!


About thelumberjackandthegypsy

The lumberjack is my husband and he owns Arrowhead Wood Products; Arrowhead Toboggan and Snowshoe; and Lake Superior Furniture Co. and is the exclusive manufacturer of wood shutters for Summit Hill Shutter Co. The gypsy is me, and I have a passion for teaching people to tap into their creative side, even when they think they don't have one! I did not grow up creative or artsy and I was in my thirties before I started sewing and creating things. I am a rug hooker; artisan teddy bear maker; painter (from pictures to large pieces of furniture!); knitter; doll maker; needle-felter, repurposer; sewer; decorator; blogger; glamper; reader; vintage jewelry maker; junker; and now a shop owner. But the lumberjack and I feel our greatest gifts in this world are our four grandkids and our daughter and her husband and our relationship with Jesus Christ. We have been married for more than 33 years and most of that time we have lived out in the country on a hobby farm where we have raised chickens, turkeys, ducks, goats, pigs and beef cattle. We also homeschooled our only child for her entire school years. We lived out our dream of being like the The Little House on the Prairie and they were great times. I also have a personal blog: rantingsofamadqueen.wordpress.com where I tell stories of what life on the farm has been like and other things that pop up in my very weird mind. I prefer "quirky or eccentric" instead of weird (sounds more fascinating and less creepy)!

  1. Hilarious! But you just proved that I’m not special at all…there are at least 2 of us who despite all of our efforts to be ‘cool’ and, on occasion, blend into the background, our klutziness puts us front and center.

  2. You are definitely not the only klutz. The stories I could tell. Probably the funniest was when I was in my 30’s and attending a class at UMD. I went into a classroom and in the process of trying to get past all the legs and sit in an empty chair I tripped and ended up sitting on a male 20 year old students lap. I, however, was mortified. I never learned to laugh at myself like that!
