Friends of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park assists the national park Service in its mission to preserve and protect Great Smoky Mountains National Park by raising funds and public awareness, and providing volunteers for needed projects.  The Smokies are one of the few National Parks that is FREE to visitors. The reasons for free entry to the national park date back at least to the 1930s. The land that is today Great Smoky Mountains National Park was once privately owned. The states of Tennessee and North Carolina, as well as local communities, paid to construct Newfound Gap Road (US-441). When the state of Tennessee transferred ownership of Newfound Gap Road to the federal government, it stipulated that “no toll or license fee shall ever be imposed…” to travel the road and enjoy the Smokies. These mountains are home and have my heart, they are the inspiration for my creativity, and therefore we thought it only made sense to share the love &  give back and help preserve them. We will donate 5% of every sale to the Friends of the Smokies. This money will be used for maintenance, volunteers, awareness and education and so much more. We are thrilled to be helping such a worthy cause.

Holiday Greetings

 

We are so happy to introduce our holiday Greeting cards. In fact, we have been waiting for the holiday season to get here since July. I love sending and receiving holiday cards. With social media and text messaging being a big part of how we communicate, receiving a handwritten note brings a priceless sentiment into gift giving. These Christmas greetings are created with a child-like wonder of blankets of snow, brightly lit trimmed trees, and family feasts. We recollect watching Christmas movies, making lists and checking them twice and not being able to sleep out of sheer excitement on Christmas eve. We hope for each of you this holiday season you have a sense of home and happiness and  you are surrounded by people who love you. You can find our holiday greeting cards in the shop now!
