My name is Mary Jane and I work at a Children's Hospital and create Restful Wraps weighted blankets. Creating is a passion of mine! When 2 co-workers asked me if I could make weighted blankets for their sons, I thought I'd give it a try. What a cool thing, creating and helping kids! Being a former teacher with a background in special education, I thought this was a good fit for my skills, passion, and education. My faith is also important to me so I started praying for every person who I was making blankets for. When working with a client, I like to learn a bit about them...their interests, the colors they like, how tall they are, how much they weigh, and why they are looking for a weighted blanket. This has been a wonderful process. There is an ever-changing collection of fabrics that I have found very appealing and I like to offer a solid coordinating color for the back of each blanket.

Wolf and the Raven Wellness
Becky at Wolf and the Raven Wellness helps clients connect to their own body and spirit through bodywork, reiki and yoga. I also enjoy creating pieces inspired by nature to connect one to the world around us. Being a massage therapist since 2002 and adding Thai yoga Bodywork over the last 3 years has taught not only compassion for others, but led me to find compassion for myself. Finding new forms of self-care led me to experiencing Reiki and becoming a Master Reiki practitioner. Bringing yoga into the mix was just another way of bringing self-care full circle and seeing the excitement of people realizing that any pose is accessible to every body.The pieces that are created using elements from nature bring in energies that one can connect with elements in their own life journey. From bones and feathers, to butterflies that have gone through immense transformation.
I love to cook and share good food with family and friends. I was raised on a farm and had the opportunity to learn about good home cooking from my mom. Today I cultivate a large garden and preserve the fruits, vegetables, and herbs. All my products are made without preservatives, artificial coloring, or high-fructose corn syrup and prepared in small batches, just like you would do in your own home. I also teach classes where you economically learn how to make easy and delicious breads, jams, yogurts, and cheese.

Ayurveda is a holistic system of medicine originating in India about 3000 years ago. It says that health is the dynamic interaction between our environment, body, mind, and spirit. Every individual is unique and Ayurveda recognizes this by tailoring treatment for every patient. It is a personalized system of medicine that focuses on the patient more than the technique. Ayurveda states there are three functioning principles in our body (doshas) and any imbalance may result in symptoms or disease. Dr. Vanashree Belgamwar holds a Bachelors of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery from India and has been practicing Ayurveda for 8 years. She is trained in Ayurvedic Pulse diagnosis (Nadi Pariksha) and is also a certified Hatha yoga teacher.
At a very young age I discovered that I had intuitive gifts, but not until six years ago did I fully understand them. Then, I began my journey as a medium/psychic. I enjoy being a medium and connecting to spirits that have passed on. As a paranormal investigator, these gifts help me during investigations by helping our clients find answers and clarity in their experiences. I am certified in Reiki Healing which has open the doors to new, amazing ways of helping more people. I enjoy making unique holistic and metaphysical items including: crystal jewelry, divination tools, artwork, and so much more. I am always growing and learning on this journey and am grateful for all the new experiences and knowledge I gain everyday through helping others.

My name is Rachel and I have had a love of baking since I was young. I worked at a small family bakery for 6 years, which only made my love of baking grow. I am a nurse by trade and in the past few years my baking has gone from just once in a while to weekly taking orders for family and friends. Baking has really become a form of therapy for me. After a rare transplant 3 years ago, left me unable to process certain foods. specifically gluten, I wanted to be able to enjoy the taste of my favorite treats but with ingredients I can process. I focus on gluten free baking and using all organic and local ingredients whenever possible. My goal is to bake treats that taste great, look good, and bring a smile to those who eat them! https://www.facebook.com/bakeryrachel/
