The Sitting Tree- Artist Feature and Giveaway!



i have been a fan of the beautiful works found at the Sitting Tree for a very long time. 

 Liz and her husband Mike, the talented artists behind The Sitting Tree,  live with a trio of wildly creative and beautiful unschooled boys, an English Setter called Bailey, and a reclusive black cat.  They had a dream to raise a family. To live and work off the land, connected to the earth and each other. 

This last spring  they bought 10 acres of land on a dead end road, nestled into the woods of Northern Wisconsin and are working hard to make their dream a reality!  They are building it all from scratch  and using as many recycled materials as possible. They are  also paying for everything in cash, so the process is slow going.  You can follow along on their journey at The Sitting Tree blog.   


Liz has a deep love of fiber and knitting. She offers beautiful hand dyed yarns and knitting patterns in The Sitting Tree  Etsy Shop. Her husband recently  joined in to help  crafting handmade soaps and creates natural buttons and ornaments out of recycled wood.




 In the Etsy shop you’ll find a wonderful variety of natural, sustainable products including  homemade soaps, tree branch buttons and ornaments, upcycled clothing, knitting patterns and hand dyed yarns. The knitting patterns come as a PDF file that can be downloaded upon payment.  



The handmade soaps are all natural castile soap. They come in a variety of scents like pumpkin spice, wild mint, lavender baby and more.  Each soap is neatly packaged in a 100% recyclable boxes. These make great stocking stuffers!  At The Sitting Tree they make each of their products slowly, naturally, and with sustainability in mind. 



These tree branch ornaments are one of my favorite items! Each design is original and drawn free hand with a wood burning tool. They are made from birch wood that is sustainably harvested from their homestead.  They only use trees and branches that have fallen naturally. Each piece is finished with a homemade non-toxic beeswax polish. These beautiful ornaments are heirloom quality and would be especially perfect decorating a woodland or rustic themed tree. 

At the Sitting Tree, they are inspired by everything nature and try to make sure that every product reflects the love and respect they have for mother earth. Every purchase you make helps them along the path to their dreams.
