The Willow Way’s roots go back all the way to 1993 when I made my first willow chair in a workshop with Kate Lawes. Over the next five years, Kate and I opened and ran a store in downtown Nanaimo, attended many large and small shows, and hosted numerous willow furniture workshops. Many of the designs I use are traditional, coming from Kentucky by way of Pemberton, BC. Some are then updated with design ideas suggested by the materials themselves.

After trying the myriad of nut and coconut butters on the market, founder (Brian Merkosky) started looking for a way to recreate and improve on these products. Always one to experiment in the kitchen he tried many different methods to make these butters but nothing seemed to be good enough. Upon researching further the idea of stone grinding came forward so the next purchase was a small kitchen top stone grinder. It was expensive but immediately it was realized that this was the best way to make creamy smooth delectable nut and seed butters. The butters created with this were so popular that the little table top stone grinder could no longer keep up. So in 2013 a commercial sized grinder purchase became necessary and the business went from part time to full time.

The decision to start FancyBands came out of frustration from not being able to find the exact hairband I wanted after my last one was completely worn out. I could not find a proper fitting soft style hairband that I liked, at least nothing local or affordable. So I decided to create my own. Like you, I have visited lots of different arts & crafts events and seen lots of styles over the years – just nothing that fit and presented as I wanted them exactly, until now. I look forward to sharing my creations with you.

Being a SAHM of four kids does have a ton of benefits. The main one being, that I am there to raise my children. I have been lucky enough to have this luxury. Being a SAHM also has its downfalls, one being, felling inadequate when it comes to contributing financially to the household. That’s where I brought my love of designing and creating into building a business. I love what I do. I love putting a smile on people’s faces with my quirky, down to earth, and sometimes very risqué sayings. From custom sayings and personalized items, I have been able to bring joy to others from all over. Thank you for letting me create for you!
