Making things by hand brings me joy and makes me feel complete.
As a freelance graphic designer (her first gig was working for Saul Bass), Sofie sees the design potential in everything. So, when a birch tree blew onto her property, she didn't see firewood, she saw candle holders, cake stands and cool fridge magnets.
Her husband helped her set up the tools to make it happen (he’s a contractor with an artistic eye) and Sofie was able to carve out an entire table’s worth of rustic decor from one fallen branch. That initial tree is long gone now, so Sofie gets her branches from a local tree trimmers, which she then washes, treats for pests and turns into the wonderful wooden home accessories that are Simply Sofie.
