1canoe2 is the stuff dreams are made of – Carrie and Beth are childhood friends who have always loved to make art. Now they’re blessed to work and dream together in a little red barn on Carrie’s family’s farm. Whether it’s a hand-written note or a night’s sky glittered with stars, they believe it’s the simple things in life that are the most beautiful. Everything Carrie and Beth make in their little barn studio stems from a deep appreciation of life’s natural beauty. From a single greeting card to a hand-painted globe, with every work of art, they work to capture that beauty so it may forever brighten your home.
