I started my own business ALC Unlimited in 2006 to promote traditional crafts in a modern age. I used to sell the things I made at a local farmer's market and online.
In the early days at the farmer's market, I was known for my egg ornaments. I also received a lot of exposure from the cards I published using artwork by myself or my grandmother.
Eventually, I started making my own embroidery designs and selling kits. My embroidery patterns are now available on Amazon and Smashwords. I have not been designing much new material since I started my adventures in urban homesteading and motherhood.
ALC Unlimited became the company name behind designing my websites. The online community I created on each website provided an opportunity for crafters to share experiences and valuable information. But then I decided to sell my other websites and just keep this one. I need to focus on homeschooling for the next several years!
I decided to keep sage-urban-homesteading.com because I can share what we're doing. No gurantees that it will be up to date because my priority is real life. But when I get a chance, I'm happy to share our adventures with you. And maybe sometimes there will be things we have for sale, such as products from the DeVries Bees.
Thank you for your support over the years! Remember, if you have an ALC original, there is a small butterfly hidden somewhere on the item I made.
This is a website dedicated to describing my homesteading adventures near Baltimore, Maryland.

Our DeVries Bees products are made with the help of honeybees living in a couple of backyard beehives.
