She works on the cigar boxes while helping to operate Derl’s Lock & Safe within the same location.

There, she also shares crafting tips and offers crafting challenges using household items.

“I was a hair dresser before … I always had to be creative in some sort of way,” she said. “With this, I am having a lot more fun.”
