We are two sisters that are a little prickly, a little sweet, and wonderfully creative and talented when it comes to designing home and table.
We started out in the corporate world, doing all the things that we were supposed to do, including making money, obeying the rules, and working hard. This ultimately didn't get us where we were meant to be. We walked away from that life and decided to begin again.
In our Cactus Garden grows 2 Prickly Pears, they are:
Prickly Pear 1: Terry, I'm the Capricorn Cactus Flower. I am solidly earth bound, very focus and detailed oriented, who is often told to take it down a notch. I embrace the Crone spirit in myself. I started (along with Frank) an organic/fair trade line of comfort drinks, snacks, and candy called Winter Goddess Foods .
Prickly Pear 2: Pam, I'm the Libra Cactus Flower. I look for balance in the world around me and have been told I am impulsive and have a shoot-from-the-hip approach. I'm often told to stay FOCUSED! I am an artist by trade with a line of unique lamp shade called Shades of Light & Design. I also founded Clairalience, which is a natural skin care line.
Through our closeness and ingenuity, we started to work together to build many ideas that seemed to revolve around design and food. After several dinner parties and through teaching classes, we decided that there was more to do. Looks like we will be writing a cookbook that will help the average cook or foodie find lovely, artful, and delicious ways to make their get-together's fun and stylish.
We believe that we live in a world of abundance. Sometimes you have to think beyond the familiar and safe, to reach that abundance. We strongly support local, organic, sustainable businesses and see ourselves as pioneers and adventurers in our own lives.
With a prickly sincere, let's have fun!
Terry and Pam
