Smoky Mountain Leaf Works is Paying It Forward


Smoky Mountain area fall leaves crafted into a male Mallard duck

I was very inspired and motivated at the book signing event of Chris Guillebeau in Nashville, TN for his book, The $100 Startup. Since he has been the catalyst for my expansion of Smoky Mountain Leaf Works, I am going to go one step more, as he recommends.

I am going to donate 10% of all sales to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. As the beauty of the Smokies in autumn is the basis for my business,  I want to show just how important that is to me by making this commitment. I’m so excited!!!

It’s only 11 days and counting to the launch of!

Feel free to have a look on the new site but note: it’s not quite ready!!! I’m not prepared for orders through the website just yet as there are several technical aspects I need to work through.

I’d love your comments and suggestions, though, so feel free to let me know what you think either on the website or here. Don’t forget to subscribe to this blog for more updates as they become available! Have a great week!
