Reason would dictate with college debt mounting that the only option would be to get a job. One Master’s Degree and three undergrads later , we are both still artists, and part of our job is to do all of the crazy , awesome risk taking things that few others dare to do. We have founded and created our own small business, Lost + Found, offering one of a kind jewelry creations, art and accessories. One of the important aspects of this art venture is the ability to be mobile, to be available for art and craft shows without the costs of keeping up with rent in a place we would scarcely be anyhow.

FREEDA SPIRIT!!!!!! Creative Workspace & Mobile Home.
We are partnering with TKG Automotive in renovating our 1977 Sportscoach. We found our nest egg last October, (yes, one year ago, I can not believe how fast the year has gone), outside of Grand Rapids, MI. We are hoping to be off to warmer weather... This is where you come in. In order to reach our goals before winter really sets in we are in need of some additional funding. Revamping a vintage motorhome is quite the remodeling artistic challenge; learning about everything from solar systems to roofing and even composting toilets. We are knee deep in a living machine. -pumpkin turned stagecoach, lemons into lemonade. Our blog Council Fire will be host to updates, pics, and resources for our fellow travelers and purveyors of oddities to enjoy. http://www.landoflostandfound.com/council-fire
Bright minds from many generations and from all over the planet are calling us to challenge the very way we go about living. We are at a momentous place in which we can connect across borders to support and encourage each other to move imaginatively and resourcefully in new directions.
“Only the free-wheeling artist-explorer, non-academic, scientist-philosopher, mechanic, economist-poet who has never waited for patron-starting and accrediting of his co-ordinate capabilities holds the prime initiative today.” ~Richard Buckminster Fuller p. 249 Ideas & Integrities
We need your help to spur our to life. We have set our sights high and our doing our best, but with winter at our doorstep it is truly crunch time. We are devoting all of our resources before freezing Michigan temperatures ice us in. We cannot wait to share our dreams with you. Freeda Spirit will be our living experimental laboratory for creativity and adventure.
