Design & Collaboration

Join My Team


There is plenty of room on my team. The more the merrier as they say. I am looking for team members to help with my shop and products. Do you love fact checking or researching? Apply to be a Pinecone Grove animal or plant specialist. Are you a graphic designer? Then maybe you’d like to be the new map maker. Are you amazing at sewing and embroidering? Because I would love to add earth-friendly field bags and custom made patches to the product line. Have a knack for taking staged photos? Nature inspired product photos would make a great addition to Pinecone Grove’s online shop.

Team Posts

Map Designer

Digitally design maps realistic or imaginary that inspire kids to go out and explore. Your designs would be used on posters, apparel, and if you’re up for it, a limited edition cartography FieldCard™ set.

Animal Researcher

Research and fact check about animal species that live in the world. Your results would be used on our FieldCard™products as lesson tools for kids 3 years and older.

Plant Researcher

Research and fact check about plant species that live in the world. Your results would be used on our FieldCard™products as lesson tools for kids 3 years and older.

Expedition Gear Designer

Collect fabric that is either recycled or made of a renewable resource – like bamboo – and make custom durable field bags and apparel to add to our product line.

Patch Maker

Produce fully embroidered custom iron-on patches for little explorers to collect, add to their field bags, or a jacket. We are looking for designs that encompass exploration, education, and preservation.

Product Photographer

  • What did you do for Valentine’s Day?
Emmett and I met up with our homeschool group and had a Valentine’s Day Party. There was food, games, and an art table. Emmett had so much fun ❤️ And I got to enjoy talking with the other home educators which is always a good time. 
We both made some new friends and we’re happy to see our current ones.
  • What expedition discoveries have you made lately?
Yesterday, on our hike, we decided to look behind a monument we’ve seen a dozen times before. We found more details about the brigade history there. That’s one of the many reasons I love revisiting the places we’ve been before.
  • This week’s Polar Bear prompt for the #GoExploreChallenge is Create. So Emmett and I are making Polar Bear Valentines!
What Polar Bear creation is your expedition family working on?
  • What games does your family play on outdoor adventures?
Emmett loves to play Pokémon Go on our hikes. It keeps him interested on the longer trails and it’s a good way to set challenges on distance and finding new parks to explore. .

  • Throwback Thursday
2013 - 2017 When my business was called The Pinecones Grove I had these t-shirt designs in my shop.

  • Save your cereal and food boxes. We have lots of recycled crafts coming up that you can do too!
  • Emmett loves to bake and cook. Yesterday, Emmett wanted to make cinnamon muffins. So he did. #ChildLedLearning rocks!
  • Did you know I make affordable small business logos?
Swipe to see the logo design I made for @meganbreedenphotography .
I know how impossible it can be to pay high dollar for a logo when you are starting a business. My logo design packages give you an affordable logo so you can support your family with a job you love.
