About This Blog

I was introduced to the fine art of handcrafted bootmaking as a little girl and it forever changed the way I looked at everything we wear and buy.

A few years later, when I was 12, I created a job for myself dusting collectibles at the only antique store within a 200 mile radius, just so I could hang out with owner-Matriarchs, Ruth and Helen, who gave me an awe-inspiring appreciation for design and the context within which things are made and used.

Both these experiences ignited an enduring passion for dedicated craft, inspired design and a compelling storyline.

And of course, delaCav is a direct expression of these personal inspirations, as well as those yet to come - which is where my little Blog here will take center stage ―as a visual narrative with some storyline.

I'll share my experiences as a designer & entrepreneur and highlight the people, places and things that are turning me on as I pursue my passion and share a little truth, beauty, freedom and love... one pair of boots at a time.

    I’m seriously addicted to the documentary section on Netflix.  This is a movie that warrants your time if you’re up for a generally quiet documentary following the life & inspiration of “renowned sculptor Andy Goldsworthy as he creates works of art with ice, driftwood, leaves, stone, dirt and snow in open fields, beaches, rivers, creeks and forests.”  
I’d like to watch this with my daughter.  I think children who are intrinsically artistic will respond to this film.  
That said, I tend to multi-task and I put it on while I was feeling frantic about project deadlines and distracted by housekeeping.  It totally helped me shift into mellow mode.
