We are Kristine and Janis from Latvia and this is a story about love.
A year after our wedding we fell in love again, but this time it was with the 100 years old house in the beautiful countryside. We fell in love so deeply that from the moment we saw this property we couldn`t imagine our life anywhere else. House was in a bad condition, nobody has lived there in the past 5 years and everything all around was overgrown with the bushes. But somehow, we saw through all this mess – we felt a deep connection with this place and we knew that we have found our home. We wanted to make this place rise again and live the life here that we have always dreamed of – close to the nature and far from the city lights in our own little paradise near the rocky river, surrounded by peace and wilderness. The price for the property was high, but the love for this wonderful place was even more greater, so we managed to get the long term payment agreement with the owners, as banks were not interested in funding an abandoned countryside property. We have now paid 36 500 EUR of the total of 50 000 EUR over the past years, but the remaining 13 500 EUR now is a real struggle and the final date of the official agreement has now expired. We were behind of schedule because of several unexpected reasons, so we were searching for additional income options. Since then we have invested a lot of time, effort and money to develop our laser cutting business. When our efforts finally started to generate the very needed additional income, the global corona virus pandemic came out of the blue and put as back into even larger financial struggle as before. Our small family business is very slow at the moment. We make party decorations and other laser cut items and sell them on Etsy.com, but as we all know – parties are cancelled now and decorations are not the first priority items in force major situations. Now we are facing the struggle to find solutions for our house payment, because we can`t rely on our income in these very challenging times and we can`t bear the thought of loosing our home. We have decided to stay positive and think outside the box, so we are starting this fundraising campaign because we strongly believe in people helping each other. In this situation every little helps and we are very thankful for every amount of money you can afford to donate to help us solve this situation. If you don`t believe in donating money – we would be happy if you could support our laser cutting business by placing an order in our Etsy shop:
Also, if you are into an art, you can support us by purchasing one of Kristine`s paintings. All of them are painted here in our countryside house, inspired by the beauty and peacefulness of nature that we are surrounded of.

Like in all love stories there is always a struggle at some point. But the main thing is to never give up and fight for your love till the end. So we are fighting for our dream house and if you can and feel in your heart that you need to – please support us with donations or purchases from our shops.
