Meet My Friends

Meet my friends - the people who inspire me, the people who lead me closer to Christ through the use of their gifts and talents. This website isn't just about Rough 2 Rustic. It's about sharing the love of Christ with the world. These people listed here do just that in their own unique ways.
I will continue to add to this page so come back often to discover other small businesses.

Pycnocline - Megan Altenritter

I create bleach dyed tea towels and shirts for children and adults. I feature designs that are Catholic or aquatic creatures: two things that I am very passionate about! All designs are drawn, cut, and bleached in house by yours truly. I also hand dye all of my tea towels by hand before bleach dyeing them. My bleach dyeing method creates a permanent, bold design that is completely unique! 

Inside Out Training - Camille San Souci 

Hey friends! My name is Camille San Souci, and I own and operate Inside Out Training where I work as a certified fitness trainer, with my specialty being prenatal and postpartum. While training is my career, truly I am a wife and a Mama. My husband Nick and I live in Montana with our four kiddos - Lilia, Evangeline, Raphael and Ignatius.
I am probably not the typical trainer on the block as my ultimate goal for you as your trainer is not the perfect body composition, but rather WELLNESS from the inside out. I want your HEART to be literally and figuratively well.
This is why I have created my online health and fitness program called "More Than Sweat" named such because I believe that exercise is so much more than just sweat, more than just the physical. 
MTS is intended to give you all the physical tools necessary for living a healthy lifestyle: 
- An app based exercise program that has several different versions for beginner, low impact, prenatal, postpartum, diastasis recti, advanced, runner and more
- Nutrition guidance to make healthy eating as doable and enjoyable as possible...recipes, quick and easy snacks, practical tips, etc. 
- Deep core education, training and technique to strengthen the pelvic floor and the rest of the deep core muscles. This will help prevent/heal diastasis recti and stress urinary incontinence
- Accountability via message and private Facebook group to give you personal guidance and support
But my true prayer is that it will help you do health and fitness in the way that God intended, pleasing and honoring Him and bringing you wellness both body and soul.

A Novel Pursuit - Danielle Jones

I'm Danielle Jones, owner and operator of A Novel Pursuit. A Novel Pursuit was born from my love of all things pretty, planners, and books. In the shop, you will find many different styles of planner stickers, but the most popular are the Catholic liturgical stickers, also known as Saintly Celebrations. 
I live in Montana with my husband and 5 children. We like to think we live on a small farm with our 9 chickens, 3 dogs, 3 cats, and 2 horses occupying some of the acreage. I graduated from Benedictine College with a degree in English, and I originally hail from Texas where I grew up in a family of 6 children. Michelle of Rough 2 Rustic is one of my dear sisters, and we often talk business, but many of our hours on the phone have been spent talking faith and family.

The Catholic Woodworker - Jonathan Conrad

I’m Jonathan Conrad, the Catholic Woodworker, and I make spiritual weapons built for battle.  I’m married to my dream girl, and we’ve been blessed with three boys.  I always thought it was my job to teach them how to be a man, but I think I learn more from them than they do from me.  The rosary is the weapon of our time, and it is my mission to help men around the world pray the rosary daily.  I think the reason the rosary is so powerful is because if we keep praying it, eventually it leads us to the foot of the cross.  This is where we belong, and that's why I make and sell beautiful heirloom crucifixes and home altars.  We all need a space for Christ on our calendar, in our homes, and in our hearts.  
My favorite rosary right now is our St. Joseph rosary with ebony hardwood beads (pictured here). My other favorite product of ours is the Home Altar which you can find  on my website.

Meredith is a wife and a mother of 4 little ones with no. 5 due on Christmas Day. After the loss of two babies she sought consolation in the Divine Mercy Chaplet and later St. Faustina's Diary. She now strives to spread the grace associated with the Divine Mercy message and devotion on Instagram @dailydivinemercy. She prays the Divine Mercy Chaplet live daily at 3 o'clock central for the hour of Mercy. You are welcome to bring your intentions and join the daily Chaplet anytime! Jesus, we trust in you! 
31Four makes modern jewelry that celebrates the beauty and mystery of our Catholic heritage. Each carefully crafted design represents a character or a chapter from the redemptive story of Christianity.

In the chaos of the day-to-day and amidst suffering great and small, we hope our jewelry can offer a delicate symbol of hope—reminding us all of who we are, where we came from and the great promise of salvation.
Jay Ross holds an MFA from the University of Central Florida. Jay and his wife Angie are Co-Founders of 31Four, Artisan Jewelry--a Catholic design and manufacturing studio based in the Orlando area. They are teaching the trade to their four children, who will be fourth generation jewelers.

I have strong devotion to the Holy Spirit, and constantly pray for His guidance in both my personal and business life. Come, Holy Spirit!
