About Us

A little about how Green Roof Farms DIY came to exist

My name is Candice Leonard and I am the owner operator of Green Roofs Farm DIY located in Acme, Washington. I have worked in State Government for many years as an Executive Manager down in Oregon. I spent 20 years managibg Information Technology(IT). Earlier in 2017 my husband accepted a position in Bellingham and we decided to relocate to the area. I was at a crossroads where I could continue to be a public servant or invest myself in a business I had personal passion around and serve my community in a different capacity. I decided to start my own business…Green Roof Farms DIY

I created Green Roof Farms DIY to provide services such as digitizing designs and logos for businesses, churches, schools, colleges, clubs and organizations of all types. (Digitizing is the process of putting art and text into a design file for cutting out iron on or vinyl as well as setting the stitches for embroidery.) These digital designs are put on our website for purchase and download.  Once downloaded the design is then stitched out by folks with embroidery machines.  I also lead training through our Green Roof Farms DIY YouTube Channel as well as the Green Roof Farms FaceBook Group.

In late 2018…. I returned to work for Washington State Ferries as a manager to help get my Wrist Wallets USA brand off the ground.  I still continue to invest my private time into my passion for making designs and stitching with people all over the world.   I also received my first patent for a wearable wrist wallet which is made in Acme, Washington under our brand Wrist Wallets USA/Made in Acme.  We are a USA proud company bringing to the market place a useful product which is great to buy for yourself and others.   Our product uses nearly all USA made raw materials that we craft into a sellable product, check us out at www.wristwalletsusa.com.   The packaging and shipping is done from Elmira, Oregon in partnership with my Sister Maria Rathburn making us a family strong woman ran company!
