Janelle Bridges' Profile

About

We are a family of six who live in a small town in Northern California. It's a 25 minute drive to the nearest Safeway, an hour and a half to the nearest mall, and two hours to the airport....that being said, we live in the country surrounded by big beautiful pine trees and oak trees and have lots of time to be crafty!

The man of the house is in charge of all the wooden creations. It helps having little ones to see what toys spark their interest! He is able to work in a large barn with all his building skills and come up with great ideas on new toys. He loves what he does!

The woman of the house makes all the wonderful fabric items, from blankets, nursing shawls, and aprons...sewing feels like therapy with a houseful of kids! She is always trying to come up with fun new things children and parents can enjoy…

Finally, the name "Mr Whale" comes from our son's small stuffed whale he has been attached to since he could walk. He takes it every where with him. He sleeps with him, plays with him, talks to him. It is so ratty and rugged, but oh' so loved! We decided that since he loved his "Mr. Whale" so much, we would name our shop the same in hopes that customers would love our shop as much as our son loves his whale.

We are here to help you and bring to you homemade, handcrafted items in the best way we can. So please let us know if there is anything you would like from us and we will do the best we can to please you.

Thank you for your interest and please take your time to look around our shop!
