I couldn't do without the internet, facebook, or Pinterst. I wouldn't have a business on Etsy without technology and I love the idea of old meeting new, keeping the past alive, and reusing and remaking anything I can.

I am working to make our store a zero waste store. I use even the smallest piece of our eco friendly felt to make finger puppets and other small items, I use leftover pieces of fabric to make small crayon rolls to sell at a lower price.

There is a huge rain storm and the small girls are afraid that Santa will not be able to cross the river. Mr. Edwards a family friend shows up at the front door wet and shivering from crossing the freezing flooding river with a paper package tied with twine saying that he ran into Santa in town and promised to deliver the presents, The girls are so excited to get a metal drinking cup, a candy stick, a small cake, and a shiny penny, Mom is overwhelmed and brought to tears when he hands her another paper package tied with twine and inside is 9 sweet potatoes.

I have named my store "IN BROWN PAPER" my items are made referencing the days when simple items made everyone so happy. Our items are made of felt and fabric and are made to last forever. I use 2014 technology to make wonderful fun learning items that will last for generations.
