I'm a Northern California girl with a love for the ocean, beached in Columbia, MO dreaming about the waves.

I love to create beautiful toys and clothes to keep my daughter happy and to entertain us both. Lily seems to have inherited my love of animals as some of her first words were dog (pretty standard), whale, gorilla, rhino, polar bear, owl, lion, tiger, and hippo (not so standard). I started designing plush animals and clothes to go with some of Lily's favorite words and it has blossomed into a shop as I decided to share our favorites with others. I love knowing a little about the people I am creating for so that I can make their items more personal…

All of my plush items are made using repurposed fabrics (from denim to wool) and lovingly constructed from my own designs. Each plush toy is unique and has surprise embellishments taken from the original clothing items (beautiful stitching, a fun tag, a touch of suede).

Each of my clothing pieces has a hand drawn design applied to it using a dye resist technique and is then hand dyed using bright high quality fiber reactive dyes.

I love designing, drawing, sewing, scrapbooking, and crafting and I can't seem to stay away from the animal themes. Mostly I just love to make unique, high quality items that I think my family and friends will love, and I hope that others enjoy them too!
