THE STORY:
One day I woke up and decided I would have a completely handmade Christmas. It was spring. I didn't know how to sew, crochet, embroider, woodwork or any of those other skills that come in handy if you want to make gifts!
So I learned how to crochet and sew. I googled for ideas. I asked for ideas. I went to the library. I got hooked on Etsy.
By September, I had a few things down and started creating. I was new, so I was slow and it took me 2-4 hours every night from September to December to get it all done. But I did it!

THE STORE:
Now, I love making things, and I love the things other people make.
My shop is full of things I love to make and give.
My toys are made of natural materials and made to encourage lots of creative, open ended play. If it can only do one thing, it's not a toy!…

I work mostly with cotton fabric and yarn and local wool roving for stuffing. I even use cotton thread so most toys are natural right down to the smallest detail, which means they are safe too.
I love to do custom orders, and am happy to tweak any of my listings so they better suit you. I ship worldwide and offer wholesale prices on larger quantities (20 pcs and up) for boutiques, children's stores and party favors.
