The Joy Of Making...and being surrounded by toys

The products that I have made for my shop all have a tie to family. I re-taught myself to sew after years of not using the skill (thanks Mom for those lessons you paid for long ago!) because I wanted to make a quilt for my new baby. I am a registered dietitian by profession, but have taken a step back from full-time work in that field to spend time with my children. I have been able to be the "soccer mom" I always wanted to be. I also found that I really like to sew and craft. Who knew? I didn't!

One Christmas I wanted to make wool felt partridges for my siblings that were similar to ones my grandma had on her tree. My search brought me to etsy and a pattern for beautiful wool hand-made ornaments from Larissa Holland of mmmcrafts. I ended up making her turtledoves out of wool felt and I loved the entire process of of hand-embroidering, hand sewing, and creating something beautiful. It made me happy.

That led to making soft toys for my children, nieces and nephews, and friends. I realized that I loved creating the patterns for toys myself so I could determine how I wanted the animals/dolls to look and what expressions I wanted them to have. I felt (and still feel) joy as each little creature comes to life, figuratively of course. I also feel joy in seeing people enjoy the items I have made.

I found myself ordering cotton fabric and wool felt just to have on hand so that I could make something cute if I wanted. I'm that way with baking, too: I must have a variety of ingredients on hand to bake what I want when I want.

I have a little blog as part of this venture (ahappycarrot.com) to talk about my love of baking things--that's an entirely different subject-- and my love of making crafts.

Then with the help of family once again, namely my sister who is a talented graphic designer, I got brave enough to open shop. I have slowly been adding to the shop and have tons of ideas in my noggin' just waiting to come out.

I am now surrounded by toys, and who doesn't love soft toys?

That's how this venture started. Thanks for being part of it!
