This is beautiful! I love the detail in the ark and the animals, I'm sure this will bring many, many years of pleasure to the sweet little child that is receiving it.

About

Wood, Paint and Imagination

I've always been a maker. I came from a rural western family that perfected DIY in order to survive and I inherited this attitude, big time. I was taught all kinds of needlework early in life and still love to sew and knit, but learning to paint and work wood came much later. I'm a mostly self taught artist (with the help of tons of books) and I love making things for children that will delight their parents, too. Though I made things for my own kids and grandchildren and I'm sure I was always invited to baby showers because my gifts were so great, the idea of putting my creations out in the world didn't start until I fell in love with Etsy. I had been working in Human Resources (what I really did was fire people) and then lost my job about the same time I had a knee injury. It was the perfect time to make a huge change and start my shop. I've never been happier.

    I was raised on a cattle ranch in Montana, married a California beach boy, kept six children alive and well until they've become great adults. Now living in a cozy cottage in the middle of the very green state of Arkansas with that same beach boy who has encouraged me to buy more power tools and feeds my power sander addiction.
