Beautiful work - it can be fussy to work on this scale, and the skill is evident. I hope this little guy will bring some smiles to the recipient...

I filled an Easter basket with needle felted spring animals as a centerpiece for a spring fling shower. Unique and useable year after year. I am not fond of flowers on the table because I don't care for their fragrance around food. Thank you. Dietre

About

I channel my inner child daily.

I get inspiration from the natural world. I am fascinated by the many shapes and sizes of our fellow creatures, their unique habits and special roles in our complex world.

My goal is to incorporate those special features into my toys without turning the creatures into cartoon renditions of the originals, while creating playthings that will delight the giver and the recipient.

Before I was a toymaker, I was a day care provider for 10 years. I invited many children into my home over those years, creating an environment that stimulated imaginative play and encouraged the use of fine and gross motor skills. That means I let them play without a television or radio in the background, had a nice backyard for them to explore, and provided natural, gender neutral toys that inspired imaginative play.

Here is my youtube version of a classic story for young children:

I am proud to be a part of the handmade community and I value the personal interactions I have here on etsy.

Everything in my shop is designed, made, packaged and shipped by me.


I learned a lot of my sewing skills from my mom, who sewed a lot of our clothes.
Thanks Mom!!

    I make everything. I take all the photos and do all the designing, shipping, bookkeeping, procrastinating and dreaming.
