So Sweet and Cute. This is for when my son starts loosing his teeth (not that I am in a rush for that to start happening!) I wanted him to have a special place to place his lost tooth and this little tooth fairy pillow is just perfect. My hope is that he will pass it down to his own children and so on..just lovely..THANK YOU YUKI!

Toys and gifts for the natural-minded parent
I grew up with a family of artists. As a child I attended and worked at crafts fairs year round. Naturally, I was taught to follow my love for creating.
I got a Master's degree in Educational Psychology and Research in 2008 and went on to teach Pre-K in an inner city school. I absolutely love being around children and watching them explore and learn. However, public school was not conducive to my inner feelings of how children should live and grow. It made me sad and unfulfilled to see and be a part of an environment full of children that were not allowed to have freedom in their learning and without ample time to explore and play.
It wasn’t until I was pregnant with my daughter and doing research for alternative education philosophies that I discovered the amazing world of Waldorf Education and Rudolph Steiner.
This was an eye-opening experience for me and the Waldorf philosophy seemed so congruent to what I believe is important to a child’s learning and life.
I soon began creating my own toys for my daughter. This past February, I made my Etsy debut with my shop, Lavender and Ladybugs. I finally have a place to share and sell the gifts and toys that I love to create. I use only natural materials and I often try to use upcycled materials as well. My shop includes items such as cuddle dolls that are made in the Waldorf tradition, needle felted animals and accessories for nature tables, and other gifts such as treasure bags and lavender drawer sachets.
The toys I offer are open-ended and help encourage imaginative play. They are made of natural materials and have a warm and inviting feeling to them.
The gifts and accessories that I create are perfect for the naturally-minded momma. They are also created using 100% natural materials and ingredients.
All are made with love and dedication to being as natural and eco-friendly as possible! Thank you for supporting my small business!
Around the web
I love making crafts, reading books, working in the garden, and cooking. All the items in my store reflect my love for living a natural and simple way of life while appreciating the beauty in the world around us.
