About

Where It All Began

- The Early Years -
I grew up in a creative family who love to draw and paint. I followed in their footsteps at an early age and later began dabbling in other crafts. I started creating children's toys and art about ten years ago, but I love working on just about any style of craft or medium.

- Finding My Niche -
A neighbor of mine asked me to make peg people characters for her children. I hadn't heard of peg people at the time, but I figured I'd give it a try. They were such a hit, that soon word of mouth travelled around town. I began selling them and other handmade items at local craft fairs, and my business grew quickly. Then one day someone suggested I sell on Etsy, and now, poof---here I am! I run my business solely from home in a little nook I created in my basement...but really you'll find me painting on the couch in the living room ;)

- Everyday Life -
Juggling life is pretty hard these days. I'm a mom of two wonderful children who are my biggest inspiration. I’m a college student studying Veterinary Technology, and I also work as a baker (plus running my online store).

- Natural Products -
I'm happy to make products that aren't made up of harsh chemicals and plastics. I use all natural wood, AP Certified non-toxic paints and varnishes so my products are safe for your little ones to handle.

-Last But Not Least -
I'd like to thank each and every one of my customers for their business and support. I couldn't have done it without you!
