About

Reducing, Reusing and Amusing Since 2005

It's true. I have always thought toys were cool--especially vintage toys. When I had my son (nickname Beeper) I started create things for him, then I started making toys as gifts, and then I started this shop when I discovered such a lovely response to what I was making. I have been reducing, reusing and amusing through my Etsy shop for 10+ years now.

I love thrift stores and from the very beginning what I have been making has been made with used and thrifted materials--all wool sweaters, stripey cotton tees, brightly colored towels, fuzzy cashmere sweaters, funky patterned scarves, men's tweed suit coats--because I want to find uses for what already is out there and that makes sense to me. I also love to find uses for the little bits and scraps of other materials I have left over from making--very little goes to waste around here.

Growing up I loved to play with teeny dime store trinkets and fisher price toys and today those same toys are my creative inspiration--vintage Fisher Price little people are sort of my muse.

I also have a blog I have been on extended hiatus from, but it is filled with photos from my life, links to other artists and things I find inspiring and has lots of FREE projects and patterns (and a recipe or two) so you too can make your own. It is sort of my creative journal. You can visit my blog here: http://chezbeeperbebe.blogspot.com/

I am working toward making this my full time job because it is all I want to do. Thank you for being interested--it absolutely means the world to me.

    Owner, Toy Maker

    I love to hand-make toys and teeny things from secondhand stuff. In between making (or sometimes while), I listen to a lot of vinyl and drink whiskey. At times, I cook a meal, grow some veggies or camp. But this is what I want to be when I grow up.
