I am a stay at home mom that loves to sew and create during my free time.

I started my shop back in 2009 when our first son was born. I love creating during my little windows of free time and have always enjoyed the creative community found here on Etsy. I took a couple years off after our third was born, but have been asked often when I would reopen my shop. I missed this outlet of creative space while my shop was closed and with my husbands, and family's encouragement I am so excited to open it back up!

What brings me the most joy creatively is making things that make our home feel more joyful and my children's playtime more magical. I love to make things that help their imaginations grow and give them the opportunity for lots of imaginative play. My hope is that the items that you find in my shop will do the same for you in your home by creating special places for you and your families to create your own magical memories.

Thank you for stopping by and looking around. I hope you enjoy what you find.

You can also find me at my blog,

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

Items in the shop are all washable, but for best results follow the care instructions on your tag.
Play Canopy: Wash with mild detergent in cold water on gentle cycle. Tumble dry on low heat and for best results remove just before completely dry.
Floor Cushions : wash cover in mild detergent in cold water, hang to dry.
Book Slings : for best results spot clean, although you may also wash the book sling in mild detergent in cold water and hang to dry. Iron from the back side.

Custom and personalized orders

At this time I am only offering the items for sale in my shop and am not accepting custom orders. If you would like to put in a request for a future item to be carried in my shop please feel free to tell me!

Sizing details

Canopies are 8 feet tall. If you have a taller ceiling or want your canopy to sit lower on the floor you will need to lower the canopy with a small chain or rope to the desired height.

Floor Cushions covers are 28 inches across and vary from 7-9 inches tall. They will need to be filled with stuffing. I recommend a poly fil stuffing 32-48 ounces of stuffing.

Book Slings come in 3 sizes, mini 22 inches, small 34 inches, and large 46 inches.

Wholesale availability

At this time we offer wholesale on our book slings and floor cushions. If you would like more information please email me and I can send you a line sheet.

Are brackets included with my book sling?

There are two sections in my shop. One for book slings, and one for book slings with wooden brackets. If you prefer to purchase your own brackets you should select a book sling from the book sling section. If you would like brackets included you will want to shop in the brackets with book sling section. Our brackets are made in Haiti by an ethical company that we are closely connected with and excited to work with. We are so excited to be able to offer custom book sling brackets designed and made specifically with our book slings in mind!
