About

Whirling Personalized Party Pretties since Oct. 2007.

Here at pinwhirls, I whirl printable whimsical party pretties including our most popular party pinwheels. I'm Shana - mother, wife, and party supply shop owner. In that order. I have three sons - yes 3! Gabriel Cooper (6), Finley Baxter (4), and Sawyer Tannen (1). I'm married to Roger. So, I'm constantly surrounded by everything boy - cars, video games and potty words. This is my creative outlet for all things girly (since I don't get much of that at home).
....
Our history:
Crossroads Cottage, an online home décor shop, was launched in October of 2007 by Shana Dreher. Spurred by a love for and background in event, meeting, and party planning, Shana began adding custom party accessories to CrossroadsCottage.biz and opened her Etsy shop in January of 2008. One of the first party items added were mini cupcake topper pinwheels, later named pinwhirls. Within months clients were requesting other custom pinwheel items including handheld, yard, and pinwheel party hats and place cards. These items were initially assembled with commercial scrapbook papers, but by early fall she learned that she could better serve the custom needs of clients by altering digital papers and printing them in house. By late fall the personalized party pinwhirls began taking up too much space on her existing website so pinwhirls.com {a divison of crossroads cottage, llc} was launched in December of 2008. Along the way diy pinwheel items and kits were also added to the site, for those clients on a budget. In addition to pinwheels, personalized party hats, banners, pennants, tags, labels, cupcake wrappers, invites, and more were also added to the shops. With 1,000 exclusive papers available, plus the ability to alter or create custom papers, I could whirl my papers into personalized products for anything from intimate birthday parties, to upscale weddings, to large corporate events and trade shows. In November 2012 my second son was born and I decided to take 3 months off to truly stay home with him. That 3 months turned into over 4 years. Here it is early 2017. Another little boy was added to our home in late 2015. He's a little over one and finally sleeping through the night (yay!) and also naps on schedule. I now have (some) time to slowly start-up the business. This time around, I'm keeping it small and manageable (hopefully).

PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASING OUR PINWHEEL GUIDES:

•WARNING! Pinwheels/pinwhirls are not toys and should not be utilized as such. They are for decor purposes only. Please keep operable pinwheels away from small children under the age of 3 or children who mouth toys as they contain small and sharp parts which may become dangerous and pose a choking or health hazard if pinwheel is disassembled. As our pinwheels are assembled using a pin and small beads, even with children under 12, parental supervision is necessary as to avoid injury. Crossroads Cottage/pinwhirls will not be held responsible for injuries sustained.

•Although our operable pinwheels are able to spin, they will not spin as easily as the traditional metallic pinwheels as the paper used is a heavier cardstock. As with all pinwheels an adequate amount of wind is required for movement. They will not operate with merely a slight breeze nor will they operate indoors without either a fan on hi or blowing on them. The direction of wind also plays a part as to whether they will rotate independently. If you are having trouble getting them to spin outdoors in the wind, rotate the angle of the pinwheel. All of our pinwheels are made to rotate by blowing on them. It is best to blow on them from a side angle rather than directly forward onto them.

•Each of my pinwheels is tested to ensure that they will spin before they are packaged. If your pinwheels arrive and they are having difficulty spinning, parts of the pinwheels may have shifted during packaging or shipment. To correct this problem, carefully move the pin (metal) portion of the pinwheel. Slightly moving this portion of the pinwheel (either left or right, or up or down) usually corrects this problem.

•Pinwheels will not withhold strong pulls on parts, bending, or being crushed. Since some parts are also constructed with cardstock, these pinwheels will not hold up to water nor can they withstand grease including that from icing. If inserting pinwheel handles or pegs into icing, be sure that paper does not touch icing as the grease will create oil stains on the paper. In addition, we will not be held responsible for pinwheels that pose a danger to users because of this disassembly.

Please note: Since they are made with papers, the pinwheels are not water or weatherproof. The papers are also not oil resistant so please keep the paper portion of the pinwheel away from icings, etc.

ENJOY!
