About

Handmade finger puppets to foster wonder and, of course, smiles!

Kendrick Storytime, formally K.R. Finger Puppets, began after my baby, Kendrick, passed away. During his hospital stay, his dad would read him poems (Robert Louis Stevenson's The Land of Counterpane was our favourite), rhymes, and a lot of A.A. Milne's works.

After he passed away, our home became very quiet. We had become accustomed to the beeping machines at the hospital. I needed something to keep myself busy, and at the same time birthdays for our nieces, nephews, and god children were fast approaching (not to mention Christmas). I made them each a collection of finger puppets with hope to inspire them to dream, imagine, and create their own stories. Making finger puppets just happens to be a natural connection during the time we've spent with Kendrick, and my love of creating and sewing.

Today I have a son and a daughter. After I spend half a day organizing and tidying up my studio, I enjoy watching them undo all my work in under 10 minutes. I can't stop them—there's too much laughter in the air.
