Announcement   I am currently caught up on custom orders. I require at least a month before the wedding date before you place your order. All US wedding sets are shipped USPS Priority. All orders are processed in the order they are received. If you need a set sooner, please message me to check availability.

Peg people are now available from Fireweed Lane! Need a custom peg created for a special occasion? Contact me, I'm more than happy to fulfill your request. All pegs are hand painted by me in my kid-friendly, smoke free home in Alaska. My sons love playing with the superhero pegs, my nieces love their princess pegs. They are great for imagination play, broadening their horizons and their minds.

Custom orders are my favorite and I look forward to working on your custom design request. Bridal sets, special birthdays, or just a custom portrait of your family that your little one can play with, peg people make wonderful gifts that will last for generations.

Check us out on Facebook at www.facebook.com/fireweedlane for new designs or glimpses into the behind the scenes.

About

A long journey...

I was always the art girl in school. Voted "most likely to be an art teacher". Unfortunately, life gets in the way and at 19 I joined the US Navy. I lived overseas mostly, my favorite being 2 years in Italy. After 8 years of service I was medically discharged with metal rods in my back. But I always keep my art with me. I travelled with watercolor sets when I visited Venice and I studied Michelangelo in Rome. After I got out of the military I adopted two beautiful baby boys, twin brothers. And life changed again. Shortly after they were born, my parents, my brother, my kids and I moved from Alabama to Alaska to start a new chapter in our lives. My love for quilting took off and I became a fabricholic. But that is true of any quilter. Just recently, I have been able to pick up my brushes again and get back in the saddle. What better canvas than a 3.5" peg that can become anything a child (or adult) desires? My sons love playing with the superheroes and there's always a request for a new hero or villain.

Hand painted peg people are growing in popularity as a great stimulant for natural imaginative play for little ones. Increase their fun time and imagination boundaries as they are in complete control of their world of little people. The inspiration for many of the items you see in the shop comes from my desire to encourage kids to not rely on electronics for play time. This desire, along with the desire to include art on such a tiny canvas, led to the creation of my first peg people.

Amazingly peg people now have even more uses. A lot of people want to use them for cake toppers, maybe for a birthday or wedding. Then they have a personal keepsake of such a joyous occasion.

One of my favorites though is to create a custom family. A keepsake for the little ones, kind of like a photo that you can play with. I can even include your furry babies in the family photo!

Let me create something special for you today!

Shipping
::::::::::DOMESTIC SHIPPING::::::::::::::::::
Most non-custom orders and In-stock items will ship via USPS first class mail with in 1-3 business days after purchase. Shipping may take slightly longer around holidays, for custom orders or for product that is not currently in stock. Please make certain that your Etsy address is correct and complete as the shipping label will print exactly as listed.

Insurance is not provided unless specifically asked for before the purchase is completed. Also, tracking information is provided for all domestic orders and
some international orders when available.

:::::::::::::::::::COMBINED SHIPPING:::::::::::::::::::::::::
We try very hard to catch multiple orders placed and combine and refund shipping for one provided one or both orders have not processed or shipped. If you place a second order before your first order has been marked as shipped please send us a convo to request the duplicate shipping charges be refunded as we are happy to do that whenever possible.

:::::::::SHIPPING UPGRADES:::::::::::::::::
We do offer the option of USPS priority shipping if requested before placing the order. Please convo prior to completing your order so shipping charges can be adjusted.

::::::::INTERNATIONAL AND APO SHIPPING::::::::
For packages shipped outside the US, please note that while your order will still process and ship within our 1-3 day time frame, you may experience significantly longer deliver times depending upon your location, sometimes as much as 3-6 weeks. During this time the USPS tracking system may not update past "Processed at USPS Origin Sort Facility" or "Electronic Shipping Info Received". This does not mean that your package has been lost or stalled. Tracking information generally will no longer update once a package leaves the US. International shipping can be a lengthy process and your patience is appreciated. Also, customers are responsible for any additional fees or taxes applied by their own county's customs or postal service. Residents of the UK may have up to a 20% tax charged on the value of their purchase over £15 by your customs plus handling fee from the Royal Mail - these fees are the purchasers responsibility to pay and are not assessed by Etsy or Fireweed Lane. We are pleased to offer international shipping, however it is the responsibility of the purchaser to know their countries customs, and accept the possibility of significant shipping times and possible addition taxes or fees.
