Fun new item - my sons love these! This kid-friendly wallet is perfect for your growing child - it measures 4" x 3" and features a zippered pouch for change, two easy card slots, and a bill fold, plus two bonus pockets for little treasures and keepsakes.
I am so excited to offer you a new tool for custom orders! I put together a sampling of *some* of the fabric that I have in stock, to inspire you in creating custom items. And if you don't see a fabric you like, I *never* mind a trip to the fabric store!
After many months of requests for affordable 100% cotton toys, I'm finally doing it! These fantastic fabric stacking rings are available in 100% cotton - no polyester whatsoever! Washable, soft, (chewable), brightly colored, and plastic-free! RTS now!

About

Sharing brightly colored joy & delight in each project!

I received my first sewing machine when I was 7 years old, and have never stopped sewing or crafting since! My mom, who must have known that this was a deeper love than fleeting 7 year old whims, invested in a "grown-up" machine for me that kept me going for the next 23 years! But even as I've upgraded machines and refined my skills, my delight in making things with my hands has never faded - I still get great joy from seeing a project take shape.

I am a work-at-home mama to two adorable boys, S (almost 4) and E (2.5), and a sweet baby girl, R (2 mo), who keep me constantly busy, but in my "spare time" my crafting love has found a new outlet in creating brightly colored projects for my kiddos and others! My oldest constantly says "Mama make you a cool new project!!" with overwhelming delight! (He thinks that all the products I make must be for him, and is only appeased when I tell him that they're for other boys and girls to play with!) Both boys provide hard-core testing grounds for me for all products that I make - for durability, fun, and appeal - and I don't sell any children's products that I wouldn't feel comfortable with my own children using.

My store was born out of a desire to share the joy and delight of those crafts with others - and help out just a little bit with my family's income at the same time. My shop is named for my kiddos - after S and E's constant companions, a stuffed elephant named "Murph" and a stuffed moose named "Moose" - whimsical, brightly colored play-things that bring great joy and delight! It is my hope that what you find here will also bring you and your families joy and delight as well.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or custom requests - I love what I do, and am happy to help you in any way that I can!
