Creative gifts for creative people

At Our Little Messes, we love to support creativity -- from drawing and coloring to reading and writing. With our selection of unique, handmade products, we aim to provide creative gifts for creative people. Everything in our store is handmade by the two of us. We design, make, and ship all of our products ourselves.

As a mother of three, my focus has long been on raising happy, balanced children.  Any parent can appreciate how much time our children spend waiting on us… whether at doctors’ offices, running errands, or at a restaurant table.  Often, we entertain them with electronic games and smart phones, and forget the joy they can find from drawing on a paper  table cloth instead.  Our art toys give kids a way to tote around an entire world of robots, princesses, or monkeys, or maybe even robot monkey princesses!  Children love to express themselves through art! Our customers appreciate the high quality supplies and workmanship that go into every handmade toy, and love paging though our store full of fun fabrics looking for the perfect match for their own little artist.  Our art toys don't have a touch screen or battery, they don't light up or beep, but they still manage to hold a child’s entire imagination.  It truly makes the perfect gift for a creative child of any age.

Sketching, writing in a journal, or reading a great book can be a way to escape the stresses of daily life. Why not do all of those things in style? We use gorgeous fabrics in a huge variety of colors, themes, and patterns so you are sure to find something that speaks to you.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
