About TawnyBee

On Etsy since 2008

It all started with a stuffed penguin...

It was 2008. I was in the throws of some serious pregnancy hormones (although I didn't know it yet). Nesting had kicked in big time and I was busy sewing and baking up a storm.

I wanted to bring a smile to my husband's face, so I created Tux the Linux Penguin for him to bring to work. I gotta say - that little penguin was the cutest!

And A LOT of people thought so. One of my best friend's in the whole world said, "You should sell those on Etsy."

Etsy? What is Etsy?

I looked it up and found an entire community of makers like myself.

So I listed the penguin. And sold the penguin a few times over.

Then I listed some other stuff I had been making.

Then I had a baby.

Then I listed stuff that the baby liked.

Then I listed stuff that the baby's big brother liked.

Then I got married.

Then I listed stuff that I liked.

I also listed stuff that neighbours and friends liked when the mood struck me.

And sometimes I even listed stuff that my husband liked...

Like that little penguin that started it all.

Welcome to Tawny Bee. Whenever possible I like to concentrate on using upcycled and eco-friendly supplies while making my products. I'm a happy earth mama and would like to share my craft with you :D

Additional policies and FAQs
I would love to hear from independent handmade-loving stores looking for awesome eco-friendly items on their shelves.

I'm also willing to consider wholesale orders.

If you see an item in my shop, but want it in another style, colour, size, etc, I would love to hear from you. A custom order request can be made in this instance.
