|Etsy: Your place to buy & sell all things handmade
Meet Dayanara of Pin Pon :
A native Chicagoan, I studied art at Columbia College. I’ve always been artistic and creative. As a former Early Childhood Educator, I understand the need for open-ended play, simplicity, and nurturing, in a childs life. In the beginning of my doll making adventures, I made Art Dolls that were sold all over the U.S. in Boutiques and Galleries, but my love for children ,children’s books and toys made me shift gears. I now design one of a kind goodies, work as a manager/buyer for a specialty toy store, and I am an art/community activist in my beloved city (Chicago).
Soft dolls, animals,and imaginary friends made of natural and re-purposed fabrics, mostly cottons, wools and linens. Inspired by the Spanish lullaby my mom sang to me as a child I created one of a kind, original plaything for the young and young at heart. Thank you and I hope you enjoy my line of dolls and toys.
PS. Dayanara just had a birthday – so maybe a few more birthday wishes are still coming along !
