Mini Wednesday – Simply Playing

Meet Ann of Simply Playing:


I’m a stay at home mom with a 4 1/2 year old son who inspired me to begin making toys. We are a Waldorf family so my toys are open ended, made of all natural materials and meant to inspire imagination play.

I make crowns and wands for your young prince or princess to dress up in. Gnomes and cats for a bit of play acting or grasping young hands. My toys are vehicles for your child’s imagination. They are made of all natural wool yarn and wool felt that has been plant dyed by fellow etsian MamaJudes. The plant dye creates a vibrant almost “living” color that I find perfect for children’s toys. As toys are created to be played with, all of mine need good homes with young children to love them!

Mini Wednesday – Ent Works

Meet Alicia of Ent Works:

A long time lover of dirt, I defines myself as a teacher, mother, artisan, wife, scientist, tree huger, rock collector, friend, and nerd who’s seemingly not outgrown her fondness of frogs.

EntWorks is based of my personal love of nature. Each item is made of organic matter that has been grown, harvested, recycled, upcycled, or salvaged to produce a little quirky, USEFUL item to be loved and shared.

Mini Wednesday – Driaa

Etsy
driaa



Meet  Driaa :

I am a doll maker, and mother of three little girls. I sew when I have some spare time. I live in a small village in the hills of the Galilee, and love to garden and grow vegetables as well.
I love to make dolls – all kinds of dolls and animal, trying out new techniques and patterns.

Sometimes I repeat a pattern, and sometimes I only make one doll of that kind.
I also like to sew other things, so check out my shop from time to time, to see what I’ve been doing this week.  I use new, vintage and second hand fabrics, but try not to mix new and used in the same project. So please check out the item description to learn about the fabric source.

ArmadilloDreams



Meet Dustin and Amanda of Armadillo Dreams :

Armadillo Dreams is a husband/wife shop run by Dustin and Amanda Cowell. Everything we sell is made from natural materials, is friendly for little hands and is handmade with love! We believe it’s important for children to have high quality, natural, simple toys that they can dream, imagine and play with. We know how hard it is to find wooden toys on a budget, so we’re working hard to keep our prices low so everyone can afford fun natural toys for their children. We love what we do, it is our passion.

Amanda also runs Violet (http://violet.etsy.com) since 2005 and Little Vintage Violet (http://littlevintageviolet.etsy.com) since 2008.

Mini Wednesday – Earth Grown Crayons

Etsy
earthgrowncrayons



Meet Melissa of  Earth Grown Crayons :

I live in beautiful Minnesota with my husband and three children. Besides making crafts, I enjoy reading, running, and spending time outdoors.

Why soy crayons? Soy is an all-natural, renewable resource that is one-hundred percent biodegradable – making it an earth-friendly choice for kids. Soy beans have been a part of my life since I can remember. Growing up I spent time on my grandparents farm in rural Minnesota. I watched my grandpa plant and harvest soy beans in the fields behind his farm. Now, many years later, I’m making my own creations from soy, inspired by my love for animals and other living things.

My Earth Grown Crayons are made from soy beans free of herbicides and pesticides, and grown on American soil. I use only non-toxic pigments.Crayons come packaged in recycled or reusable materials and are hand-made in a home that strives to be loving of the earth in every way.

Mini Wednesday – Wild Child Woolies

Etsy
WildChildWoolies


Meet Angela of Wild Child Woolies :

I am Angela, stay at home/work at home/homeschooling (I guess we’re HOME a lot!) mom of 5 awesome kids. Wild Child Woolies was born in 2007 after baby number four sold me on the wonderful world of cloth diapering with wool. I’m a 3rd generation ‘crafter’ and have always made things to sell in one form or another. It only seemed natural to combine my love of wool, my love of crafting and my entrepreneurial spirit.

Wild Child Woolies is about fun and unique wool clothing that is both fun and functional. It makes a once dreaded chore (changing the baby’s diaper) into something fun by covering little behinds in bright and cheery wool.

Meet Seven Acre Toys :

As life long makers it was only natural that when our friends started having kids we skipped the registries, and went straight to the wood shop. After much coaxing from friends and friends of friends, we are now sharing some of our favorite baby gift creations with you.

At Seven Acre Toys we strive for a higher quality toy. We are committed to environmentally sustainable business practices, and delivering safe imaginative toys to the little ones in your life. For that reason we use no paints, dyes, or film finishes.
