I started making the things I have in the Etsy store because I wanted the little folks in my life to have something special, made by me. I wanted it to be special enough that they would keep it around for their own small folk to love. Not to toot my horn, but I wanted to make things that my decendants would fight like wild weasels over (nicely fight). I've been captivated by someone else that made sweet childrens toys that have been saved and cherished and now are in the Victoria Museum in Australia. I found this image on the great blog Kickcan & Conkers and clicking on the links found an amazing story.
