New Shop Open for Business

Well, it has been my intention since Christmas time to get a new shop up and running. I finally got around to bringing this idea to fruition. I still have a ways to go and product that needs concocting, but it is a start.

After all of the toy recalls and parents' wanting safer more natural things for their children to play with I remembered one of my favorite things as a child - homemade play dough! To this day the smell of the salty stove top toy makes me smile. My mom made it for my brother and I when we were little. She would squish it into a plastic hamburger patty maker to fashion perfect fat disks and then wrap them in plastic wrap. Each of us would get a stack of our own. I remember feeling so lucky to have a mom who would make me my own special play dough - none of that store bought stuff!

There are great recipes out there for other homemade crafty toy supplies and I plan on trying a few. In the near future I hope to list finger paints as well. I hope you'll take a look at my new Etsy shop and let me know what you think!

Today I had the pleasure of stuffing the swag bags (below) with samples of your awesome playdough. Had to check it out, of course. I can hardly wait till the Edmonds PSIA Craft Show to pick some up for the grandson and I to play with!
