Tell us about your business.After having my first baby, I left my job as an accessory designer for a large children's company to start a home based business. I started with mobiles and wall hangings I made for my baby and the business grew from there. As my son became interested in new things I would dream up new ideas. I love natural, nontoxic materials and bold clean design. My toys are nice to look at, fun to play with and built to last. Everything is designed, assembled, and shipped my my home studio on the banks of the Willamette River in view of the end of the Oregon Trail. Once I have both boys in school I am looking forward to having more time to dedicate to working and expanding my wholesale business.
What makes your business stand out?The spirit of my toys are a direct result of my surroundings here in the Pacific Northwest. Everything I make is filled with Oregon pride.
What's the best business advice you've received?Keep it simple and be yourself!
