What I Do
Get paint everywhere. Walls, clothes, children, everywhere!
I make hand painted peg doll characters and animals that inspire young maker believers and the young at heart. I don’t just make toys – I make stories, kings, thieves, heroes, villains, neurotic squirrels, and lazy lions. Handmade imagination.
I create unique toys and gifts that represent quality, quirkiness, and fun. (I seriously could not find another Q word!)
I make a gift that your child, mother, sister, best friend, husband, wife, partner….or you (everyone deserves to give themselves gifts whenever they can) can keep and treasure for a lifetime.
From my hands to yours, with love and a hint of magic. That’s a promise.
Why I Do It
I strive to translate all fun and joy in my daily life into each piece I create. Each paint stroke is infused with joy, inspiration and fun with the hopes that they will become part of child’s life and imagination.
I value magic. The amazement of Mother Nature, reading The Hobbit to my kids, watching a spider construct a web, and creating crazy stories with my peg dolls.
I aim to embed each peg doll with just a hint of magic. So when the pegs reach their final destination, they can inspire wonder, creativity, and curiosity in who ever they meet.

Who I Am
I grew up in a town just outside of Detroit, Michigan (USA). I currently live in the middle of nowhere, Denmark. I met my husband in 2011, at university in Northern Michigan. Not long after that we had our first son, got married, and I took a plane ride across the pond.
We have two sons, a ridiculously energetic dog, a small home, large garden, and a herd of hedgehogs as neighbors. My family loves to be outside in the forest, on the beach, running through corn fields and dancing in the rain. We strive to live a seasonal and sustainable lifestyle, while celebrating the magic around us (and creating a little bit of it now and again).
