Welcome to my handmade corner of the world.
I am so excited to open my own website for Tree Head Art! It has been a goal of mine for some time now, and I finally got to fulfill it. A new year, a new website, and a new business.
A History of Tree Head Art
I first started creating peg dolls about a year and a half ago. I was browsing Pinterest randomly (not really, but we can pretend I don’t spend hours there) and saw a collection of farm animal peg dolls. I thought they were awesome. I was looking for a present for my niece at the time and thought they would be perfect for her. A week later, I had completed my first set of peg dolls. And I was hooked.
Soon after I was creating animals for my own sons, then characters from their favorite TV shows and books. A good friend asked me to make some for her daughter, then another friend, and soon I was
making a mess making a small income to help support my family doing something that I loved.
I decided to try and open an Etsy shop next, and that is how Tree Head Art officially started. Through lots of mess making. (Trust me I get paint everywhere!)
Tree Head Art’s goal is to bring inspiration and creativity to young make believers and the young at heart. I believe that the peg dolls I create by hand can help inspire young children to create their own stories, and help us adults remember that it’s ok to be a kid sometimes. If I can bring a little joy and excitement to just one child or one adult, I feel like my job is done. I feel like I have accomplished something.
This is very important to me. In today’s age, where a screen is sometimes the only thing a person sees, they forget that they too can tell a story. Creative play for the child and the adult is (in my humble opinion) essential to the soul. I work hard to bring joy, quality, and imagination into ever piece I create.
What to Look Forward to in 2017
This year I am going to be releasing two special collections for you. (Check out what they are here) I am so excited for these two collections, and I hope you will like them as well. Also coming out in 2017 are some special sets that I am so excited for. I am not giving too much away, I want them to be a surprise! But if you join the Tree Head Art Tribe Newsletter, you will get a sneak peek of upcoming sets before anyone else. You also get access to special offers, coupons and access to peg dolls before public release, just sayin’!
What I Hope to Accomplish in 2017
My goals this year for Tree Head Art this are:
- Launch my website
- Continue to provide an income for my family
- Create 5 accessories for the peg dolls
- Release at least 2 new sets a month
- Grow my social reach (so you can find me!)
