ABOUT ME

JESSICA BENTSON

HOMESCHOOLING MOM, TOY-MAKING ENTHUSIAST, ARTS+CRAFTER

Waldorf toys have both enchanted me and felt completely inaccessible to me for the longest time. I would longingly scroll through Waldorf toy sites and mama artisan IG feeds and wish for a day that I could buy my kids those special toys. Until recently, it didn't occur to me that I could make them myself!

Ever since this realization, I have been excitedly making my 2 little boys Waldorf inspired handmade toys! I have a very long queue of toys I plan to make and I plan to share them all with you!

I have been into sewing and crafts my whole life, but even if you don't consider yourself a crafty pro, I promise you your kids will LOVE any scrappy-looking toy you make for them.

You will probably hear me say over and over, we're not trying to sell them on Etsy, we're just making toys for our kids! Let's not be too precious about it!

A tiny bit more about me...I like alone time and books and tea. I like being a nomad. I grew up in North Carolina, lived 6 years in Spain, 3 in California and 2 in Florida and I just moved back to North Carolina in the Asheville area. My Argentinian hubby is a talented photographer/videographer and this site wouldn't be possible without him and his fancy gear.

You can read about how I got the shooting star idea to create this site here.

I am so excited to share with you how to make toys for your little ones filled with MAGIC!
