Michael and Stephanie Goins from My Wonderful Walls in TN offer families a unique solution to their kids’ room decorating needs with wall stencils, stickers and canvas wall art.

Dragonfly Birdhouse
By Debbie Grimm at Tattered Pearls
Value $8.50

All items that Debbie from Tattered Pearls makes are handcrafted and one-of-a-kind (unless you request a custom order for multiples).  Debbie says she enjoys being creative and has fun working with a variety of materials. Her obsession with paper has led her to focus her energies as a decoupage artist.  She loves to shop for different papers, matching patterns and colors to create a unique item for you.  Debbie tries not to take life too seriously and some of that, for better or worse, may come through in what she creates. She is currently selling her items in a few local gift shops near her Albion, NY home as well as Etsy.

On this beautiful  11 ½ inch tall birdhouse, dragonflies flit around lacey purple, green, and blue flowers. A scalloped roof in matching colors completes the look.  This is a wooden birdhouse attached to a pedestal, painted royal blue and decoupaged. It is accented with two purple dragonflies and green Spanish moss. The decoupage and hand sanding give it a smooth finish, so the design almost looks painted on. Make sure to visit the rest of the Tattered Pearls shop to see what other decoupaged pieces Debbie has for you.

Tie-Dye Butterfly Wings
by Aimee P. at Flying Kiss Creations
Value $24

Aimee has been creative her entire life and when she became a mother her daughter provided her with amazing inspiration.  She opened up her shop in 2007 with the name Flying Kiss Creations when her baby learned how to give “flying kisses.”  Recently, Aimee re-opened her shop from her Southern California home with more children's items, primarily costume play wings made out of breezy, diaphanous fabrics. Aimee says the motto of her shop is "Heart Crafted - Hand Made" because for her, the art of creating and crafting begins with the heart.  She cherishes the creative process but what she loves most is the feeling that what she is making can potentially make a child very happy!   Most importantly, she can never put anything up for sale before getting the thumbs up and “flying kiss” from her number one creative consultant, customer, and quality control tester, her little girl.

These one of a kind tie-dye wings are great for pretend play for your garden loving girl. This listing is for one pair of handcrafted pink, purple and green wings in a super soft, cotton blend tie dyed jersey fabric and will come to you in a size small. Aimee has also graciously included a matching headband which may be purchased from her store separately. Wings are sewn with one large piece of fabric, embellished with either a crocheted butterfly or ribbon. Elastic bands attached to the back enable secure wear on the shoulders (backpack-style) and elastic bands at the end of each wing allow for easy hanging on wrists, keeping little hands free to tinker, play and fly! Visit Flying Kiss Creations for more beautiful butterfly, fairy and angel wings as well as ribbon crowns and more including custom orders.

Needle Felted Garden Snail
by Kristen Davis at Fox Wool Designs
Value $14

When Kristen was very young, the usual reply to "I wish I had 'x' was, "Well, why don't we make one ourselves?"  She soon became enchanted by fiber and the many possibilities it holds. Her felt creatures are inspired by many sources: the woods where she grew up, the fairy tales and fantasy stories she loves to read, the rhythms of the year in nature, legends of the past. Kristen counts her work most successful when it captures some of the wonder and imagination of childhood. She started selling her felt art at local craft fairs and to friends while she was in college. Several fellow artists recommended Etsy to Kristen and her shop which she runs from her Kentucky home grew from there.

This friendly felt garden snail would love to wander through your springtime nature table, add a pop of color to your garden themed kids’ room or hide in an Easter basket. He's about four inches long and made from purple and brown sheep's wool. Each snail is lovingly hand crafted with a process called needle felting. Kristen sculpts wool using a special barbed needle to mesh fibers together into felt. Wool has natural antimicrobial properties which make it resistant to mold and dust mites, and it is also naturally fire-resistant. This makes it an excellent material for children's toys but because needle felted creatures can be delicate, this toy is not suitable for the youngest children. Visit Fox Wool Designs on Etsy for more handcrafted wool felt creatures or convo Kristen about a custom order.

Summer Tree Sun Catcher
By Susana Rutherford at Firehorse Studios
Value $29.50

Stained glass has been a passion of Susana’s since childhood. While traveling in Europe the beauty of the stained glass windows in the great cathedrals struck her.

Susana also has formal training in fine arts and has combined that with twenty years of experience in glass for exceptional art pieces. From her studio in Charlottetown, PEI, Canada, Susana loves exploring light and color and though she may repeat some of her designs, you’ll never get exactly the same piece of art twice.

Her sun catchers like this beautiful summer tree are all made by hand from glass she gets from the Spectrum Glass Company which is very environmentally conscious. This sun catcher measures 5 inches in diameter and is made with glass and copper. It will come to you in a gift box, with a suction cup for hanging and will look lovely in your Girly Garden Room or any room in your house with a little sunshine.

Premium Organic Blanket/Play-mat
by Lauren Chenfu at Pillobebe
Value $70

When Lauren’s little one (Jaden) was born, she had a hard time finding perfect baby-safe items for him on the market. He wanted to crawl on the floor and put his hands in his mouth and as a first time mommy, she was a little horrified by this. Not able to find high-quality, safe play mats out in the stores, Lauren decided to make one for Jaden. Soon she started making his mittens, burp clothes, and play-mats using 100% natural organic cotton fabrics. Now she really enjoys making baby-safe products and sharing them in her store for other mommies. Lauren’s idea expanded to making hand printed fabric with baby-safe dyes. Everything in the Pillobebe shop is made in a smoke-free & pet-free home studio in New York.

This 43” x 43” organic cotton blanket is great for sleeping and snuggling or as a play-mat. The colorful blanket is made of a luxurious designer print 100% cotton top and a soft organic 100% cotton flannel bottom with 2 layers of soft and breathable natural 100% organic cotton batting sandwiched in between. There are no finishing residues or resin coatings applied to the fabric. The blanket is machine washable and would make a great gift! Visit Lauren’s shop for more organic cotton blankets and other handmade baby goods.
