When you think Idaho, you probably don’t think about the indie craft scene. But I found some pretty cool crafters in this little corner of the US of A. If you like what you see below and what to find some more Idaho crafters, check out the Southeast Idaho Etsy Team and Idaho Indie Works.
I love fun furniture for kids. Especially whimsical pieces like these from My Little Big Chair. The Little Miss Muffet Tuffet featured below is loaded with details, down to the bug print on the lining beneath the ruffles. I’m not sure if it is the ideal place for your little miss to sit and eat her curds and whey*, but it’s a perfect perch to read, to brush her hair (vanity stool?), to put on her shoes, etc
Tuffets are not just a chick thing, incidentally. There are tuffet options for boys in My Little Big Chair’s shop. I like this drum themed tuffet. Perfect for him to sit on, or bang out a tune on. You could say this piece is easy on the ears and the tush.
* Side Note: Has anyone ever deciphered exactly what curds and whey are? Because I am still wondering. It doesn’t sound all that appetizing. Maybe that is the real reason Little Miss Muffet ran away.
One Girl Circus offers delightful, versatile designs you won’t find anywhere else for girls and boys. Every day is a special occasion for your little ones; they should dress the part!
I make all clothing items to order with my own two hands, and it is important to me that each piece is as beautiful on the inside as the outside, as well as being comfortable and durable for everyday adventures.
All of my clothing is washable and crafted with care, so that even the most sensitive little ones don’t feel scratchies or itchies. Seams are entirely enclosed where possible, any exposed seams are professionally finished to prevent fraying, and tags are stitched down for comfort.
Handcrafted with heirloom-quality construction means that these are the clothes you will save for your next children, or the next generation of children.
Most sweet knit hats are more appropriate for baby girls, so it is refreshing to see some that are meant more for boys.

I knit during naptime (when I SHOULD be exercising…)
2009 is the year that I began to actively seek handmade spa and beauty products. Before that I had seen few of them, and hardly knew that anything beyond handmade soap was available. I have developed favorites.
Dress Green makes soothing, chemical-free body creams. My favorite is the coconut. But a number of other scents are available if the sunny smell of coconut doesn’t do it for you.
