Big Changes at Wee Folk Art

Surprise!

I'm not a great secret keeper (understatement noted), so it's been driving me crazy not to share the progress of our new web design with you guys. I must admit I had very little to do with the actual change... it was all Michelle's design and Tim's computer skills. My contribution? Michelle would hold 2 things up and say, "Do you like this or that better?" I suspect she only asked for my input on things that she could have gone either way on. Have I ever mentioned she tends to treat me like a toddler? ;)

Anyway, I suspect you are oooing and ahing along with me. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new design. It is less fussy, more open, but at the same time maintains the warmth and spirit of Wee Folk Art. I think she nailed it spot on!

You will need to take some time to reacquaint yourself with the site. We are organized a bit different, with some things being deleted and some new info being added. Probably the greatest change for us is the addition of a "Shop"!

Although our Shop will not be open until January, we are hard at...Read more

Winner of the Holiday Giveaway from Art of Felt

We have a winner for our Holiday Giveaway from Art of Felt!

Gorgeous!

What incredible talent. I'm in awe of her work and her creativity.

If I were to win, I think I'd select the King Winter. I have several nativity sets which I adore, but I just can't get past his beard and beautiful shade of blue on his cloak.

Beautiful! All of it!

WOODEN SWING

I too, am in love with the rocking board! If I had to choose between the two items, I think I like the swing best (but I love both!)

STILTS

I know our daughter would love the birch walking stilts. I personally have my eyes on a pair of play stands which allow for open ended play...Have even been thinking of placing one on each side of her bed with a canopy on top....
Thank you for having such a wonderful variety of natural, imaginative toys.

I've always wanted a Bolga basket and I LOVE the waldorf paint jars. That rocker board is pretty awesome though! Fingers are crossed! My girls would love...Read more

Bella Luna "In the Good Old Summertime" Giveaway

EDIT: In the land of Oops... We were going to running this giveaway last week and when we pushed it off a week, I forgot to change the dates. So... to everyone that read this and saw that the contest was closed last week... my bad! We fixed the dates, but to state it again, for anyone that didn't enter... the contest runs from Wednesday, August 17 to Sunday, August 21 at 9 pm EST. Thanks to everyone that brought this to our attention :) 
 

It's been a while since we featured any of our "In the Good Old Summertime" activities, in part, because we've been out and about enjoying this Good Old Summertime. And, although we haven't featured all of the activities we planned on, our lovely sponsors aren't letting the ball drop.

This week we have an incredible giveaway from Sarah, at Bella Luna Toys. If this doesn't help your family enjoy some Good Old Summertime time, I'm not sure what could :) There are 3 fabulous giveaways. Two lucky winners will receive:

3 Year Anniversary Giveaway


(First photo on Wee Folk Art)
 

In some ways it is hard to believe Wee Folk Art is 3 years old. Three years... wow. We certainly had no idea of where or what Wee Folk Art would become when we first started. Here is our initial Welcome, posted on July 29, 2008.

No matter how you happened to stumble upon this blog you are most certainly welcome! This blog is written by a mother/daughter team. Although our personalities and personal style differ, we hold true to the same values. Family and home, crafting and creating, guide us through our days. The purpose of Wee Folk Art is twofold. First, we hope to share arts and crafts that enhance the lives of children and beautify the home. Second, we will share our family’s creative adventures and exploration of the natural world. We are ever conscious of the environment and how our actions impact it. We generally use all natural materials and believe, especially with children, homemade is best and less CAN be more. (Okay…this does not apply to the stashes in our craft rooms!) We hope you make a...Read more
