Whimsidoodle

The current Maine Team promo was the brain child of Backwoods Creations - the idea: to blog about someone else on the Maine Team with the opposite letter in the alphabet as yours.


My shop: WHIMSIDOODLE

Jen is a self-titled "work at home mom" with a supportive husband and two girls at home.

Jen has been making origami lights for years. Her sister taught her how to make origami boxes when she was in high school. One day Jen went into her art supply closet to get origami paper and discovered wooden shapes purchased years ago with the intention of making a mobile - why not do both projects!

Jen purchases her origami paper from a fellow Etsian - Jasminejewels - and all of her wooden shapes for the ornaments/embellishments are milled by a husband/wife company Lindahl Woodcrafts.

HER PROCESS
Jen hand-paints each component to the mobile, all of the ornaments, furniture embellishments and other wooden goodies and then put a varnish specific for acrylic paint to protect.

Jen then began thinking about all of the people she knew who made beautiful things, but for one reason or another are not able to sell the items themselves.

This is where the dream of Whimsidoodle began. To sell whimsical beautiful works by New England artisans.


What a great idea Jen!

That little airplane is SO cute. It would be great for a kid, but I want it for myself :). Very nice article!
