Welcome!  I’m Erin, mama to two little kids- Stella and Elliot and wife to Nick.  I’m a woman of many hats- mother, teacher, toy maker, author, gardener, and crafter among many other things. Our family lives in a suburb of Indianapolis, Indiana where we try to make the most of life, which means things can be a bit chaotic at times.  Our days are filled with homeschooling, weeding, naps in the striped hammock, and pie baking, of course!

Also, this year Stella and I are starting our journey into homeschooling, which is sure to be an eventful undertaking.

While my husband does work out of the home, we also own a small wooden toy company called Imagination Kids.  We specialize in simple, open-ended toys that are eco-friendly and safe for little ones.  Each toy is made by the four adult hands of our family.

Currently, I’m also working on an upcoming, but yet to be titled wooden toy making book!  The book will be published by Fox Chapel Publishing in the first half of 2011.  I’ll let you all know when we have a firm release date.
