Welcome to pen&thimble, Friends!

Hi! I’m so happy you stopped by! I’m guessing that means your kid is sleeping or you’ve closed yourself into the bathroom or pantry for a snack break. Been there (Literally! I’m a mom of two girls ages 2 and 4), so I’ll be quick…

IMG_6278My shop carries handmade baby bibs and teething toys, children’s lunch accessories, like Montessori placemats, & more. All carefully handcrafted by me to help you moms! My main goals when creating items:

  • they do what they’re supposed to do
  • are safe (all items are CPSC certified for Children’s Products)
  • easy to care for
  • last well beyond your first kid
  • fun & bright
  • make babies & their parents happy
