My 1st Featured Artist is..........

Laurel's Zoo
If you are looking for a fun and unique shop you need to visit Laurel's Zoo. She has some of the cutest puppets I have ever seen!!! I first came across Laurel's shop when I was looking for gifts for my children on Etsy. My youngest son loves puppets and he already has all of my sets, so I wanted to find him something that he didn't have. I ordered the "Little Kid Green Monster" and the "Little Kid Black Crow" and he Loves them. Actually all of the kids have a blast playing with them. All of Laurel's puppets are made from her own crochet patterns, and they are very high quality and will stand the test of time!!!

Hand puppets are not the only thing you will find in Laurel's shop...She also makes finger puppets and some of the cutest baby booties!!!

Oh and let's not forget about our feathered friends..Laurel makes some of the best bird toys, and any bird would be lucky to have one of these to play around with!!!

And last but not least...Laurel has remembered the little critters. Just take a look at these great sleep sacks and tents she has made for the Hedgehog in your life!!

So, There you have it folks!! If you are looking for a fun gift for you child, furry or feathered friends..please visit Laurel's Zoo. It is sure to put a smile on your face with her funny item descriptions. Don't forget to read her profile and remember it really is a ZOO in there!!!
