Hi! I'm Michelle Barbaro, artist in pottery, ceramic arts, and hide
paintings. I've been in this industry for the past 10 years. All my primary
work has focused in the Southwest
Styles with a more contemporary flair. I hope to be bring some of my
work to this web site soon. My studio is currently under construction just
as this web site is!
I discovered the Ty Beanies because
of my 4 granddaughters. It seemed as though I had a new full time job
trying to find what they wanted "needed" for their collections. As a
result of all my searching, I too fell in love with them, so I started
collecting them myself! Can't take the kid out of us can you.
I thought there was a void in the bean bag toy marketplace as far as
boys were concerned ... I have 4 grandsons and one more on the way as
well. Then I saw the Meanies. They
were just perfect! A little bit on the gross, mutant, and humorous side,
just what these little guys would like. In fact, seems that Dads like
them just as much ... maybe even more!
I'll be bringing more items on line soon ... handcrafted gift items,
home decor, gourmet foods, and a year round Christmas shop.
Thanks for stopping in, I hope you visit often. ~
