Karen Teeley is passionate about creating quality crafts. She has been designing and creating for more than a few years and never sure what she loves best! Whether it is miniatures, wooden toys, puzzles, fairy doors or needlepoint, she approaches each project with love and enthusiasm for the art of creating.
My Mom and Dad gave me a doll house when I was little and that love was re-kindled as a adult. Actually I was in the market for some oriental rugs for my (regular large) home when i realized I couldn't afford them. But once I realized I could make miniature needlepoint rugs...I was just as happy to have those! And so began oriental and other miniature rugs for every room in every doll house.
Since doll houses are big and year long projects, I started making room boxes and miniature personalized book shelves for gifts and commissioned pieces. The book shelves became popular for retirement and milestone celebrations, especially for book lovers. The room boxes are great for capturing a nursery or a childhood room to preserve the memories.
Of course Fairy Gardens are just miniatures outside so they became a natural extension of the craft of miniatures. Outsmarting squirrels became the new challenge and my fairy garden doors and windows are built to withstand the elements of nature ... including the squirrels!
As grandchildren started arriving, I started receiving requests for all natural wooden toys and puzzles. All of the puzzles created for children under three years of age are finished with only bees wax and food-grade mineral oil.
The photograph puzzles are all cut by hand and are available in several sizes.
