Maker’s Monday: Curious Timbers

It’s Monday again and that means another Maker’s Monday here on House Fenway! Every Monday I feature a small business and/or artist, their wares and a little bit about them. It has always been a fun experience meeting other makers and enjoying their creations and I want to share that all with you. The time and talent that goes into each products made by a small business or artist far out ways anything you could purchase from a big box retailer. This week’s maker is a newbie to the community, opening up on Etsy this Summer.

I have decided to start a new little series on my blog to celebrate something that is near and dear to my heart — small creative businesses! Each Monday, I’ll be featuring a small business and/or artist, their wares and a little bit about them. Since starting House Fenway 2 years ago, it has always been a fun experience meeting other makers and enjoying their creations. The thought and heart that goes into products made by small businesses and artists far out ways anything you could purchase from a big box retailer. So stay tuned every Monday for House Fenway’s Maker’s Monday series and make sure to check out all of the amazing talent out there!
