The real treasure found with puppetry is that they bring elements of magic, wonder, and awe to every moment. This has been my aim all along with puppets: introduce or inspire as many people as I can to get involved with puppetry. This weekend was no exception. I had my puppets for sale out at […]
Life as a puppet master
As I pack for a long weekend camping trip in the woods, I have to save room for my puppets of course. Being a puppet master, it’s the least I can do to keep spreading the love of puppetry far and wide. My obsession for puppets sprouted from this family reunion campout, because it’s one […]

Puppet Pilgrimage and Publication!
The beginning of July was action packed for me and my puppets. My husband and I embarked on another journey to see our favorite band Ween, this time to the Pacific North West. Of course I had to bring the Gene and Dean Ween puppets so they could play and frolic and enjoy the best band ever! We […]

May the Puppets be with you!
We are trucking along here at Paisley’s Puppets spreading the joy that puppets bring to our everyday lives. Three of my puppets found new homes in April, which is lining up with my mission to spread as much joy as possible with puppets as possible. As with everything in life, plans tend to take turns […]

We have been busy over here at Paisley’s Puppets this spring helping people be creative! It is always a joy to see brand new puppets spring into life and the smiles on their makers faces is priceless! Mid-March was my first monster puppet class for the wee ones. We had two participants and their parents come and […]
