BRUNSWICK, Maine (NECN) -- Heidi Boyd's office is a crafter's paradise. The Brunswick wife and mother of three spends her workdays surrounded by colorful felts and fabrics, ribbon and string.
"I'm always making things and creating things. That's like living and breathing for me," she said.
Now the Maine craft designer's home-based business is poised for take-off.
Her Whimsy Kits have just been picked up by Barnes and Noble and Martha Stewart.
Each kit contains the materials and instructions to complete a stuffing-to-buttons craft project.
"All you need to do is open the bag and you should, in a few hours, be rewarded with a little whimsical creature," Boyd said holding up a plush narwhal.
She's already had success selling her kits on-line on "Etsy" and in quilting and sewing stores around Maine..
