Tidwell Hollow Friends

One of the benefits of having an Etsy shop is meeting other creative folk.

Today I’d like to introduce you to Madeline and Tidwell Hollow Friends.

An online shop where you’ll find stuffed toys that are truly unique as well as hand crafted and totally adorable!

A little information about the creator behind these cuties …


1. Tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Madeline, and I have been a part of the Etsy community since 2007. I began with a jewelry shop ( and ended up switching to sewing after a few years. Besides running a small shop on Etsy, I work a full time for a credit union where I establish business accounts. I’m thankful for the experience I’ve had at my day job because it has opened my eyes to the business side of running a shop.

2. How did you become interested in creating?

I can’t recall a time when I didn’t create. My grandma always laughs about how I would come up to her as a child and say that I want to make something (even if I didn’t know what that something was). Today I make stuffed animals, jewelry, and write a book that I’m hoping to one day have published.

3. What is your inspiration?

My inspiration for Tidwell Hollow Friends comes from a piece of property that my parents used to own. The land was located in a tiny part of Tennessee called Tidwell Hollow. We were always coming across critters (foxes, raccoons, otters, muskrats, snakes, owls…the list goes on). I imagine my dolls/animals living back on that farm.

4. What is your favorite piece you’ve made and why?

It’s difficult to pick just one favorite. I think it would have to be a pair of earrings that I used to make in my jewelry shop. I think the combination of the vintage green cabochons and the pink teardrop was stunning! I would love to make more, but the pink beads are no longer available. And I was too sad to look for a substitute.

5. What’s something random and unique about you?

Both of my Etsy shops are light and airy and full of whimsy; they are the outlet for my sweet side. But I’m actually a little nerdy. I love long drawn out dark stories whether it’s a book, TV, movie, or anime series. The longer and more evolved of a story, the better.

I hope you’ll browse Madeline’s shop whenever you’re looking for a unique gift for someone special.

Whether young or simply young at heart, you’ll find something special at Tidwell Hollow Friends!
