We are now requesting natural materials from all around the country to be sent to us. Natural Materials may include: acorns, sea shells, sweet gum balls, pine cones, Spanish moss, dried grasses, dried flowers, crystals, flat marbles, broken pottery, sycamore bark, maple winged seeds, seed pods, modeling clay, bamboo, snail shells, deer moss, thistle heads, feathers, clay beads, sparkles, mirrors, chimes, colorful sticks, hickory nuts, snake skins, brushed animal hair (dog, cat, horse, sheep, etc), old bird nests, mica plus many other possible natural materials found or gathered.
Please send them to:
