“We’ve found that when you solve an everyday problem in a simple and unique way, people get really excited about it.”
Hailing from the great Midwest, then individually tumbling through many locations, we’re two sisters who landed in the same place for long enough to combine our unique talents to create something bigger. At Two Tumbleweeds we create uniquely crafted goods that inspire creativity in everyday life, the first of which was Foodie Dice.® To our surprise, when we launched it on Kickstarter we raised $156,000. We think about every little element of what we make, with no detail left unconsidered. It’s not enough to have a great idea; we also want everything that we create to be beautiful and thoughtful.
We originally created Foodie Dice for ourselves because even though we cooked often and liked to experiment in the kitchen, we tended to cook the same things over and over again. We wanted to find a way to take advantage of all that’s available to us here. Once we started to play with the dice, we discovered tons of new combinations that we wouldn’t have thought of before, and after our success on Kickstarter, we realized that when you solve an everyday problem in a simple and unique way, people get really excited about it.
Recently, we took the process that we used to create Foodie Dice and put it into the Hatch notebook, with the hopes that it will guide and inspire others to bring their own ideas to life.
