"They came with a sweet hand-written note from the woman who made them and were individually
packaged in little brown lunch bags with teeny clothes-pin closures.I love each and every one of them and they are perfectly suited for each baby. We've hung them on mobiles right now so they watch them spin and twirl around..Lily especially watches hers very intently. As soon as they're old enough to start grasping, I'm going to stuff the little creatures into the babies' palms and tell them not to let go :)"
I cried! Not just because she liked them, but because a little bit of me does go into everything I make, a little bit of love and care and me and to know that they are hanging over a tiny babies cot and they are looking up at them, well it makes my belly feel nice inside. This email from her is WHY I make things, why I make things for little babies to smile at and for children to giggle at. Sigh. It has made my day.
