I am on a wonderful Etsy team called NaturalKids that is made up of some of the nicest people I've ever met; supportive, caring and wonderful artists who all make items for children of natural materials and believe in trying to live in a sustainable and ecominded manner. Well one of our members wrote a terrific article for the Etsy Storque blog and you should go take a peek here. I love all the pictures of kids actually playing with their toys, great stuff.
And speaking of the team, I ordered an early birthday present for myself from FreedomRainbow, one of our members. I Love her shop! It's full of the most unique and charismatic stuffed animals I think I've ever seen, they're simply wonderful! He hasn't arrived yet but Sarah sent me some sneak preview pictures that I just Have to share...
Isn't he adorable?
I'm one of those people who just never get themselves anything unless it's completely practical. It's a depression mentality I seem to have inherited from my Dad. But I was oohing and aahing over Sarah's dolls and my sweet husband said..."well why not?" and I said "you're right, why not?!" and I did! Such decadence!
