Crafty Baby creates “fun and functional creations for children.” This sensational company has their specialty as handcrafted items for infants, toddlers, and children. All of their items are original designs that focus on being durable, practical, but very cute too. The items are all made in the United States by longtime seamstress, Jill.
Some of the other choices include the following styles: Dinosaur, LadyBug, Under the Sea, Blue Sports, On the Road, and Big Cats.
Other products in her store include…
Nappie-The nappies are 17-inch square fleece blankets edged with satin binding. Little ones love to snuggle with this type of item. It sells for $12.50. There are four styles to choose from but the one below is my fave.
Okay, so my "thing" is translating the feel I get from products online into the type of place these items would be sold if in a brick and mortar store. This would be the type of store where there are always homemade cookies waiting for the customers and hot cocoa. It's always warm and makes you want to sit down and stay for a while. The babies are always happy as is the owner with the twinkle in her eye. The twinkle exists because nothing makes her happier than to see a happy child, hence the fact that she's made happy, cozy children her life. Everything in the store is soft and fluffy, kind of like being in the clouds.
I think the fabrics of this store are beautiful, the items are unique, and they are made from the hands of a mother. The hands of a mother...a beautiful thing. The same hands that make these products stroke the hair of her children...have rocked a cradle...soothed ouchies...held a baby close to her heart. I believe there is something special in the sisterhood of motherhood that a large corporation can never touch. There is something comforting in purchasing a product that you know where comes from and can even apply a name to...Jill in this case. Whenever possible, I try to purchase from mother owned companies.
This is the last of my Christmas store reviews and I'm so glad to end on a cozy store such as this one. So befitting is ending on this store as I'm ready to settle down under a soft blanket myself. Its time to curl up, spend the next few days reading Christmas books, making cookies, creating memories with family, and concentrating on the meaning of Christmas.
The most generous owner has graciously offered to sponsor a giveaway for my lovely readers. This is a very nice gift and I know that anyone would absolutely love it.
