Today I am excited to introduce you to Margaret Bloom, the author of Making Peg Dolls, one of our bestselling books at Bella Luna Toys, and one of my very favorite crafting books!
Margaret has just published her second book, Making Peg Dolls & More. In introducing this enchanting new book, I thought it would be fun to interview Margaret, and learn more about her.
And to celebrate the launch of the book, Bella Luna Toys is happy to offer readers 10% off on both Peg Dolls books, as well as on our wooden peg forms, wool felt sheets, and opaque watercolor paints, everything you need to start creating your own collection of peg dolls! (Use code PEGDOLLS through February 28, 2015.)
For now, I invite you to pour a cup of tea and take a few minutes to get to know Margaret. I hope she inspires you to try your hand at this simple craft! If you have your own question for Margaret, leave a comment and she’ll answer as soon as she can.

Have you heard about new Filana Organic Beeswax Crayons? I am so excited to introduce them at the beginning of this new year at Bella Luna Toys!
Click on the video link above to learn more about Filana Crayons, how they are different from the Stockmar Wax Crayons that we also carry, and see a comparison of the color quality.
Stockmar is a German company, that originally produced beeswax candles. More than 50 years ago, they began producing crayons containing beeswax for use in Waldorf schools. Stockmar crayons have been used widely in Waldorf schools around the world since then, and have become known for their rich pigments and quality of color, and for the warmth and scent that the beeswax lends.
What I and many other Waldorf educators were not aware of until recently, is that Stockmar crayons are made from a base of paraffin and contain only 10% beeswax.
