Wow, what a year it’s been! During the past year, I have dedicated all my time and energy to helping Bella Luna Toys grow into my vision for it.
Last February, this blog was created. By May, I began work on building a whole new website for Bella Luna Toys that I’d hoped would feel as warm and welcoming as a Waldorf kindergarten classroom. I spent most of my summer in front of the computer adding new products, uploading photos, and writing and re-writing product descriptions. Finally, in mid-October the new site was launched after more than a year of planning and dreaming.
I barely had time to catch my breath before the holiday orders started pouring in—so briskly that I had to recruit the help of four angels and elves to help me get all the children’s presents wrapped and sent off in time!
Now, in these final days before Christmas, things are starting to slow down enough that I was able to enjoy some lovely time with family this weekend (eldest son Harper is home from college for Christmas!) and to help “trim the hearth and set the table.”
I am filled with gratitude for all the words of support and appreciation that I received from so many of you along the way; to my husband Max for his love, encouragement, and good cooking; to Harper, Liz and Heather for their help in getting so many beautiful toys off to their new homes; and especially to Laurie Heriz-Smith for becoming my right-hand angel this season.
Wishing you and your families every blessing at Christmas time, a holiday filled with love and joy, and a new year full of play!
