This spring, we have had a lot of fun new products coming through our doors here at Bella Luna Toys, but I’m not sure that any has caused as much excitement around here as our new book Making Peg Dolls.
Its author, Margaret Bloom, had contacted me recently about carrying it. Since I’ve been interested in adding more doll-making crafts so that parents can make their own Waldorf toys, I didn’t hesitate to say yes, but I was unprepared for just how excited I would be once I got the book in my hands and was able to look between its covers.
My assistant Amy and I probably lost an hour of work time as we ooh-ed and ah-ed over Margaret’s adorable creations, and our hands started itching to get busy making families of these sweet little dolls!
Earth Hour was observed two weeks ago on March 29, when millions of people agreed to turn off their lights for one hour from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. local time.
This week on “Sunday with Sarah” I share my own experience participating in Earth Hour and have a proposal for you.
