Giraffe Stuffys in my Etsy Shop

I love the feeling of accomplishment that comes with creating something out of my own mind. As a young child I was always making things out of bits of fabric and pieces of nature. Growing up in the country far from power lines and the conveniences of city plumbing I was always encouraged to use my creativity and imagination for entertainment, not to mention fortunate enough to have a mother with an endless surplus of craft supplies.

When I grew up I stopped sewing and creating for a lot of years, it had become to frustrating with the short patience I’d developed through teen hood, but when I got pregnant that all changed(for the most part). I suddenly had the patience to create patterns and replace seams. Small imperfections became unimportant and I no longer cared so much for the little things that no one could notice but me.

This week I redesigned a pattern I’d made previously and created a set of Ribbon Giraffes in Orange and Red. They are so soft and lovable, not to mention they stand all on their own. It’s definitely been hard to come to terms with the idea of parting with these little guys, but it is their destiny to be loved and adored by an active imagination on a safari through the African planes!

Take a moment and check out my shop on Etsy. Look around and be sure to let me know what you think!

There is a small person living inside of me, changing and growing every day. I’ve never seen more than a fuzzy colorless image of her on an ultrasound screen, her little nose and her little hands; her little heart beating so fast. Such a tiny glimpse into who will soon most certainly become the center of my world.

Yet some how I know her, as if I’ve known her my whole life and just been waiting for our time. My little Sweet Pea, My Daughter, this little girl person made entirely out of Love. I knew she was a girl before she was conceived. My first born was always going to be a girl, and the ultrasounds technicians confirmation was just the recognition of a premonition I’d had years ago.

I wish there was a way to explain her personality, the way she thinks and reacts. How with only a nudge I know what she feels, what she needs. She’s already capable of so much, of so many emotions and it makes me wonder if we will still be so closely linked when she is no longer kept alive by the beating of my heart. Will I still know her then? Will I still understand her wants and desires? I like to think the connection will only deepen, and that being able to share her completely with her father will tighten the already unbreakable bonds of our family.
