COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS: KCEtsy Team's Great Giveaway! WEEK 6: WINNER'S CHOICE of ANY BABY SLING from Polkadot Papoose!
WEEK SIX: Win a baby sling of your choice from Tara Harrup at Polkadot Papoose! According to Tara, "Everyone has hobbies, and I’ve had my string — cake making, soapmaking, photography. I may have even tried macrame, though I can’t remember now — but most of these passions cooled. After wearing my infant son in a fabric baby sling four years ago, however, I had that transcendent 'I could really improve this product' moment, and Polkadot Papoose was born."
"My flesh-and-blood inspirations are my boys, Aedan and Silas, who remind me daily of the value of snuggles, but in a more esoteric sense, I draw light from colorful writers and artists such as Frida Kahlo, Maya Angelou, and Isabel Allende, as well as literary characters and even a few well-known creative individuals who camped on the melancholy side of life, such as Sylvia Plath."
"While my favorite sling is the Artemesia, my favorite item currently in my shop are the Diaper Dots. It’s a classically pretty scented sachet that can be stuffed in shoes, purses, diaper bags, or drawers, and it seems to always draw comments. In general, however, I love making anything that brings color and life and contented smiles into the everyday lives of my customers. That, I suspect, is really why all of us crafters are in business."
