and the gang is all there….



I just recieved my digital issue of Mothering Magazine and was sooo excited to see one of my Bamboletta’s in the Best of 2008 Toy issue! Wow! What a total bit of serendipity that was! This is the second year that I have had a doll in the Best of Issue, I am totally honoured. I’m sure it’s the same with most of you, but Mothering holds a very special place in my heart. So exciting! And you know what is also SO great about this issue..look who else is in there…

First.. look at this super cute organic rabbit rattle by my good pal Tressa over at Dress me Up – it’s right beside the doll! I’m so glad that Aria (the doll) was in such good company!

Next look at this..


Yes! That is Ella’s felt crown! Way to go Ella! Both Jasper and Benjamin have one and they are both worn on a regular basis. It is very fitting for Jasper, since he is the king of this house, John may say dictator- but that’s a tad over the top!

Then take a look at this Kitchen that was designed by Bridgitte and Alan at Natural Pod and produced right here in Cobble Hill. My good friend Catherine has this kitchen and is super impressed by it, really, really high quality.


And right beside the’s a Poot and Boogie doll. Congrats Leanne they are so cute !

Thanks so much to Candace (product review editor) for putting in my doll, it really was such a pleasant surprise.

On another note. I received a thank you from the lovely Monica for another doll that I made her. On the note she wrote that I must feel like one of Santa’s elves. I have to tell you that my son Benjamin thinks that I work for Santa. I mean, how cute it that!

    Yeah! Congrats for making it to the top the second year in a row! Well-deserved – for all of you! 🙂 I’d love to get my hands on a copy. You wouldn’t perhaps know if it’s available in the Netherlands, by any chance? 🙂 Or maybe I can just order one through their website. I’ll go have a look. Have a nice weekend!

    Many many congrats!!! How cool, and it will send many more customers your way of course. Well done, you little Elf! 😉
    Meike, I believe Mothering does allow international subscriptions. I have (American) friends who get it here. I should check it out myself too. 🙂
