I’m a gift-giver. I admit it. I love picking out the perfect item for a loved one, or knitting a special handmade something or other.
This year, I did my holiday shopping year-round and finished before Halloween. That’s a record for me, but with an unusually busy December on the way, it seemed important to buy ahead. When I start shopping early, I spend less money and select more thoughtful gifts.
And speaking of thoughtful gifts, for those of you who haven’t done your shopping, check out Wall Stories‘ imaginative fabric wall art.
The products are printed on fabric, instead of vinyl, using eco-friendly dyes, and they make a sensationally creative statement in any room. They’d be great gifts for your children or the special families in your lives.
Wall Stories is an independent, mom-run, eco-friendly business, just the kind of thing I love to support. The company grew out of a partnership between award-winning artist Maria Carluccio and savvy businesswoman Caron Reeder.
Even better, the wall decals are intended for hours of creative playtime! Included “story starters” encourage young ones to make up stories and rearrange all the beautiful pieces into new scenes. If a decal loses its stickiness, due to being played with over and over again, it’ll regain its original properties after being washed. In fact, here’s a tutorial about the washing process.
Wall Stories come in several themes, complete with easily moveable pieces and “story starters” to encourage children to concoct their own narratives about the images. The company’s mission, other than helping to beautify children’s worlds, is to get them excited about being creative. How amazing is that?
Although I have finished my shopping, I’m ordering some of the new Wall Stories snowflakes. They’ll be great for hanging Christmas cards and family photos throughout the gray winter days ahead. And I love the idea of supporting an independent business that puts kids and the environment at the top of its priority list.
