I first want to thank you all for the support I received with my last blog post of my son's birth story. I really didn't think it would get as many hits as it did...Im shocked...and slight intimidated! Not only that, but so many of you reached out to me with support and love that I will never forget! I cried at every DM, email, comment! You have reminded me how kind people can really be and how much love we are capable of showing one another....a complete stranger! What a world we would live in if we showed our fellow human love, compassion & empathy on a daily basis! Thats the world I want to live in....and you guys showed me a glimpse of that Utopia! Thank you....really!
With this new year, we are adding new segments to our blog! We will be doing a new handmade artist spotlight each month sharing with you our favorite handmade brands! Supporting local businesses is so so important. Im so sick and tired of cheap clothing that will not last and was probably made by some child in India or China and/or in unfair working conditions. Im not perfect, I sometimes am guilty of shopping for my kids at Gap or Target...but I usually, actually ALWAYS regret it. The clothing does not last and I hate that I have no idea where it came from or more importantly WHO made it! These issues are real whether we wish to see it or not. Fast fashion is a growing problem... this includes fast jewelry! All the electroformed jewelry coming out of China is a huge problem too! Each item we purchase is a vote towards the world we shape. Its our job as the next generations to set an example.
I wanted to feature Bohemian Soul Creations for a few reasons. First, the clothing is just too freaking cute! I love upcycled clothing. Making something old into something new is so beautiful to me!... not only that, but upcycling or buying vintage is the greenest way to buy clothing! Even buying organic is not as earth friendly as using what is already here! Not only are these clothing eco-friendly, but they are comfortable too. I've purchased "bohemian" upcycled baby clothing before only to be disappointed at the texture of the garments. I hate sacrificing comfort for style! Amber uses the cutest upcycled fabric, but also makes sure its soft and even goes the extra step to line the clothing in soft eco friendly and skin friendly fabrics. My son suffers from intense eczema and this clothing doesn't bother his sensitive skin one bit! He can go from the park to a nap comfortably without having to be changed because her clothing can be used as sleep attire...its just that soft!
Secondly, I love supporting other entrepreneurial moms! Amber is a young Mama of one darling babe and works out of her home just like me! This is so close to my heart as it was always a dream of mine to be able to craft from home while being with my littles. I feel so much better putting my money towards something I love that will last while also supporting another American family. Her clothing is well made and definitely heirloom material.
