I have recently discovered the wonderful world of trading products with other work at home parents. And seriously, it rocks. I've obtained some wonderful items that I otherwise would never have tried in exchange for graphics and my own handmade items. I am absolutely thrilled that I've finally opened myself up to this.
Leah of Whiffy Bean Bags sent us some yummy smelling bean bags, as well as a scented I-spy game, the Whiffy See-it. Keilyn loves to sniff her Whiffys and the see-it provides plenty of quiet-time entertainment for Corbin. It's awesome for car rides, especially ones where we have to wait in the car at Imperial Hobbies while Daddy shops for WarMachine minis or D&D books.
I have a few other fabulous trades on the way for Easter. Lisa from Patchy Pants is making something special for Corbin, but it's a secret! Lili of lili lutu made Keilyn a baby to bride bracelet and Lori of Baby Go Green is sending some Melissa and Doug toys. I've traded with Lori before, and se is awesome!
Speaking of Easter... I bought some wooden toys from Grow With The Grain. Keilyn will have her own 'cell phone' and Corbin is getting a mini coupe. I am excited to be finally having a mostly hand-made holiday. If I'm buying into this commercialization of holidays thing, I might as well be supporting the wonderful WAHPs out there, instead of bloodsucking big businesses!
