Star Angel

This is not your average angel!

This cute little angel is 15" tall and very soft and squishy. He is not intended for children under 5 because of her buttons and rhinestones. She is meant to sit on a bed or shelf and to be treated with care.

Plush Animals with Backpacks

I have been wondering how I can influence a child's self esteem with my plush animals. The idea that the animals make a child feel good and smile is nice but I wanted more. Friday morning I came up with this new idea to put  backpacks filled with my affirmation cards on the back of my animals. These two are my prototypes and I think they turned out really well. Now a child can cuddle with a soft plush animal and also read, or have read to the affirmations in the backpack. The affirmations will teach the child about self worth, how to be with friends, behavior in school, manners and much more.

Ozzy and His New Dog

I just had to share these pictures because they bring to life what I have been hoping would be the reaction my animals have on children. Ozzy who is two years old, loves the gray dog Grandma gave him.
Ozzy looks like he needs a nap while holding his precious possessions.
Sleeping with a friend is always comforting.

Dog Scarves

We love our dogs, don't we? I love mine and I want them to be safe at all times. Once I lost a dog that didn't have any identification on. We had just given her a bath and let her outside not knowing that one of the kids had left the side gate open.  We never found her and it was very sad for the whole family. I think about this often because I remove my dog's collar and identification while they are in the house and yard. I think it is more comfortable for them and less noisy for us. But if the dogs got out, I'm afraid history would repeat itself again.

It was because of this history lesson that I created the dog scarf. I think of the scarf as a Leisure Collar. Something for the dogs to wear in the home that is comfortable and makes no noise. I put my dogs name on the scarf and on the backside I wrote our phone number. Now the dogs are comfortable and safe.

Here are my dogs modeling my new product. Let me know what you think.

Children and Plush Earth Dolls by Daily Whisper

When I made the affirmation cards for children I wanted to present them in more than one way. I came up with a fleece doll that has a pocket on its back that holds 3 affirmation cards. The kids who have  these toys really enjoy playing with them. The Fleecie Earth Doll are plush and squishy and can be used as a napping pillow and friend. If the child is not old enough to read the card the pictures are cute to look at and an adult can read the words to them.

Teaching a child to speak to themselves kindly can be challenging, especially if the parent struggles with this as well. Kid's need to learn that unkind words hurt, no matter who they are aimed at. The affirmation cards passive messages in the back pocket of these toys help a child learn about kindness, love and honor.

The Power of Words

A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep pit. All the other frogs gathered around the pit. When they saw how deep the pit was, they told the unfortunate frogs they would never get out. The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit. The other frogs kept telling them to stop, that they were as good as dead.

You Reap What you Sow

The man slowly looked up.  This was a woman clearly accustomed to the finer things of life.  Her coat was new. She looked like she had never missed a meal in her life.  His first thought was that she wanted to make fun of him, like so many others had done before.
