The genesis for this blog started while I was going through my extensive list of media professionals and thinking that there really must be something fun I could do with this, married with the recent introduction of all these amazing crafters and designers. These people are making fun and unique things here on Maui, and with the miracle of the internet (Facebook, Pinterest, Etsy and just old-fashioned websites) have the ability to sell their wares all over the world. Now, its just a matter of spreading the word, and this blog will hopefully help accomplish that!
One of these amazing designers is Taryn, the creator of kid’s clothing line Bitty Bambu, whom I met since our daughters go to preschool together. One day, the preschoolers were invited to help out at a photo shoot for the clothing line, to be shot by the preschool teacher, Kristy Copperfield (another blog post all together!). When I saw all these kids in their darling outfits, my jaw just dropped!
Taryn describes her inspiration for her line as
“beautiful, colorful, and playful – all the elements that I believe every childhood should be full of”

Blogging disclosure regulations now require me to disclose if I have received this product for free, which I did, but it was for participation in the shoot, and not for the blog, since this is a new blog today.
But in the interest of FULL disclosure, I should point out that the girl eating the lollipop in the bottom picture is my daughter… 😉
