Inspired by the concept of automatic writing, Erin and I expanded our T-eye the Knot business. After the first step of wedding song consultation comes the service of receiving a message from your future child. Intrigued? Continue reading to find out more.
The field trip to Material ConneXion parallels the experience of a kid in the candy store. There were so many samples that you can not only look at but also touch and feel. I think Softgel from TechnoGel Italia was my favorite from the visit.
I took a trip to Home Depot and here is a list of interesting soft related items I found:
