Today, we bring you a giveaway from SouleMama Sponsor, Imagine Childhood. In Sarah's words:
"... a little nature... a little imagination... a lot of play. Toys, tools and activities for growing minds. Imagine Childhood is a family owned and operated company offering high quality environmentally conscious toys and activities that encourage exploration, creativity, and open-ended unstructured play.
SouleMama: What role does 'handmade' play in our society?
Sarah: I think handmade items play an extremely important role in society, especially these days when much of what we interact with is industrially manufactured. Handmade items share pieces of history and family stories. They teach us the value of imperfection. They make lasting memories. But primarily, they illuminate the importance of process. Handmade goods (and the making of them) help us understand what it takes to transform disparate elements into a unified and beautiful whole. They teach us that anything is possible as long as you’re willing to put in the time and get your hands a little dirty. They are catalysts for the makers and inventors of our future.
SouleMama: What's your favorite thing you've ever made?
Sarah: Sunshine... I think I’m a bit like a plant that way. Being from Colorado, I grew up on a healthy dose of 300+ days of sun a year and any time I’ve lived in a place with less, I miss it all the way down to my bones. It could be twenty below zero outside and you’ll never hear me complain as long as the sun is shining. Sunshine and fresh air can cure almost any ailment in my opinion.
SouleMama: Do you have a favorite inspirational quote?
Sarah: Today it’s: “Optimism is a strategy for making a better future. Because unless you believe that the future can be better, you are unlikely to step up and take responsibility for making it so.” ~ Noam Chomsky
