Handmade Marathon - Day #4 (Baby Jives Co)

Editor's Note

Welcome to DAY FOUR of the Handmade Marathon.  

I really have a thing for mobiles right now, so when I saw these gorgeous offerings, I knew they HAD to be included in the Handmade Marathon.  These would make such a special gift for a mom-to-be or a newborn baby.  

About baby Jives Co.

Baby Jives Co creates one of a kind mobiles to inspire wonder everyday. Handcrafted in my studio in Philadelphia, PA using natural materials such as cotton fabric, stainless steel, and wood the mobiles are designed as works of art which will endure the years with proper care.

I believe the things we surround our children with should be as wonderful and imaginative as they are. With that in mind, I am trying to make a bit of magic that will last long after the crib is gone. My inspiration for the mobiles is often from my kids and seeing the magic of the world through their eyes.  One of my recent designs was inspired by my son's favourite book Toy Boat which I have read about 100 times.  After you read a book that many times you almost have it memorized so I found my mind wandering while reading to the idea of creating my own toy boat out of fabric and sticks.  Another mobile was conceived on a summer day when we were at the botanical gardens and my son spent a half an hour chasing the butterflies from rose bush to rose bush and I thought what a wonderful moment, I want to capture this and bring it home and the butterfly mobile was born.
