Today, we bring you a giveaway from SouleMama Sponsor, Imagine Childhood. In Sarah's words:
"Imagine Childhood is a family owned and operated company specializing in earth friendly goods, craft and activity tutorials and educational supplies that support and nurture the magic of childhood.
Visit the Imagine Childhood blog."
SouleMama: What's the product or offering that you are most excited about in your shop right now? Tell us about it.
Sarah: We are very excited about our new Lookbook! With more than 170 pages of inspiring and thoughtful gifts for the holiday season, it's our largest collection yet. We’ve spent the last seven years combing the globe for unique heirloom quality toys, tools, games, and craft projects. This new Lookbook is packed with the results of our search, many of which are $25 or less + we offer free shipping on orders over $100. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
SouleMama: How does the balance of family and work play out for you?
Sarah: Since it is a family business composed of two generations, working on Imagine Childhood has actually created many more opportunities for family creativity, collaboration and communication. From the projects that we create for the blog to the products we source for the shop, everything that goes into and comes out of Imagine Childhood is the result of the collective efforts of many diverse perspectives with similar roots... which can be a pretty amazing thing to experience together.
SouleMama: Is there a special place that inspires you?
Sarah: I’ve been getting up early lately and, with the light changing the way it is right now, that means it’s pitch black outside when I roll out of bed into a sort of dream like state. I’m fairly certain that I’m not fully awake as I move through my morning tasks on autopilot. Usually when I’m up that early it’s because I have a lot to do and those precious extra minutes will make my day go much more smoothly. But lately, instead of charging through my long list of tasks, I’ve been taking a moment, that specific moment when the sun begins to rise, to just sit outside. That is the space that inspires me right now. Those fleeting minutes in the morning when everything is open and full of potential. Those seconds when the light changes so dramatically that the world tries on different shapes before settling into the ones we know and recognize. That space inside the early sketches of a day where anything is possible and everything can be fixed or mended if need be. It may only be five minutes, but when I really give in to it, it can change the course of my entire day.
SouleMama: Do you have a favorite inspirational quote?
Sarah: Right now it’s:
"It takes time to live. Like any work of art, life needs to be thought about." ~ Albert Camus

This would be wonderful. I totally agree with her inspiring place. That early morning time is so incredibly wonderful! It is my most favorite time of day, a time of possibilities and excitement and joy. (I just wish I could enjoy it more often!)
