The Joy In Something Stuffed
Part of joy is the gift of giving. When you give something you are in a state of abundance - you have so much you can afford to give some away. When you give something that brings joy to another, you are also creating joy in yourself. When you give to a child, you are creating a really special type of joy. Kind of a pure joy. In sum want to be joyous? Bring joy to a child.
Which brings us to this link. I just think it's very cool. They take any picture (photo or drawing) and make it into a stuffed thing. VERY cool. And ok, not cheap, but whether you buy it from them or copy the idea and make something from a pic yourself..it's cool.
