♥ this post is dedicated to my niece, Christina♥
when i began to sell some of my polymer clay pieces at two quaint stores in Massachusetts about two years ago, i came up with an idea to merge one of my clay designs with a young, aspiring writer’s talents. that young writer is my godchild/niece, Christina. i’ve had this special bond with her since she was born 30 years ago. i wanted to create a pod-like piece (which became a series) that was mysterious to it’s owner; a special story to go with it. i asked nina to write a poem for our pod. the “nina pod” was born and is now named after her. just imagine being a very young girl and listening to the magical story about her little “nina pod”. i know, as a young mother now, nina will read this to her own 3 year old daughter, riley; and believe me, riley will hang on to every word.
here is a picture of the “nina pods” and the poem she wrote. deep inside the pod is the tiny dragonfly. each pod came with the poem typed on a “vintage” scroll. it has been a hit with girls of all ages and has been given as baby gifts.
enjoy the story of the magical “nina pod”.♥
