My name is Laura and this is my L&L journey so far.
I was captivated by these beautiful baskets, during my pregnancy, with my first (and so far, only) child, my Son, Link. I fell in LOVE with the stunning, yet simple design, the quality of the craftsmanship and the versatility.
Like all expectant Mothers, I was eagerly anticipating the birth of my baby. Nervous, excited, emotional. ALL the feels. Among the nesting, nursery decorating, last minute shopping trips and ticking off the never ending to do list, I was also thinking about my families future. It was a lightbulb moment. You know the one you have at 3am? Or in the shower? Or heavy traffic?
I decided that I would make it my mission to supply Australian families with these one of a kind heirlooms that could be handed down from generation to generation, like the art of hand weaving itself.
I was 35 weeks into my pregnancy when suddenly, my whole entire world came to a devastating, earth shattering, life changing halt. Link’s heart had stopped beating…
It was the 14th Nov 2016. It was a full moon. In fact, it was closest that the moon had been to the earths surface in 68 years. That night, with the help of the almighty Mother moon's power, I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy, Linik “Link”. His heart was still and for a minute, so was mine.
As time went by, reality started to creep back in and thoughts of returning to work, to the real world, became too pronounced to ignore. The negative self talk was LOUD. I can’t do this. Who am I to be successful. Who am I to sell Moses baskets, I have no baby!
Never one to shy away from a challenge and with my new “YOLO” attitude towards life, I thought, what the heck, what the hell have I got to lose? So LINK & Luna was born.
I truly hope you fall in love with your basket as much as I did mine. I hope it follows you to the beach, on family holidays, to Grandma’s house, to the garden. I hope it provides a nurturing little haven for your precious little babes. I hope it becomes a part of your families life and home.
I know one day soon, I too will finally be able to hold my own baby in not only my arms, but my beautiful basket as well.
Until then, I hope that you’ll come on this journey with me, you never know where it may lead.
Love, Laura X x
