First Friday June

Although the weather was rainy & cold Friday night it didn't stop our special guest from creating art in the store! Bucks county artist, Ray Pulli designed a customers belly cast as on lookers watched. Many people didn't know what the actual canvas was until we explained. For those of you who are unfamiliar with belly casting let me explain. A belly cast is a plaster cast made of an expecting mom's beautiful pregnant form. You buy the kit (at O Bambino) & make the pregnancy belly cast with a loved one in the privacy of your home. Its an easy project that is made in as little as 30 minutes. No mixing of messy materials is required and the end result is a perfect 3D memento of an expecting mom's belly or torso. We have invited local artists to design the casts on First Fridays for some special customers. The customer gives the artist an idea of what they would like on the cast & as you can see its truly a work of art! Many women shy away from the idea, but from what I'm hearing its really fun & its pretty cool to see yourself from everyone else's view. This is something very special that you can hang in the nursery or keep in a private place. This is the only true way to remember your belly & show your little one what you looked like together. Stay tuned for July's belly!
