In recognition and celebration of this week’s Earth Day on April 22, Twirls & Twigs Creative Director/Founder Shawna Dalton talked with The Giggle Guide® about her passion for green living, children’s fashion, color, and the balance of nature, business, and her family. Dalton says, “I was one of those girls who always wanted to be a fashion designer. I studied design from age 16, when I drove to my first summer session at Otis/Parsons. It was love at first sketch for me. Design made my soul sing!” And she has been following the beat of a different drummer and singing the praises of her chosen career path ever since.
Most Americans have felt the bumps and bruises from the rocky economic road of recent times. In an effort to stimulate job growth in the United States, many consumers are purchasing and getting reacquainted with American-made goods.

They’re also rediscovering the pioneering American spirit that is evident in the creative and inspired designs of items crafted in the U.S.A., such as these from IMAGINE GreenWear, LuvStuff, Nano Baby, and 32 Degrees

Woolly Boo® was born in 2009 when Selma Avdicevic and her mother Vahida Subasic were not able to find sophisticated and luxurious crib-size bedding that was made of natural materials, like organic wool and cotton. So, they created their own line of crib mattress pads, crib bumper pads, toddler pillows, toddler comforters, and infant wearable blankets from 100% organic wool filler and 100% natural cotton ticking. Woolly Boo® has also introduced a line of travel pillows, which combines the same quality and sophisticated style as the sleep products.
