Once upon a time there was a Little Woolf. This Little Woolf was very adventurous. She had so much energy and so much to do everyday often times she would not want to go to her crib. To Little Woolf bedtime was boring, there was nothing to see and no adventures to be had.
Outside of bed there were oceans and jungles and woods and animals and gardens and forts- of course Little Woolf didn't want to go to bed. Until one day everything changed...
Little Woolf and her best friend Reggie (a hedgehog) were scavenging the den looking for materials to build a fort. They took blankets from the beds. They took pillows from the couches and emptied out the linens from the closet. They even found Mama Woolf's sewing chest full of colorful fabrics. They used blue fabric to line the bottom of the fort to make the floor to look like the ocean. They used red for the ceiling which looked like the sunset and they used a floral print for their island. The island was a very comfortable place to lay down.
So they did.
and they slept.
Usually when Little Woolf finally crashed out in forts and messes she would wake up back in her boring bed, the forts would be put away, and she would scream to get out and back to adventures.
This time was different.
Mama saw the fort Little Woolf and Reggie slept in. This gave Mama an idea.
"What if?” - Mama Woolf dashed off to get to work.
In Little Woolf's sleep she had a dream and in her dream she heard a sound.... The sound of her Mama Woolf hard at work on the sewing machines.
While Little Woolf slept, Mama did her best to recreate the fun of the fort. She made bright puffy pillows, colorful sheets, blankets with all sorts of designs. She did everything she could to make the crib more interesting.
When Little Woolf and Reggie first opened their eyes, they found themselves back in the bedroom… and back in the crib.
BUT it was beautiful and amazing. The bottom of the bed once again looked like the ocean, the blanket they were on looked like the islands, and their pillows looked like clouds. Mama Woolf had done it! With the artistic inspiration of Little Woolf and Reggie she created an adventure.
Little Woolf and Mama spent that afternoon reading books in the new bed, and that night Little Woolf was excited to get back to sleep.
What would Mama transform the bed to next?
About Mama Woolf
Hi, I'm Lindsay Woolf the mama behind Woolf With Me®. I love everything bold, comfy and neon. When I was eighteen I moved from Texas to California for art school. I was trained in Film and Digital Photography. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Commercial Advertising and Portraiture. My fondest memories of college were spent processing my film in the dark room at an old mansion in Montecito. I met my husband there and I knew one day I would marry him… 8 years later we got married in the same town where we met and have two kids.
Thinking back as a kid I always wanted to be different. I would often sleep over at my grandparents house just so I could stay up late with my grandmother Momese to put the final touches on outfits she'd sew for me to wear to school. I would pick out the fabrics and she would sew it all together. I would often day dream at school about what my grandmother and I would create next. I never learned how to sew until my daughter Olive was born. However, my love to create+design started at a very early age and my grandmother continues to inspire me each and every day.
When I'm not sewing, you can find me relaxing on the beach or at the farmers market with my family. You can also find me out on location photographing people + weddings or writing on my blog.
