Calgary, Canada (PRWEB) September 20, 2007
Once upon a time a mother created the perfect second gift her child ever received (the first gift was the gift of life itself). The mother wanted her baby to know she was loved every minute of the day, for the rest of her life. So the mother made a luxurious, silky-soft blanket and wrote a book about how that blanket would always remind the baby of her love, from birth right 'til the day when her baby gave a piece to her own newborn child.
This story is not some fairy tale; it's true. The book is titled Blanket Full of Love and it's the brainchild of Canadian mother turned author, Kim Freeman. Wanting to create something personal for her daughter, Freeman wrote her a beautiful story about a special blanket. She then made the blanket from her story out of the softest material she could find.
Freeman was encouraged by friends and family to make this wonderful concept available to other families. Pleasantly surprised by the great responses, Freeman started Starrytime Keepsakes, the company through which she makes high-quality blankets and the best personalized storybooks available.
Blanket Full Of Love is a touching story about the enduring nature of love for a child. A loving adult tucks a blanket around a baby and softly wishes that it will always remind the child of how much he or she is loved. As milestones such as first steps, first time on a big slide, going to school and even becoming and adult are experienced, the blanket assures the child that she's never really alone.
An incredible amount of effort went into ensuring that each 28-page book had the most effective personalization possible. Because each child's name is printed throughout the story, great care was taken to make the words and rhymes sound perfect for any name. In addition, customers actually choose illustrations that resemble the child. By choosing from 42 unique illustration sets of "versions" (21 boys and 21 girls) there are enough possibilities to visually represent virtually any child. You even choose the blanket color to match the child's blanket in the story!
Made of the softest poly-chenille and embroidered with a heart and the phrase Blanket Full of Love, the blanket is durable enough to be used every day and then put away as a keepsake later. It measures 29" x 35" and is machine washable and dryer safe. Each blanket is available in pink, blue or green.
In addition to having received an iParenting Media Award and a Family Choice Award, Blanket Full of Love is a favorite of many celebrity moms and editors, who say it makes a perfect 1st birthday gift or baby gift. Here's what a few famous folks had to say:
"Thank you so much for the sweet personalized book. It really does remind me of Grier. It was very thoughtful of you to think of us!" -Brooke Shields, Mother/Actress

Much appreciation and success to you and your wonderful company." -Angela Bassett, Mother/Movie Star
"Not only is the book bound to be a classic, but I'm actually considering using this blanket fulltime." -Linus Van Pelt, Peanuts Cartoon Star/Kid
