Toys are toys

What's wrong with this heartfelt creative project? Lysa Eash obviously doesn't have very much creativity. And to say that this should breed some humility into all walks of life is well, sad, my friends.

I'm a proud volunteer at the Advocates Attic here in Hailey and let me tell you: tag or no tag on toys brings the most beautiful smiles to children when they get a "hand-me-down" toy. It's still pretty special to that child.

I feel that the Altered Toy Project is a genius idea. So, onward with your needle and thread ladies and gentlemen! If anything is humilating it's not having the simple gratitude and respect to those who can do some serious stitching.
