  1. Hi Lindsay,

    I'm an editorial assistant at Parents working on a story about DIY busy bags. Our editors loved the button snake that you created (http://potpourrimommy.blogspot.com/2013/05/button-snake-busy-bag-activity.html), and I'm hoping you can give me some more information about it, so that we might be able to include it in the story.

    First, I'd like to make sure that this was your original idea. Second, we'd like to get your permission to recreate your idea for Parents magazine. If you agree and your idea is chosen for the piece, we will recreate the craft, photograph it in our NYC studio, and you and your blog will receive a credit on the page.

    If you're up for it, I will send you more information. I'd love it if you could get back to me by the end of tomorrow (Wednesday, Feb. 26).

    Thanks so much!
