GIVEAWAY! Made By Alejandro

Zach is starting to inch slowly out of the stage where dress up and make believe is the center of his world. The change is expected, but I do so love when I see him slip back into pure fantasy land every now and again. Something about the package that arrived from Made By Alejandro did that. When he laid eyes on the bejeweled leather crown there was no hesitation, no worrying about what others might think. His face lit up and the crown stayed on his head for 3 straight days.

Alejandro Ortega's work is truly breathtaking. His background is in Commedia d'el Arte mask making which he studied in Italy. After making some sword sets for his kids, he realized there was a real appreciation for heirloom quality leather swords and shields for play and he started his Etsy shop, Made By Alejandro.

The leather swords, daggers, and shields are extremely sturdy and stand up to the action of kid play. Zach tells me he likes them because they are "the most authentic".

And now Made by Alejandro is making beautiful leather crowns.  Zach loves that they have real looking gems set in the leather. I love how he created a leather tie with a bead in the back making the crowns easily and endlessly adjustable so that even the wee members of the royal family can have some fun.

Today Alejandro is giving away the leather crown pictured below.
