Belly Casting Kit Wanted ASAP; Know of Local Retailer/have One to Sell?
Anyone know where I can find a Belly Casting Kit locally (11th hour: I'm due Monday and would like to cast this weekend if possible)? I live in Park Ridge. Michael's Arts and Crafts do NOT carry the kits. I've seen one called Eternal Maternal (?) that looks nice; it's +/- $40 on-line.
Alternatively, I'd be happy to buy an unused kit from someone! :)
Via Google I've only found on-line sources or out-of-state retailers. I could hire someone to cast me but am trying to save additional expense as we have a very sick 6 year old who begins a bone marrow transplant next month.

As soon as I read your request I called up my friend Abbie. She got hers from Beby Baby on Roscoe and Lincoln. It was around $30. Good luck! I hope you can get it done in time!

You could probably find the plaster tape at a craft store like Hobby Lobby or Michaels and then just do you own:
Good luck with everything!

I think this maybe too late, but Kustum Kribs in Park Ridge carries them. Good luck and sorry that I didn't read this email sooner.

Not sure about Park Ridge but if you don't mind a little drive, Be By Baby in the city has them. They are close to the Lincoln/Belmont/Ashland triangle.
I am sorry to hear about your first "baby", I'll say a prayer for you all.
