Penny and the magic puffballs was born out of my love for my daughter Paris, and my desire for her to feel comfortable, confident and secure in her skin. She questioned why her hair was different from all of the other girls and wondered why she couldn't wear her hair like theirs. I wanted her to know that different didn't mean bad, different was special.
