If you would like to create your own, mobile, download these instructions and watch the Good Things Utah segment. I will upload the segment here, when it is available.
I had so much fun doing this last time, I thought I would try it again! I will give away a mobile to one randomly chosen commenter. Leave a comment on my blog (any post) between now and Monday, March 16 at midnight.
