CAMDEN (April 20): Carol Smith of Camden is the woman behind the Lulla Smith custom baby bedding craze. The birth of a baby girl to parents Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes meant three new bassinets needed to be rushed to the West Coast from Smith's Camden studio this week. Holly S. Anderson

Smith has been designing, hand cutting and stitching high-end crib bedding sets, bassinets and Moses baskets for more than 10 years out of her home studio in Camden.
On Wednesday, People magazine sought pictures of the Cruise/Holmes bassinet, and an "Inside Edition" film crew showed up at Smith's door for an interview.
The "Inside Edition" segment is scheduled to air tonight, Thursday, April 20.
"I'm not sure how much of me they'll show or not, but it's fun to get the exposure and show everyone the bassinets," Smith said.
"Inside Edition" airs as follows:
# WLBZ Bangor - 7 p.m.
# WMTW Portland - 7:30 p.m.
