First of the New Year!

Today while we were all lounging around, I got an itch to try a new design for a pair of flip flops.  I know it's December, but these colors will match any New Years Party!  And if your like me you wear flip flops year 'round.  The pictures never do the crystals justice, but these are red, white, and blue Swarovski Crystals on a metalic black flip flop.  They are an Old Navy Brand, but they are made in Brazil.  I have to do some special "digging" to find them because most of what is in the stores is made in China and even though they look the same they are not as comfortable.  These are the most comfortable, economic flip flops I have ever come across and everyone who has purchased a pair has given nothing but compliments about how comfortable they are.

Your Favorite Sports Teams!

My latest endeavor has been creating sports themed heating packs.  I have a few different teams at the moment and will gradually be adding more.   Two different people have requested bags with their favorite team.  Since this is football season, it is easier to get in fabric for those teams.  One of my requests was for someones home baseball team, so I had to special order for that.  It took a little searching, but we found it.  If you would like to see your favorite team on your heating pack let me know.
I know I should have the Seahawks on here, but most of my relatives are Vikings fans!  Don't worry, the Hawks are coming soon.

Black & White Collection

These are the latest heating pack covers.  They are made from soft flannel.  My personal favorite is the dark grey and black, it's even softer that the other two shown!

'Tis the Season

It's here again! The weather is getting colder and people (like me) are finding ways to keep warmer. Orders for Microwavable Corn Bags are picking up and I can see why.  Lately I have been heating one up at night to warm up my feet at bedtime. No more freezing feet in bed. Another thing I have been doing is heating one up on the cold mornings when I need to go out.  It helps me warm up faster to have one in my lap while I'm driving.  Sometimes I even put them between my back and the seat.

Send me your uses for your heat pack!

See Microwavable Heat Pack page for sizes and easy ordering.   Keep warm!

Just Between Friends Sale

This weekend Amy and I gathered some of our creations to sell at the Tacoma "Just Between Friends" event down at the Puyallup Fair Grounds.  At these events, consignors bring their new and gently-used children's and maternity merchandise to sell. We brought lots of our cute hair bows.  Shoppers browse and purchase these items at a great saving, usually far below retail prices. What a huge event it was!  It was like being at a huge department store - almost like a Babies R Us store.  This was our first time being a part of this particular event and I must confess that I was really surprised at how organized and clean everything was.  Not only that, all of our items sold!  This is something worth telling people about whether you have items your children have grown out of, maternity clothes, or toys to sell; or are looking for gently used items for your family.  JBF happens at all different locations around the US.  Check out their site for more info!
