New dress

I almost kept this for Rachel BUT it’s just a little too big, for my personal liking anyway. This is a spin off of my tops that I’ve been doing…well, dress/tops. This one is a real dress though for the older end of the age group. Normally my dress/tops fit the older girls as actual tops.

It’s light and flowy and perfect for summer time. It’s 100% cotton, easy wear and easy wash! I love these dresses because I can pull them right out of the washer and put them on a hanger, hang them on the line and put them right in the closet! My daughter loves them too because they are so easy to wear for spring and summer!

TRAINER!!!!

I have created my first trainer! Are you asking yourself, what’s a trainer? Basically a diaper for older kids who aren’t potty trained or need help potty learning. This one you can pull on (or snap on) and snap off when wet.

This one is chocolate brown PUL outer with a natural colored sherpa inner, Baby Blue Fold Over Elastic binding (think 1970’s LOL) and 1 layer of sherpa and flannel in the soaker zone. For being my first it came out pretty well. I wasn’t paying attention when I started the FOE and I accidentally started it on the front wing where you’ll see it instead of the back wing where you won’t when the diaper is snapped. It’ll be sold as a second quality on HC as soon as I get a little time to list it.

Overall I’m very happy with the pattern! I love the contoured soaker too. I normally do not do contoured soakers but I really think this is one thing that will require them.





Who, me, a winner??

It’s 3 something AM. What am I doing awake? Good question, when I know, you’ll know. I didn’t know when I started this blog exactly what I would talk about. I knew I’d be sharing photos of my work but I wanted to share with you how excited I am this early early morning about my good news!

I log onto Yahoo to check out what’s new in the the old inbox and I have a message about a bracelet. A bracelet? YEPPER, I AM A WINNER. People, I don’t know that I’ve won anything in my life (well maybe an apple bobbing contest but anyway…). I won this beautiful bracelet! (scroll down a tad to see it). Isn’t it JUST lovely??? Ohhhhh I can’t wait to get it because I know it will be more beautiful in real life. Not that it’s not in the photo, it IS, but there are things that look pretty in pictures but in reality, the camera does not do it enough justice.

Thank you so very much for this beautiful bracelet!

Movin’ on up

For 3+ years now I have had an eBay store. Last month I decided May would be the projected move date. In the past 3 years fees and risen and risen and risen. Now they are to the point where I have faced the facts that eBay is greedy and it’s no longer worth it for me to be there. It hasn’t been worth it for a while but I’m a creature of habit and old habits die hard. I don’t like change and I’m sure many of you can understand that change can be a scary thing to accept sometimes.

Fees are through the friggen’ roof and a lot of buyers may not understand how much we sellers actually pay out! Sometimes it really comes down to, in the broad scheme of things, giving the item away and quite frankly that’s not okay for me.

I’ve been selling on Hyena Cart for a little over a year now and it’s really been a great place for me. I’m sure you will find it much easier (and cheaper) than buying from eBay. They don’t charge me fees for each individual sale and thus I pass that savings onto you! You get the same great product for less than what you’d pay through eBay! How can that be bad???

In addition to diapers, I have started a new Spring and Summer line of clothing AND I have a few more earth friendly goodies in mind as well! Come over and take a look at what’s new!

New Lime PUL

Got my lime PUL (along with chocolate, blue, periwinkle, green, and natural) form a new manufacturer mid-week last week and today I got a chance to cut into it. have to admit I wasn’t too thrilled with it before I paired it with a light blue microfleece and a butter yellow micro. It reminds me of lemony-lime! The yellow is from another manufacturer but it was one of the ones I made while making the lime diapers.
