I had a customer request a pumpkin applique, and while I hadn't done one before, I figured, why not? Sometimes the best ideas come from custom orders! :) I plan to make up some of these for the shop as well. Happy Fall!!!

the latest in fashion....

I wonder if this will be it? A fleece bangle bracelet secured with a safety pin - courtesy of my 3 year old son "helping" me to sew..."A bracelet just for me?" How can I not wear this all day?

What's one of the best/silliest/worst gifts your toddlers have given you on their own accord?

What is Hyena Cart?

I realize many of my customers and fans are more familiar with Etsy than Hyena Cart.
I thought I'd take a minute to post about this other site, so you can familiarize yourself with it (#1, so you can be ready for the Deal-a-Day stuff coming soon...and #2, so you can find some great items from other sellers of fine handmade, child related items)

The easiest way is to point you to their shopper's FAQ.

As a seller, I like that they have a different fee structure than other places. The listings are easy to post, AND I am able to configure choices. For me, this is the easiest way to offer custom items -  This lets the customer pick size (with adjustments for price), color, trim, etc. as drop down choices. Many diapering families look to Hyena Cart for the latest and greatest in WAHM wares. I'm happy to be part of that group!

You can find me on Hyena Cart here:

Happy shopping, "Hyenas" (that's what you're called over there)!

Winkydinks is doing a Deal a Day!

(note, I have changed some of this information after it was originally posted. Specifically with regard to how the items will be listed).

You may know I'm crazed with the "deal a day" sites (BabyHalfOff, ScrapbookSteals, HippoBargains, etc.)...and I thought it would be fun to host my own DEALS! I've been busy making up some special stock just for this event and will have previews up on Hyena Cart so you'll know what's coming. (Ok, this is a little different than the daily surprise steals, but I wanted to give everyone a chance!). Items are very limited at these prices (remember, I'm a small work-from-home shop!)
  • There will only be 2-3 items each day, and each deal will last 24 hours only.
  • All "deal a day" items will be on Hyena Cart
    • They will be BUY IT NOW style items, which means if you click "buy", it's can't delete it from your cart. This makes it so nobody else can buy it while you're checking out. This is a little different than my standard items. (edited 9/13)
    • Because of the type of listings for these, you are required to have an account to make a purchase (set one up before the item you want is stocked!). (edited 9/13)
    • If you order other items THE SAME DAY, but not in the same transaction, I will still combine shipping. 
    • All items are first quality, offered at an extreme discount 
    • Items will be shown in "preview" mode, showing the day/time they will become available for purchase. You can add them to your "spots" or favorites though! 
  • I will stock items at different times, giving people in different parts of the country and with different schedules a chance (i.e. they won't all be at 9am PDT)
  • Please refrain from purchasing more than one deal - let's share the luck! 
  • I'll post reminders on Facebook the day of the deal (and when previews are up)! 
I plan to get previews up this week! 
What do you think? Are you ready for some STALKING??? :)  

(If you're new to Hyena Cart, don't be afraid! It just takes a name and an email address to register!)

Friday Favorite - Traci Bixby Illustration

It's been awhile since I've posted a Friday Favorite - but here's a sweet one: Traci Bixby Illustration! I know Traci from my "pre-kid" life, and she's opened up an Etsy shop, so I had to check it out. I ordered some of these note cards, and I LOVE them! (So much in fact that I hate to give them away).

I also ordered this little magnet for my friend's daughter, who I think resembles this fairy so much. She loved it! Very high quality, well packaged for shipping, and oh so adorable!
