Wow! Closet on Queen Creek!

I did a trade with Rhonda from Closet on Queen Creek for some flour sack towels with my company's logo on them. WOW! These are gorgeous and SO well made. Rhonda is so very sweet and very talented. Check out what she came up with:
I got a set for my Mom's birthday and a set all for me. :) Be sure to check her out. She can digitize any logo/picture to make something custom just for you. Brilliant!
I love her flour sack towels because they are huge and so absorbant. I use them for everything... including a set to roll out dough in. Have I convinced you to get some yet? :) Truly, they are wonderful.

Ho-Ho-Holiday Trades!

Lots of traded goodies coming up with:

Linda at OweWhoaWhen for some embroidered recycled longies:

... and LOTS of goodies are coming from a trade I am doing with Carmella of Clear Hills Honey Company.

Tons of lip balms in great flavors like Cheesecake, Chai Tea, Sugared Violet, and Creme Caramel.Honey Cream Lotion with Shea Butter in scents that sound good enough to eat! Bee Balm and Knitters Balm.... And this sweet little guy:

YUM! I can't wait

Whooooooooo! Check out this SuRpRiSe Stuffed Woolie Creature from Karma at Pirate Bootie Baby! I won this using HC$$$. I emailed Karma my daughter's favorite colors and she surprised me by making the animal of her choice. There is lavendar inside for calming aromatherapy too. West will love this because she has taken to owls lately and loves flying around the house hollaring, "WHOOO!" Ahhh! Perfect!

Scored this little number from Naptime Designs. HUGE going out of business sale right now and free shipping. Bonus!

1 buffalo
1 bear
1 moose

I won this set. Thank you, thank you to Kristena from Dreamseeds Organics for these cool ornaments. The artist always explains things best so here is her explanation in her own words:

"Made with unrefined beeswax we strain ourselves. These delightful creatures will don your space with the delights of the mountains.
In Jackson Hole, we love our wild animals and they represent strength and power to those that live here.
We add our Dreamseeds Organics blend of essential oils called Holiday Spice for an aroma that is perfect for the fall and winter."
They are so cute and smell amazing!

.... Now maybe one of these days I will remember to take pics of the cute dresses and tunics that I am sending out as MY half of the trade. LOL! :)

More Holiday Gifts for Scout and West! :)

Some super comfy lounge pants are coming for West! We got a great deal from the kind mama behind Bags N Wipes N Things. The print we got is extra special to me because my sweet Gampie always had duck decoys around his house growing up. I saw this print and instantly thought of him.

More Holiday Trades....

Loving this. Totally loving the spirit of Holiday trading and I have made some good ones. These have resulted in relationships with wonderful WAHM's and some fabulous, unique gifts under the tree for my wee ones.

I have really enjoyed sewing for trades as well. Are you a WAHM with feedback who would like to set up a trade for the Holidays? We all have more time than money these days, eh? :) Email me! :)

Without further ado.... here are my latest trades:

I traded with Jennifer of Bumblebear Children's Wear for a couple of hand painted shirts for my piglets. We are getting:

... all with longsleeves, though. She has great ideas and unique designs. Check her out! What a sweet mama!

We also traded with Andrea of Deep Elemental Dyes. She has store fronts on this congo as well as here.

Both of my girls are getting dresses like the one below... but I left the final say on colors up to the artist. How great are these?
OK. I paid outright for this one... but who wouldn't?!?!?! Soooo soft and cute! This Draftbusting Set is from Sarah at Symbiotic Stitches on The Leaf Shoppe congo. Such a reasonable price for such a darling set. LOVE IT!
