Shop of the week - Father Noodles

Our shop of the week this week is :: Father Noodles.

I'm starting to see more people with feather extensions in their hair. I personally haven't tried them but I do like the neon colors and purple I have been seeing lately.

How about dressing up your lips? Yes you read that right, dress up your LIPS with a tattoo. I've never seen these so to me they are new :)

So this right here caught my eye ( my 6 year old daughter's eye too). You take these crystals and iron them onto your hair ( it looks like with a straighter?   I haven't done anything ( with heat) with my hair in a long time.

She also has some jewelry too. Go ahead and head over to her shop and check it out.

Shop of the week - Lu & ED

Well what can I NOT say about our shop of the week?
Cody from Lu & Ed is awesome on every level. She makes these adorable one of a kind monster plushes. And when I say one of a kind I really mean it, she cuts them out by hand without a pattern.
Mon-stors are a copyright protected original creation created by Lu & Ed. They may not be replicated, copied or reproduced in any way 

I don't know about your kids, but my kids don't like cleaning up their bedroom. Cody came up with this awesome monster that "eats" dirty laundry, toys, really anything you put in it. So when the kids is cleaning up their rooms they can think about it as the monster really eating what they feed it:) 

See this one is "eating". I really LOVE these <3

Item of the day 6/12/12

Today's item of the day is :: The Travelghan.

What is a travelghan?
A travelghan is a blanket that you take and put in your vehicle to cover up with.

Fold it so the edges meets in the middle

then you roll it up. Button the strap and store it under your set or any where. The color options for these are endless. 

As I'm having to take road trips to doctors for my son, I have realized that it would be easier if I had a blanket that I can just roll up to store in my truck so my kids or I can have a blanket when needed and not have to worry about getting one from the house before I walk out of the door.
This travelghan measures approximately 36 1/2 inches long. Fold it in 3rds and it up like a sleeping bag and store away in your vehicle.
*Great for kids ( and small kids) to cover up with.
*Great for adults to cover up their legs with.
Please allow 2 weeks for me to make the item.
Closer : Buttons
Made in a smoke free home.
In the note to seller please list the color(s), up to 3, when you check out.
You can find it in my shop here.
Remember when you order a travelghan I will make another one ( at no extra cost to you) and take it to the local children's hospital. They make great blankets to have when you have to stay at the hospital with your loved ones because they don't take up as much room as a folded blanket would take.

Item of the day 6/7/2012

Today's item of the day is :: New Born Knitted hat::

I will be honest, I can NOT knit with 2 knitting needles to save my life. I don't know why but I just can't pick it up. So if I don't knit, how do I make knitted hats? I loom knit. You can find the looms at Wal Mart where the yarn is or any craft store. They are really easy to do once you get the hang of it. I like to use chunky yarn for the ones I make.
I can make them with out a brim or 

With a brim. I personally like them with the brim. 
I make them from babies to adult. My husband drives a truck over the road and I made him one when it started turning cool last year and he said it was really warm.

We all love our hats!! <3

Item of the day

Every day I will choose one item from my online store and feature it here.
Today is item number 20 - Baby Round Ripple Afghan. If you read my post yesterday you have seen a picture of it, if not....here it is.
I love to make afghans, also known as blankets,but this type is one of my favorites to make. I works up really fast and its not hard at all to make. This one is large enough for a baby through toddler. I can also make them child size, teen size, and large enough to sit on the couch and cover up with. However I can also go larger and make them the size for your bed :) I really need to make one for the kids' beds and maybe my bed.
You want one the colors of your favorite sports team? No problem as long as I can find the colors. If I can't find them in my local area I can go on the internet and find it. 

The more colors the more stripes I can do. I LOVE colorful blankets!!

All of my items are handmade by me, with you and your child(ren) in mind. Since they are handmade, no two items have a mirror image. This baby round ripple afghan, with the yarn that I used, measured about 35 inches wide from widest points. ( My tape measure moved down a little when I took this picture)

If you have an idea for the way you want your colors to be please let me know. I can do them with a color in the middle, a different color for the large body, and then go back and do the last few inches in the color of the middle ( like I did in the blue and white one above).

Or I could do the blanket in a one color and do the last few inches in a different color like the pink and white one above. :) 

Or I could do them with whats called a variegated color yarn. This one kinda reminds me of  tie dyeing.

If you like rainbows and would like one in rainbow colors....no problem I can do it. As you can see there is no end when it comes to the choices.

Time to catch up and get this going.

First off, I'm sorry I haven't been on here since December. We did finally move and then life got in the way. But now it is summer vacation time and the kids don't have to go to 100,974,653,9373,0988,7635 different places so I have time to focus on June's Pretty Things.
A couple of important things I would like to mention...
The last blog that I posted in December was about BOSO ( Buy One Send One) travelghan. I have decided to keep this going so when ever you purchase a travelghan I will make an extra one ( no extra cost) and take it to MCG Children's Hospital. You can find the listing for the travelghan here .
The second important thing is that I have new items in the online store. I try to list something every week rather it be a new item or a ready to ship item.

I listed the baby round ripple the other day. This listing is for you to customize one to the color(s) you want it to be. They take me 2-4 days, maybe 5 days at the tops, to make depending on how much time I get to work on it.
Stop by when you get a chance and check out the store. I'v heard of some people already starting to Christmas shop so go ahead and get your orders in before the rush starts.
