Trying out adult yoga/pedicure socks!

Tried making adult yoga/pedicure socks. They look cute but the sizing is a little off. I used my own feet to measure but for a female I have really big feet! HAHA
Here is what they look like though!

I have come back from the dead!!! Haha just kidding. I know I have been absentee for a while. I have been super busy.  My son just started coach pitch baseball, and my shop has been super busy with baby braacelets and such. I also added a new line of kids yoga socks to my shop and I am going to be making adult yoga socks too!
Here is the child size yoga socks that I have for sale now. These can be made in any colors and also made any size.

My family and I have also started a new Etsy shop as a family. My husband loves to go rockhounding and majored in Geology for a long time. I have been enjoying going with him and so has our 5 year old. If you like rocks, gems and fossils then you should check out our shop! We also sell supplies for jewelry! Check it out!

More to come soon!

Newest in shop!

I have added the sleep masks to my shop! What is neat is not only can you purchase one mask for your kiddo, but I have a listing for a party pack! So if your little girl is having a birthday party sleep over or just a fun slumber party then you can purchase masks for them to wear!

Kids and Reading

This morning I came home today from taking my son to school and I the roads were bad. I live in Colorado and when it snows it is usually cold and last night it was raining and then started to snow and was cold. So the roads this morning were icy and so I came home and sat at the computer to relax and de-compress. I made myself some coffee with my nice new milk frother I got for Christmas and check my email, facebook and twitter. I came across this tweet that Parents Magazine posted about reading to your kids. Talks about how reading to them at an early age will encourage them to become readers and like and want to read.
Now when I was pregnant with my son I read to him in my stomach. We had one of those microphone things that you put on your stomach so the baby can hear. We didn't read a lot to him when he was younger, but when we turned say 2 then we started to read every night to him. Now that he is 5 and in Kindergarten learning how to read himself we are starting to read to him more and encouraging him to read some of it to us. We are also starting to read more chapter books to him since he is old enough that he will keep his attention when there are no pictures to look at.

I am curious as to how many of you that have kids read to your little one when you were pregnant and how often you read to them now?

If you would like to see the article I read here is the link to it! I follow them on twitter and they post some really interesting stuff!

When my son was a baby and was teething I tried many different things to help. We tired baby orajel, teething rings, pacifiers, and other things. The one that he seemed to like the best though was either ice in a washcloth or just a wet washcloth that I put in the freezer. So I thought what would be a great cobination of the two for me to make? I came up with the idea of a TEETHING POUCH!!! So here is the newest addition to my shop. I hope that it catches on and mom's try it for their kiddos.
So here you can put ice cubes in it.

It has velcro to close

It is made of 100% cotton yarn so its OK for babies mouths. You can either put ice cubes in it for them to chew on or you can wet the entire pouch and stick it in the freezer! Pass this on to your friends and families! Here is the link to see it in my shop!

Working on lighting in pictures

I am working today on using my new camera and trying to get some good shots of my items. It is hard but I know if I keep working at it then I will get the hang of it. Today the light is very bad too and usually I am working with natural light but today is snowy and cloudy and cold! So my light isn't great, but here are some of the shots I have taken today. Any advice would be helpful!
I tried both flash and no flash.

I lightened it up a bit with Picasa.

My puppy was helping lol

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you all! I hope you all have a wonderful 2015! I rang in the new year with my husband and my 5 year old son watching Back to the Future Trilogy last night. Found it fitting cause in the second one they go to 2015, which my son found funny cause what they thought back in the 80's that 2015 would look like is nothing like that!
He managed to barely make it to midnight then went straight to sleep. I wasn't sure if he was going to make it or not. I worked on some inventory while we were watching the movies also, and rang in the new year this morning with a sale! So maybe that is a sign that its going to be the start of a great year!
Happy New Year from my family to yours!
