I have really done a poor job of blogging. I am sorry if this is something you like on a website. I find that since I am human something needs to give and unfortunately that tends to be my website. I know I shouldn't let that happen but unfortunately when you are little ... a one woman show, something is usually sacrificed and for me it is my site.
It is very satisfying to design and sew my creations. I also love the interaction with customers when I am at a craft show/pop up location. Even with the products where I am a reseller. People appreciate that I only sell products I believe in. I often say, "it is my name on the business and that means a lot to me. I will never sell you something that I can't endorse." I want customers to love the products they buy from me.
I started sewing Infant Capes when my little "Grandbaby" Peter was born. I learned that snowsuits were no longer acceptable in car suits and this was what was being used as an alternative to blankets. Well from there adults wanted them for themselves. In particular Vikings Fans. Don't you know. After all I do live in Minnesota now. That makes me Italian by birth, a Canadian Citizen and a Permanent Resident of the United States. It does get confusing sometimes when people ask me where I am from. I am often told I have an accent.
Last Mouse Lost is the best fidgit you could ever want for your toddler, preschooler, or school age child. It is a strategy game for children 5 and up. But for everyone else it is like an endless supply of bubble wrap. Parents, Grandparents, Teachers, and counselors have come back to my booth to thank me for introducing them to the item. Watch Peter above as he explores the simple silicone disk. He figures out right away that he can turn it over and do it again and again, and again. Its great for in the car, at a restaurant, on a plane, in a train, at church ... where ever you want your toddler to sit quietly and entertain themselves.
