Two of the items were necklaces I made for myself and wore myself for a while. I like unique pieces, so they're incredibly different from most other pieces you've seen. Even the classic ball necklace has a new, colorful twist. As I only wear my sapphire cat necklace now, I don't need these anymore. I can't wait to send them to someone who will love them as much as I did, if not more!

The other two are the knot scarves I've been mentioning on the facebook. These are really fun to make, and even more fun to wear! I test everything that I put up for sale, so of course I tested these very thoroughly. One of the tests I did led me to the conclusion that this would be a product that has to be hand-washed. Thankfully, no other problems arose, and the scarves are surprisingly strong, though it wouldn't be good to pull on it as it'll stretch and it might become more stringy if you pull too hard since they're made of cotton fabric. I had a lot of room to play with the scarves, so some are big and puffy, and some are thin and stringy (a unique look, even for such a unique product), and some are right in the middle : ) They are all in a loop, making it really easy to double up for the layered effect, or leave it as a long loop for a more unique look. There are also some really cool color combinations in the group that I almost want to keep for myself!

We also have some old favorites, like the character charms and the hoodie bags! The character charms are made from figurines and are made into the customer's choice of silver necklace (long or short), keychain, or phone charm. These are pretty popular, and they're what we started our shop with and something we will continue to sell, just because they're so much fun!

Our hoodie bags are easily our most useful item in the shop. I have a personal love for this item, because when I made the first one (4 years ago) it was slightly after I passed the lifeguarding test, and I was working as a lifeguard. This bag came to work with me every day and held anything and everything I could ever want. I remember being shocked that it could hold a boombox in it and not rip or break, especially since I sewed it by hand. To this day, that hoodie bag is still going strong, even though my sewing skills were much worse than they are now! It is stretched because of lots of heavy loads, but that negative is outweighed by the fact that during my last trip to NH, it held about 50 pounds of stuff, and it was still comfortable! Everything goes in through the head hole, which you can pull shut tightly, if you're walking through crowds and want to stop wandering hands. It's also at a great length to where it will go low enough that you can sling it over your neck, so you don't need to adjust the strap all the time! These bags are so awesome, I can't wait for someone else to try them! : )
Now that I've talked about our shop, I'm sure you want to try something, right? Well, I have this cute spring green knot scarf for you! This is one of the lighter scarves, which makes it nice for summer. I think this wouldn't even heat you up if you wore it on a hot day! It's a nice, subtle green that really brings out the colors of what you're wearing. This scarf is somewhere in between fluffy and stringy, making it a great casual scarf! It's also a nice length to be doubled up.
