Tea Pockets and Girl Scout Cookies

Introducing - Pockets. First up, Tea Pockets. These are really fun to make. And, they're not just for tea, either.

Also, we looked for Girl Scout Cookies this week and found out that different areas of the country get different cookies. We don't get "real" Girl Scout Cookies - you know the ones with the fancy names - tagalongs, trefoils, etc. No, we get these crappy, full of corn syrup, generic, ones with names like - peanut butter cookies?!?!?! It turns out that there are TWO companies that make the cookies for the Girl Scouts and they ship to different parts of the country. So, I'm on the lookout for anyone with access to the REAL cookies. Anyone?? Bueller??

New work up...

Got some new work photographed today. Actually got a lot of "to do's" done today, for a change.

This is a new set of wash cloths. Included are three bamboo cloths. They are so soft, you wouldn't believe it.

I will be putting up more items throughout the week. Next, I hope to start a new paper goods series.

New work and new feature

I have some new work I need to photograph this weekend. Then, I will update my shop, hopefully, on Monday. I have a new series of knit "pockets" for credit cards or business cards and tea packets. I will also be putting up some bamboo washcloths - sooooo soft. :)

Also, I moved the notice on the right hand column up to the top. I will be adding suggestions for people to do to help stop the spiralling self-fulfilling prophecy of job loss. I noticed the news is finally doing stories about how one job lost affects hundreds and more. How skipping that Sunday brunch can lead to the loss of your own job. Please pass them on.
