Simple and inexpensive! Funky and fun! Each four pack includes various colors and sizes.
Holds a ton of stuff. you are only limited by your ability to carry it. Bottom seam is double sewn for added strength.
I was able to fit a gallon of milk, a half gallon of juice, 2 - 20 oz water bottles, a large box of cereal, a large bag of pretzels and 3 cans of soup (I could have fit more but thats all that was in my pantry. sad.)
T-shirt colors and prints vary by availability. There will never be any profanity or questionable graphics. If you have a preference between the ones in the first or second picture just let me know or if you want a specific color let me know. There may be an small additional charge for specific colors depending on t-shirt availability at the second hand store where I get my shirts. convo me for details.
these are currently being sold for $8 for a 4 pack of bags. You can't go wrong.
And my favorite product ever . . . .
This is one amazing bag!!!
Knitted from 100% cotton yarn it is super sturdy, washes easily and dries fast. It packs small but can stretch to amazing proportions.
How much can it carry?
* groceries - I fit 2 quarts of milk, 2 quarts of juice, liter of water and a 20 ounce bottle of pop, a box of mashed potatoes, a jar of peanut butter and 4 cans of soup.
* at the pool- 2 towels, snacks and drinks, pool toys and two swimsuits.
* hang it on a hook for a creative laundry hamper in your child's room. the mesh design provides for lots of air flow to keep the clothes from stinking.
* overdue library books - about 20!
How big is it?
this one is about 15"x9" unstretched. Stretched? that just depends. This is in a beautiful soothing color that reminds me of a Minnesota lake, blues and greens and lavenders weave in and out of one another like ripples in the water. Short handles for easy carrying.
I also have a very sweet one in light pink, dark pink and white with short handles and one in summer brights (like a box of Runts candy . . . ) and long over the shoulder handles.
Like the bag but want a specific color? Let me know. I can make it in about a week. Some yarns require an additional charge.
These are currently being sold for $16.50. If you want to buy yarn somewhere else i can knit it into a bag for $10. i recommend yarn from www.soulfulhues.etsy.com regardless of where you get it I need 200 yards of yarn (give or take) in worsted (give or take) weight. Cotton is preferable but i suppose anything will work.
see my shop at www.pbandj.etsy.com for more details.
First we have adopted ourselves a fine little puppy named Lucy. We got her at the Humane Society and cannot say enough good things about our far above average in every way animal shelter. Nor can we do enough to help.
So here is what we are starting with . . . Twisted Puppy dog toys. The fetching, herding (my dog herds her toys. its pretty funny. but she is a collie. its what she does), tugging, chewing, hide and seek, all purpose toy.
This is a very special dog toy. want to know why?
Because we recently got a puppy from the humane society. Our humane society seems to be above average in every way. we not only fell in love with the dogs but with the staff and were eager to become volunteers. unfortunately I am the only person old enough. But that is not enough to stop me!
For my 7 year olds birthday party she decided she wanted to have a dog themed party at the humane society. we compromised and will have it at our house and the kids will be making dog and cat toys, dog treats, and kennel blankets for the dogs and cats.
So we had to come up with a dog toy for them to make. . .
It was hard to concentrate though because my puppy Lucy kept chewing on everything and tugging on everything. Then out of nowhere inspiration struck. I had an idea for the perfect toy that a dog would love and kids could make. Then we realized PetSmart already had this design on the market. Oh well, at least we know it was a good idea. and ours is way cheaper.
made from 100% recycled materials this is a dog tested, kid tested, earth friendly, made by my kids (little girls ages 11, 7 and 5) perfect dog toy.
it gets better. for every toy sold we will donate $3 cash, a matching toy and a bag of treats to the humane society in your name.
Want one for free! Send us 300 pounds worth of Purina weight circles (proof of purchase) from the bottom of your Purina dog food bags plus $2 for shipping and we will pass them on to the humane society. our humane society redeems these for everything from food to office supplies.
I have an unlimited supply of these and colors and size vary. Let me know if you want one with pink or want to avoid pink (remember these were made by a bunch of little girls, there is a lot of pink but we did make some without) and let me know what size dog you have so i can try to find the perfect one.
These are currently being sold in my shop for $7.50. and before you balk at the price remember the proceeds go to a good cause.

I've got some nice big copper oak leaves that I've been making into talisman-like pendants. The leaves are my design, well nature's design, about 4 inches long from the top of the stem loop to the bottom of the leaf. You may click on each picture for more details.
I had to have one of the oak leaf pendants for myself. I like large bold pendants on long 24 inch endless chains that slip easily over my head with no clasps.
I am finally starting to own a nice selection of my own jewelry!

I just really HAD to show yall this. I feel like I'm not getting enough feedback on it and wanted to know what you wonderful ladies think! I'm a NAVY Brat and made this piece for a challenge for my Military Brats Team. I have more pictures and a description of it in my shop http://torimade.etsy.com/ and a couple other pictures that are not in my shop are in my personal blog at http://gollihughfamily.blogspot.com/ PLEASE leave comments in my blog, if you check it out and have any... or HERE, for that matter - even if you just look at this picture. :)
Also, perhaps we could do challenges, too? That would be WAY fun, I think. Not that there need be any prizes, just the opportunity to have a subject around which to create, ya know? :)

Birch Bark Handmade Soap is made using the highest quality ingredients available, including rich cocoa butter, smooth olive oil, and nourishing coconut oil. Ingredients such as brewed herbal teas, natural clays, real cream, and local honey make these soaps distinctive.
In my shop, you will find no animal fats, preservatives, synthetic colourings, parabens, pthalates, or sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates. I make both hot and cold process soaps in my Canadian kitchen, and am happy to accommodate special requests.
Pictured above are my Chocolate Peppermint soap, which is made with cocoa butter and peppermint essential oil which give it a light peppermint patty scent. You can read a review of it here. Also pictured is my Simple Simon bar, which is what I like to use on my baby. It's unscented, uncoloured, made with moisturizing oils and is perfect for sensitive skin.
Please pop on over to my Etsy shop and have a peek at these and many other soaps, including Peppermint Poppyseed, pictured above, and Tomato Complexion soaps! Happy lathering!
