Leah, the WAHM behind Whiffy Bean Bags, also sells Whiffy See-Its. Whiffy See-It's look like a pillow with a see through window and, inside the pillow are a number of small items that children can look for. The pellets inside the pillow are clear and scented. I am desperately seeking toys for quiet time for my oldest daughter who doesn't nap anymore. I think my oldest dd would love one of these and I think they'd make great gifts!
Leah makes a number of other great products. To learn more, check out Leah's blog here! Whiffy Bean Bags is also on Hyena Cart, where she sells WAHM samples.

I started making play food in December for my daughters for Christmas. We were very concerned this year about minimizing the number of plastic toys our children received for Christmas. We bought them a wooden storefront for Christmas, as well as a wooden cash restiger (that's how my daughter pronounces it!), and I made them a bunch of food to stock their store with.
So these are some of what I sent Jennifer for her son. My girls love their coffee cups, because they know how much I love coffee and we like to play Dunkin' Donuts! I hope Jennifer's son likes his too. I hope to start carrying these in my store soon.

Back in November, I traded with Burgh Baby Gear for 2 skeins of her "Cherry Tart" colorway. I used 1 skein to knit up these capris:
I'm happy with how they came out, but they've got little imperfections that keep me from wanting to offer them at full price. Which brings me to my first ever $HC auction. Starting on Tuesday, I'll be putting these capris up for $HC auction. The winner can use up to 100% $HC. If they don't have a lot of $HC, they can always use $HC to pay part of the winning bid and contribute paypal toward the rest.

I'm bringing up my problem because I've just discovered The Felted Sheep. The Felted Sheep offers felted items, including hand bags, but also handspun and dyed yarns. And these yarns are absolutely gorgeous! This yarn reminds me of a shiny, delicious granny smith apple.
The Felted Sheep is on both Etsy and Hyena Cart. Right now, she's got her handspun yarns listed on her Etsy shop, and if I just had some extra money right now...
Here is some roving she's got available. What I find really interesting is that if you like some roving but don't know how to spin, she'll spin it for you!

Here's a picture of one:
As I was reading her blog, I realized that she designed her own banner and logo for her Night Owls. I had seen her banner running on Hyena Cart, and I remember thinking how nice it looked. So not only is this mama talented at making diapers, but she also does nice design work! Here's the logo she came up with:

Genevieve at The Cloth Canoe offers fitteds and AIOs. Her diapers are turned and topstiched and feature side snaps. She just began offering minkee bamboo velour prefolds this week. She stocked this prefold this week at the Wonderful World congo but, not surprisingly, she's all sold out!
Her Twilight Canoe fitteds are night time fitteds and are all organic. Starting in February, all of her fitteds will contain hidden layers of organic bamboo cotton fleece only. Here's a picture of my favorite fitted from her gallery:

I've also crocheted a matching tea cup. I would have made two, but I ran out of yarn.
I know some people prefer the look of knit to crochet, but this colorway looks gorgeous both ways!
