Crinkly Critters

This is a draft of Ollie and Ellie's (Crinkly Critters) "Display Bio." It will be displayed whenever they are sold in public (ie: craft shows/fairs, trunk shows, etc.) Tell me what you think. Like it? Don't like it? Take something out? Add something in? I would really like some feedback on it. Thanks!:)

"Hello! We're Ollie and Ellie, the Crinkly Critters! Our lightweight bodies are made from 100% upcycled fabrics. These are fabrics from clothes, PJs, and even bed linens! All of the fabric is cotton, machine washed and safe for little ones to chew... No germs here! Our backs are adsorbent terry cloth from upcycled towels! And our crinkly wings are adorned with yummy, colorful, safe-to-chew tags which will make teething gums very happy! So go ahead, give us a try! We promise we won't disappoint even toughest, or smallest, critic."

Craft Fair Info and a Surprise!

The Craft Fair will be held at:
Liberty High School
5855 Bartholow Road
Sykesville, MD 21784
On March 26 from 9am-3pm
And I am pleased to announce that at the Craft Fair I will be raffling off a wreath! At my table I will have the wreath displayed and Craft Fair attendees will be able to fill out a slip of paper with their name and either a phone number or an email address (or both) so I can get in touch with the winner after the Craft Fair. The slips of paper will be placed in a jar and I will pick out a name! I do not expect anyone to wait at the Craft Fair all day to see if they win the raffle, so I will be contacting the winner via phone or email;)

The only catch? You will not be able to see the wreath until the DAY OF the Craft Fair! Curious? Come check us out and enter the raffle:)

Until next time, toodles!

What Have We Been Up To!?

What have the ButterNuggets been up to? Why don't you just take a look and see!

Well there was my birthday:

Matt got me the awesome sewing machine!:D

And then Christmas:

Riley got everything he always wanted. Well, almost... ;)

We visited the National Aquarium in Baltimore:

Found a school for Riley to start at next year and even visited his class room!

Had a snow day and Riley went sledding by himself for the first time!

We made a snow family!

And even made snow ice cream!

Riley started a gym class with one of his BFFs, Jeremy:)

And we visited the Science Center in Baltimore!

So that's what we have been doing since December. Hopefully soon it will start getting warm outside and we can take our Spring/Easter pictures! Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time, toodles!:)

I'm Baaaaack!

Hello hello to all you crafty people out there!

So as you may already be aware, my 25 days of Christmas idea was not the best. I couldn't get it done! Between my birthday being a week before Christmas and having a 2 year old in the house it just was not possible. After I realized I didn't couldn't do it, I was very dejected. However, I am now ready to get back on and try again!:)

I am very happy to announce that on March 26th I will be a vendor for the very first time at a Craft Fair! My friend Erin and I are going to have tables next to each other. (You can find her stuff here.) The Craft Fair is at Liberty High School in Sykesville, MD and it goes from 9am-3pm. Hope to see you there!

Here are a few things I will be selling:

My new Crinkly Critters! They are Owls complete with yummy tags to chew and crinkly wings! The first picture is of the boy version of the Owl, his name is Ollie. The girl version (second picture) is much more pink;) Her name is Ellie.

Frames. (Please ignore the Sunchips bag in the background. lol!)

Burlap Wrapped Wreath with Black and White Fabric Rosettes

Burlap Rosette Wreath

Magnets like my Fabric Rosette Magnets and these Picture Magnets

Decorative Flower Balls much like my Felt Rosette Ball Ornament, although not all of them will be made out of felt.
Here are some tissue paper versions of the Flower Balls. I think I may paint the dowels a light green color. Or maybe different earth tones like someone suggested to me on Facebook.

Below are the fabric version of the Flower Balls.

And here are the felt flower balls. They are being displayed in a bowl instead of with the dowels.

Some Coasters!

And hair bows, head bands, and pins for all the little (or grown-up) girlies out there!

I am so excited to be experiencing a craft show for the first time. I hope this opens many new and exciting doors for me as a crafter:) Until then, I'll be busy creating!

Until next time, toodles:)
