A favorite project

There are some things I make, that I just love more than others.

Wrist Strap Key Fobs are one of those things. One of the first things I ever made and sold, now I get my kids involved with helping me make them.

These are a fun project because of the dozens and dozens and dozens (and so on until forever!) of choices of ribbon! Seriously, there is no limit to it. At the height of summer sales, and Christmas time  I have probably made 100 different of these in a single day.

I’ve done these as bridesmaid gifts, had a sweet 16, and I’ve done them for a 40 and fabulous birthday as favors as well.

I was surprised at first when I realized the versatility of these wrist straps. I now have them attached to more than just my keys. My camera, cell phone case and my sons game boy all proudly wear them. I slip this on my wrist while running to the car from the food store, bags in hand so I don’t have to dig them out from the bottom of my bag. I have even worn it on my wrist while running my daily 4 miles because I couldn’t stand the weight of my keys bouncing in my pocket. I have slipped it on my wrist while jumping on a roller coaster at Six Flags, since they kinda hurt in my pocket and I’m not getting a locker for just my keys!

These have made great gifts for him or her, dads/coaches, moms on the go and new teen drivers. The ability to personalize like I said is endless but I also love the idea of wearing my fangirl out for all to see, and I love my Jack Skellington, Harry Potter, and New York Rangers.

(Just to name a few)

Now of course I have a bunch more up in my shop and on my Facebook page, and so many more I haven’t even listed yet.

Gamer Girl

This is the phase I use when people ask about my daughter.

She’s a “Gamer Girl”.

Soon to be 20 years old, she is part of a generation of Tech Savvy online gamers.

Of course she’s so much more than just this,

but she and her friends, yes you Kat! (lol)  are the inspiration for this bangle set.

Not currently in my etsy store (sold out so fast!), it is always available made to order.

I love this stacking style of bangles and charms. But even more so the uniqueness if these custom made charms, so unlike anything you’ll ever find in the mall.

But why stop there?

Gamers often have gear, they have gadgets!

Between my 3 kids the costs run into the Thousands! And there’s dozens of gadgets/games and gear to go with that.

So, because of that I was also inspired to make…

(yup that’s right I can sew too!)

This custom printed cotton Retro Nintendo Controller “Gadget Bag”.

This lil clippy bag is water resident (a serious must for costly things!), fully lined, and heavily padded (that ipod is made of glass ya know!?). Its little size is deceiving (approx. 8x5in). This bag holds gadgets of many sizes, or makes for the perfect essentials bag (phone/keys/wallet/chapstik).

Of course, this is me pictured below, but this happens to be my 13 year old sons gadget bag.

So go ahead…

Toss it loose in your tote or book bag. Clip it to your belt loop on the go, or  just carry it like a clutch.
