Too hot

Here in the Pacific Northwest, we seldom get several hot days in a row. Generally speaking, temps hit 90+ degrees for a day or two, but also drop into the low 60's at night, with a breeze that comes along about the time the sun goes down.

Not this week.

It's been hot - too hot for the computers in the living room.

Blogging will continue when it cools off.

In light of all the recent changes, I decided to take a vacation last week. Thus why there have been no new posts.

Regular posting will resume tomorrow.

Quick Announcement

Well, in a short period of time, many changes in my life has occurred. The biggest, is that I am no longer going to be actively involved in The American Legion. This has occurred due to personal reasons, and is in NO WAY a denouncement of the wonderful organization.

That said, I now have a LOT more time for crafts and our Etsy store. Watch for many new products to come soon.

Little things

When I head to my American Legion Post, I carry a lot with me. I have a huge binder-turned-planner, paperwork, my cover bag which holds my cap, tie, medals, etc, then my normal stuff like a wallet, lip gloss, mints for the meeting and so forth.

The problem I always have is that with big tote bags, that means big, deep pockets. These pockets are not good to carry small cell phones in - you cannot find them quickly!

So, I started making small cell phone cases on clips. Any time I have to take a big tote, I clip the case onto the outside. Problem solved.

My kids liked the idea so much they wanted their own so that they could clip it to their pants or backpack.

I decided the other day to make a few and put them in our Etsy store and see what happens. They are approx. 3" x 4", stretchy, and fit most cell phones and mp3 players. So far I have listed two:

This one is done in shades of grey and blue.

And this one in bright colors.
Come check our Etsy store for more information, and watch for more colors soon!
