Today will be a DOUBLE FEATURE –


Hi to all,
My name is Beth, I’m 24 years old. I’ve been married to the love of my life and highschool sweetheart, Jeremy, for 4 years (been together 6 years). We have a beautiful daughter, who is almost 2 years old. She sure is handful sometimes but we love her so much!

I started sewing when my fiance (husband now) went to college in Wyoming for a year. I spent everyday with my grandma who taught me how to sew. She helped me make my first quilt for Jeremy and I in a week! Yeap a week, and since then i’ve been sewing like a crazy lady. I have made 6 king size quilts for me, i havn’t been able to part with the big projects i make. I also have made many, many purses/bags, potholders, placemats, table runners, and small quilts and wall hangings.

I started to scrapbook after Jeremy and I had our daughter. I have 4 12X12 scrapbooks of just her already! I fell in love with this hobby. It has turned into much more than just scrapbooking, i make cards, calanders, and much more. In the beginning of June 08′ i made 200 programs for my Brother-in-laws wedding, boy was that a task but i loved doing them.

So I guess you could say that i am very creative and love my two hobbies and someday i hope to have many more hobbies.

Beth will be offering up a set of gift tags.  Just in time for the holidays.  Won’t your packages look great?

CHRISTMAS gift tags/favor tags  handstamped  snowman and MORE set of 16

The other feature today is from ZADYBALL.

What is a ZADYBALL you ask?  I am glad you asked.

Here is one right now :   Hoots the Owl - ZadyBall(TM)

That is “Hoots” and he is a best seller with ZADYBALL.

Meet Hoots. He’s looking for a good home. He’s a bit of a night owl, but he’s ready to play any time! Squeeze his adorable face, and he’ll squeak!

Make Zadyball™ your baby’s first toy! Zadyball™ is easy to grab and hold, soft to cuddle, and makes the perfect lovey!
Each Zadyball™ is made with 100% cotton, super soft flannel and stuffed with high loft poly-fil. A Zadyball™ is about 7 inches in diameter with 16 knotted strings, each about 1/2 inch wide and 5 inches long.

What is a Zadyball™?
A Zadyball™ is designed first of all with babies in mind. They are soft to hold and cuddle, and have lots of strings to grab and rub.
Lots of babies have a “lovey” and many times the item they pick has something for them to rub – whether it’s the corner of a blanket or the nose on a teddy bear. The knotted ends of the strings are great to fulfill baby’s need for something to rub!

Why Babies love them:
1. Easy to grab and hold on to from a very young age
2. Good for teething
3. Soft to cuddle
4. Knotted ends are very soothing to rub
5. Makes a great lovey

Why Toddlers love them:
1. Once a lovey, always a lovey
2. Soft to cuddle (everyone loves soft things!)
3. Easy to throw and catch, especially when you are just learning how

Why Mommies love them:
1. Babies love them and we love our babies!
2. Easy to clean, just throw in the wash!
3. Safe!
4. Soft enough that you don’t have to worry about things breaking or anyone getting hurt when it is thrown around


This is my second shop. View my feedback at

I am a stay-at-home mother of two wonderful children, ages 2 and 4.

When my son was about 6 months old, he had a toy giraffe with a knotted string for a tail. He loved playing with the string, and would rub it to help him fall asleep.

He loved it so much, that I thought it would be great to create something for him that had lots of strings for him to play with. So, that is how the Zadyball was born — out of love for my son.

I hope that you and your family will enjoy Zadyball as much as we have. My four-year-old son still won’t sleep without his!
