1 Day til Christmas...

No more mail until after Christmas, I received an order on Monday which promptly went to the post office.

Unfortunately, I got sick at the final stretch of Christmas shopping and wasn't able to get the rest of my seasonal items up in my store. At least I'll have a head start for next year's Christmas items.

Today has been quiet, watched a couple movies and opened the first round of presents. My cat, Hexadecimal, got a pirate ship from my friend's mother. She seems more interested in her mouse toys and little snacks for now.

Time to go, having some good ol' Chinese food order in for dinner tonight.
Merry Christmas Eve!

Snowy Squishy News

It's snowing! Good ol' Wisconsin finally kicked into gear after a very mild summer. This week we are supposed to get over a foot of snow. I have pictures from last year's winter. I remember going out and getting the best coat for WI ever lol. It's so long/big it's almost like a sleeping bag you can walk around in :P Of course I have big winter boots but you can't see them in the snow. My dog loves it! We went out this morning for his walk and he started rolling around. I'm sure he'll be super happy tonight when we go out and there is a lot more snow to play in.
I'll have to get new pictures once this storm passes. I hope the rest of you who also live in WI stay warm this week (hey I have plently of scarves to help with that :P )!

A Merry Little Christmas Scarf

17 days til Christmas! Can you believe it? Today's new item is A Merry Little Christmas Scarf. You won't believe how wonderfully warm and soft this scarf is. I combined the softest materials to create this. This cheerful scarf is red and white with a hint of gold. It'll make a great holiday gift for anyone or for yourself :)

Holly Jolly Scarf

Happy Monday! Today I've posted a jolly scarf, it's very cheery and festive. It has a nice green homespun with gold in it with fuzzy red fur all around it, I thought it was a nice Christmasy mix.

Woke up pretty early to find the ground covered in white. There isn't much yet but the weather forecast says we are supposed to get over a foot this week :O It's a good thing I have all these scarves. :P
Of course in Wisconsin when the snow comes so does the frigid cold, had to find my winter boots and my jacket which might looks kinda like a sleeping bag you can walk around in-it's so awesome :D.

Anyway, I have a shipment of yarn coming in soon and more holiday scarves almost ready for sale so there will be a lot more coming soon!

If you want to see this scarf on Etsy click >here<.

Unisex Shadow Hat

Finally got my first winter hat for the season up! This hat is pretty stretchy, my own head is 22in around and my friend is 24in around and it fit both nicely. The brim around it is good for keeping ears nice and warm :) It's also stripy, which I didn't notice until about half way through making it. The whole thing is black but it's mixed with brown and white to give it a pretty cool look.

Click >here< to see it on Etsy.

Misty Moonlight Scarf

Happy Tuesday! I got Misty Moonlight Scarf up today. It's very silky and warm and I was SO excited when I got this in the shipment of yarn I had ordered. The eyelash was surprisingly silky. The base is a gray homespun while the eyelash switches between silver and black. Click on the picture to see more on Etsy.

Yesterday I re-listed Raspberry Ice Scarf, a fellow Etsian had bought one and I decided to make another since it was pretty :)
Pretty happy with yesterday actually, I had two main goals for the day: Finish a holiday scarf called Eggnog (will be up soon) and make and list the Raspberry Ice Scarf. Got both done and got another project ready before I went to bed last night. Also have a set I need to get started on but it's going to be crocheted so it won't take long :) Well I'm off for now and I probably won't be listing anything else new this week because of Thanksgiving so I wish everyone who is having one a great Turkey day and have fun on Black Friday! :D

Tutti Frutti Scarf

Another day, another scarf! I made Tutti Frutti for adults and children (though I was the only one able to model it) it's 60" in length which would be large (or extra-large depending on age) for a kid but they can be wrapped up and kept warm. Another store owner I know through facebook has a 5 year old who she made a 60" scarf for and she can get bundled in it quite well. Best thing is, even as they grow up, this scarf won't get too small. :)
The color combo in this scarf reminded me of a Tutti Frutti flavored Jelly Bean. So that's how it got the name because originally I was going to name it Candy Land scarf and it just didn't fit.

Click on the picture to be taken to the scarf on Etsy. :)

Sad Squishy News

Unfortunately, my start of today was not a happy one. My mother called to tell me one of her close friends and the women who has been there my whole life (helped raised me) had passed on.

There aren't any words that I can find right now to describe how wonderful a person she was and how strong. She was hit with so many hardships in her life and nothing ever broke her spirit, nothing ever made her stop helping to save animals and give them better homes. I have so many amazing stories and happy memories. I believe I'm sort of in shock...it's a weird detached feeling-I can't believe she's gone it's almost like I didn't think it was possible for it to happen to her.

I send my condolences to her family and hope that more people out there follow in her footsteps to save homeless or sheltered animals out there.

She was strong, a miracle worker with humans and animals, and most of all-she was loved.
RIP to my other mother. I will always remember and love you.

Fall Harvest Scarf

Fall Harvest Scarf is now up on Etsy. I debated for awhile even putting this one up. It looked so good with my clothes I wanted to keep it :P

Over the weekend I finished a very nice suede-like scarf order. I haven't taken a picture yet but since the order was for a friend I'll take one when he wears it.

Touch the picture to see more details about Fall Harvest.

Desert Scarf for Men


Yay! I finally got my first scarf for men up! I realize guys probably aren't looking around for scarves online but I figured it's nearing the holiday season and plenty of ladies are looking to get gifts and whether they'll admit it or not, guys get cold too :P

If you want to check it out click here.

In other news, I shut down the madeitmyself and shophandmade store sites. The views were there, the sales weren't. With all the new items I'm making it was also a hassle to have to update 4 stores at once. So I'm sticking with Etsy. This way I can spend more time making new items than working on making everything match up online. :P

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Caramel Apple Scarf

Yesterday was a success. Sugared Apple Scarf sold after barely being up for a day!

So next my little apple series is the Caramel Apple Scarf. Really I don't know why I'm such an apple kick...maybe my wallflower in my room is doing it...smells sooo good. Like walking around an apple farm. Anyway, this one is rich and a little more earthy with the caramely fur. Size long, stops just above my knee (I'm 5'4").
In other news I got my first custom order already this month and it's only the 3rd! I'm on a good roll :) So after a short lunch break I'm going to get started on that. Toodles!

Now time to get started on some holiday items!

Poisoned Apple Scarf

Finally going to let this one out. The Poisoned Apple Scarf! It's so dark and rich. First of the apple scarves that I'll be releasing.
I have so many scarves out now. I just love making them though, so much thought and inspiration goes into each color combination for me.
Hope everyone gets the Snow White reference used in my description. Thought that would be a fun little twist :D
Have a great Wednesday everyone. I'm determined to finish my first scarf for men today!

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

Raspberry Ice Scarf

Yay! I got Raspberry Ice Scarf up today! It's so pretty (and warm, don't forget warm :P) You can find it at any of my stores. There is only one in stock so hurry and snatch it up before someone else does!
Of course, you can always request one in a different size for yourself if you'd like :) I defiantly wouldn't mind making more.
Have a great Tuesday everyone!

English Rose Scarf - Breast Cancer Awareness

Another week, another scarf! Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I'm going to be super busy today so I made sure I got this beauty of a scarf up before I had to start running around.
This one is called English Rose. When I was making it the colors together just looked so...flowery. So I looked online and found that English Roses were very close in color to what I was making. Darker pink that fades to a light. Seemed like the perfect name to me! :)
This scarf is another one for Breast Cancer Awareness month, only this week left!

Cotton Candy Scarf - Breast Cancer Awareness

It's a Thursday and I'm posting a new item! :O Thought I'd try a little experiment and see if it would get the same amount of views as the scarves I post on Monday and Tuesdays.
Cotton Candy is ready for viewing at each of my stores (well, except Shop Handmade, that website is soooo slow and I haven't caught up yet.)
I think this scarf would defiantly be for any pink lover out there. Pinky Pink homespun and white fur fuzzies, what's not to love?! Don't forgot though, only about a week left for this scarf to be up for Breast Cancer Awareness month, don't miss out on helping a great cause!

Deep Sea Scarf

So today I listed the Deep Sea Scarf, gotta say I LOVED making this one. Every once and awhile I see two colors and instantly want to combine them. I believe the description in my shops explains it perfectly. :) I love the water and anything that reminds me of it will make my day.
When I woke up this morning I had actually planned on listing something completely different, as it turns out I hadn't finished taking the pictures for it. Whoops :P So I hope everyone likes this scarf.
Have a great day!

Wispy Soft Pink Scarf

It's monday! That means a new scarf is up. Could not for the life of me think of a name for this scarf, so thanks go to my mom for helping me out on this one :)
This scarf is really skinny but extra long so you can bundle into it how ever you like.
Enjoy your week everyone!

Puff o' Pink Scarf - Breast Cancer Awareness

New Breast Cancer Awareness scarf is now available at my shops. This scarf is wider and shorter than the usual styles I make but it's soooo fluffy and warm. I used a new type of homespun that is bulkier than what I usually use to make scarves but I thought the end result was really nice. You can find this scarf at any of my mini stores on my blog.

Remember, Squishy Products is happy to donate to the Breast Cancer Foundation of your choice.

~If none is specified all donations will go to http://www.bcrfcure.org/

More Squishy News!

Well what do you know! I have more Squishy News already! I sold my first item. Spooky Scarf! Hurray for October Sales this month huh. Well everyone loves a bargain :D
Sold it on Etsy...hope I get good feedback -crosses fingers-
Well that's all, for now. :)

Some Squishy News

In my news of the week so far I've recently opened shop at a couple other craft websites. Squishy Products is now on Artfire and Shop Handmade. I have links and mini shops on the side of this blog now so if you like any of the items you see on here you can just go to whichever store you'd like. If you also have your own store and have been looking to expand onto other sites so far Artfire is the easiest to work with. If you have an Etsy shop you can just import all your items so you don't have to spend hours updating it manually.

Shop Handmade on the other hand has been giving me some problems, very slow loading so I haven't been able to even get half my items up yet.

Also, the Made It Myself website is very easy. After working with it for a couple weeks now I know where everything is and have gotten used to the layout. I get a lot of views on my items too. No sales yet though (course I haven't gotten sales on any of them yet so I base it on views for now).

Well that's it for now, if anything new happens I'll be sure to update!

Clouds and Sky Scarf

Happy Monday! I choose a pretty scarf to put out this morning. As I wrote in my description of this scarf, to me it looked like the colors had been taken out of the sky and spun into a gorgeous fluffy scarf.
Check the side of my blog for links to my stores.

Enjoy!

The Pink Ribbon Scarf - Breast Cancer Awareness

Squishy Products is happy to donate to the Breast Cancer Foundation of your choice.
If none is specified all donations will go to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

This scarf is called The Pink Ribbon scarf and is the first (and so far the pinkest) in the Breast Cancer Awareness line. You can find it on my Etsy or my MIM.

Spooky Scarf

One of my favorite color combinations. I loooove orange. I almost didn't want to sell it so I could wear it myself. Instead I thought I'd be nice and sell it for only $10 this month as my little treat for my customers. :)
You can find Spooky Scarf on my Etsy or my MIM.

Trick or Treat!

Fun Flavors Creamsicle Scarf

So I decided to make this scarf with a knit/purl combo to create a block look for each color to stand out more. When playing around with the yarn I realized it made me think of Popsicle flavors. Then I thought-Hey! I have creamy homespun somewhere and that's how I got the idea to make this scarf. I'm always saying "I feel like a Popsicle" when outside in freezing Wisconsin weather, figured I should make a Popsicle colored scarf to keep people looking bright when everything around is just white :)
Hope you enjoy this scarf and if you'd like, you can check out more details at my Etsy or my MIM.

Loopy Licorice Scrunchie


New Scrunchie out today. The Loopy Licorice.
It's black, gray and white though the white isn't a bright white...it actually sort of reminds me of the filling of an oreo. I considered naming it the Oreo scrunchie but since the name of the yarn is licorice I went with that instead. If you want to get a better look at this item just click on it in the Mini Etsy and it will take you right to the store. :)
