Is The Gift You Give Unique or Forgettable?

I believe that because every new baby is unique; the gift you give should be also. Not the same ol same that thousands of other moms to be are opening at baby showers across the country.

Consider a gift that's carefully handcrafted.  With a tiny bit of love in every stitch.

Which do you think the new mom will remember longer:  one of several flannel or cotton knit blankets from the big box store - or the handcrafted one created in her favorite color(s)?

The 50 or so little tshirts she received - or the tiny beanie featuring her favorite animal, movie or cartoon character?

Or maybe that football cocoon set - created in traditional brown and white or customized with the colors of dad's favorite team.

When looking for baby gifts that become treasured family keepsakes, the answer is simple - handmade is always better!

The B Behind the Crown

I don't think I have ever taken the opportunity to properly introduce myself and my little hive to all of you.  (You have no idea how much I wanted to end that sentence with "all y'all".  My southern is showing)

So, in order to give y'all (there it is) a glimpse behind the scenes of Queen B's Busy Work, here are a few little facts about me - the Queen B!



-  I was born and raised (and still reside) in the mountains of western North Carolina.

-  From as far back as I can remember I have loved arts and crafts, from creating outfits for my Barbies, to coloring, to drawing, cross-stitch, sewing, and crochet - I have done it all!

-  I believe a brand new box of crayons is one of the great simple pleasures in life.

-  At one point I considered going to art school, but was talked into studying something "more practical".

-  I met the Man of the House in a discussion group for our college English Lit class.  So, there was a good reason that whole art school thing never happened - otherwise I might have missed out on meeting him!  ❤



-  I taught myself to crochet by using one of those "learn to crochet" kits with the book, hook, and some yarn.  There has been a lot of trial and error along the way.

-  I worked as a breastfeeding peer counselor and lactation educator for 13 years before making the decision to begin my own business.  With a lot of support and encouragement from the Man of the House.



-  I often give my handcrafted items as gifts to family and friends.  Almost everything in my shop was first created as a surprise for, or at the request of, someone close to me.

-  I have a rather serious crush on coffee.

-  I am a football fan.  More to the point, I am a Carolina Panthers fan.  Sundays (with the occasional Monday or Thursday) from August through January, you will likely find me in my comfy pants and a Panthers tshirt cheering on the boys in black and blue.  Keep Pounding!



That's me in a very small nutshell.  Anything else you want to know?  Just ask!

This Time It's Personal

Recently, my little grandson had stopped playing nearby to watch as I was working on a cotton bath pouf for an order.  He asked what I was making and if it was for him.  I explained.  And that's when he told me he needed a puff for his bath.

Well, how could I say "No" to that little cutie?

 I let him dig through my stash of cotton yarn extras and odds and ends to choose the color he wanted and set to work.





I think he's happy with it.  And he's already telling me he needs another one!

The Proper Care and Feeding of Cotton Facial Rounds

Perhaps you've been curious about my Cotton Face Scrubbies, but you're not quite sure how they would fit into your skincare routine.  Or maybe you're concerned that they'll be difficult to clean and care for.  

www.etsy.com/listing/193323871/


Wonder no more!  Today, I'm going to demonstrate how I use the rounds for every step of my own skincare routine and how I care for them between uses.

I use two cotton rounds each time I cleanse my skin.  First, I wet one pad.


I apply my eye makeup remover to one side and gently wipe away the day's eyeliner and mascara.


 I then rinse that round, flip it over and apply my cleanser


The texture of the crocheted pad gently exfoliates while I wash!

After rinsing my face with clear water, I then use a fresh round to apply my toner.

I let a few used cotton rounds pile up beside the sink between washes.  You could just as easily put them in your laundry hamper or basket.

When I'm ready to wash a load of towels, I just toss in the rounds right along with them.

Yes, it's really that simple!  My cotton scrubbies are 100% cotton, and machine wash and dryable.

Once they've been cleaned, my cotton rounds get stored in a glass jar in my bathroom until the next use.
You can get your own set of facial rounds with mason jar HERE
