Here I am using one of the new bookmarks featured in the Etsy Shop. These bookmarks are perfect for an active guy like me who is always moving my books from here to there. I hate it when a bookmark falls out of a book and I find myself reading the same thing over again.
Of course, I have to admit I don't actually give books a detailed read. I just kind of skim through the text. I open up the book, stare at the print, and say "Blah. blah, blah." Even though my reading style is superficial, I do want to know where I left off. I just have to figure out what's up with all these little black marks on the page. Maybe some of my followers can help me with that one.
This is George, back again with a suggestion for adults looking for a gift for a little one. Why not send them the whole package, block, ball, and blanket? What baby wouldn't want a clutch ball, an iSpy banket, and a discovery block. I know I would have loved opening a gift package like that.
Find all three of these items in the Baby Gift Section of our Etsy store. If you order all three we would wrap them and send a note from you if you request it when you order.
Hi, this is George. I know it's been awhile since I've blogged. My schedule has been so hectic. What with learning to run, push chairs around so I can climb on counters, and handle the stairs, I just haven't had much time to sit down and write. When I saw some of the latest items in the Cause for Crafting Etsy store, however, I knew I would have to make the time to write to my followers. Here you see me holding an iSpy blanket, one of the newer products I want to tell you about.
Everybody needs a Blankee. It's a comfort, it's a toy, and when you just need to get away from it all it provides the perfect hideout. I have two Blankees and I honestly could not tell you what I would do without them. These iSpy blankets make the perfect Blankee for your favorite baby.
Here I am inspecting the quality of the blanket. It is impeccably stitched, I was glad to hear it is also washable.
Purchase one of these blankets and a donation will be made to the Nurse Family Partnership, a very effective, highly rated organization.

Check back soon to see my next pick from the Cause for Crafting Etsy Shop.
Now there are two....one pink, one blue.
The first one we posted sold quickly but there are now two new iSpy blankets available for sale in our Etsy shop. If the patterns shown are not quite what you were looking for, two more will be posted soon.
What makes these adorable blankies truly comforting is that fifteen dollars from each blanket sold will be sent to the Nurse Family Partnership.
Some of our plans have changed since we began this endeavor and have been learning what works and doesn't, but one thing has not. We want to operate as an official 501 (c ) 3 nonprofit. On Thursday, after a visit to a lawyer, we initiated the process of obtaining that status. As a 501 (c ) 3 we will keep our operating costs low because taxes and some fees will be decreased. The good news for our crafters is that they will be able to take the value of the items they donate as a tax deduction. It is also important to us that our crafters and customers know they can trust us absolutely. We will be held accountable for managing the funds we receive and send out, giving added reassurance that we are doing things right. We've been warned this process may take a while but we will keep you posted as things progress.
Yes, we've posted baby toys, snoods, and butterflies. Lots of butterflies. Butterflies on sports headbands, butterflies on snoods, butterflies on bookmarks, and then butterflies all by themselves . There just hasn't been much on our site to appeal to guys older than toddler age.
Well today, in honor of the upcoming Day of Independence, we are introducing the perfect gift for the book loving men in your life. It is a book mark that gives them the freedom to toss that book anywhere and never lose their place, in a backpack, in a carry-on, on a nightstand, and yes, even on the floor. See our inexpensive but very useful new item by clicking on our Etsy store link. And as always, your purchase is a contribution to charity.
