A New Shop

I have opened a new shop on Etsy! Yep! When I looked over the Memories To You shop I realized that my magnets were getting lost in the shuffle. The new shop, Hold It!, will feature just the magnets and a new line of products that I am working on. It is still a work in progress so keep checking back as I will be adding to the shop every day.

Military Monday

Welcome to the latest Military Monday! The featured shop this week is the Hungry Hippie. Check out all the cool stuff in her shop!

The kiddie travel play mats are so cute and quite handy. I may need one for our next airplane trip!

Have an aspiring chef in your family? Check out the cute little apron for kids!

Of course I had to feature an item that goes along with my favorite thing in life - coffee! Coffee cozies are all the rage these days and Hungry Hippie has them in fun fabrics.

Military Monday

Welcome to Military Monday! Each Monday I am going to blog about fantastic shops owned by members of the Homefront Team. Homefront members are military spouses and even a few active duty military! I’m not going to do interviews or anything like that. I am just going to present you with a small sampling of their shop and tell you my favorites. In fact, the shop won’t even know they are featured until this post comes out (‘cuz I’m sneaky like that!).

Today’s shop is A Stone’s Throw. Stone’s has a hubby in the Marine Corps. I know this because she has a USMC bag in her shop! Her shop has all these cute bags, headbands, wristlets and even wine bags! The shop has had really cute bags for a while, but my favorites are from her newest fabrics. Ok, I’m a sucker for Amy Butler and she has a bunch of Amy Butler goodies in the shop. Anyway, if you want a headband to match your bag - she has that! I have been eyeing her headbands for a while and hoping my head would change shape so I could wear them. Since that isn’t going to happen, I will just have to tell all of you and let you buy them.
