Wait for it. . . . wait for it. . .

Tomorrow Creative Mamas Congo celebrates its 1st Birthday. Crafts by Christina has been with the congo since the very beginning and is rather excited about it. I'm also excited because I've watch the congo continue to thrive since I first took over the congo. On the same day that the birthday celelbration begins, the Great Cloth Diaper Hunt also begins. It is massive and will last all month. I already have quite a few items up, and plan to do some more great things through out the month. If you haven't stopped by in a while, you might want to check the congo out, as we also have a new look, courtesy of Christina of Joyful Rose. I think you are going to like it.

Wrapping up customs and getting ready for vacation.

Summer is creeping up (or at least when you have a busy May ahead of you) and I will be wrapping up custom orders next month and getting ready to move and go on vacation. Sound like a lot to do? Sure is. I will be taking the last of my custom orders this coming week, and then will only be doing crocheted custom orders for the rest of May and majority of June. At the end of July I plan on opening back up custom orders for sewing (crocheted custom orders will be avaiable off an on through June and July). We (my husband, two sons and I) will be moving to Ft. Leavenworth, and Crafts by Christina will be relocating there for the 10.5 months that my husband is at ILE. In the meantime, I will still be stocking at Creative Mamas, probably just not as much as usual. When I open back up, I will be working on a few new items that I am currently doing testers for (Mai Tei, and wrap in military fabric themes). So check back frequently to see what new items I will have available, and in the meantime, get ready for the GCDH!

Creative Mamas Congo and (by virtue of that) Crafts by Christina is in the Great Clith Diaper Hunt

It's that time of year again! The Great Cloth Diaper Hunt starts May 1st. The GCDH is just that, a great scavenger hunt. It starts at and takes you through various family and earth friendly websites to look for the "diaper" icon. There are prizes worth hundreds of dollars to be won either daily or the big prizes at the end. There is no charge to do it, and it is really rather fun. My congo participated last year and I did the hunt as well (sponsors don't qualify for the grand prize). If you interested, I'd say go check it out, you might really enjoy it. Let them know that Creative Mamas sent you too.

Military Custom Orders

I will be able to take military themed custom orders until 30 May. After that, I will be taking a small break, and will be doing one order every two weeks roughly. On June 16th I will be starting on a much deserved vacation with my husband. It will be the first real vacation we've had together since before the deployment in the fall of 2007. We plan to settle down in our new home middle/end of July. Once we get settled, I will open military customs back up again.

In the meantime, I can do crocheted orders, as those only require yarn and hook, not sewing machine, cutting table, fabric, pins, and patterns. If you would like to place an order, I often have a custom spot stocked at my store Crafts by Christina on I also have a WAHM listing on as well as, but am more likely to respond quickly on my HC or CDN.
