Eco Baby Line

Since Apple Pie has come along I have to urge to make stuff for her~ of course I do that's my nature right!
So I decided I want to start an Eco Baby Line of stuff~ Handmade of course.
I was going to keep it under my business name Radical Recycks but after much thought I feel it's better under it's own name (
I have yet to open up shop I wanted to make sure it was all stocked up first. I only have a few of the million things made that are swirling in my head but I know it will come together soon. 
I also need to make my logo~ I have an idea just have to figure out how to make it lol!
These are some Teething Necklaces made from Old shirts.

Stay Tuned for the Grand Opening (shooting for April 1st since my Feb 1st deadline has pasted lol)

Love is in the Air!

Happy Valentines Day!
I have been saying for weeks what a stupid hallmark holiday it is and how much I hate it. 
Truth is I kind of like it... I get to make stupid gifts for my hubby!
This year I Crocheted a big Heart and hung it from his rear view mirror. 
I asked him what he was going to do with it and he said put it next to his giant Olive that i made him.
I made him a giant stuffed olive because you know " Olive You".

Hope you had a Fabulous Day!

February Photo A Day

I kept noticing all these pictures on Instagram that had the hashtag #JanPhotoADay so I was intrigued as to what it was all about. Seems this gal who's instagram name is FatMumSlim puts these lists together on what to take a picture of each day. I got on board in Feb and it's so much fun!! 
Here are my pictures so far.
 I will post the rest on this post as the month goes on.
