Creative Contest

Oh my have I been remiss on blogging!! Shame on me! I wish I could say it was because I've been SO busy filling orders, but alas that is not the case :( As a matter of fact, this is the slowest season I've had since my first year selling online. I'm not sure whether it's the economy or if I need to revamp my Sassy store.

I think after the New Year, I may try a little revamping and see what happens. Maybe more aprons for little girls (other than my art aprons). Maybe I'll even try my hand at making baby booties. I think I also might need to make more items for older children since other than my art aprons and monster dolls, most of my items are for babies and toddlers.

That being said, I have decided to have a little contest. Let's see how creative you can be! Here's how it'll work. You give me an idea of what new item(s) I can make and carry in my Sassy store and if I like the idea(s) enough, I'll make the item and give you the first one! Who knows--if I like several of the ideas, there could either be several winners or you can win more than one item! Sound like fun? Just post each idea separately (so I don't get confused or miss any ideas in the shuffle). I'll choose a winner(s) on Dec. 17th. That gives you a little over a week to come up with some ideas. So--get your thinking caps on moms and let 'er rip!

Crayon roll, which could also be a crochet hook roll or whatever really :) Very versatile

Please consider making a doll sling! We carry the Nova Natural sling in our shop and everyone loves it. A beautiful doll sling would not only be popular, it would help children practice to be babywearers later (see Ten Reasons to Wear your Baby: http://alturl.com/3ht9c ).

Fabric activity books (also called "quiet books")! Some have pages where you can take shapes on and off (usually fastening with buttons) to "build" a picture, like snowmen or hopscotch designs. Some have a different fastener on every page (zipper, laces, velcro), and pictures showing that fastener on a piece of clothing. I also like ones that have chalkboard fabric so the reader can complete some pictures on some pages for extra creativity.

My little one is getting her first doll, and I'd love to have some sweet little doll blankets for her!

All of these were such great ideas! The two I like most tho are Jan's idea of a doll sling and Stuff Parents Need's doll blankets. So we have two winners! Ladies, I will work on these items and send them to you so you can "test" them out for me! Thanks to all who participated!
