I'm very pleased with the views I have gotten so far. It has far exceeded my expectations and forced me to the conclusion that my attempt to open up shop on Artfire was a complete and utter waste of time and money. 1000 Markets is extremely user friendly, with bulk upload of photos, which allows for listing in mere minutes. Despite a few bugs that I think will eventually work itself out, I'm hopeful about my outlook here.
So check out Two Seaside Babes on 1000 Markets if you'd like. You'd know I'd love to see you!

Thank you to all my past customers! Your sales have allowed me to purchase yarn to create these hats and to mail them off.

I typically crochet my buckle beanies in a wool/acrylic blend yarn. What does this mean for you? No scratchies! This yarn is super thick and soft, so it not only holds it shape very well, but keeps your noggin toasty warm in the cold weather. My buckle beanies can be made in one single color or they can be made in two separate colors. Click on any picture to find out more including descriptions and prices:

And, it is worth a definite mention the mini spy bag she threw in for absolutely free (it's on my to-do list to get another from her). She has dozens in mini and regular sizes and they are definitely a life-saver when you have an antsy toddler (or two) in the checkout line:
As a skipper's wife, and a skipper's mother, she crafts luxurious soaps and beautiful jewelry, all with a natural and nautical theme. I purchased two soaps from her, Creamy Cucumber and Summer Fling. I was pleasantly surprised when my package arrived and she had even thrown in an extra bar of soap! I was even more surprised at the wonderful scent that filled my bathroom when I unwrapped the bars of soap. Click on any picture to find out more including descriptions and prices.
I asked The Skipper's Wife to make me a personal soap made of lavender and chamomile. When I received it (absolutely free), she had made it exactly to my specifications. There is nothing quite as relaxing as the scent of lavender and chamomile at the end of a long, hard day. I was tickled pink that she even choose to name it after me!
Here are some more wonderful soaps and beautiful jewelry that can be found at The Skipper's Wife. While I've never purchased any jewelry, it remains in my favorites as ideas for future gifts for others (or myself):
So, with the holidays approaching quickly, it's best to check out The Skipper's Wife for some great soaps and jewelry. With wonderful communication, fast shipping, and superb customer service, you'll definitely want to come back again!
