Sleeping with your corn bag....beware!

My kids have always went to bed with their corn bags, especially in the winter months when it is downright chilly. However, lately my son has been waking up in the wee hours of the night asking for his corn bag to be warmed. Now, I love my children, however getting up at 2:00 am to warm a corn bag is something else. Try to reason with a 4 year old in the middle of the night, it does not work. I held my own though, and did not warm it. Once you start something it will become a nightly ritual. I told him that the only way to get his corn bag warmed at 2:00am is 1) to be spitting up 2) to have the swine flu 3) to have a major injury. So now when he gets up we go over the list and of course the answer to all the above is NO..he goes back to bed. Hopefully, he will get over this and sleep through the night...I am getting weary!

Cannot sleep so I thought I would write a quick post

I just got finished watching Curb Your Enthusiasm, Larry David really makes me laugh! Probably should have done something peaceful like reading or listening to music as I cannot sleep now and it is getting late.
Well enough about that, I just wanted to post quickly about the neck/shoulder buddy that I just designed. I really do not like the heat therapy bags that go from side to side hanging off the shoulders and pressed up against the back of the neck. I think it puts a lot of pressure on the back of your neck and spine and can do more damage than good. I designed this to fit in the curve of your neck reaching down to your shoulder. I have been told by many customers that this has really helped their rotater cuff injuries. The shoulder/neck buddy comes in select designer fabrics for men and women and also in the super soft chenille fabrics that I love so much. Happy Shopping!

Gearing up for the Holidays!

Well before we know it, Christmas will be here. I envy the people that start Jan. 1st and have presents bought and wrapped, cookies baked, decorations put out...all by November! I, of course, am a last minute person. I do start out good, buying one or two things early on, but somehow become wrapped up in life and gift shopping gets put on hold. I do love the holidays with the decorations and cookies, but can do without the weather. You can give me 90 degree weather and a beach any day!

We are starting to get in gear for the holiday season. We have many new designer patterns that are here or are coming in. I know last year we ran out of men's patterns early, so I have decided to expand that area a bit.

I know Ella and Elton the elephants were coming quite some time ago, but am having a designer moment and cannot decide on fabrics. Hopefully, they will get here before Xmas.

So when you are starting your holiday shopping, think of a corn bag critter. They are Eco-friendly, multi-functional and most important (especially in this economy) affordable!

Happy Shopping!
