Weekend Update

Whew! Busy weekend over here. It was filled with hard work and fun activities. 
I'm working on a big batch of all new Christmas Ornaments. They aren't quite ready to show off yet, but I'm already in love. 

Featured Item of the Day

Sugar Skull Pendant
Every fabric button is handmade, with love, by Rachel O. Pendant measures just under 1 inch wide. Fabric buttons are made of 100% cotton, hand stretched (by me) over an aluminum dome. Pendant hangs from an 18 inch bronze tone chain with lobster clasp. Photos of solid white button pendants are included for size reference ONLY. Ruler and model are NOT included. You will receive one pendant as seen in the first photo. Due to the handmade nature of your necklace, it will vary ever so slightly from the one seen in the photo, but will be equally awesome. Pendants look their best when cared for properly. Please avoid getting them wet (remove before shower/swim), put on after applying makeup, and you will be able to enjoy them for a long time. Check out my listings for other super(duper) designs and matching earrings.

Best Buddies

I can't explain it, the creepier my jackalopes get, they get even cuter. I put together this horror couple in preparation for Halloween. I've made zombies in the past, but this is my first werewolf. The werewolf was the final push I needed to add teeth. What is a werewolf without fangs?

Featured Item of the Day

Crow Hairpins
Did you know that crows are especially smart birds? They're stylish too on this cute bobby pin pair.

Rachel O's is proud to offer the ultimate in couture fabric covered button jewelry.

Every fabric button is handmade, with love, by Rachel O herself. The sweet softness of fabric buttons accents any hairstyle. I like to think of my jewelry as being tiny canvases, wear my art with pride!

Each button measures approx .5 inch wide, and is firmly attached to a quality hair pin. You will receive one pair of hairpins as seen in the first photo. The other photos are for hair and style reference as well as to show what the back of the hairpin looks like.

Due to the handmade nature of your hairpins, they will vary ever so slightly from the pair in the photo, but will be equally awesome.

Cletus

I've added a new jackalope variation- Teeth! I've been pondering this for quite a while. Jackalope construction is a little more complicated than just gluing things to yarn. Every exterior piece has an apparatus on the inside to make the whole piece sturdier.
I finally cracked the teeth code and have been adding chompers to my next herd. Not all new jackalope will have teeth, just the doofus-y ones.  
Husband named this little guy Cletus, so I guess he's going to have to live with us forever. I have a strict no-name policy. When you have tons of bunnies, you can't get attached. 

Featured Item of the Day

Pretzel Cufflinks
Cufflink button measures approx .5 inch wide and is firmly attached to a standard metal cufflink. Fabric buttons are made of 100% cotton, hand stretched (by me, Rachel O) over an aluminum dome. Photos of solid white buttons are included for size reference ONLY. Ruler, model and his clothing/accessories are NOT included. You will receive one pair of cufflinks as seen in the first photo. Due to the handmade nature of your cufflinks, they will vary ever so slightly from the pair in the photo, but will be equally awesome. Check out my listings for other super(duper) cufflink designs.

Happy Carrot

My backyard garden can be hit or miss. This year's hit is definitely the crop of carrots. We planted a variety that grows in every color from white to purple. They were a little slower than advertised, but were worth the wait.
This little guy put up quite a fight, but was ultimately delicious. Doesn't it look like a person with both legs and arms in the air? It's a happy looking carrot.
