Featured Item of the Day

Squirrel Earrings
Every fabric button is handmade, with love, by Rachel O. Earring measures approx .5 inch wide, and has a hypoallergenic, raw titanium post (not shiny). Posts are nickel-free and cadmium free. Fabric buttons are made of 100% cotton, hand stretched (by me) over an aluminum dome. Photos of solid white buttons are included for size reference ONLY. Ruler and ear are NOT included. You will receive one pair of earrings as seen in the first photo. Due to the handmade nature of your earrings, they will vary ever so slightly from the pair in the photo, but will be equally awesome. Earrings 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) earring designs.

Featured Item of the Day

Nerd Girl Jackalope
Rachel O's Jackalopes are each a unique work of art. I crochet each one without a pattern so every sweet bunny face is different and has their own personality.

This jackalope has been stuffed and mounted to a wood plaque measuring approx 5x7 inches. There is a hole drilled in the back, so you can hang it with a single nail (not included).

Antlers are hand sculpted from polymer clay.

Accessories and ear insides have been firmly attached with glue, but this is an art object, not a toy.

Like all nerds, this jackalope may need assistance in adjusting their glasses upon arrival. Glasses are attached with wire from the back and are free floating resting on the nose. It may shift during shipping. All it's going to need is a little wiggle. Don't worry about fingerprints on the lenses- the jackalope doesn't realize that their glasses don't have any lenses.

Ruler is in inches and is not included with purchase.

Colors can appear differently on different monitors. I have done my best to represent the piece accurately. If you have any questions, I encourage you to ask before purchase.

I'm Not a Good Baker

Behold my latest baking fail. My attempt at homemade funfetti didn't work out. Every single one of my sprinkles sunk to the bottom of the cake. Every. Single. One. 
I want to be a good baker, but I may have more heart than talent. Oh well. It may have been ugly, but it tasted fine.
