Trolls – DJ Suki

September 18, 2017

This adorable DJ Suki hat is one of my favorites.  Headphones are completely a stand-alone feature.  Wear as earmuff, headphones, or as part of the hat!  $30


Trolls – Poppy

Next up…Poppy!  I love this hat.  These hats turned out so adorable.  This hat has an adjustable and removable flower headband for wearing with or without the hat!  $30.

Trolls – Branch

August 30, 2017

First of all, I’m sorry once again for the lapse of posting.  I’m coming to grips with the fact that I’m just not a blogger.  I do enjoy it, to some extent, but as it’s not a priority, nothing ever gets posted.  I’d like to say that I’ll try to do better, but I feel as that might be an empty promise.  🙂

Recently inspired by the Trolls movie, my business partner and I teamed together to make troll hats.  They turned out awesome!  We are in the process of making several of the main/fun characters.  They are adorable and funny when worn!  This post will feature Branch.

Branch hats are selling for $25.  Also, if you want a custom troll design, let us know!  Prices for all trolls are between $25 and $30.

Apple Scrapple Success!

October 27, 2016

Our Apple Scrapple craft show did well.  We had hoped for a better response on a few of our items, but overall, we did well and had interest in our booth.  We heard many reports of there being thousands of people in attendance to the festival as a whole, but most likely due to the beautiful weather, we didn’t see as many of those thousands as I had hoped.  🙂  We still had a lot of fun.


We also took an order, which Rachel (of Smacked with a Sparkle) fulfilled.  Isn’t this just the cutest hat?  (Only $20 if you want one for yourself or your little one!)

Apple Scrapple is Upon Us!

October 13, 2016

Funny story.  I don’t know who is in charge of the Apple Scrapple Festival, but my personal opinion is that whoever it is made things way too confusing.  I planned to go for the craft show on the wrong date!  Thankfully, a friend pointed out my error.  I assumed I knew when the craft show was, so I didn’t carefully read my paperwork.  Now, here’s the thing.  Every year that I’ve done it (this will be the 5th), it has been on the second Saturday of October.  Every. Single. One.  So, naturally, I assumed this would be the same.  Apparently, it is supposed to be the “second FULL weekend in October.”  Okay, great.  Only, October 1st was a SATURDAY.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t consider Friday a weekend day, even though I’d like to.  And most people I know have to work, because Friday is a WEEKDAY.  Well, whoever is in charge of dates, apparently considers Friday a weekend day because the festival is on October 14th and 15th this year.  Which, of course, is only the 2nd FRIDAY of the month, but the third Saturday.  No wonder I was confused.  All that is really neither here no there as I got everything all straightened out in plenty of time.  That being said, I’ll move on.  🙂

I am so ready for this show and so excited.  We will be located in the Gymnasium of the Middle School in downtown Bridgeville (formerly Woodbridge High School).  We will be there from 9am to 4pm on Saturday, October 15, 2016.  We hope you stop by and see us!  We have added numerous new things to our inventory.  Smacked with a Sparkle has some home decor items for sale in addition to all the beautiful and wonderful crochet things.  Also, since the past 2 weekends have been gloomy and rainy, this is a perfect opportunity to get out and about.  The weather is supposed to be absolutely perfect, and hopefully the day will turn out to be marvelous.

Come out and enjoy Apple Scrapple and all it has to offer (yum..Apple Dumplings).  It wouldn’t hurt if you stopped by our booth and said hello either.  😉

Making Progress!

September 21, 2016

I’ve been really busy preparing for my upcoming craft show attendance at the Trinity Craft Show at Apple Scrapple in Bridgeville, DE on October 15, 2016.  I was so busy working, that I didn’t realize exactly how much progress I had made!  When I took a step back and looked at what I had accomplished in a 2.5 week period, I was floored…and pleased.  I already have a really good inventory built up, so adding these things to that is wonderful!

When I counted the items, it’s something like 16 hats, 17 flowers, 5 small cowls, 1 wrap around scarf, and 3 beards.  I still can’t believe it.

I’m getting very excited about the upcoming show.  Just a few more things on my “to do” list.  I also ordered business cards that should arrive any day now!  Hooray!

If You Give a Girl a Crochet Hook

September 15, 2016

My daughter has been on a “Give a Mouse” book kick.  We’ve read almost all of the different books that Laura Numeroff has written.  I got “inspired,” so to speak, and decided to write a crocheter’s version.  It isn’t very good, but thought I’d share anyway.  🙂

If You Give a Girl a Crochet Hook
(idea from Laura Numeroff, poem by Rebekah Bowers)

If you give a girl a crochet hook, she’s going to want some yarn to go with it.
When you bring her the yarn, she’ll probably ask what other colors you have.
When you show her the other colors, she’ll remember a pattern she’s been wanting to try.
She’ll ask to borrow your computer.

When she’s online, she finds 3 other patterns she likes.
You won’t have the yarn color(s) she wants, so you’ll have to take her to the craft store.
While at the craft store, she’ll go a little crazy and buy tons of yarn.
When you finally get her home, she’ll have to find new places for all her yarn.
When finding places for her yarn, she’ll find of stack of old patterns she had printed.
Seeing the patterns will remind her of the yarn you gave her earlier.
So, she’ll probably ask for it.

And chances are, if you give her the yarn, she’s going to want a crochet hook to go with it.
