It’s these “smaller” ideas that lead Carrie to create her favorite creation so far, “Crayon Roll Ups”. “Crayons are associated with childhood. New crayons in an adorable crayon roll up just bring smiles to faces of all ages! Not to mention their practicality. Throw them in a purse or diaper bag and you have something to occupy your child in any emergency situation!”
Now, through the end of February, Freckles Galore! is offering the clever “Crayon Roll Ups” for JUST $5.00–a savings of $2.00!! Consider one for Valentine’s Day or Easter Baskets…even just bring a smile to your favorite kiddo’s face!
She’s devised a system that works for her and helps her stay on task. ” I work in the “assembly line” style. I usually will do all of my cutting out at one time, then putting together, sewing, finishing, labeling, etc…. This tends to be faster for me and I can manage my time better. I can set a goal of just getting things cut out if I have to–instead of getting interupted in the middle of a project–which can still happen..a lot.! Once nap time is over, everything is put away so that I can concentrate on my family.”
When the sewing is put away, Carrie is “a stay at home mom of three wonderful school-aged children. I have a great husband of almost 12 years! Besides loving to sew, my first love was teaching. I taught elementary school for 4 years before becoming a stay at home mom. Now that all of my kids are school-aged, I may be heading back into the classroom in the next year or so. I love to teach the children in our church. I also love to read and quilt. But most of all, I love being a wife and mother to my family!”
Carrie has taken her love for her family and enhanced it with two other “Freckles Galore!” products, Doll Diapers and Ouchie Bags!”
The “Ouchie Bags” can be used to “soothe your child’s aches and pains.” It’s child-sized at 4″x5″ and made of soft flannel. Your child can hold it securely in place with the 7/8″ grosgrain ribbon handle. Another great benefit of this bag is that it’s eco-friendly. You can use it over and over for bumps, bruises, scrapes, earaches, and growing pains!
As the mom to two young girls, I love the idea of Baby Doll Diapers. There was the Christmas of Baby Alive, who broke the bank with the need for “diapers”! It was this same Christmas that inspired Freckles Galore! to save the budget, “I was inspired to make these when my daughter got a wetting baby doll for Christmas one year. It is so much cheaper and environmentally friendly to use these flannel cloth diapers than buying those disposable ones.” Each set includes two diapers and a changing pad.
Freckles Galore! is a fun place to just browse. One of my favorite items is the “pee pee domes”. What a great idea! Like Carrie, I sure could have used these when my boys were little!
The quality of her work is spoken by her customers:
“Excellent product and wonderful customer service!!! The doll diaper set is so cute and much more economical (and environmentally friendly!) than buying those plastic diapers they sell for the Baby Alive doll! Love your shop!!! :-)”
I got these crayon rolls to use as favors for my son’s birthday. She did a great job. They look beautiful . Very well finished and she was extremely accomodating in customizing these by finding the material/patterns that I wanted. Had them done and shipped in just a few days. Overall, a great shopping experience with this vendor.”
“Great product! Fast shipping! A pleasure to buy from!”
