I've been stalking <a href="http://www.stinkbugdesigns.com" target="_blank">http://www.stinkbugdesigns.com</a> off an on for a long time waiting for her to open because I have one of her diaper bags and love it. She's making wet bags now.. BEAUTIFUL zippered wet bags even in really big sizes! I love every single one she has instock right now and it's just killing me not to get one, but I want one just a tad more gender neutral since we are almost out of the diaperbag stage and I'll want to use it for the next baby some day.<br><br>
She has some very neat toys that I've never seen anywhere else too. One thing I am going to get is an eye spy bag for my dd when we go to church and for in the car. Those baby dolls are SO sweet too, but my dd is a little old for one now.. maybe I should get one to put up as a gift.<br><br><br>
Anyway, I need to post the disclaimer that the owner of the store is my cousin but I swear this isn't spam. I post ONLY as a customer. I haven't spoken with her in weeks and didn't even know her store was open unstil I decided to take a peek on whim this morning. I know many of you have been looking for great diaper bags and I've seen LOTS of posts about needed a wet bag. I'm so excited I could pee my pants!.. I'm off to add and remove things from my cart 50 times before I actually buy. Hmmm.. too bad she doesn't have a "cousin discount" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

Stockmars? I dunno really.. I think it must have somethng to do with the natural bees wax?? Since it's mostly natrual toys that would be my guess. I'm pretty happy with 88 cent per box crayons since they just get eaten, put up noses, broken, and generally not colored with at this point.. but maybe for older kids they are better for arts and crafts? I'll email her and ask her if she could make the description better.I showed my husband the flip flops.. he thought they were silly.. I think they are cute as can be. I REALLY REALLY want that lemon chenille wipes bag. You would think I could just make my own *L*.. I prefer a drawstring for a diaper wet bag, but would love to have a wipes bag so I can stop using these silly zip lock bags.. but I hate to sew zippers. Oh me oh my!! Maybe I can sell some blood to make money.. yeah.. that's what I'll do!'<br>

Thanx for the link - cool stuff!! I couldn't resist getting a pair of those funky pink chenille sandals and also a blue chenille wet bag (I have a chenille diaper bag so this will go perfectly with it). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I've dwindled down my newly stocked PayPal account though... bummer.<br><br>

The site is SO cute -- I love the logo and the color! What are the play clips for? Making forts and stuff? They are cute! You should tell her maybe to add some description to that product explaining what they can be used for etc.

I'll forward her this thread. I'm not sure why the link didn't work for you. Strange. Maybe try this one <a href="http://www.stinkbugdesigns.com/store/Default.asp" target="_blank">http://www.stinkbugdesigns.com/store/Default.asp</a><br><br>
I broke down and got the lemon chenille wipes bag, the ice cream chenille dress and floppy hat, and an eye spy bag. I was bad bad bad!!! But I don't care <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> the prices were just too good for chenille goodies.<br><br>
Play clips are to clip up playsilks without damaging them. They are good if you have a playstand , but can also be used to clip the silks onto chairs and such. Oh! I forgot.. we have some of the playsilks too.. my mother bought some from her for my dd for Christmas. They are great. I don't have a little drawstring bag with mine though.. those are cute.<br><br>

Stockmar crayons are beeswax...here is what someone wrote up on them...<br><br>
The block crayons are great for little hands. They’re easy to grip, and they don’t roll off the table. The more narrow selection of colors encourages the child to be more creative. The big box of 64 (or isn’t it 128 now?) of crayons doesn’t encourage a child to be creative with his colors, and can be overwhelming. Both the stick and block crayons can last for years. The stick crayons don’t break easily, and they are quite substantial. Both varieties of crayons are made with beeswax, instead of petrochemicals.<br><br>
edited to add: and the beeswax crayons give a crisper/brighter color.

They're German beeswax crayons. I think the blocks are supposed to be easier for kids to hold on to, and the colors are really pretty. Oh, and they don't break like regular crayons. They're supposed to last forever too. I bought a box for Niels, but he mostly chewed on them so I set them aside until he's a little less chewy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Oh that's really cool about the stockmars.. good info! I actually do love the idea of non-rolly crayons *L*.. not to mention...if my toddler is going to eat them, what would I rather she eat? I think the beeswax would be .. err.. healtier if you can call a caryon healthy. See.. now I must have some! Why did you DO that? Couldn't you just let me live in my world of 88 cent crayons and be happy? Noooooo.. you had to go telling me how wonderful the $10 crayons are. Pretty neat though.<br><br><br>
Anyone else really in love with the red rose and chenille diaper bag? I've got to stop looking!<br><br>

I tried to buy one of those eye spy bags, but my check out window got all hung up and I don't think it went through! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

Sorry! I did mention that we aren't actually using ours right now, didn't I? It is too easy for Niels to hold them in his fists and walk all over the house drawing on everything. Ugh.

Drop her an email.. she responded VERY quickly to my email earlier today. I'm kind of excited about the spy bag, but I"m afraid my dd will be upset that she can't actually open it to get the goodies out of the bag *LOL*. But hopefully once we sit down and talk about all the things in there, she'll get the idea that you are just suppose to search. It's such a neat idea.. I keep thinking "now why didn't I think of that?"<br><br>
Drawing on everything.. you have no idea! My dd seems to have a facination with permanent markers. I have a lot because of the business, and she seems to find every single one that could possibly be reached by a three foot tall person. So far, she's drawn on our brand new basement walls, doors, and a quilt we throw over the ugly orange sofa in the basement.. our new carpet, herself (I just KNOW she's going to grow up to be a tatoo artist), and the cats. It's been months and I still haven't gotten around to painting over her artwork. Ever get that email that goes around every so often with a toddler and a little baby in a bouncy seat beside her.. and the baby's entire face is BLACK from a marker the toddler used on her? If we had another baby around here.. that's what my dd would do I'm sure <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I only wish she loved crayons as much.. at least those can be removed to some degree and dont' ruin quilts. Ahh.. my little artist <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
