Nate is called caring!

Whiffy Bean Bags did not make any Whiffys this weekend! boo hoo..... and to make matters worse, we spent all today mopping the house!  Should be back at it tomorrow.  But the best part of the day was Nate receiving an award for caring at his school and Alexa was able to present to him!  He was proud, she was proud and I was proud!  What a moment...

Who is going to be Pebbles Flintstone for Halloween? Yous guessed it, Aly Bobaly! She will be joining a Police Man and Hannah Montana on her first real trick or treat adventure this year. The girl loves candy and being as cute as she is, I am sure she will score big on Sunday night.

It's a rainbow of Whiffys...

Just listed these wonderful rainbow Whiffys over at our Etsy shop.  I can see these being a fun hit for the kids this holiday season!   Look cute, smell great!

Wish you could do this too?

This is Alyson showing off one for her famous moves!  She has been doing this for months and just finds it hysterical.  I couldn't  perform this stunt if I tried or was forced into it.  I love watching all the goofy things these kids do...and not take a look at Nate's outfit...luckily those are his pajamas but what a combo!  It is a lazy Sunday morning around here on this dreary Harvest day...I am loving it!

Lesson Learned and Duly Noted!uy

Buy fabric from your trusted sources.  No need to wallow in my misery but just noting a lesson learned!  Thanks everyone for understanding if you found yourselves affected!

Oh Sunday what will you bring?

Harvest is happening around here and that means our Whiffy Daddy, Paul works pretty much 7 days a week, although Sundays he tries to keep it to half day.  No current plans for this afternoon, could be the pool, could be hanging at home sewing halloween costumes, could be decorating the house of halloween, could be making soap?  the possibilities are endless..what do you like to do on a Sunday afternoon?

Facebook anyone?

In the past 2 years, I have become an avid FB'er!  It has been an invaluable "homey" spot for me especially since moving away from all my friends in March 2009.  I have been able to stay in touch with those people as well as having reacquainted myself with dozens of friends from college, high school and even elementary school!  I truly enjoy reading the goings on with my all my friends, I some times snicker, I some times have memories flash back and some times I am disgusted by what I read!  To bring this post back around to Whiffy Bean Bags, did you all know that Whiffy Bean Bags has its own fan page on Facebook?  If you are not already a fan, come check out our page!

My kids and their Whiffy Ices

Over the years my own kids have collected their fair share of Whiffy Ices. They get the ones I commonly refer to as seconds...might be a bit wonky in the sewing, maybe a random stain, just something that I do not feel should go out to the rest of the world. Right now in our freezer, we have about 6 Ices. For some reason they all came out tonight and became the toy of the evening...as you can see they have many uses. Not pictured is our little Aly...after playing monkey in the middle for about 10 minutes with the big kids and then pummeling them with Ices, she decided to sit this picture out...

Holiday shopping is upon us now....

The Holidays are quickly approaching and in fact I have already started my shopping.  I have crocheted food, sweet bracelets, hair bows, earrings and other assorted stocking stuffers already put away for the big Christmas day.  Anyone else shopping already?  If you are in need of any stocking stuffers, I hear our Whiffy Ices make a  great addition....just saying!

and we're back on the blog scene!

Looks like it has been just shy of 2 years since our last blog post! and have things changed around the Whiffy Bean Bags home front, including the home! In March of 2009 we moved to the central coast of California, Los Olivos to be exact. My husband is now the winemaker at a fairly well known winery down here.

In May of 2009, we welcomed our last little Whiffy, Alyson Mackenzie to the world! She joined Alexa, then 6 and Nate, then 4.

Whiffy Bean Bags went on hiatus for many, many months but got back up and running in the Summer of 2010. We made some changes to our business plan and have now decided to offer our Whiffys thru Etsy in addition to Universal Mama every other Monday night on Hyena Cart. Our regular website as you have known it for the past 3 years will no longer be running.

We also have simplified our product line. We currently offer the regular Whiffy Bean Bags, the Whiffy Ices, the Whiffys Ice Eye Pillow and will be offering on a limited basis the Whiffy magnet. These changes were a result of the latest laws under the CPSIA.

Looking forward to blogging more and offering our Whiffys to all our friends! If you have not done so, please come check us out on Facebook!

Fun day with the kids!

If anyone else out there has a Husband who is a Winemaker, you will know what it means to be a "harvest widow". My husband is in full swing at his job bringing in grapes, crushing them and doing whatever else you do when are in the middle of "harvest".

So yesterday found me with the entire day alone with my kiddos...not a common occurrence on the weekends here. I took them out to Earth Child in Sebastopol. A great waldorf toy store...they had a wonderful time and I was able to look at in person waldorf doll kits. I might just get one before Christmas to try my hand at it!

From Earth Child we headed over to Howarth Park in Santa Rosa. Rode the train and the carousel, played on the spide web and the structure, had a popsicle and then headed home. 2 hours total driving, 3 hours of fun! a good day!

From the Whiffy Bean Bags R&D department

There has been a lot of activity in Research and Development this summer at Whiffy Bean Bags. I, the Whiffy Husband, have been toiling away in the kitchen discovering the incredible craft of soap making. Over the last year, we've been enjoying so many wonderful and creative soaps from a great number of WAHMs, and I thought, "What a fantastic challenge. I'm going to learn to make soap."
So far in the last three weeks I've made 3 batches of soaps, and I've been learning an incredible amount about timing, "trace", and how oils behave a much higher pH's. At worst we're going to have some handmade soap to use up in our home, but at best we're going to have some great smelling Christmas gifts for families and friends, or even another product line for Whiffy Bean Bags!
I should add that we will continue to buy from our favorite soap producers, It's going to be a long time before I can produce our favorite soaps!

Need your help?

I need to start making some more Whiffy Smoos in some new cool colors and patterns. If you are not familiar with our Smoo, you can get more details at Whiffy Bean Bags.

I need some help in determining what people want a blanket to look like? Brown and pink? red? purple? all minkee? some flannel? cotton woven on one side? or?????????????

Please leave me a comment with some suggestions. If I decide to go with your suggestion, I will send you out a custom regular Whiffy Bean Bag.
