Took the kiddos to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk last Saturday! Rode some rides, ate corn dogs gazed at the beach and back home we went! It was a quick trip but they had fun all the same!

Some of you may know that Whiffy Bean Bags has a product called the Whiffy Poo. Details may be viewed on our website.

So this is where I need help? what should the Poo smell like other than roses????

Please post a comment to this post with your suggestion and if we go with your scent suggestion, we will send you a Whiffy Poo in that scent!

Thanks in advance for the help!

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.

I know it has been forever...

but I wanted to let you all know that Whiffy Bean Bags will be doing its first craft faire! We are going to Petlaluma on June 29 12-5 for the Craftaluma! Not positive of the exact location but details to come....this is our first one and we are really excited. I have been busy sewing lots of Whiffy products, crating our first real "instock inventory" as most of our products are all custome made once ordered!

Wow, time just flew!

Well by golly, I have not posted in quite some time. I have no real excuse for it either. We are sill working on some fabric combos for the larger Smoos...nothing really set in stone at the moment other than wanting ones side to be minkee swirl! That stuff is heavenly....

Tried out some Whiffy magnets but I was not happy with the strength of the magnets so I am on a hunt for some ultra strong magnets.

Other than the usual orders etc, nothing else new happening here!

Thinking up a new spin on the Whiffy Smoo!

If you have not been to our website, you should go check it out! Whiffy Bean Bags

We currently make our Smoos as a "lovey" sized blanket, so 14"x14".....but we are branching out and headed toward making a larger version! maybe closer to 34"x54"! I am really excited about this!

If you are reading this and have an idea on what colors or minkee patterns would make for great Smoos, please leave me a comment. I am trying to come up with some new color combos and I am a little stumped! Thanks!

How about that Super Bowl?

So we had some friends over for a chili cook-off and thought we would catch the commercials in between the mingling! well by golly..I am glad I caught the last 4 minutes of that game---what an ending! It was great!

oh and all of the chili was delicious.

Got another WAHM Friend to mention...

Jessica of a Ray of Stitches is another WAHM over on Hyena Cart and also happens to be part of the cooperative, Something on Hyena Cart of which I also am a member! Jessica makes some wonderful toys and in fact I have some of her cool wooden money. She also makes doll diapers, tic tac toe sets, bean bags in her toy repertoire. But that is not it, I also know that Jessica knits....She is sort of the "you name it, she can make it kinda gal"!

Time just flew by!

So I am all gung ho on the Blog thing and then I let 11 days go by without a post. Sorry, in case any one was reading daily hoping for a new post! Well here it is!

We sent out our first Whiffy Bean Bags newsletter last week and launched our new Monthly Whiffy Welcome. We've received positive feedback on this Welcome so I am really excited about it!

OH and I got a new sewing machine last week! I bought a Janome 2040 not too fancy but considering all I do is straight stitch, how fancy do I need to get! It is smooth and quiet compared to my Singer and much heavier! now Paul can take over my Singer and we can sew at the same time! I would love an embroidery machine but really do I need one? probably not! Just love the thought.

I am planning to make some new Smoos this week to list on our website. Stay tuned for those.....
