Issue: #30April 2013

  April is the month for Showers - both baby and bridal. Give the gift of hand made.  Always special, always appreciated!

Pop-Up Puppets
     Adorable Pop-Up Puppets by Margaret Swanson-Vance are sure to keep a baby laughing!

Heart S&P Shakers

Can you imagine these on the breakfast table? How romantic!


And elegant pottery to show your own uniqueness.

Sock Monkey

A new take on the ever-popular sock monkey, many of these have felt eyes to be safe for baby. And why not get coordinating socks, too? Baby socks are sold in a "Two Pair and a Spare"set of five color coordinated socks - no need to search for the mate!

Fish Measuring Spoons
Food-safe pewter measuring spoons from Eugene, OR have been a perennial favorite bridal shower gift from Crackerjack!
  Crocheted Blankets
Each of these hand-crocheted baby blankets is unique, made by Nicole Hughes of Seattle. They are a great size for baby, and are machine washable for practicality.

And last, but not least, for the bride or the baby, a Harmony Lantern, made right here in Seattle, is a wonderful gift! There are nearly a hundred patterns to choose from, so you can change them out with the seasons or your mood!

Harmony Lantern
