Extensive Extendings and My Mom makes her Blog Debut

I'm extending ordering for custom orders until Dec. 11th! I finished up everything I was working up much faster than I had anticipated soooo.....

My biggest order yet was made last month by Susan, who happens to be the best employer ever (which might be a total stretch of the imagination, considering she's not actually my boss so I have no idea if she's nice to work for or not). She wanted 20 scarfs for her employees and handmade gifts are so kick ass (in my humble opinion). Here are some photos of her finished order. There are 17 smaller 'short' scarfs, which I consider 'one tie' scarfs and three much larger and wider 'two tie' scarfs.

Here are all the different colors:

Here are some close ups:





If you are unfamiliar with what is available for custom orders, here are some links to previous blog posts with orders and examples:

Baby hats, city caps, headbands

Bear hats and mittens, cotton headband

More scarfs, hypoallergenic sets

Hats and fingerless gloves

Peter Pan hat, scarfs and generally awesome stuff

Past custom orders and more examples



You can also visit my store or contact me at my email address oliverosetree@yahoo.com. You can make orders through email or ask as many questions as you want and I will promptly get back to you with pricing and an easy to pay invoice.

I am also offering carriage/crib size baby blankets for $50, in pretty much whatever color you want. These would be great shower/new baby gifts!

Also I'm currently including adorable ultra-cute crochet gift cards to attach to your purchases.


I have some Thanksgiving photos to share...
I am always tempted to post embarrassing photos of my loved ones online. I have no idea why this is and it's been Jeremiah who's usually taken the brunt of this odd impulse. But today I will regale you with a lovely photo of me and my momma...and she has her eyes closed. Which, for some strange reason, is embarrassing.



Here are more, with ours eyes open. I've noticed that most of the photos taken on Thanksgiving (and at all other times) are of Maxine Jane. Soon everyone that reads this blog is going to naturally assume I made up the other three children and that Max is actually my only child. And then many of you will call the authorities because I'm obviously delusional.

Gosh those orders are keeping you busy. You need to employ a team of elves.

I really AM the best boss ever. What other employer would give all of their employees gorgeous handmade scarves for Christmas? It's not just because I keep the heat at 65 all winter to save money, either. But now that I think about it, maybe I should have also gotten some fingerless gloves for them...as long as they can still type while they wear them...

I love those!

And Max is my favorite. It's ok for me to have a favorite...since they aren't mine.

Amazing scarfs. You must have your children working at those all night. Do you ever let them out to go to school? ;-)

Max has kind of a pimpy smile in that second one. She's like, Awwww yeah, that's right. Word.

Sam said...

Aw, your mom is as cute as you! And I love those flower scarves. Adorable.

And how did you know I was starting to wonder if your "other three children" were other in the same way that Jarrah has Maine, Crick, StarWarsandAway and Braden for siblings? :)
