Happy Halloween!

Our usual family routine at Halloween involves my nephew picking a theme and then we all dress up together and go out trick or treating as his accessories!

Since I am on vacation it isn't happening this year... And maybe also because my niece is getting old enough to decide she wants to be Strawberry Shortcake instead of someone from Harry Potter. I was really looking forward to my Professor Trelawney costume until I realized it conflicted with this trip.

Here are some photos from years gone by... We take things just a little bit seriously!

Hope you are all having fun and staying safe!


I haven't touched yarn in three days! What? I did bring some... thinking I could get some work done on the plane... But I just happened to sit next to cute boys on both of my flights... So I decided to keep the grandma routine to a minimum.

I am taking a little trip to the other side of the country... It's lovely here. I love New York! We got in on Saturday and landed in the middle of the snowstorm. It was cold, but oh so pretty.

Here are some photos of my wanderings! Hope you are having a lovely Halloween ... Stay warm!

I am still here.

So October has proven to be quite a busy month.

It was my birthday... so I was required to spend a lot of time running around in this:

My friends are super and I am grateful to have had lots of love and attention this month in honor of my birth!

There have also been significant changes rolling out at my day job that have required lots of time and attention from my brain.

And... one of the coolest things this month: Etsy posted a link to one of my cozies on their Facebook page.

It brought quite a bit of traffic to my shop. I am so grateful and the influx of orders has kept me quite busy! I am currently on vacation from the day job.... I wasn't sure about taking the extra week before my trip to NYC but it was completely meant to be. I am so glad that I have had the time to fill all the orders and not get behind. It's been a lot of fun. So if you are wondering where I have been.. I have been on my couch with yarn streaming Netflix!

Hope you all are enjoying fall!

Mama Marchand.

I love making custom items. Recently my twitter pal Tricia, aka Mamamarchand requested a custom bird cozy in my favorite color combo. I rushed out the door to get it to the PO so fast that I didn't get a chance to take a picture. She was nice enough to send me one...

I couldn't help but notice it matches the colors of her blog design. And also her Mama's Nest Designs Etsy shop header.  Run along and check out her shop featuring new and upcycled jewelry. She has been open just over a week and has lots of super great items.

These might be my fav:

Cozy love...

Check out some of these super cool blogs that have shared the cozy love!!  I am so very appreciative when people feature my cozies.

Jen over at Harper Street wrote a lovely post about some of the cozies here.

Sarah of Cerlandia talked about the Fall Swap package I sent her (including a cozy, and some of my favorite items that are also made in the Pacific Northwest.) Thanks to Carissa at Kissed a Frog for organizing! It was super fun and I have a post coming on my super package too! Sarah's post about her package is here.

Mayra of In Flight Ideas wrote a lovely post about candy corn. YUM. She included my candy corn cozy. Check out her post here.

Candy corn are so popular right now... Another post following that theme here thanks to Brideblu.

Liz over at  Blue Eyed Owl Boutique wrote a lovely Halloween themed post right here  featuring my vampire cozy.

Thanks everyone. I really appreciated being appreciated!!

Crazy 8's!

This summer I was asked to complete a custom bulk order. Heather asked for 8 cozies with 8's on them. I was totally curious but went about creating some cute cozies for her. I finally asked and she told me that she had a group of 8 friends that she has known for almost 40 years. They get together periodically and she wanted to bring something that would be used and remind them of each other and their friendship.

She just sent me a pic of their table setting. Judging by that, it looks like they had a great time. I am glad they enjoyed their custom cozies and some super great quality time with friends!

Thanks Heather for sharing your picture!

I want to have a tea party.

This dreary weather makes me want to drink tea (or something warm and cozy) from noon to night! My adorable red Kitchenaid tea pot has never felt so much love!!! One of my favorite times of day is after dinner, right before bed, we put water in the pot, and wait for that whistle.

Here is a lovely little tea party treasury I created with some of the most adorable things!!

It is really pumpkin time...

Pumpkin coffee cozy by The Cozy Project

This coffee cozy is a perfect fit for the average disposable paper coffee cup. Wouldn't a pumpking spice latte taste even better if you were looking at this while you drank it?

It will keep your hot drink hot and prevent fingers from getting too toasty! Pictured here on a 16oz cup, but it will also fit a can, or pint glass.

I am excited about Halloween!!
