Here is one design, using Velcro to secure the belt. It also allows room for growth, since buying kid's clothing can be frustrating as they seem to outgrow everything within weeks of purchase.
Well as soon as I posted this sample, someone asked if I could do the same thing in a dog collar! I never want to refuse a request, so it looks like I'll be doing some research. I already ordered the hardware today but it may not be delivered for a week or two. That should give me a little time to check out collars and see what they entail. I am an indoor cat person, and frankly, they really aren't the collar types!

And have a wonderful St. Patrick's day this weekend. Even though it's too late to get this for the holiday, you can always show off your Irish pride with a shamrock headband!

Well, here I am. Probably the third blog I have tried, not counting the one I created on behalf of my then-newborn son (yeah, I'm one of THOSE people). My son is now three-and-a-half and I probably last posted in there when he got his first baby tooth. I guess I'm not so good at these things.
Anyway.....at this time I am trying to really pursue a side business with the things I make. I work full time at a job I enjoy, but when the clock hits 5 I really look forward to too going home to see my family, cook dinner (necessary evil), then get creative once my boys are asleep. One is a toddler, the other is my husband, and they both actually have the same bedtime.
Unfortunately for me I have a bit of ADD when it comes to crafting. I fall in love with one type of thing, buy an overload of supplies, then I discover something new. It also seems to happen around he time I try to sell some items but never really move them because I don't have the right forum.
At this time I am making key fobs. Really fun and easy to make. Prior to that it was headbands. Before that, notecards. Bags. Candles. Faberge style eggs. Shall I go on?
So, perhaps by some miracle if I use Blogger maybe I will pique someone's interest and they will search out Joatmon Creations on Facebook or Etsy. It's worth a shot. Afterall I need to make room for that next big medium that grabs my attention!
