About Me

My photo
I've been crocheting for over 30 years, and come from a family of yarn and fabric artisans. I learned to sew from my Grandmother who made several quilts a year entirely by hand...one for each child, grandchild, and great-grandchild. Life situations and changes caused me to take a chance and open my first Etsy shop in Feb. 2011. A few successful months later, I opened my second Etsy shop as BeccaTheBaker...and later in 2011 opened my third Etsy shop as BeyondCrochetToo. I'm a single mother of 2 teenagers (a girl and a boy), plus 2 cats. I'm a 5th generation Native Californian (Northern California. And am happy to be back on the West Coast in the Pacific Northwest where I belong.

Mommy Must Have - Repost from Oh My! Handmade Goodness

If you can't tell, I've been catching up on my blog reading this morning. Here's another repost I think you might like.  :)



What is Your Mommy Must Have?

Monday, May 30, 2011
by Cassandra Rippberger of Pixie Chicago
Since we are focusing on the powerful mothers of the world this month, Pixie Chicago wanted to create something to make mother’s lives easier. After some intense conversations with mothers we came up with the must have item for mothers and all parents.
Mother’s are always writing notes and sending money to their child’s school/daycare and it seemed to be an issue when trying to get their kids out the door in the morning. Specially when little Joey suddenly remembers the class field trip slip is due today along with some money….oh yea, and the bus is waiting outside, we have all been there and as much as every mother tries to plan out every moment, it just isn’t realistic.
So, Pixie Chicago came up with a great solution for those last minute items to school:
notes to school, mommy must haves, pixie chicago, stationery
We are actually selling a lot more of these than I imagined since summer is approaching, but many mother’s say they can also work great for summer camp, daycare, etc. We love creating products that are not only designed well but also very functional.
We would love feedback from all the parents out there who could use a little something to help them with their every day lives.  Leave a comment below and let us know what product is missing from your life.  It doesn’t matter if it is a paper product or not, we want to read all comments!
Also, Pixie Chicago is offering 25% OFF of our must have envelopes for the month of June!!

  1. My kids are too old for these now, but it would have been great to have them when they were still in elementary school!! :)
