It's coming soon!!

It isn't up and running just yet. But, in the works is my web page. It will show products I have made that are either ready made for sale or made by order. It will be under www.rogboutique.com So keep your eyes out for it! I know it will take some time to get it up and in order but I'm excited about the possibilities it will offer. Please feel free to check up on it often and make referrals to friends!

Pursuing Design

Reuben is currently working on book design #2, to be published this fall. We are hoping to get more book cover/illustrations jobs lined up in the near future.

Amanda is still contemplating starting a webpage to buy and order crochet items and other home made items. She is taking a dabble in a few different areas to see what works best and what is most enjoyable. We recently bought an organization station that we are working on getting set up. Hopefully once things are in better order we can both work more productively.

Hooked on Crochet

Lately I have been hooked on crochet. I've done it here and there over the years but just recently started making hats. I made some for my SIL who is undergoing cancer treatments and just couldn't stop! I am now trying to build up my stock and sell some. It will be a wide range of crochet items and any other thing I make along the way to sell. I'm sure it will take some time to get it all going but I'm getting excited with the thought of it. I'm thinking of calling my "store" Rog Boutique. Any other suggestions?
Here is the last hat I made. It was for my niece an
d one of my favorites!

The Crochet Frenzy!



I have recently started crocheting hats. I got started on my first one this past month when my sister-in-law started chemo and radiation treatments to treat her stage 4 cancer. She requested that anyone who can make them, make a hat with braids so she would feel like she still had long hair. So, I found a pattern and went with it. I have now completed 2 "wigs" and 1 regular hat. I realized that I can whip them out in NO time and still interact with my family while doing it. I started thinking...side job opportunity?? I'll post some pics, feel free to leave your input, with price ideas as well.

Cakes


I've always made my kid's birthday cakes. From Kaehlen's first birthday on. I have a Winnie the Pooh cake pan I've used for all of my kids first birthdays. Along with it I fix a "personal" size pooh cake. That way they have their own to devour! While this one is not my "favorite" as far as overall look goes, I love the idea and hopefully will do a better job on it next time. My head is going crazy with cake ideas this year. I can't wait to get started on Kaehlen's. But, since it's not till Nov I guess I'll have to wait to get it going. lol

Craft ideas

Well, it's getting to that time of year again...time to start thinking about Christmas. In our house it is extra busy due to 2 b-days before Christmas and 1 a month after. One thing I like to do to cut down on costs (extended family wise) is to make gifts. Last year I made bath salts. They were super easy and loads of fun to make. It takes some experimenting to get it right...but that just means I get to enjoy a bath while "testing" the product. I have so many ideas going through my head this year. Thankfully I pretty much have gifts figured out and most of them will be bought this year. But it doesn't keep my wheels from turning. I love doing crafty things! I just wish I had more reasons and time to do them. Whether it's baby blankets, bath salts, soap petals...the list goes on, I enjoy doing them.
