Attention Parents this is sure to be a hit in your child's lunch box...I came across this company while searching for healthy all natural kids snacks for school.. I am always on the go between soccer practices and games.. I have three kids and all of them play soccer. I am always looking for portable healthy snacks. So I stumbled upon this company Buddy Fruits..I was happy to see an all natural fruit line that is portable and comes in resealable drink pouches.. I know what your thinking. Fruit that you drink? Yes. I felt the same way. So I contacted the company for a sample.. They sent me every flavor. Not only did I try it but my kids and husband as well. We loved it. My oldest daughter is 10 and type 1 diabetic. This is a great way for her to get a little boost when she's running around on the soccer Field. Her blood sugar always drops so it's a great way to boost her up naturally rather than use a glucose tablet.

This company is owned by a french family who moved to the United States because they had a passion for creating a product that is portable, Healthy and tastes really Yummy. They have created an assortment of flavors: Apple,Strawberry,Cinnamon,Banana,Multi Fruit..Remember to look beyond the fact your apple is in a pouch.. Think about not having to wash it,take the skin off,having sticky hands to wash or even finding somewhere to throw out the core.. The best part. If you don't finish it. Screw the top back on and stick it in the fridge or cooler.. You can't do that with a 1/2 eaten apple now can you? Try it for yourself.. Buddy Fruits is the way to have your fruit and drink it too..

Fabulous Find HollieLollie

Well another Etsy Friend.. Love her Creations.. So fresh and fun
FABULOUS! Here is a little something about Clare and how she got started and where she wants to go..

Hi, my name is Clare and I live in Bridgend a small town in South Wales. I am mum to my two little tinkers Sam 7yrs and Hollie (Lollie) 3yrs. I love spending any free time experimenting with new crafts, watching Sam play rugby on a Sunday morning and settling down in front of the TV to watch a good DVD.

I make fun, colourful and unique hand crafted gifts. Each design is made using only the finest designer fabrics, materials and embellishments. Gifts include pretty glass and fabric magnets, stylish bookmarks, sweet hair accessories, bunting and beautiful mini magnetic clipboards. Each product is carefully designed to add a little splash of colour and brighten up any room. I work mainly with paper and fabric but hope to expand upon this soon.

I have always considered myself to be creative, loving anything to do with art and craft. In college I studied Art & Design alongside my teaching degree but after entering the world of employment found I had very little free time and spent many years not even picking up a paintbrush.

One year I went on a holiday to Florida and discovered and fell in love with scrapbooking which made me realise I needed to start using my creativity again. When I became a full time Mum I began experimenting with different crafts, found the Etsy website and here I am today thoroughly happy and fulfilled in what I’m doing.

At the moment I only sell online through websites: Folksy.com, Etsy.com & Coriandr.com. I have also very recently been accepted to sell on Notonthehighstreet.com and am extremely pleased with the response I’m receiving so far. I have yet to sell through any craft fair venues but this is something I look forward to doing in the future.

I am mainly inspired by patterns and colour combinations I see everywhere in everyday life. I have a mini sketchbook/ notepad I take everywhere with me, where I keep all my ideas and inspirations.

My big plan is to get my own website up and running by this time next year and I also need to start concentrating on promoting Hollie Lollie outside of the crafting community. I have recently had a large delivery of beautiful designer fabrics and am looking forward to using them to expand upon my range of colourful bunting. I am also working on a range of clutch purses and accessories which I am very excited about at the moment.

HollieLollie is still very young as it was only started in April of this year, so I have been taking tips off other very helpful people for marketing. I have found invaluable advice through searching the many craft forums that are now available. I mainly promote through twitter, my blog and my facebook fan page, I'd recommend other crafters look into these marketing tools if they don't already use them as they do work.

I love photography and spend a lot of time uploading photos onto flickr where quite a few people have found me. Promotion particularly through the internet can be very time consuming but definitely worth it all in the long run. One day perhaps somebody else can do it for me!

Clare was so nice to offer a Giveaway for 2 hair accessories.. leave a comment and spread the love..Grab my button XO Good Luck!

Jesse Janes's another Fabulous Find!

Jodie Has a fun creative flair and I find her to be Fabulous.. Here is a little info about Jodi.

My name is Jodie, but everyone calls me Jesse… you, know, for ‘Jesse Jane’s.’ I’ve always lived in Maine, not far from the ocean and right now I’m just outside Portland. I have several wholesale accounts around the state as well as other parts of the country. In fact, a lot of my Scrabble Tile Pendants make their way around the world. I should probably get a world map and chart all the various countries my pendants have been shipped to. It would be fun to see.

I’ve been creating since I was about 10 years old when I started my first craft show business. I created a line of refrigerator magnets and I would make between $50 and $100 each weekend. It was big business for me! I’ve had some sort of craft business ever since.

Besides creating? I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend, watching BBC TV series (Doctor Who, Torchwood, Trial & Retribution, etc), reading Clive Cussler books and drinking coffee…. anytime of the day… I’m addicted!

While walking the NY gift show I stumbled upon my childhood creation.. The Cahootie. Only it was colorful and had themes. Mine never had themes it was made from outlined paper with the edges still attached.. I was amazed and overjoyed because I could bring this amazing colorful creation home to my daughters and watch them interact with this modernized classic game.

Cahootie an experience of Fun,Learning and a way for families and tweens to connect with their friends. After talking with the owner Blythe ,who is a joy to talk with, by the way.

After she merged with the creator Jeff Jurgensen they added a twist from the old to creating a pre-folded laminated paper with Fun,Colorful graphics.. I am so for the New. I mentioned earlier they have themes..
