Childhood Memories Theme Contest WINNER!!!

This time around our theme for a contest among group members was "Childhood Memories". We were asked to submit a handmade item from our shop that was reminiscent of our childhood summers....

Our members voted, and The Crazy Elephant's Freezie Sleeves won!

We all remember eating Otter Pops and Freeze Pops in the hot sticky summers! The Crazy Elephant's sleeves protect little hands from the freezing cold (and prevent messy drips!) and best of all--they are earth friendly! You can reuse them over and over again...much better than the waste generated from wrapping a paper towel around them like my mom did :)
