I have been busy with trying to knock some to do items off my list, but it keeps growing! I am sure you can relate to that.
One of my lists is new product ideas. I’m always thinking up more and getting suggestions from customers, so I have finally added a few to the site and updated some other products.
I will also sharing a 20% off code for Black Friday/Cyber Monday. AND – a special Gratitude = Giving event that will be happening in the Bear Paw Creek Insiders group on Facebook.

Make Your Own Streamers, Bags, and Balloon Balls
A little story, for 15 years I made our hoops for our streamers out of food grade tubing. Safe right? Well – a few years ago they failed the test for compliance on phthalates. WHAT! I was truly surprised since this is food grade tubing, meaning we are consuming drinks out of it. So – I went on the hunt for compliant hoops. I landed on poly-carbonate and had a bunch made up.
I thought it would be fun to offer these for sale so you can make your own streamers! At $1.25 each, this can help the budget and for those creatives out there, you’ll love being able to make your own styles up. You could even re-use them, tying on themed streamers, and taking them off for another event. Get your kids or clients involved making them!
Here some ideas of how you can do it:
- cut plastic table cloths into strips and tie them on
- fabric strips (thrift stores are great places to find fabric, sheets, or even clothing)
- crepe paper streamers
At a customer’s request, I’ve made up a case for the Martin Backpacker guitar. This was a fun project. I am still testing this product out on a few more people before I completely launch it, but if you are interested in it, shoot me an email and I’ll put you on the list. This product will be custom made to order, and will have limited availability each year.
The customer will be able to pick from my fabric stash, or send me their own choosing. Here is the fabric and case for the original customer.
I used the left over fabric to make up drawstring bags for her!
I just added more small zipper pouches to the site with a few new colors! These little pouches were originally made for small first aid kids to our 4-H group. The kids love to clip them on their bag, or belt loop to carry items in.
We are always coming up with new balloon balls! The apple one was suggested by Miss Carole of Macaroni Soup and the acorn by our daughter. We also attempted a banana, but so far that has been a fail! Another one on the list is a Christmas ornament.
These bags were inspired by my sister who wanted a bag that she could store egg shakers in and it would stand up so the kids could throw them in. These stand up bags are 12″ tall by 6″ wide. Great for storing small instruments or other items in.
Limited Stock on these.
