Cozy Construction and Care

Protect your Kindles, Ipads, Scrap-booking (Cricut, Silhouette, Xyron), Binding and Laminating machines from those nasty little dust bunnies with a lovely cozy that is guaranteed to fit like a glove! Each cozy features pretty, coordinating fabrics (100% cotton) that have been machine-quilted over a layer of batting and muslin lining. All seams have been finished and the binding has been hand-basted. A button, bow, or applique embellishment adds a delightful finishing touch to each cozy. Your Cozy will certainly be a pretty addition to any work space, and will keep your Cricut Expressions/Cakes, Creates/Personal Cutters, Cuttlebugs, Gypsies, Imagines, Kindles, and Ipads free from dust, scratches, and normal wear-and-tear and damage for years to come! All cozies may be machine or hand-washed in cold water. Line dry or use low heat when drying in a clothes dryer. A cool iron may be used, if necessary. INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING INQUIRIES WELCOME. Orders will be shipped via USPS within 10-14 days of payment, and in most cases sooner. Click on pics to enlarge.

The Second Disney Pixar Blog Hop

Hi! Welcome one and all to the Second Disney Pixar Blog Hop! If you just came from Tami's Craft Connection, then you have hopped to the right spot!

When I was a little girl, I could always count on my mom to load me, my 2 sisters and my brother into our car and head to church every Sunday night. Don't get me wrong--I loved going to church, but on the rare occasion I got to stay home, I would nearly burst with excitement! I knew that soon Marlin Perkins would take me on an exotic journey to a far-away place where I would learn about animals that were too amazing for my little mind to contain. I can still hear the opening to "Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom" playing in my head. :) I never did understand what "Mutual of Omaha" meant, but there was no doubt about the "Wild Kingdom" part!

But, when I think back, "Wild Kingdom" was just the opening act for the real show..."The Wonderful World of Disney." After a brief commercial break (anticipation mounting!!!) a beautiful castle would materialize on the tv screen. I knew the castle had to be real. I was sure that I would one day live there with my very own prince. And then, magical little Tinkerbelle would fly out, igniting a spectacular fireworks display with her magic wand. Oh, how I wished I was a fairy!

For the next hour, I would sit so still, soaking up every magical moment. For a brief time, fantasy became reality and I was part of a world where animals could talk, princesses always found true love, and a happy ending was inevitable.

That's why I am so excited to be part of this hop! honor of all my happy, childhood memories, I've created not one, but TWO special Disney-themed Cricut Expression Cozies. Here they are:

This Cozy features the famous Tinkerbelle flying around on a lime-green background, with purple and teal daisies scattered all around. The coordinating purple fabric is vibrant and matches the purple daisies perfectly. This Cozy is sure to be a pretty addition to any Disney-themed crafting area.

The next Cozy I made is dedicated to that Classy Mouse who started it all--Mickey!

This Cozy features a comic strip Mickey in a variety of colors/poses. The perfect embellishment is a pair of buttons that look just like the ones found on the front of Mickey's britches!

Take a Walk on the Wild Side

This brand-new Cozy was designed by Michelle ( Isn't it amazing? She has great taste, doesn't she? I love the contrasts in this Cozy. The black/white, pink/black, leopard/zebra. It's so hot it just sizzles, doesn't it? :) And, of course, Michelle picked out the perfect finishing touch...a girl's best friend!'s not a real diamond, but it does sparkle just like one.

Disney Pixar Blog Candy

Recently, I was asked to participate as a sponsor in a Disney Pixar Blog Hop sponsored by some awesome ladies :) (Thanks Melissa and Shawn!)

The winner of my Minnie Mouse Cozy (pictured below) was Kim. I hope she loves it--I sure do! It features Minnie (she's workin' it!) on a light pink background, accented by red/white polka dot fabric. The perfect finishing touch is a hand-crocheted flower crocheted by my sister--thanks, Linda!!

Another Disney Pixar blog hop is scheduled for April 30-May 1 and I've been asked to participate as a stop on the hop :) (Sounds like a Dr. Seuss book, doesn't it?) I CAN'T WAIT! I already have a new fabric picked out and I'm dying to work on my new Disney Cozy. You are going to LOVE it! :) Hope to see you there!
