I would like to introduce you to the Jamison Family.
A Bushel of Laughter is a store with precious and practical homemade items for yourself or to give as gifts. They will custom make things for you - so keep that in mind as you browse!
Aren't these adorable?!!
Sweet and simple cards.
I have this set. It is great to take with you for "quiet play".
You can't tell it by the photo, but these little pot scubbers are made from sratchy material that they crochet together. They are tough on stuck on food - we really like them. You can rinse them clean in your wash water or even through them in the laundry.
This is my favorite way to make coffee! You just rinse it clean and let it air dry. These work as great all purpose strainer for all kinds of kitchen tasks (like dripping whey out of homemade cheese or straining herbs out of my tinctures, vinegars or oils) - so you might want to get more than one! :-)

Go check them out to see what else they have. While you browse, think of way you can bless them, the farmers in Israel and whoever uses these items!
They know that you don't run the stitching through both sides (which encourages leeking).They also know that the shape of the pad make a differnce in the coverage. They have different sizes and obsorbancy levels to offer. They are gracious and kind in answering questions as well.
They have also added this really neat feature: The pads can be folded into a descrete little pack like the store bought ones! You just fold it over and snap. You can't even tell what it is! It is a very discrete way to carry and store the little guys, be it in your purse or drawer.
This next item is what I like to call "the Missing Link" - They call them Wet Bags. These bags make it so much more discrete and managable to use your cloth away from home! They have thought of every detail. There are two bags that snap together (very easily) on the four corners. This creates two seperate compartments that travel as one, which are ideally for a used and unused pads. They have color coded the zipper at the top (BRILLIANT!) - so you can easily see and rememebr which is which. To wash, you simply turn inside out and toss in the machine or hand wash. The outside is cotton and this inside is waterproof fabric, so the bag is secure from leaks inside your purse. The fold and snap design of their pads make it easy to tuck your day's supply in the bag without taking up too much space in your purse. I just LOVE LOVE these bags!
Once you make your initial investment in your set, you are done. No monthly purchasing of disposable products like before. They are far more healthy to use than the chemical laden products availabe on the market. They are very comfortable and you will never be caught without supplies. If you use cold water and just hand rinse thoroughly at the time of changing - then throw the in them in wash at the end of each day, they stay fresh and stain free. In some homes where their are more than one lady in the house, they will color code thier supplies to keep them seperate. While other families will just use them out of a common supply drawer but have their own wet bags. I feel good knowing my daughters have not and will not have to use chemical filled pads---ever!
OK, I can't end this post without directing you to meet - The Papa. He is a very talented artist whose paintings are just beautiful! You can see Bud's Esty store here. (He is an amazing husband, father and a treasured friend as well!)
