Having this skill behind her belt she was always able to come up with all kinds of handmade creations whether by sewing machine or hand stitch. Life got busy with school and work and she lost touch with her passion for sewing. It was only recently Amanda picked up her needle and thread when she found out she was expecting her beautiful son, Gibson. Since then she has been creating baby outfits, bibs and has recently picked up macrame and knitting s a hobby. Keep an eye out for Amandas beautiful work on the website or contact Hippie Mama Gifts for her information.
House of Jude
A Canadian company that was born out of a love of Turkish Towels, also known as peshtemals. This mama set out to find her son, Jude, the softest, most absorbent towels and blankets made from traditional Turkish weave. After much searching, she realized that this specific fabric was nowhere to be found, and so became House of Jude. Beautifully hand-loomed by talented Turkish artisans, the more you wash this fabric the softer ad more absorbent it becomes. Made from a blend of quality Turkish cotton and bamboo, the unique weave dries quickly and is naturally antibacterial so it will never have that damp towel smell.
** Soak in cold water overnight before use to allow fibers to plump and begin natural softening process***

Paw Wow Holistic Pet Products
After adopting a pup from the WAG Animal Shelter, Tina and Constantine soon realized that their pooch's pre existing medical conditions began to worsen. Upon waiting for a critical surgery for their new dog they began looking for alternative solutions to manage treatments. After much research in dog nutrition and holistic pet diets they realized almost every bag of dog treats was full of additives, high carbohydrates and other junky ingredients. It was virtually impossible to find dog treats with clear and simple ingredients, so they decided to make their own. Paw Wow has been going strong since 2007 offering a healthier alternative to mainstream pet treats. Amazing, did I mention they source their ingredients locally AND they donate a portion of proceeds to local animal shelters? Everything about this company makes me feel good when I give y dogs one of their snacks.
