Shelby The Hemp Mouse Colors

Shelby The Hemp Mouse. He (or she) is made entirely from hemp fabric and filled with organically grown catnip. Assorted colors. My kitty reviewer loves it. Obviously this stuff is fresh because he could detect it was his before I even opened the box. Shelby is tough so there are many play days ahead.

Check out their line of cat toys including some made with Silver Vine and Valerian root which are cat attractants similar to catnip. 

Visit them on Facebook for cute kitty pics. And information about their catnip with photos of their magical fields.

Selkirk Sport

Selkirk’s newest paddle – Amped Epic. It boasts both power and control. 

Power and control are two characteristics you would expect from a pickleball paddle and yet, before AMPED,  Pickleball paddles were designed for either power or control, not both. Selkirk set out to change that.

Determined not to sacrifice one characteristic by focusing on the other, we were relentlessly uncompromising in the creation of a paddle that delivers both characteristics you need to win the game.

To achieve this, the AMPED Series pioneered an entirely new technology, never before seen in the Pickleball industry. Combining a state of the art FiberFlex™ Fiberglass face with a thicker Polypropylene X5 Core™, AMPED paddles revolutionized the sport we all love and continue to amplify your power and your control.

 

FiberFlex™ Fiberglass face/ Polypropylene X5 Core™

Available in a mid-weight or light-weight and three color options.  Amethyst Purple looks great.

One week into my review of Selkirks’ Amped Epic I find it performs great for placement shots. The handle is comfortable and the grip keeps my hand feeling dry. The surface is pretty thick but the paddle is not heavy at all. There is no vibration. The thickness of the paddle gives my hand a different feel. The first few times with it, my plays felt kinda soft and serves felt solid but not necessarily powerful.  For me, it will take a few more times with it on the courts to get the power part of it. It’s coming. 

Have you tried this paddle? What has your experience been? Leave your comments below.

Selkirk offers several paddles. Details and specs are given for each of the paddles so that you can select what you want. A local sports store has pickleball paddles for beginners but they do not offer a quality paddle for intermediate + players.  I highly recommend the Selkirk high-performance paddle brand. 

Made in the USA. USAPA Approved.

-Alpaca Socks- ‘baby’ (micron 18-21) alpaca fiber-Made in the USA-

Performance Alpaca Socks - Grey//Purple

These socks were designed for being outdoors focusing on moisture management and staying in place. I found the Follow Hollow performance socks to be a superior choice. They are thinner than a typical wool sock but with the same warmth in cool outdoor wear. I didn’t get sweaty or damp feet. I did get a soft, comfortable fit! Alpaca can be worn in warm conditions, too. Great socks for just about any activity.

The socks have been keeping their shape and produced no fuzzing after a machine wash. Follow Hollow offers two unisex adult sock color choices (black/red and grey/purple) and two styles (performance and ankle). Looking forward to more colors and kid sizes.

Ellen Skea Marshall

I have identified as many things in my life. A daughter, a sister, a friend, a student, a teacher, a wife, a mother, but now, along with those things I am a fiber artist.

Living in the mountains of Western Maine, I am surrounded by beauty. Having lived in many parts of the country I have lots to draw upon when I sit down to draw, design, color plan and finally hook.

My mother’s mother, who was gone before I was born, was a rug hooker. My grandfather used to muse that he was afraid to leave home because his clothes would be turned into rugs while he was away. I am fortunate to have grown up walking on her rugs, not imagining at the time that I would be carrying on her tradition of hooking while giving it a modern twist with design elements and a use of fabrics that she didn’t have access to.

I love what I am doing now and hope that you will enjoy my designs, my work and want to stop by my ETSY shop and see the  patterns and finished pieces.

Please share this with others. The art of traditional rug hooking is making a comeback and it is very exciting to see. I am fortunate enough to be able to hook along side very talented women in Maine and continue this very important heritage craft.

archery is for everyone.

it’s an ancient sport that’s a FUN pastime today.

Review of a Two Bros Bows archery set:

The design of this archery set is pretty simple and “aimed” at being safe. The arrow is a dowel rod with the arrow head being a fabric covered foam ball. There are several fabric choices available for bows, arrows, and quiver bags. Recommended for ages 6+, they are easy to shoot and go really far.
