how to attract rabidly devoted customers

I think maybe the guys at ThreadBear have discovered the key to client loyalty, or at least they have in my case: CANDY. I needed some more Fizz and some needles, so look what Rob included:

Yes, they are Milky Way Caramels, and yes, they are delicious! For those of you who always thought Milky Ways were too fluffy, THIS is the solution!
And speaking of candy, well, I can’t eat it day and night, so why not wear it? Check this out. I have to confess, though, that while I adore sweet treats, the idea of smearing it on my lips is not as appealing as you might imagine. Still, some of those flavors might not be SO bad …
Well, I can get back to the candy-colored Bucket o’ Chic now that I have more Fizz and needles. In the meantime, I worked on a little surprise for Megan:

Shouldn’t everyone have a Christmas hat? I know I’ve only been making these crazy hats for Megan, so I do have plans to make her a really soft and pretty one soon!

    Cool! You’re obviously a fun person to be around! Those lip balms might give kissing hubby a twist — you could both wear it! Mix or match!

    Oh how cute is Megan’s tree hat! Excellent use of rickrack. Hey you made her the devil hat, how much cuter and softer can you get?
    Does your husband know men send you candy and yarn through the mail…? I thought not…

    Great tree hat — what a fine friend you are! Thought of you this morning when I put on my new IM hoodie — I had to get black because the medium pinks were all sold. I’m already a Lipmedic customer, but that’s an item I’ve yet to try . . .

  8. Amy says:

    Love the hat! Festive & functional, what could be better?

  9. carolyn says:

    i forgot to say 1) how much i love that hat, and 2) how wonderful a friend you are. my friend louise has same problem as megan and yet i have not gotten a single hat over there yet altho i have several “in the making.” i suck – you rock. and 3) go check madame i left you another shoutout. frankly that entire site is becoming a shoutout to you i should block all others access at this point. :) got any hot chocolate tips for me in milwaukee? if so email me at work. :)
