HERE'S AN IDEA - Alpaca Party Stickers Instead Of Cup Holders For Your Alpacas Rock Birthday Crafting Party or Alpaca Farm Days Events


One of the e-printables that I had also thought of creating for the "Alpacas Rock Products Gallery" line was cup wrappers.  However, when I was looking at all the different cup sizes that are available I decided there was no way I could create cup wrappers to fit all the different sizes.  So, I decided instead to create stickers of the Alpacas Rock graphics that could be applied to any size party cup. Just peel them from the label sheet and stick to the front of the party cups.

Here's the alpaca party cup stickers I've designed so far:


See our paper cups.

I will be designing more party cup stickers in the near future so stay tuned.  Party Cup Stickers instead of cup wrappers.  What a great idea!

HERE'S AN IDEA - Challenging Alpaca Jigsaw Puzzles For Birthday Crafting Party Fun



Two of the products I created for my "It's Raining Doll Parties Products Gallery" included three jigsaw puzzles with graphics that I had designed of the Hawk Family. One of the puzzles has the Hawk family children graphics on hearts, one has their square fabric images on it, and one the Hawk Family graphics with the words "It's Raining Doll Parties" on it.

The jigsaw puzzles come in two sizes: 8" by 10" puzzle in gift box and 10" by 14" puzzle with 252 pieces. The pieces are made of sturdy cardboard and mounted on chipboard and are printed in vivid colors with easy wipe clean surfaces. I decided to try two of the 10" by 14" size puzzles and ordered two of them.

When they arrived I was anxious to try them as I LOVE puzzles of all sorts and have since I was a child. Give me a puzzle to put together, a crossword puzzle to solve, Rubiks cube, three dimensional puzzle of the Empire State Building, etc. and I will work on it until I've finished it or solved it. I spent hours one weekend when I was a teenager solving the Rubiks cube. I worked on it and worked on it and worked on it until I solved it. Sounds a little obsessive compulsive doesn't it?

When I was a child I also adored spending hours on end putting jigsaw puzzles together. My mother did too and we spent many hours over the years sitting side by side doing our jigsaw puzzles. I was thrilled when the Monet impressionist paintings jigsaw puzzles first came out as they were harder to do. I was so in love with puzzles I even glued and mounted some of them on cardboard to hang on the walls in my room. I can't remember what the puzzles were - probably images of movie stars like Robert Goulet or Doris Day or the early rock bands like Hermans Hermits, Dave Clark Five, etc. Who knows. I'm definitely dating myself here.

In any event I've never outgrown my LOVE of puzzles. Kind of like my LOVE of dolls -something else I've never outgrown a love for. I could go on and on but need to get back to the story.

So, I was anxious to try my new puzzles but decided to wait until this weekend as I knew my grandson 'Noodles" was visiting this weekend and thought it would be fun to put them together with him.

I have to tell you that we had a wonderful time putting our two puzzles together.  They were challenging enough to keep us occupied for several hours. Since my grandson and I had such a wonderful time putting the Hawk Family puzzles together I decided to create several jigsaw puzzles for my new "Alpacas Rock" Products Gallery, which are shown below:


Browse other gifts from Zazzle.

With all those alpacas I think they will be challenging enough. What do you think? Might keep your guests occupied for quite a while. Alpaca jigsaw puzzles for Alpacas Rock birthday or crafting party fun. Or, wonderful children's activities for your alpaca farm days events.  What a great idea.

Plus, they make adorable gifts and wonderful merchandise for your alpaca farm store.

It's The Summer Of White Faced Alpaca Girls



It's the summer of beautiful white faced girls.  My sister has yet another beautiful alpaca baby girl with a white face named Gladiola.   Now she has a trio of white faced alpaca girls: Gladiola, Peony, and Marigold.


Gladiola is Zinnia's 2nd offspring and it looks like she has her mother's beautiful colored fiber.


Now my sister won't have any excuse for not giving me some more of the fiber I love using for doll hair. Hint! Hint!  Hope you're reading this baby sister.


Isn't Gladiola beautiful?


It's going to be hard tellling her apart from Peony, and Marigold - both shown below.

Peony 

Marigold

Here's what my sister had to say about Gladiola, "Some excitement on the farm today - our girl Zinnia finally went into labor (6 days late) only head and 1 leg presented; I had to go in; left leg was bent and down under pelvic bone - vet was on his way but I could not wait. I was able to straighten the leg and deliver a beautiful girl. I am SOOO proud of myself - the first time I was able to handle this! Mom and baby are doing fine.

Introducing our herd sire Cosmo's second cria - a girl, my husband Karl named Gladiola because we were so "glad" everything worked out fine and so "glad" the waiting is over!"

So now my sister has three adorable alpacas with beautiful white faces.

If you get a chance please visit my sister's two websites - Rock Garden Alpacas and Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber.
