“Oh say can you see, some fruit on a stick” ……
Looking for a last minute Fourth of July craft or to jazz up some food for guests this Fourth of July? Than look no further than the “Star Spangled” fruit wand. Or Kabob. Whichever you would like to call it!
Here is how you do it :
+ Take your watermelon and make thin slices so that you can use the cookie cuter to pop out the watermelon stars.
+ Wash your berries and start making your berry patterns by pushing the berries onto the stick.
+ Throw in a Marshmallow (that was my “white” for “red, “white” an “blue” ) or not. My kids went straight for the Marshmallow first, then the fruit.
+ Endless pattern possibilities! No two fruit kabobs can be alike!
America the “fruitiful”. – S. Kipphut ( aka My Husband )

As a child, I remember sitting and watching morning cartoons — you know, the classic ones with the infamous cat and mouse — and out of the corner of my eye, my grandma would sit and knit away. I remember being captivated by the colorful wool peeking out of the project bag she took everywhere.
Today, of course, we rarely think of grandma when we think of knitting. Knitting has enjoyed a style revival, and everyone from young hipsters to fashionable moms to primary school children are picking up a set of needles. From the runway to the home, knit goods are everywhere.
At Babiekins, we love the revived art of knitting, especially as it combines with the surge in artisan goods and DIY. We can’t get enough of being able to make our own blankets, sweaters, and accessories. instead of relying on someone elses’s style preferences.
We especially love the company ‘we are knitters‘ — they sell beautiful knitting, crochet and petit point kits. Kits include a pair of knitting needles, enough skeins for the entire project, the pattern, a WAK label and a tapestry needle to finish your project.
Our top Babiekins picks are the Martina Cardigan kit, THIS mini Catori Kimono (I mean!!!) kit and the Cub Scarf is darling. These would make GREAT gifts for the special crafter in your life — or yes, for you, if you want to get your craft on. Treat yo’self!
Not feeling confident in your skills? There is no better time than now to learn. They even have snazzy learn how to knit videos HERE to help you learn the basics. What are you waiting for?
Say HELLO to “Love Bubby” ! Love Bubby is a kids fashion brand that specializes in stylish graphic t-shirts for little ones who want to make a statement. Established in 2016, Love Bubby was born in the urban paradise of Brooklyn, New York. Using premium quality tees for all of their designs, their “Tri-blend ” fabric makes these statement tees super soft and kid-approved. We love that their tees are unisex, focus on comfort, and make great conversation starters. Their most popular shirt is the “Little Feminist” tee, created to make a stance for gender equality. “It doesn’t hurt to start these conversations at a young age” says Love Bubby.
With a monochromatic color palette for their line, mamas love how there are so many creative ways to style them.

8 years ago, stylist and designer Felicity Chuter designed a beautiful children’s collection called ‘Let Them Eat Cake’ using large vintage floral fabrics. They weren’t just pieces of clothing but also pieces of art that could be passed down to younger siblings or even displayed in the home.
After a pause in the industry and the birth of her second daughter, Odetta, Felicity decided it was time to create again. Who We Are is her new company and like her previous brand — is just as beautiful. Who We Are is a collection of beautifully handmade bonnets in England for girls from 6 months to 3 years old.
They are made with traditional techniques & lined with silk to provide the softest feel to the little ones head! Made using true vintage fabrics or sustainably sourced pieces , these bonnets are heirloom quality.
