{AFD}

{AFD} does jewelry but they also make various other cool items.  When you are purchasing candles it makes sense to buy really cute decorative match boxes, right?  How about chip clips or decorative clipboards?  You never know what else we may have from AFD but I am sure it will be adorable.

Betty Hernandez
Betty Hernandez

Betty is an amazing knitter.  She makes a variety of items including headbands, fingerless gloves, hats, and scarves.  Her fingerless gloves come in two versions: a lighter weight cotton crocheted and heavier weight wool version.  These are good quality basic pieces that you can't live without!  Made for form and function while still looking good.

Beverly Laughlin
Beverly Laughlin

Beverly makes stunning fiber art scarves!  I have not seen another scarf like it.  She uses various ribbons, often variegated and stylized, that she sews together to create a wonderful lacy, artistic look that comes across as elegant.  It reminds you of the delicacy of lace and the beauty of an abstract painting.  This is a grown up scarf!

Carol Tackett
Carol Tackett

Carol is an amazing seamstress.  She can (and has done) several alterations and fixes for me.  Carol takes great care in her fabric crafts.  Often hand finishing items so you do not see any stitches.  Carol makes large and small wallets, men's and women's sewing kits, bags, e reader covers, eyeglass holders, and jewelry holders that are great for home or travel.   Carol can do anything!  Carol's sewing skills are unsurpassed!

CMH Designs
CMH Designs

CMH Designs creates bibs in three different sizes and burp clothes that are amazingly soft and snuggly.   There is sometimes a bib and burp set.  CMH Designs is also the creator of Whee Ones.  These adorable little stuffed animals are made of remnants and scraps of fleece materials.  All of the Whee Ones have a name and a listing of their favorite activities and foods.  Not only is CMH Designs making good products but products that give back.  There are two lines within the Whee Ones collection that support non-profit organizations: Major Meow and Sargent Woof support Nowzad.  A non-profit that helps reunite dogs and cats that have been "adopted" by service personal while serving in Afghanistan.  There are several animals done in pink and purple in the Sense of Security line.  Sense of Security is a Denver based organization that helps breast cancer patients across Colorado with financial aid for basic needs such as housing, food, child care, transportation, etc while undergoing treatment.  It is immediate help now for those in need.

Dannielle Rossi
Dannielle Rossi

Danny hand sews her fabulous felted hangings.  The fabric is old felted sweaters or other wool fabrics.  At Christmas time these are ornaments that can barely be kept in stock!  The Colorado "pillows" are great year round as hostess gifts, college dorm reminders of home, or a Colorado gift for overseas travel.  They are lightweight and unbreakable so travel well to anywhere!  This is one of our hot items!

Donna Moody
Donna Moody

Donna makes adorable and functional wristlet purses.  Just enough space to hold your phone, money and keys with a great wrist strap which makes it easier to carry on a night out or while traveling.  Most of the bags are quilted/lined so there is even a bit of protection for the phone!  These also make a great first purse for younger girls also.

Elizabeth Kamau
Elizabeth Kamau

Elizabeth is a magician!  She creates fairies "from scratch".  Each fairie is unique and wonderfully in motion.  Elizabeth is extremely talented in capturing the movement of the clothing on each fairie.  Some fairies are dancing, some are flying, some are relaxing on a leaf or branch.  If you are a fairie lover then you will be enthralled with these fairies!

Haas Enterprises
Haas Enterprises

Jan Haas has created a self-care deck of cards for every woman who feels they need to start making time for themselves.  How many times have you wished for a moment alone but then when you get five minutes alone you don't know how best to use that 5 minutes?  With this deck of cards you can move from chaos to calm, from tired to energized!  Carry the deck with you and take advantage of those few minutes waiting for the kids to get out of school, or at soccer practice.This is good for everyone, young and old, man or woman.

Helen Lozynsky
Helen Lozynsky

Helen is another of our sewing talented.  At present we carry small fabric bags that I call "little precious bags" that are perfect for holding your small precious things!  They are a great way to "wrap" a small gift or jewelry.  Around holidays we will have themed bags also.  I have had a few customers use these as tooth fairy bags or jewelry holders when they travel.  It makes it easier when the bag is hung by the bed with a tooth rather than digging under a pillow!  Helen also does cards.  check out her listing under Music, Books and Cards.

Hierath Products
Hierath Products

Hierath Products makes a slim wallet that is perfect for carrying your cash and a few cards and ID.  There are several colors to choose from.  These wallets are soft and slim and work well in a front or back pocket of your pants.  This is a great gift for the guys! Caboodle is the exclusive distributor of the SlimThin Wallet!

Holli Thompson
Holli Thompson

Holli is an incredible paper mache artist.  She makes her own paper mache and then uses it to make sculptures.  Right now we have divas,  fairies, hearts and houses.  These colorful art pieces hang on your wall and will add that pop of whimsy to any room.

Jeremy Keenen
Jeremy Keenen

Jeremy is another of our young entrepreneurs.  And did you notice what his initials are?  That is just a cool coincidence.  You see, Jeremy makes magic wands.  Very much like what you would find at Olivander's!  Each wand has a name, it's length and wood listed on the tag.    Come let the wand choose you!

Jessica Snavlin
Jessica Snavlin

Jessica creates fabulous fabric flowers and then puts them on barrettes and headbands.  We often have flowers that are seasonal so you can change out your hair accessories to match the season.  These flowers are wonderful for children but we also have colors that are suitable for adults also.  These flowers are a more defined flower rather than just a puffy flower.  The petals are defined and these are more flat than puffy.

Wild Women Spirit Totem
Wild Women Spirit Totem

The Wild Women at Caboodle are one of my favorite items!  I have carried them since the very beginning.  Kit uses sticks, buckeyes and ribbon to create a one-of-a-kind wild woman.  Attached is her copyrighted poem that speaks to being a wild woman and dancing to the beat of your own drum.  The easy part is deciding you are buying one of these.  The hard part comes in picking which one!  I have several customers who have bought one for every female friend they have.  These are fantastic for birthdays, graduations, retirements, life changes or just because!

Lindsey the Herbangardener
Lindsey the Herbangardener

Studies everywhere are showing the benefits of coloring.  Personally, I never gave up coloring even when it wasn't the new "in" thing.  :)  Lindsey has taken great time and effort to create 20 wonderful mandalas all by hand.  These are not computer generated symmetrical mandalas but rather pencil and eraser, hand-drawn beautifully imperfect designs.  The black and white designs are beautiful in their own right-thus the magnets!  You can purchase the coloring book with 20 mandalas, individual coloring sheets or magnets ( + 3 more designs).  This book is also the basis for our Coloring the Stress Away class!

Marie Speas
Marie Speas

Marie does all kinds of paper crafts but for the time being we are only carrying her gift card holders and gift tags.  She uses paper to make the most adorable gift card holders.  These are actually riveted and quite sturdy and I think they would be quite usable after the gift card has been opened as a small ID wallet.  We have regular ones as well as seasonal themed card holders.

Mark Reece
Mark Reece

Mark makes canes and walking sticks.  He uses woods he collects and embellishes each stick with stones, coins, paint or carvings.  Each cane or walking stick is unique and no two will be alike.  All sticks have a rubber foot to help with slipping.  Handles are wood or root.  Height can be custom ordered so you are certain to get the right size.

Missy Sharman
Missy Sharman

Missy took a required task of middle school and made it a fun business.  When I was in Jr. High we had to cover our textbooks with brown paper bags to protect them.  Missy took that idea and used handled paper bags and her adorable bottle cap flowers to make a covered composition journal a gift worthy of ooohs and ahhs.  These journals come in two sizes: one is large normal size and the other is smaller and perfect for a purse or the car.  If the journals aren't your thing then grab an awesome flower magnet for your fridge or workspace.  The magnet flowers also come in two sizes.  Missy will also have seasonally themed bottlecap magnets that are so adorable you can't stand it!

Monika Strauss
Monika Strauss

Monika has been our resident scarf maker for several years now.  Her multi-colored scarves have been a best seller at Caboodle since she first came to us.  Monika's scarves are either knit or crocheted and her materials cover the gambit from acrylics to alpaca wools.  She does everything from circular scarves, solid colors for men, thin and thick scarves.  Just about anything!  Everyone loves a comfy handmade scarf and you will not find one at a better price than Monika's!

Nancy Iona
Nancy Iona

Nancy is a weaver.  She does an incredible job weaving scarves (which I also think would be used as table runners)in a variety of materials-mainly cotton and wool.  She has also made a few tapestry wall hangings and ornaments at Christmas time.  Her prices are not anywhere what you would expect to pay for a woven item.  It is more than a deal it is a bargain!

Pink Instincts
Pink Instincts

The Pink Instincts team has created a card game that every woman should have in her drawer.  It is called Build-a-Man.  Each card has a different man trait on it and a point value with either negative or positive points.  You have to decide which traits you can live with and which you can't!  This hilarious game is a fun night out (or in) with the ladies.  It is perfect for ladies night, bridal parties, divorce parties, married or single ladies!  A few friends, a bottle of wine and Build-a-Man makes for a great evening!

Rebecca Lewin
Rebecca Lewin

Rebecca makes our pine needle bowls.  That sounds so simple but they are really amazing.  The variety of sizes and shapes has been awesome.  From tiny little baskets to large fruit baskets.  She has even made custom pieces for customers.  Some of the bowls have been lidded.  Rebecca looks for sea glass and cool shells when she travels to the beach.  The bottoms of the baskets include slices of walnuts or shells to solid wood pieces, stone, jewelry pieces or metal figurines.  Sometimes Rebecca will use different colored simulated leather cording for a different look.  Not two baskets are ever exactly alike so if you see one you really like it's best to grab it while you can.  These baskets are food safe and water safe.  They can even be soap dishes!

Red Easel Studio
Red Easel Studio

I am so excited to have Red Easel Studio at Caboodle.  It took a bit of convincing that her felted items would sell.  Wynne is an accomplished artist who does magnificent paintings which is what she sells at her studio but at Caboodle we sell her smaller arts.  Mainly felted items.  We carry felted gnomes, zombies/voodoo dolls and owls.  For Christmas Wynne has done ornaments.  Wynne can do some custom work also.  Her little gnomes are seriously one of my favorites. 

Renee Feece
Renee Feece

Renee makes adorable cork ponies.  Not just any pony though, sports team themed ponies.  We currently have the Avalanche, Broncos, and Buffs.  During the Rockies season we had the Rockies also.  Christmas time will bring reindeer that are perfect for every tree also.  Perfect for every fan!  Renee also carries a fabulous Tinman from The Wizard of Oz.  These tinmen are big and will definitely be noticed on your porch or yard.  You can't help but smile when you look at the tinman.

Sara Schumar
Sara Schumar

Sara keeps us stocked in simple cute headbands.  From simple, sparkly, fabric covered, thin headbands to beaded flowers or a few pearls these headbands do the job with classic elegance.

Tabitha Dinegar
Tabitha Dinegar

Tabitha makes ice dyed scarves in various material, sizes and colors.  The really cool thing about these iced dyed items is that you never know what the final product will really look like.  With an ice dyed item you lay it out and cover it with ice then sprinkle the dye on top of the ice and let it melt.  The color combinations are all a result of the ice melting.  It is wonderful!  In the ice dye line we have a silk and satin scarf, rayon jersey and regular rayon infinity scarves, and a fringed wide scarf that could be used as a wrap.  Tabitha is where hippie meets modern day! She also makes batik items as well. 

Touch of Sas
Touch of Sas

Susan from Touch of Sas makes mini love catchers, serenity catchers and crosses.  These fabulous little creations are made of wire and beads.  There is a little story you can take with about each of them if you would like.  These are great for rear view mirrors, as a wall hanging, as an ornament or as a little something extra on the top of a gift package.  As with many things at Caboodle, no two are alike so grab one if it really strikes your fancy.
