This scarf is double sided and permantly shaped with darts so that it cups gently around and just below the mouth. It's made of the very best 100% cotton and comes in solid colors or small masculine or feminine prints. Special side openings allow you to place an absorbant layer of material inside (such as folded paper towels). This helps the scarf hold its shape and provides added absorbancy. The scarves sell for $8.95 each or $19.95 for a package of 3.
The crumb Catcher Apron is an attractive clothing protector designed to look like a small barbeque apron. It's made of washable vinyl with oversized stand-out pockets around the bottom edge and a loop in the center front to hold a small towel. Each one sells for $12.95

If you would like to receive my tiny little newsletter please fill in your first name and email address below. Hint: I've got few ideas about how you might get these paid for. Also, I think caregivers deserve all the support we can get and I'd really like to hear from other caregivers so we can discuss difficulties and brainstorm solutions. I promise I'll never sell this list
Oh, and check back often, I'm happily designing lots of other goodies.
