An Introduction – The Squishable Baby

Ultimate Blog Party 2013


I’m Lisa – the owner, operator, resident dyer and sewer, CEO, CFO, Administrative Assistant, Executive Assistant, President, Head Honcho, Accountant, payroll clerk, mailroom clerk and everything else you can imagine!

Many people ask how I came up with the name – The Squishable Baby. Well, it’s because I have 3 very cute and sweet squishes in my life – Two sons (8 years old and 7 months) and one baby girl (4 years old) – and one old (read very very old) Chemist squish! They are my all and my everything.  If it’s possible, I love them more and more each day.

Here, in my part of the internet, I blog – I dye – I sew – and I sell – and not necessarily in that order.  I care about the strength of the American family – so you will see me blogging about relationship strengthening ideas, family togetherness activities, eco-friendly tips, Squishable Baby softness, homeschooling, Natural parenting, faith, and a whole lot about kids…kids…kids…and more kids.  I love to talk about how to keep kids safe and in school doing the right thing!

You will find that everything I blog about – can be and should be done as a family. I’m all about the family being together and staying together.

When I’m not blogging, I’m dyeing. When I’m not dyeing, I’m sewing. Yep. I hand dye and sew Merino wool and bamboo pants for the little squishes in everybody’s life (whether it be sons/daughters, nieces/nephews, grandsons/granddaughters, or friends of friends) . They are fun, soft and squishy pants that they can rough and tumble play in – or go out at night and be fancy in! The fibers are certainly sustainable – and durable! Perfect for environmentally cautious busy body little squishes.
