What’s in YOUR “Swag Bag”? : Tips

What is in your "SWAG BAG?" No Non-cents Nanna tells all.

What is in your “SWAG BAG?” No Non-cents Nanna tells all.

Local events organizers have adopted the name “Swag Bag” to draw in the crowds as a reward for the early bird shoppers. This post will share what Heart Felt Play Store is putting together 250 Swag Bag inserts to be hosted by *Shay No More Advertising, of Colorado, this summer.

If you are still wondering what a “SWAG BAG” is, this is No Non-cents Nanna version: In Hollywood a Swag Bag is the fancy-smancy gift bag of free expensive trips, clothes and keys to a new car that the rich and famous get at the Emmy’s or Oscars in hopes that the companies will get a celebrity endorsement.

Confessions of Re-creater: Critter Caps Kids Love!

No Non-cents Nanna is enjoying re-creating baseball caps into dinosaurs and other Critter Caps of the fun kind.

I admit:

  • I was nervous about hot gluing the felt triangles and googly eyes onto the centers of the baseball caps. *Even nibble fingers can get burned. OUCH! The snaggle teeth were a piece of cake, though.
  • I was inspired with the courage to hot glue by a number of Pins on PInterest, but I did my own thing as far as design.
  • Yes, you can DIY yourself for much cheaper than I will charge at local Colorado Springs events and on my Heart Felt Play Store on Shopify, **but do you have the time? ($3.99 plus shipping and any applicable taxes.)

*If you are thinking about kids making this as a craft: I will discourage use of the hot glue gun. In years past I have gotten a few nasty burns with hot glue by dumb accident. Choose another media like paper or foam that regular glue can be used.



Silly Socks Take over Heart Felt Play Store Overnight

Pretend dinosaur legs

Pretend dinosaur legs Just the imagination of No Non-cents Nanna’s head as colorful adult womens socks were shortened to fit kids feet and spikes were sewn into dinosaur spines.

In the early morning hours silly pairs of  dinosaur socks appeared on the catalog of Heart Felt Play Store. Was it by magic? No, it was the Shopify’s  technology used by Heart Felt Play Store. Click image to view on store.

In days of old when No Non-cents Nanna was young, socks were used to keep feet warm and protect our heels from blistering in our shoes. When a well worn sock got a hoe in the heel we might make a sock puppet with one and dust the dresser with the other one.
