I’ve opened a Crochet & Breastmilk Cafe Press store.
I have lots of advocacy stuff, mostly breastfeeding, but in my own special way there’s plenty of stuff about crocheting as well. I spent tonight working on it. Everything there is 100% my own design, from the graphics to the words to how it’s all put together.
The first one is my favorite. It’s nearly impossible to read there, so here’s a bigger version:
I actually did more calculations than that, but I had to cut it down so it would show up better on the products. That figure for formula is actually a lowball one. The brand-name stuff the hospitals get you hooked on costs more (I was thankfully only given formula for one kid, but it was the $20 a can stuff–not that I used it).
I like to put the cost equation in easy-to-understand terms. It came up at Mothering one time that a woman was trying to convince her husband it was a good idea to breastfeed, and that’s when I did a little sleuthing & discovered you can buy a big-screen HDTV for the cost of a year’s worth of formula (again, with that lowball figure).
But I don’t care about televisions. I care about yarn.
