I'll be working hard this month to create items that will be stocked in my store on October 26th, the next Full Moon. Look for previews during the week of Oct. 22nd.

Coming next Full Moon (Oct. 26):

*More stripey recycled longies to wear by the fire this Autumn

*fitted LunaBums diapers: theme....harvest, farewell to the light, autumn

*NEW PRODUCT* Natural disinfectant spray in blue cobalt bottles w/ cloths....for all of those yucky public places that we don't want our family to touch!

*NEW PRODUCT* Mama's wetbags

*NEW PRODUCT* fitteds from non-recycled fabrics

*NEW PRODUCT* Recycled, reusable bags

*NEW PRODUCT* Stripey pants
I'm finally finished with all of the orders for testers from last week! 13 diapers in all!

Every time I finish one, I think, "these are so cool!" I have several favorites, now. This one is definitely one of them. The pic doesn't do it justice, but.....



I really like how the fitted Rock Bottoms came out, too. I hadn't done them in fitteds before but am now really digging them! The one diaper is the back of a Phish tshirt. Someone else got the front of it with the actual text "Phish" on it. I thought this one was a really cool graphic, though.



So, I'm done until next stocking! Maybe I'll actually make some diapers for my own baby!!
Lunatique is also a member of an awesome congo (a group of shops in one store together) on Hyenacart called THE GRANOLA CHICKS (http://www.hyenacart.com/GranolaChicks/). It's a great group of Work-At-Home-Mamas that all embrace a natural "crunchy" way of living/parenting.

The Granola Chicks can be found IRL at the Houston B.I.R.T.H. Fair (http://www.houbirth.org/) and Lunatique will be there too! Well, at least some of my items will be. I hope you Houston-area people will stop by the fair and look for the Granola Chicks booth! I will have a couple of my diapers there that will be in a drawing. Grab one of my business cards and contact me if there's anything you want/need....and, as always, be sure to visit my online store!

Have a great day!!!
Hi! Welcome to the blog for the online store, Lunatique (http://hyenacart.com/Lunatique/). I'm Donna, owner and artist. Lunatique is a online store based at HyenaCart (a collection of earth friendly shops). Most of my creations have some element of recycling to them. My cloth diapers are partially made with recycled tshirts. I create wool longies and covers from recycled 100% wool sweaters. I enjoy going to the thrift stores and seeing what I can bring back home to create items for my customers. Currently, I am having lots of fun making Rock Bottoms. These are AI2 cloth diapers (meaning, no cover is required and there is a snap-in soaker). The outers of Rock Bottoms are made from recycled band tshirts. This project has been a blast. Here is an example of a Rock Bottom diaper:




Pictured here are my fitted diapers, also crafted from recycled tshirts:




Creating with recycled wool sweaters has been fun, too. I've only just started doing these and want to keep every pair myself!




So, that's what Lunatique is up to right now. I will be stocking at each Full Moon (and probably sometime in between if I have time). Please stop by my shop and look around. And keep coming back here for updates and information on new products. I will also be posting surprise discount codes from time to time. Don't miss out!!!
