Kroger Brand "Simple Truth" Is Not Always Organic

Hi guys,
Just recently I discovered that the Kroger Brand, "Simple Truth", isn't always organic. Unfortunately for me and my family, I thought everything they made was organic. But I was wrong. It's probably because their logos are almost identical and so is the packaging.

Just take a look at their organic Logo vs their natural/semi-organic/who-the-heck-knows label:
These are Simple Truth brand Walnuts (halves and pieces). The one on the left is organic and the one on the right is not. To further confuse things they add that little lime green bar at the bottom of the non-organic product.  For some reason I've come to associate this color with organic food. This probably isn't very fair to add this as part of my gripe though. Because, even though it's used so often in organic products, there is no "rule" that says lime-green is an organic product only color.
But do you know what else isn't fair? The similarities between their organic and non-organic logos. 
I would call it brand confusion, but it's technically the same brand...what would we call it? organic-confusion?
Here's another example...two white cheddar macaroni and cheese boxes. Both next to each other on the aisle and both very similar in almost every way.
Same with the crackers....Ugh! They sit right next to each other!
Here's an example from the frozen aisle.
and from the breakfast aisle.

Now you know. If you're out shopping at any of Kroger's fine stores and you happen to want organic Simple Truth products, pay close attention to the logo.

Chloe the Felt Bear 

I had so much fun making this bear! Chloe is part of a new series I'm making of felt dolls and playsets. Her playset is actually a page out of a busy book or quiet book and will be the focus of my next video. I'm going to be giving out the patterns for my custom dolls and toys here for FREE so be sure to check back for more patterns.

If you've never worked with felt before, its super easy to work with. There are no seams to worry about and you can sew everything by hand using embroidery thread. Best of all it doesn't cost much (it's somewhere around 25 cents a sheet at my local walmart). 

Be sure to watch the full instructional video for FREE on the Tiffany Bliss channel on YouTube.

How To Make a Custom Felt Elsa Doll

Hi, wow it feels weird writing on the website since I almost never use it. But, since I created a felt doll pattern and I wanted to share it with you guys, I thought this is probably the best place to be.

Okay, so...making felt dolls is a lot easier than it looks and they turn out so cute. You should probably check out my latest video on how to make a custom Elsa doll out of felt below if you haven't already seen it.

And you can print out the free pattern by clicking on the pictures. They should open up in a new window and then you can right click and select print or drag it to your desktop and print from there.

 Anyway, you guys are awesome! Thanks for stopping by my website! :) I might even start using it more often...who knows? But you can definitely catch me on YouTube. That's all for now. See you next time. :)
