You guys are making me crave tater tots.

That is all. I have no stocking stuffer ideas to share

I came in here to post suggestions and now I just want crocheted tater tots! They are soooooo stinkin' cute!

Here is a list my mom pinned for me. Again, nothing compared to tater tots and an emergency clown nose.

I am thinking of doing a stocking for my mom this year, just to give her a little extra cheer. I can not remember the last time we did one. She loves word puzzles and word find so I will probably get her a couple of those books. Aside from that I will include a couple good candies, some fruit, hand warmers, a quilting tool, a pair of earrings or a necklace (nothing majorly expensive, but nice) and last but not least... Pez. The candy is horrible (imo) but it isn't a stocking w/o a pez dispenser.

Oh wow, it looks like a niblet! The marbled brown is so much better, for sure.

Somewhere out there tonight someone is making me crocheted tater tots. I just love the internet.

Jess, that's a pretty good list, I've got a few things on it already for him! (nuts and mints)

Fishing bait....I could put worms in his stocking! We've got a container full of worms (thousands) in the garage eating away at food scraps making compost so I guess I'll leave that idea alone.

That picture is priceless!! Ketchup!! The listing is great!! Who knows, you might have found a niche nobody else really has on Etsy.

I am so freakin' frakkin' excited I keep having to remind myself not to turn the laptop toward Mr. Spring to show him how awesome those tots are. Then I catch myself grinning like a ******* and I have to stop that so he won't ask me what I'm looking at.

GC, you rock.

You make me smile! The photos needed "something" and my sense of humor is kooky so I use it in the photography and descriptions. I may have to crochet up some more of these tater tots and get them in the shop.....I have a new item! You helped me meet one of my business goals: to come up with at least one new design every quarter and tater tot ornaments are this quarter's creation. Thanks for the business and the new niche

Maybe this is hokey, but I would have liked it as a kid:
iron-on bling and studs and patches and appliques to snazz up jeans and denim jackets, etc.

No offense to whoever wrote the pattern, but it didn't work for me. I didn't like hole in the bottom of the tots nor how rounded up the tops were, so I redid the beginning, the number of stitches per round and how I closed it up. I am so OCD!!!!!!!!!!

What did you make?????????????????
