Lots of new items in my Etsy shop ChasingCalm, but good news! You can now buy them here as well.
Weighted blankets are a fantastic tool for helping our kiddos find a sense of calm when they are feeling overwhelmed. I created a unique design that uses pockets to hold the removable “weight pouches,” not only making it easier to wash but also to prolong use. If you stay start with a 7 pound blanket, after a few years your child might do better with 10. Once you’ve purchased a blanket from me, you can always order a new set of “weight pouches” to replace the old ones and continue using the same blanket.
Blankets are fully customizable. Choose your weight, blanket size and fabrics. Typically suggested weight is 10% of the person’s body weight plus 1-2 pounds.
My kids love these weighted blankets.

Weighted Lap Blankets
Weighed Lap Blankets are smaller blankets, primarily used on the lap while sitting. My son also has used it over his shoulders and back while sleeping. These blankets are lighter in weight, typically 5-8 pounds. At this point, I am using the typical design where the weight is not removable for washing. However, these blankets use Polly Pellets for their filling and are completely washable.

Relaxing Eye Pillows
Eye pillows are usually a known quantity so I won’t waste your time explaining them to you. However, I will point out that design also uses a Velcro closure on one end with a removable “rice pillow” which makes keeping your pillow clean a lot easier. Lots of options and fabrics available. As this design is new, I have regular, spot treat only, eye pillows still available and the new design is made to order.
Relaxing Eye Pillows
Relaxing Eye Pillow *New Design* There are times when our eye pillows get dirty. They get makeup on them, something is spilled on them and so on, yet we can't wash them without fear of changing the way they feel or ruining them outright. This design features a pillow cover with Velcro closure and a removable rice filled "pillow." When it gets dirty, remove the cover and toss it in the wash. Rice creates a nice soothing weight and creates a versatile use for the eye pillow. You can warm it in the microwave and use it to warm up or place it in the freezer for a cooling effect. You can also elect to add a essential oil to your rice pillow for a calming addition. Handmade with colorful cotton fabric and rice. Roughly 11 inches long by 5 inches wide. Weight is customizable to your desire. (Typically about a pound) Contact me for customizations including: Essential oils, Color preference or an elastic head strap.
