Ever wish you could turn back time? I do – so my little guy would be able to rock his “Oh Canada” winter toque for a little longer! Not that I’m knocking the arrival of spring (bring on the warmer temps!), but still, there’s just something about wee ones all bundled up that is so enduring. And thanks to Jen, the multi-talented mama and designer behind Jen’s Creative Corner, Ryder had the warmest ears on the block this past winter!
Jen is an Interior Designer turned stay-at-home mom/photographer. Originally from Iowa, she married a Canadian hockey player (we have a few of those, eh?) and after some shuffling, her family is currently stationed in Alabama. With two daughters and a little boy on the way, Jen has her hands full – but still finds time to indulge in her creative side. And she happens to create incredibly warm and adorable hats!
Check out her Etsy Shop, Jen’s Creative Corner, where you’ll find helmet hats, berets, toques, and my personal favourite – Canadian/hockey items that will showcase your country and team pride. (Click to enlarge images below.)
Jen generously sent Ryder an “Oh Canada – Blue” toque pictured above, and to quote my husband: “It’s the nicest hat I’ve ever seen.” Now if you know my husband, you’ll know he’s picky about his fashion choices – and in turn Ryder’s – so that’s a pretty sweet compliment! I love that the toque can be tied under to secure on extra-cold days, or worn with the braided sides hanging loose for a more casual look and feel. The quality is superb, and I’m a huge fan of one-of-a-kind vs. mass market!
I must admit I’m also loving this “Puffy Hat” for moi – it’s the perfect beret for spring, and at only $15 USD, I can order it in just about any colour to match my wardrobe. Jen loves a challenge and rarely makes the same thing twice, so don’t hesitate to contact her for custom orders. Visit her online shop and you’ll notice she also creates gorgeous hair accessories and items for the home. And, if you “Like” Jen’s Creative Corner on Facebook, you’ll be entered into a draw for a FREE gift!
With NHL playoffs beginning in just under a month, why not order a team toque for your favourite little fan?

By the way, here’s Ryder enjoying his Oh Canada toque – it’s the one hat that he doesn’t immediately try to take off! He must love the twirly braids ;)
