Wishing you Happy Yummy Holidays!

We will be leaving this weekend to see family (and hopefully snow) up North. Very exciting.

I made my first 3-D stuffed lamb from a vintage pattern. I can't get her to stand except on a carpet. Any suggestions? Fortunately, she is loved despite her disability.

Chalkboard Crazy

We've been going nuts painting everything with chalkboard paint! My favorite is the hangers which I am using to hang the Christmas dress I made for Anya.

That Panda is Killing Me!

Thanks for the great response to the rubber stamps announcement. I have been preparing orders for mailing, and that Panda! I've been putting him on everything. Gift tags, t-shirts, cards, and I still love him...

The Season of Giving

I designed this Animal Alphabet as a t-shirt some time ago, and recently got some posters printed as a fundraiser for my son's school. For the upcoming Holiday Season, we would like to send these free to any school, day care or children's charity. If you know of anyone who would benefit from this offer, please send an email to, or leave a comment.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Wishing all of you a lovely day full of precious family time. Ours is going like this so far:
Woke up to gorgeous sunshine and 70 degree weather. With everyone's bellies full of pancakes and chocolate chips - yum - the boys are digging in the garden, Anya stamping, and I am photographing the stamp sets that we are about to list. Peaceful and wonderful. Hope yours is too!

This is a little boy's version of a good pop-up. It's obvious what's on his mind these days.

All Things Piggy

Good news, my little one is feeling better. Thanks everyone, for your well wishes, we appreciate it!

When the little Piglet is in charge all week, you can be sure many piggy productions are afoot. Actually we have been making some pretty fun things! The biggest hit were these placemats, and a big help getting the soup down her, and my older one had fun devising animals for himself.

And since that certain yummy holiday is coming up, if you would like to try some yourself, leave a comment or send an email to and I will email you a template for a Piggy, Owl and a Turkey.

Sorry I haven't been posting, my little one has pneumonia, and things have been a little tenuous out here. I will probably take another week's break as I have to keep an eye on her.

Where are all the hot people?

I didn't realise just how irresistible a 4 yr old in front of a lemonade stand would be! My daughter, since it's still in the high 80's in mid October here in South Florida, wanted to have one last week, and it was an hour of pure fun and interesting people observation.

Most would stop and ask her, "How much for a glass, honey?", and she would say in her cute cartoony voice, "One coin please!" And she was so happy that someone wanted a glass, she would proceeded to carefully pick two cubes of ice from the ice bucket, and add lemonade to the glass, and hand it to her customer.

As soon as her last customer left, she would immediately assume sulk pose and say a million times, "Where are all the hot people mama?" and "Where are all the thirsty people, mama?" I guess patience is really a learned virtue, after all.

One person gave her a dollar and said they didn't want any lemonade. This made her so sad! She said "I don't want a dollar, I want to give him lemonade!"

Oh to be four again.

Accordion or Conventional?

We're having a hard time deciding what kind of soft book would be the best design. The conventional book design where the child is able to flip the pages, or the accordian fold-out design. I remember my own babies loving to flip pages, but the accordian design allows for easy fold out at the cribside or changing table. I'd love to hear what you think.

I saw these Matroyshkas made by one of my all time favourite artists some time ago and instantly fell in love. Of course there had to be a wee gallery set next! I finally ordered some blank ones, and painted them a couple of nights ago. Gosh it was tough! Now I have even more respect (if that's possible) for the amazing Irina. And I'm addicted to painting these things...
