Eat me. . . Drink me. . .

Alice in Wonderland has always been one of my all-time favorite stories. It takes you away to somewhere far beyond reality where imagination mixes with a dose of pure madness.

I am a huge fan of Alice, as well as a huge fan of Tim Burton movies, and an even bigger fan of Johnny Depp. So obviously I'm a little bit excited to see the new Alice in Wonderland!! I'm counting down the days!

Here's a great trailer for the movie:

And now we go. . .

Down the rabbit hole. . .

I feel a review coming. . .

February 24, 2010
I am a lucky girl! I have a fantastic opportunity to do a review on the coolest product! It's from http://www.allchildrensfuniture.com/
This site is great! It's full of cool stuff like furniture (obviously), and great kids bedding and room decor, and even some amazing toys!
I don't want to give away what it is yet but I will tell you that it isn't furniture, it's a fabulous TOY for my cute little boys!

Right now my kids are hooked on trains and anything to do with trains. No, the review won't be about trains but I'm hoping this cool toy will open their eyes to the world outside of railroad tracks, trains stations, and steam engines.   ;)

We'll have to wait and see. . .

Adventures of the Craft Maiden

February 23, 2010
All year long we joke with my hubby and his sisters about what we are going to dress up as for Halloween. Even though we all know most of them won't dress up at all (party poopers!)
 We have even started coming up with "stupid superhero" names for each other! Sounds like fun right?

What Stupid Superhero would you be?

 While we were coming up with crazy names like "The Windbreaker" and "The Sprinkler" and "Super Bean" (FYI, these names weren't for me. lol.)

 . . . my Superhero name ended up being . . . CRAFT MAIDEN!

Dun Dun Dun.

I'm armed with glue guns, knitting needles, the ever impressive Bedazzler!

Watch out bad guys or I'll knit you a set of sparkly handcuffs!

Be afraid. . . be very afraid.

New goodies!

February 17, 2010
New goodies in our shop today!

I have a little boy who LOVES trains more than anything in the world! I think he would live on a train if he had the choice.
This tshirt was designed for him, my little engineer :)

Our newest bodysuit is "The World Revolves Around Me".
This one is dedicated to my youngest boy who has me wrapped around his little finger (and he knows it). My world really does revolve around my kids.
And just for fun, here's a new pic of our "Chick Magnet" bodysuit that was recently added to our Etsy.

It's so refreshing to have new items in my shop! I love having new designs to print. It mixes things up :)
Thanks for looking!

Fun Stuff: Skidders

February 8, 2010
As I was mosying through Target Boutique the other day I came across these:

They are called Skidders. They are sock shoes for babies and toddlers.
Needless to say, these shoes jumped into my shopping cart and rode home with me.

They easily slide on like socks and they have flexible rubber soles to protect cute little tootsies.
My little guy loves his new shoes, and I love that putting his shoes on isn't a wrestling match anymore.

Win, Win.

"Beat It" giveaway winner!

February 6, 2010
I can't say I'm thrilled with my last giveaway. With only 9 contest entries I think I need to do a new giveaway to redeem my last attempt. lol.  You live and you learn, eh?

The good news is that each entry had a 1 in 9 chance of being picked. So lots of love for the fans who entered the "beat it" onesie giveaway.  Thank you!

And our winner is. . .

Heather Lee

Heather said. . .
"I really like all your designs, love the chick magnet. I would like to see one that says PARTY CRASHER. Jake has always called our boys that because they were not technically invited."

BTW Heather, your idea is so cute! I hope to make a design with it and maybe we will see it in our shop.
Thank you to all who entered and keep you eyes open for our next giveaway.
I'm thinking. . . Blossoms!
