Little Piddles Review

Ok so I'm posting a lot today I know, but I have lots to say! Last week Andrea from Momma In Flip Flops 2 did a review for my store. I sent her a few hair accessories and a crochet headband for her baby girl. Andrea does lots of reviews and giveaways. I love seeing what cool new items she's talking about each week. This weeks giveaway is for a swimsuit. If you check out her blog you'll see the coupon code for 15% off (excluding furniture) till the end of this month. The holidays will be here before you know it!

Stampin' Up Deomonstrator Website

So I finally took the plunge and now have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator website. They receontly now have it set up where you can place your order right online. I for one have been using their line for at least 10 years. Yes, I can get stamps at my local crafts stores, but the quality just isn't the same. SU stamps are more detailed. They also have a lot of coordinating stamp pads, cardstock, and lets not forget markers. Soon I'll be posting some projects I'll be working on. My brown vinyl just arrived and I can't wait to start creating. So if you are into stamping or scrapbooking please check it out.

Dr. MOZ Review

In case you haven't seen it yet on my online store I carry The Goodfather cd-roms by Dr. MOZ. It's a cd-rom that teaches baby lessons, lists lots of names to choose from, along with other great tips. I just discovered that the team at Dr. MOZ has a baby blog where they spotlight cool baby items they've found online. One of which is the My Plate-Mate. I got some great ideas already off of their blog and I'm sure you will too. Check it out when you get a chance.

Walking to School by Eve Bunting

I just got a copy of this book a few weeks ago called Walking to School that was written by Eve Bunting who has hundreds and hundreds of books published. On the cover is my sister-in-law Mrs. S and my niece Miss M. They are featured throughout the book especially Miss M. The illustrator was looking for a very Irish looking girl and who better then Miss M with her beautiful red hair and freckles. Miss M had to go to the illustrator's house (he lived near them) over the course of 4 months so he could take pictures of her to do the oil paintings. For those who know Miss M you'll notice she's younger in this book. These pictures were taken 4 years ago and the book was just released last month.

Needless to say Miss K and Miss A think it's so cool that their aunt and cousin are in a book!
