Happy Halloween  


Cheyenne had so much fun carving pumpkins, trick or treating in her adorable WorldofWhimm scarecrow costume, and eating way too much candy for a 14 month old! According to her, lollipops are called "pop pops". A few pictures to commemorate the fun day...

Product Naming Contest!  


Alright helpful internet folks...I need your help! I am very excited about a new product I will be launching at Urban Craft in December (it will appear online on lollishops and etsy after that), but I need your help naming it!

The product is a fabric pouch filled with flaxseed (and probably a fragrance oil) that can be microwaved or frozen and used for sore muscles, bumps and bruises, cramps, headaches and more! There will be four sizes to accomodate babies through adults, and small bumps to backaches. The bags themselves are made from 100% cotton remnants from my other products...

So, the contest is this, comment on this post (or my thread on etsy). If I choose your name, I will send you a FREE flax pack after the product debut in December! You will be contacted for your address! This contest will remain open til I find the perfect name! So get creative, and the soooner the better; I need to start on packaging!

Twitter here I come!  


Well, I have heard about it...I have wondered about it...I have read about it...and now, I am part of it! It being twitter, of course. Sure sure, I am a bit late, but I got there eventually, and that is really what counts, right? It really is pretty easy to sign up and set up, so that is very nice, and it may prove to be a useful marketing tool, time will tell. For those of you on twitter, I am If you'd like to follow me there!

Overall, tonight has been a techno update night! I am visiting my folks,who have pets, so I didn't bring any of my products to work on, which means I have time (finally) to get all my online stuff updated instead! So tonight I started by updating my personal website with new info and new pictures (click on the logo to the left to check it out). Then I complied my list of newsletter subscribers and worked on my template. I just switched from constant contact to mailchimp and it is taking some getting used to, but there will be a newsletter sent out by the end of the week, so make sure you sign up! I also wrote up the main article for the newsletter. Then I joined twitter and got that all set up and now here I am, blogging...For someone who is kind of techno-challenged, I am quite proud of myself!

What have you been up to tonight?

So wise  


Owls are in, big time! I keep selling out of my owl wipe prints, and have had requests for little lovies to be made in the same prints (still thinking on that). So what is it you love about owls?
I love that the prints out there have a retro feel, and a modern feel too (don't ask me to explain, I don't get it either!). I have a couple more cute owl prints to come, but in the meantime, these are both currently available in my etsy shop!
