  • Cookies at the Dark Side

    I have to admit, I am a Star Wars nerd.  Now that I admitted it, I have something else to admit... I'm proud of this fact!

    I was a late bloomer to the Star Wars phenomenon.  I remember going to theater to see Return of the Jedi when I was around 6 and honestly, I remember the experience more than the movie.  I was with all my cousins, which was rare because we all lived in different parts of California and Grammy was taking us.  She actually sat in the theater with the bunch of us between ages 6-8.  I know she was bored because this is in no way her kind of movie, but she was with her grandkids so she was content.  Back to my point, I was 6 and it was a movie about boy stuff.  Needless to say, I was not a fan yet.  It wasn't until the re-release of them in the theaters in the 90's that I became the crazy true fan I am today.  I was a young adult and now able to watch and understand the amazingness of Star Wars. 

    So...
    The other day I had a customer request our wonderland print (one of my favorite prints in the shop) and with the convo she asked if I could make this print.

    It seemed she saw something like it on pinterest and could not find it for sell.  I have been wanting to add Star Wars 'ism Prints to my shop for some time now but haven't gotten around to doing it.  When she had the request, it was my chance to be creative.  More to come now that the flood gates are open!!!

  • back to school time

    Eclu

    I love back to school time, even thought I have no kids and am not in school heehee.  However, I love when the stores are full of all the wonderful supplies that bring me back to my childhood.  I can't help myself, I am compelled to stock up on all the wonderful classic items I got back when I was a little girl.  I spent so much time organizing my desk and usually at story time, which I always got in trouble for.  So, to celebrate the wonderful thing of school and the joy (for me) of summer being almost over and fall on our doorsteps I have put together a fun school supply list for you to browse.  Enjoy!

    My intention was to get this posted on my birthday which was last thursday.  However, my birthday plans were changed last minute due to unforeseen circumstances and I ended up losing a whole day of work, the day I had set aside to create this post.  My special day was planned a month in advance to visit my old stomping grounds in Los Angeles but that plan fell through with short notice and a trip to Disneyland was created in replacement with an additional two days added to the original plan.  I had to act quickly making sure to get the time sensitive orders completed first.  Needless to say, the giveaway took a back seat to my customers.  So because of the change in plans, while at Disneyland I decided I wanted to give one of you part of the present.

    I ended up having a fantastic birthday, wish I was born in the winter because the park was hot and crowded but Nickolas and I planned well so we had a flawless experience... we go so often, we have learned how to navigate the park perfectly.

    Now on to the...

    Happy Independence Day!

    Hope you have fabulous plans for this americana holiday...
     I wanted to share with you these images of Disneyland Main Street
    which I took while on my yearly birthday visit just 4 days ago.
    I love the old buildings with the red white and blue flag decor.
    I threw in a picture from the past with Walt Disney to...
    Enjoy!

    I love how they still use the same celebration decoration!

  • New Blog Look

    I have been working on this blog all day!  Was worth it...  how does it look, do you like?

    I have to admit, I am not great when it comes to posting.  I tend to focus on new products and customer orders and simply don't have time to find things to share that inspire me.  I usually feel that since I have nothing to say, maybe I it's best that I share nothing at all because there is nothing worse than an uninspired post, right?

    Here's my idea...  I thought I could start sharing my projects, you know all those fantastic custom orders I work on.  I take a picture of every piece so why not share it with those that might be interested.  So as I finish up some orders, in the meantime here a clip from what I was watching this evening, Summer Magic. Don't you just love Burl Ives?!!!
