Here is a free owl pumpkin design, which I created last night for our own family carving night. I wanted to make this a downloadable PDF as I have in freebies past, but I don't know how to do it without my hubbie's help, so we'll just do this instead. Click on the art above and it should bring up the large 8X10 version to drag to your desktop (you may need to click "show original" and zoom in). You can rescale the art in your own computer programs. Feel free to repost this art or distribute it...just don't sell it or use the art for anything you're selling. Enjoy!

Here is my updated Mermaid Mommy & Baby print, available next month. I decided to revamp the old print because it just wasn't quite what I wanted (I hate to say this, but the more I look at it the more the mommy mermaid's face looked like an alien). I likely we still tweak this some, but I'm much more happy with it.

I post a lot of things that I use the word "adorable" to describe, but aren't these? I just got an email from The Disney Store (I do a lot of online shopping) apologizing for technical difficulties caused last Tuesday because a record number (thousands) of people tried to purchase dolls from the Disney Doll Collection at the same time (kinda like Target's Missoni Madness bogging down the site all day). So as recompense they are giving a 25% off your purchase from their site, today only (October 21). In case you're interested, here's the code: THANKYOU25

Alright, I just did a post for Land of Nod, but I've got to share the adorable additions to their Bla Bla line. These are relatively pricey compared to your average stuffed animal, but they are so worth it. They are completely fair trade, handmade, and amazing quality. Here's some that would be perfect in a boy's room. I have a doll for each of my girls, and despite the taunts that your kids won't care a lick about "designer" toys, my girls LOVE theirs. Jewell sleeps with hers (we named Lollie) every night.

These chairs are just in and don't they just make you WANT them? Land of Nod has some new cutie cushy chairs with matching "Noddomans," and they're all 15% off until this Monday.
Note: inspired by the recent request of my mom-of-twin-boys friend, I am going to do an all-boys week of posts starting Monday! Let's see what I can find....(I don't have any boys myself).

Yudus are ON SALE at Joann's fabrics right now for only $99. So I finally bought one. Woohoo! For those of you who don't know, this is a personal screen printing machine made by Provo Craft (Yay for my home town). They retail for up to $299, and it's hard to find them for less than $200. So this is a fantastic deal. Basically, the machine is an all-in-one screen printer that takes care of everything you need to silkscreen your own t-shirts, pillows, table cloths, posters, cards...you name it. It's not perfect and there are a lot of tutorials online about how to make it work well. But for $99 to get started, not a huge setback. I'll be keeping you updated on the projects I (eventually) churn out on this thing.

Did you know you can actually buy Liberty of London fabric? For some reason I didn't. It's pricey, but at least it's on sale right now at Fabric.com. Or you can get it from the Liberty of London site. And, though unfortunately completely sold out, there is a Hello Kitty line! Ah!!!
