( coin purses )

These are from Misala Handmade. Really, a cute coin purse is one of the great simple pleasures of life. Every time you pull it out to retrieve a coin, you get a little happy feeling.

< custom prints >

I have had soooo many requests for custom versions of my prints that I have decided to make a special custom section with listings to outline all the options. Now you can make your print exactly what you want! All kinds of options, including a personalized name.

~Oilily Spring/Summer 2012~

Here are some pieces from Oilily's Spring/Summer 2012 girl's collection. Such adorableness. Oilily will always be my favorite kid's clothes. Jewell has several pieces (she pulls it off so well with her red hair), none of which were purchased full price. Shop the store for the sale rack, try eBay, or watch Zulily (they offer about half off the previous season when they feature Oilily, but they go fast the morning they post them so prepare to wake up at 6 am). This stuff is so quality, so in my opinion one Oilily dress is worth at least 4 other dresses.

< Kate Spade Dresses >

I can't afford these dresses, but maybe you can! Or just get inspired. I will always love Kate Spade.

( Vintage Animals )

How cute are these? I just had to share. The little figures cost $30 a piece at Austria Brass on Etsy. I just discovered them because I am looking for different animal shapes to inspire a new children's book I am working on with my aunt (a Noah's Ark story aimed at toddlers).

This is my new logo for my graphic design services. I'm still playing around with it, but I think I like it.

= Mermaid Print in Action =

I was sooo excited to get a message from one of my customers sharing a link to her baby's room featured in Ohdeedoh (now part of Apartment Therapy). And there's my mermaid print! Woohoo! I made this mermaid print to go with Heather Ross's Mendocino mermaid fabric line, which I also have in my daughter Ivy's room (the pink version). So here's some pictures of that as well.

< Jason Wu for Target >

Here we go again! Another designer making affordable stuffs for your local Target. Designer Jason Wu has some adorable little numbers coming out (see the entire collection in the official Look Book here). These will be in stores February 5. So pencil that in if you see something you like.

+ Etsy Treasuries +

I've had items from my shop included in almost 60 treasuries now. Woohoo! (But still no front page. Sigh.) I thought I'd share the most recent, "Sunny to Partly Cloudy", because it's my favorite so far.

Guest Blogging

I'm guest blogging all this week at SEI Lifestyle (a scrapbooking company). Today's post is about making mini pillows (this one I made with a piece of Princess and the Pea fabric from Heather Ross's Far Far Away collection). Check out all the posts this week, and on Friday there will be a giveaway (from SEI, plus a coupon for The Paper Nut).

For once I'm posting something boyish for those of you who are sick of all the baby girl stuff! Here's an adorable new print from Petit Collage. A great deal at $40 for an 18X24" print.

< Gondola Dress >

Isn't this dress adorable? I found it on a site I just discovered called Shabby Apple. They're having 20% off everything right now, apparently. I would so snatch this up except I have zero moneys right now.
