A little substance....

It seems all too common that "store" blogs are just that, a blog about a store. Or it's items. Or it's sales. How about a little substance thrown in once in a while... like who's that mysterious person behind all those posts? Who's that creative genius that makes those items go from being an idea, to something you can add to your shopping cart? What do they like? What do they hate?

Well, we're going to get to the bottom of that for It's a Sticky Situation.

Comment on this post with your questions and the next blog post will be an informative, quirky, down right silly post about all those things the fans are dying to know. :)

Get your posts in quick, because the opportunity is only open until Saturday at midnight.

Next up: Sunday's Sticky Situation.

The life of a 3 year old

I spent the greater portion of this holiday weekend with my 3 year old niece. I don't have any children of my own (yet), so I get my share of "kid time" with her. We enjoy intellectual conversations during the hour long drive from her house to mine, we share stories over chocolate milk and cinnamon rolls for breakfast at the kitchen bar and watch entertaining animated movies. I've got to hand it to her, she's got good taste! We like a lot of the same things, depsite our 24 year age difference. She likes Hello Kitty, I like Hello Kitty. She loves the color pink, as do I. We both enjoy the outdoors. But there is definitely one thing we do not share a common interest in...... N-A-P-S! While I'd give just about anything to be able to take a nap everyday around 2pm, she wants nothing to do with them. So, this weekend I enjoyed cleaning the house while she un-enjoyed a nap each day. I have a great amount of respect for parents who can juggle keeping their house from turning into a land fill, while entertaining a small human under the age of 5. It's hard work!!!! But, we both loved every minute of our time together and always discuss on the hour long drive back to her house, what we'll do the next time she visits. The conversation usually ends with "NO NAPS!"

So, I took a stab at making some ceramic tile coasters. The set seen here will be for me and I'll be creating a set for the shop. Tell me what you think!

Also coming soon, mini Halloween cards! Keep on the look out.

♪ to my heart

I have to have my iPod or Pandora.com on when I create things for my shop. I don't do well in silence! This week, my stations or play lists of choice has been a mix of acoustic vocals of Marie Digby, smooth R&B sounds of Trey Songz and some motivational Chick Rock by Lesley Roy.

I have a very wide variety of music that I find enjoyable. Well, mostly everything except maybe headbanging rock or twangy Country Western. I tell my husband all the time to turn off his music because it either gives me a headache or is music to slit your wrists to! Something about men being able to tolerate something that I'd hardly call MUSIC, I don't really understand. I suppose he feels the same way about my bubble gum Pop. :) Thankfully, there are a few artists that we can both enjoy on long car rides, or blaring through the house while I'm cleaning and he's playing on the computer..... Coldplay, Linkin Park, Drake.

Here's my video of the week....
