Rivage All-Natural Rejuvenating Mud Mask Review

I was recently offered the chance to try the All-Natural Rejuvenating Mud Mask. I was pretty excited about this.

Holiday report, fun times with toddlers

I hope all of you are having a great holiday weekend. I know we have been having loads of great quality time together. Dad is home, and really spending a lot of time with the happy toddler. They have been playing with crayons, snuggling and watching cartoons while momma has been working away on a project for a client.

Create Something One Of A Kind with Blurb

I get some great ideas as an affilliate with Blurb... Have you checked out their great deals? They have the perfect selection of gifts for everyone on your Christmas shopping list!!

Create Something One Of A Kind with Blurb

People love getting really creative, one-of-a-kind books for Christmas. Books that elicit a “where did you find this?” response. As the leading indie- and self-publishing platform, Blurb has an entire online bookstore full of unique books by an incredible array of undiscovered, self-published authors, artists, and photographers. And while these books probably aren’t in your recipient’s bookshelf, many of them should be. So, if you’re thinking of giving unique gifts this year, consider these titles. Each costs around $40 USD or less:

Cookie Cravings by Maria Lichty and Heidi LarsenWe all have cookie cravings. Popular food blogger Maria Lichter decided to put them into something deliciously original: A baking book featuring 30 recipes you won’t find anywhere else.

Dog by My Side by Adam SchnitzerThis charming collection of original, vintage photos shows us that as long as there have been cameras, we’ve wanted to photograph our canine best friends. As a special bonus, there’s a glossary of the early photographic methods used in the original images. 

Around the World with a Toy Camera by Giorgio GiussaniPerfect for the photography or graffiti-art fan on your list. This book is an explosion of gritty color that explores the wonders of street art and analog photography. 

Food Stories by Elena ScottA short, wonderfully illustrated collection of recipes (and food stories) that will inspire you to pick up the knife and spatula—or just pen and paper. 

Things I Love by Carol Nehls and Jessica RoseIllustrated and written many years apart by a mother and daughter, this sweet rhyming story told by a fox is pure joy for all ages.

Patent Pending by Jordan NatyshenChicken goggles, air-conditioned rocking chairs, monkey jockeys for greyhounds… humankind has invented and sought to patent some amazing and crazy things. Illustrator Jordan Natyshen illustrates some of the strangest in this history of odd inventions. 

Tiny Horses are Everywhere by Thea LuxThe perfect stocking-stuffer for fans of off-beat humor, this undeniably nutty book is based on a Tumblr blog and combines simple photo collages of small horses in human environments with incredibly funny captions.

Rouleaux by Anastassia EliasWhat can you do with an empty roll of toilet paper? If you’re French artist Anastassia Elias, you create tiny dioramas inside of the discarded tubes. Inspired by art and movies, these pieces are beautifully crafted, fun, and unbelievably detailed. 

Low Fidelity by Bobby GrossmanIf you, or someone you love, listened to New York punk and new wave in the 70s, chances are your favorite artist can be found in this book. Bobby Grossman photographed Iggy Pop, David Byrne, The Ramones, Debbie Harry, Andy Warhol and many more. This book is a time capsule of—and a love letter to—a legendary time, place, and sound.

Take a second and head over to Blurb to see if you can end your search for that perfect gift this season!

Make it Monday- Christmas cards

It is Christmas card time...I have been pretty busy with my contract work this month, but found time to whip up a few Christmas cards... these are mostly out of scraps and such that I have had on my table for a bit. 

I got this candle new stamp a little while ago, and have been playing with it.. I love it, and I think I will do a stamp on a lighter paper and color it in with markers for the next round of cards. I feel like I will be making quite a few this Christmas.

Love my Sizzix diecuts of the gingerbread man. I love looking for new projects for that guy! ( I made skeletons out of him for Halloween!)

I hope you have enjoyed my card making efforts for today.. more to come as Christmas gets closer. 

Introducing... JuicyCanvas... Customized art on onesies, shirts, bags, canvas...

I get to see many things online as I work my blog and expand my readership. I have been exposed to a new concept entirely this month with JuicyCanvas.  You choose from real original art, and the object to print it on- canvas, t-shirts, your phone cover, onesies... and then you can mix it up as your own creation...check this all out....

                                      Did you see this gorgeous baby of theirs?

Artur Maklyarevsky and Deb Brugiati recently launched JuicyCanvas, the first art and fashion marketplace that allows you to remix trending art and print it onto products. This week, they’ve launched their Indiegogo crowd funding campaign and are seeking the backing of fashion enthusiasts as they realize a vision of individual expression through fully remixable clothing.

The husband-wife-baby trio are from Buenos Aires/New York, art lovers and strong believers of active, creative consumers. It's their vision to create a world where everything can be remixed, redesigned and personalized. 

JuicyCanvas has amassed 200 international trending artists and designers, and with their Indiegogo campaign, any of these works can be customized and then printed onto apparel, including baby onesies, t-shirts and hoodies.

These are a few examples of their art, and how it can be transformed for your product...I am picturing matching momma t-shirts and baby onesies.....

I played around with their app, and this was what I created:

From this very nice work---

to this-- just messing about of course....

If I were to make my art, I would spend time and really work the piece, and play with the colors.. what fun to create and change!

isaBelt Review and Giveaway

I was presented with an opportunity to try out a new belt this month—isABelt. I really despise belts over all- they always bite me, and so I generally rough it without one. I was intrigued by this one though, and knew I had to try it.

Buttons Diapers Review

I was presented with the very exciting opportunity to try out some new fluff on my daughter, and could not say no! Buttons Diapers offered to send me a free diaper to try this month, and review on my blog.

Goldie Blox commercial, I love this!

If you haven't seen this commercial yet, go watch. I adore the theme of girls being creative with their minds, and not just stuck in this world of pink domestic toys!

I was a hardcore tom boy as a child- beating up little boys, climbing trees and playing in dirt. I was allowed to be what I was, and back in those days, it wasn't all pink princess toys and purple unicorns. I ended up in a male dominated profession, and I have done well. I haven't been a man hater either, as some folks would have you believe for women in a science career.

I strive to bring balance to my daughter's toys as well..when she is old enough, I will be happy to buy her one of these sets...


Note- I was not paid to post this- I just genuinely love this concept!
