Wild Life Prints

I fell in love with these sweet little prints as soon as I saw them.  You can get your very own from the Wild Life Prints Etsy Shop!

They would be adorable in a nursery.  And especially this one in my new nieces room.

Or quirky in a powder room.

Dazzling in a tween room!

And I have NUMEROUS friends I could give this too.
I am Sewing, Hear Me Roar!!!

This one strikes my fancy because the Houston Rodeo is just 'round the corner!

Perfect in a boys room, no?  So silly, I love it!

And this is probably my favorite.

Reminds me of the old saying, "Like a bull in a china closet!" 

These prints really do it for me.  Brings in the unique without being too OUT THERE or far out.  Although, they truly are FAR OUT!!!!  Like, totally, dude.

Be sure to take a peek for yourself...just click here!

My Favorite Kind of Books - Barefoot

I want to introduce you all to a wonderful company and producer of my favorite type of books!  This company is known as Barefoot Books.

Explore. Imagine. Create. Connect. Give Back. That’s what Barefoot Books is all about. It’s exploring other cultures, our planet, ourselves. It’s making time for make-believe and letting imaginations run wild and free. Most of all, it’s about using the power of stories to nourish the creative spark in everyone and strengthen connections with family, the global community, and the earth.

What is not to love about that??!!??  I was doing a Craft Show recently and there was a Barefoot Books Booth set up very close to mine.  I bartered.  Traded a piece of my artwork for two terrific books for Red Curlz.  The very noticable difference in Barefoot books is the amazing illustrations!  They are oh so lovely and bold. 

Red Curlz is the proud owner of...

The CD/song that goes with this book is terrific!  So catchy...we sing it all the time!  And we take it to Day Care to share with her class.  They all love it.  Click on the title above and you can hear a clip of the audio. 

Another great thing about Barefoot Books website is they provide tabs for age groups, so picking out the perfect book, for the perfect kiddo is just a click away!

I think this will be my next purchase for Red Curlz...

Not only is this an amazing book to have in your collection, but Barefoot books will donate ten percent of sales from Whole World to benefit global conservation.  Beat that. 

And you can.  By Books that Give Back!  This, and many other books you purchase, will ship directly to children in schools and libraries across Africa.

This is the kind of company that I would like to support.  You should definitely go check them out for yourself!

I forgot...

a modern teeter totter

Oh how I love this toy!?!?!

Rock the house with this simple rocker solution that epitomizes “play potential”. It can be used as a speeding motorcycle, a galloping horse or even a balance beam (when mom’s not looking). The open ended design allows kids to bring their imagination to life and create an experience all their own. Its large size allows for two kids to grab a hold and take off. It is constructed from durable molded ply as strong the log that inspired it. Get ready to rock.

Click here to learn more! 

I think this would be an excellent 3rd birthday present for Red Curlz.  And I also think many kiddos would love this to play on...

'Memba Her?

Mae Whitman is famous for playing Meg Ryan's daughter in "When a Man Loves a Woman," George Clooney's daughter in "One Fine Day" and Sandra Bullock's daughter in the 1998 film "Hope Floats."

You guys remember her, right?  I loved her little glasses.  She was so so cute.

Well, guess what she looks like now?

Still a cutie!  Click here for the newslink.
