Hi peeps! It's friday and thought I'd jump on and say hello! This time of year is crazy for me. My photography company is busy taking prom and little league pictures, I've got Jumpy Kid in baseball, Steve has been busy after work building a gate for my dad at The Ranch (it's very cool, I'll post picks when it's all done) and I'm designing some new stuff in my spare time.
I just got this bit of fun news from Alicia at the Peanut Shell, the swaddler is in Pregnancy Magazine, yay! Oh by the way, I'd like to clarify, I did not invent the swaddler. In fact if you search google images for swaddler you will see there are a ton of them which a lot of them look extremely similar to each other. I was given the task of doing it a little differently. Here are my originals that I turned in.
Why do I tell you all this? Cause I have a CRAZY blog stalker right now. It's the same person but they keep cutting and pasting the same comment over and over and they link random websites and use fake emails but they are all left at the same time. Then every once in a while she resorts to leaving some words that make her sound like a twelve year old bully. Not to mention it's obvious that they are from a certain camp (which I won't bother to mention) since she is sooooo unprofessional. Hellooo it's like an episode of Americas dumbest criminals. This crazy person really wants to make sure to tell me I did not invent the swaddler. Ummm yes. never claimed to.
Ok, I just needed to get that off my chest. I know I shouldn't even give it any energy at all. It's so lame. My homegirl Alicia said it's time to grow thick skin. She's so right. There will always be one unprofessional cookadoo with nothing better to do I suppose.
Oh and just for the sake of clarity ... I didn't invent the purse either. ;)
No not wicked as in cool, Wicked as in the Play! A couple of weeks ago the girls in my family along with by 13 year old cousin (a boy) went to go see it. OH-EM-G! if you have not seen the play you must!!
Wizard of Oz has always been my absolute favorite movie. When I was little girl circa 1979-1980 we hadn't yet gotten our first VCR nor did we have The movie channels like HBO yet, no videos lying around to watch at will. But.... but... Once a year, on a very special Sunday evening they would play the Wizard of Oz on the television.
I remember waiting and waiting for that Sunday to come and my mom would make sure that my bath was already taken and she'd put pot pies in the oven a total treat for us ( I also waited and waited the eternity it took for pot pies to cook prior to the microwave oven) wow I'm just in my (late) thirties and my early childhood was in the techno stone ages, I mean we did have Atari, holla! but still. Anyway, I would put on my night gown and grab my Dukes of Hazzard sleeping bag and strawberry shortcake pillow and wait... and oh was it worth it. Then it would be over and I'd realize I'd have to wait a whole 'nother year. *sigh*
When the Wizard of Oz fabric collection was released I bought, I bought it all people there have been FOUR lines of it so far. And then we decided to go see Wicked and I wanted to make something for my mom, sister, cousin and neice and couldn't wait to dig in.
So I made these little zipper bags! And when I found out my cousin Tammy was bringing Shane I made him this one.
Skateboards are a bit more Man'ly don't you think? He said he was going to put his PS2 games in it, cool.
Have you seen Wicked? If so, did you not love it? I loooooved it and would go see it again. For Xmas two years ago my mom bought me the special edition double DVD set of Wizard of Oz. It is still unopened because I haven't seen it in years and wanted to wait 'til Jumpy Kid was old enough to watch it with. He's seven now and I think we're ready, I mean the kid loved Pirates of the Caribbean and that was scarry although the Oz monkeys could give Pirates a run for the money!
