Adorable Little Things...

I'm not sure how I came across Lauren Alane's site, but so very happy I did. She makes these cute little needle-felted (explanation to come) owls and birds and they are just adorable.

If you haven't been exposed to the needle felting craze, you basically take this big fluffy pieces of wool and poke them to death until you've shaped and smoothed them into cute little creatures like these. I'll admit, I took a trip to Michaeals, bought some wool and some needles and poked my heart out, but end result looked basically like something that my dog had chewed for several hours. All the more reason to admire the beauty of these little guys, but I will admit, it is a great tension reliever.

Lauren has a shop on Itsy that she updates about once a month, and she sends e-mails and notices of when the latest update will be, but I've still yet to get my hands on one of these little guys because they sell out so fast! She also makes cake toppers for weddings and can customize them to the match the couple. He designs were recently featured in a bridal magazine in Florida. Check out her blog for more fun pics and great trends. Her husband is a talented photographer and they take pics of the little guys in cute little settings and they just come alive!

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!


Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back. Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets.

Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad.

Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!!

Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night. I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?
