So Long Twisty Wire

I typically do a lot of Christmas shopping on (at least Santa's shopping) because it's just so easy and they have every toy you could ever want. I loved the fact that this year they have Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging! Let me tell you, nothing is more frustrating than having a 3-year old screaming and trying to get at their new toy while you are sitting there untwisting 50 little wire ties, finding a screw-driver (those are the worst) and cutting tiny strings you can hardly see.

I guess since they don't have to worry about shop-lifting, they are able to offer this packaging with several of the toy vendors (Fisher Price being one) that eliminate all of those plastic twisty things and cut down on the amount of waste produced by product packaging! I'm sure we'll start to see more of this fabulous idea in the future. Click on the pic below for more details.


  1. Yay for Amazon!! What a great idea! That is an example of research and customer satisfaction being a priority

  2. Fabulous. Thanks for the FYI. I'm heading 0ver to Amazon this minute.

  3. I aw this on the news--what a great idea. The Fisher Price toys are the WORST to open!!! ugh.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

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!
