The New Swatch?

Remember when Swatch watches were all the rage? If you grew up in the 80's like me, you do.
I remember dying to have one, and I finally got a red one. Then I wanted another one, the bigger one, so I could wear both of them together on the same wrist. Then my boyfriend and I swapped Swatch watches and when he decided to break up with me, he sent my watch back via his friend.

I was flipping through Rachel Ray magazine last week and I saw a cute new watch - The Sprout Watch -that is environmentally friendly and it reminded me a little of the Swatch because it had that fun, whimsical look about it.

I mostly forgot about it, but then walking through the National Mall in DC this past weekend, I saw them again. A lot of the Earth Day booths and exhibits were still up, and the folks from Sprout were passing out frisbees and I got to look at a watch in person. I think they are fun, would make great gifts and would work for all ages for  birthday, graduation, recognition, or just because! And don't forget, they are good for the earth too!

You can see the full line at Nordstrom, and you can order one for just $30!

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!
