New Simon+Kabuki Back to School Props

New Simon+Kabuki Back to School Props

Summer came and went so quickly, I barely had time to do anything! I think I need to keep a list of summer to do’s like I do for everything else, then maybe I’d do more of the fun things I say I want to do every year. I didn’t really go to the beach or take much of a vacation, just a few long weekends. I always loved taking pics of my kids for the first day of school. I’d do videos also if they cooperated 🙂 Now that they are older I sure do miss those days (I don’t miss all of the paperwork, homework and driving constantly). Check out our Back to School photo props for your little cuties along with the rest of our art prints, thank you notes and mugs in our Etsy...

Support the Artists in the Cloud

I know all of you creative types know about Etsy, but if you consider yourself “creatively challenged” you may not be aware of the best place to shop in the entire internet Universe. (It might be tied with Zappos, which has more hot shoes than even I can keep up with). Etsy is like Amazon but for super cool, handmade stuff. I was searching the internet for sarcastic phrases last week because SOMEONE ACTUALLY PAYS ME MONEY to do stuff like that and I happened to come across these amazing handmade earrings that say “In one ear, out the other.” As luck would have it, I have my credit card number memorized in case of an emergency, and well, duh. So I sent in my order and commented to the ArtistQueenOfAllThingsResin that these were the best earrings ever. So I was already excited when my package arrived (quickly and inexpensively) and then I opened it and first there was this completely fabulous pillow box with a lucky number attached AND A BONUS NECKLACE with my second favorite word on it. Did she read my mind? No, because the necklace probably would have said f*ck instead of duh. But still. Oh, AND there was a coupon for my next purchase. So if you are looking for a gift for you mom, your sis, your friend or yourself (but not your mother-in-law) go to Etsy. And start with Resin8ingDarkness because if this post entertains you, then so will the jewelry in this awesome...

Valentine’s Day Party Inspiration

I’ve always loved doing cute personalized Valentine’s for my kids. I always included their picture and then attached it to a glassine envelope with candy inside to hand out at school. Now that my kids are out of elementary school it’s no longer cool to give those kinds of Valentines. I still think planning a party for them and a small group of friends would be fun. I’d start off with a homemade invitation that can be mailed and then I’d go out and buy our new Simon+Kabuki Valentine Party Set. We could do the iron/crayon hearts since they are old enough to use the iron themselves. We could also spend a lot of time in the kitchen making some great treats. They could bring them all home in the cute PotteryBarn Kids felt envelopes or you could even make them yourself if you have the time. Plus once they are a little older they can help with set up and clean up, while I sip lemonade out of a cute mason jar, my kind of party!   Looking for some fun Valentine’s gifts for your kids? Check out our Think Pink collection at Frecklebox.com.   Crayon Hearts, S+K Party Dishes, Heart Envelope, Think Pink, Bakerella Pops, Straws and Cupcakes, Mason...

Favorite Calendars for 2013

Have you made all of your New Year’s Resolutions yet? Like losing weight, eating healthier, exercising more, spending more time with your kids, balancing work and play, blah, blah, blah! I never make resolutions except one year I promised myself not to buy clothes in the wrong size. I had a tendency to buy clothes especially that were cute and on sale even if it wasn’t my size. So even though it was cute and cheap I looked crappy in it because it was usually too big. Every year I get a new calendar and try to organize my life. I usually get something very practical with lots of space to write stuff down and then every month I also transfer it to the large whiteboard calendar we have in the kitchen. It’s good to have the big picture and the month at a glance. But I love looking at creative calendars. It’s amazing that the same piece of information can be displayed so many ways. Here are a few of my favorites!   Zoo Calendar, Bubble Wrap Calendar, Doodle Calendar, Calendar Tin, Personalized Calendars, Cut Paper Calendar, Perpetual Calendar, Camera Calendar, Cubes Calendar, Knit...
