Happy Hallowween!!

I thought that this would be an appropriate day to share with you one of my favorite new finds! Meet Mademoiselle G. An art history major in Brussels who paints dark and mysterical (yes, I am making up my own words now!;) portraits with a wicked sense of humor! I just love them!

Drool Worthy Knit Patterns

It is getting to be that time of the year when the knitting needles start click-clacking in my house! I love to knit, but find it really hard to do in the heat of Southern California in the summer, so once Fall rolls around, I get really excited to get out my yarn basket and find new projects to tackle. Lately I have been noticing a lot of talented people selling their patterns on Etsy! Here are a few of my favorite finds, that I hope to get to try this season!!

Wunderkammer's Pattern 4-pack - Cephalopods and Corals

Fuzzy Mitten's Siamese Kitties

Pink Tank's Arrg Jolly Rogers Set

Hansigurumi's Baby Elephant

Letterpress Love!

This is an awesome movie all about letterpress. It is a dying art for sure, and to see the process makes me really wonder why! It is really interesting and truly an amazing art form!

Cool Mom Picks on TV!

The fabulous ladies behind on of my favorite kid-centric blogs, Cool Mom Picks, have filmed a series of segments showcasing some of their favorite kiddie finds for Alpha Mom TV. The thoughtful product choices these moms have made will inspire all households to think a little greener and focus more on the fun, and less on the blinking lights and crazy trends that a lot of parents find themselves surrounded by.

See the whole range of videos here. Oh, and soon these awesome segments will be airing on Cox and Comcast Digital cable networks nationwide via Alpha Mom On Demand! How very Cool! ;)


Ha! Feltidermy!! Now that's creative! Way to go, GirlSavage!!
