I love making stuff with the kiddos & they love helping Mommy in the kitchen...so this past weekend we made Valentine cupcakes together! I know it's a little early for Valentine's day...but they don't know that...and we had a ball!
We kept it easy by using a box cake mix & frosting. What flavor you may ask? Cherry!
Babygirl broke an egg for the first time. There's a big difference between a four year old cracking an egg and a two year old cracking an egg. The four year old got the egg in the bowl & tossed the shell in the sink. The two year old got the egg in the bowl..on her shirt...on the counter...down the front of the cabinets...in one of the drawers...on the chair...and on the floor...not to mention all over her hands and even in her hair! She was just so excited!
Live & learn!

Yada Yada Yada is a maker of original embroidered children's apparel.
The expressions on the embroidered character's faces are priceless!
I especially love 'Cheeky the Squirrel': http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=19887347
and 'Rascal the Raccoon': http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7187807
Many unique shops like this one are closing their doors due to the CPSIA ruling on mandatory product testing. I've never heard of any child being harmed by lead in a pair of hand knitted mittens, or a hand crafted plush animal, or a hand tied tutu... it's such a shame. Sad for parents, kids, & crafters alike.
Please take the time to contact your state representatives & help get this crazy law amended!
You'll be happy to know that the owner/creator of yadayadayada is still getting her craft on with her other etsy shop, "pottery in the round" http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=100013
...where she makes the most amazing felted vessels & flowers!

I purchased it from HannahsTutus on etsy! http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5825567
Babygirl felt like a total princess in it...and her little dance brought a smile to everyone's face as she twirled & twirled!
The tutu is extremely well made...very professional looking...packaged very nicely & even included 'fluffing instructions' ... a true boutique item!
If you're looking for a tutu for your tiny dancer, I would highly recommend HannahsTutus!
