"Fall" Flower Fridge Magnets

Even though we're deep in summer now, it will be Fall before we know it.  Is your refrigerator ready?
No, I'm not hinting that you may need to call a fridge maintenance man to make sure the appliance is sound.  I'm talking about fridge decor!
These fridge magnets each measure approximately 2 inches and are sold in a set of 4 for $5.
Maybe this color scheme doesn't go with your kitchen decor?  Want something different?  Email me and let me know which colors you prefer and I'll happily make them for you for no extra charge!

Kate the Koala

Meet Kate.
Kate is the sweetest little gal you'll ever meet!  She adores snuggling, snuggling, and more snuggling!  She is excited to make a new friend in YOU!
The best thing about Kate is that she can be customized however you choose!  I can make her in whatever color dress/flower you want.  What else do you want on her?  Headband?  Earrings?  The sky's the limit!
Kate's friend here is Kenny.  He's cute, too!  If you'd rather have a "Kenny" than a "Kate", I can do that easily.  And I can add a shirt to him in your choice of color. 
(Also, if you look close, you can see that Kenny's eyes are felt instead of plastic safety eyes like Kate's.  If you are purchasing this for a child under three years of age, the felt eyes are the safest!  Just let me know which you'd rather.)

A Mouse & His Cookie

If Laura Numeroff's "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" is one of your family's favorites (like it is ours!), you need your very own Mouse and Cookie!

Mouse is quite a handful in the book, but this little guy won't be any trouble for you!  He's easy-going and very lovable!  Your little one will love to snuggle him!  And the cookie is included!
(Please note: book is NOT included.)
This would also make a great gift for a preschool or kindergarten teacher!!!
(Mouse stands 4-5 inches tall from tip of ears to tip of toes and comes complete with braided tail, overalls, and cute pink nose!)

Attention All Boys!

I love making cute little girly things so much...the bows, the flowers, the fun girly-ness of it all!  But recently I realize that I have neglected the boys in my life!  Well, no more!

If your boys are anything like mine, they live to shoot guns and swing light sabers!  They're pretty much experts when it comes to toy weapons.  So I take it as a compliment that they LOVE these!  And I love that they can "fight" without any chance of getting hurt!
Each of these Astro-Blasters cost $20, but since it's a LOT more fun to play when someone else has one, too, you can buy
TWO for just $30!!!
Credit for the Astro-Blaster pattern goes to THIS girl.
(Pardon my fuzzy pictures, these photos came straight from my phone.)

Disney or Bust!

Have a Disney trip coming up?
Over Spring Break this year, we went to Disneyland and had a blast!  I wanted to keep our costs low, so instead of buying souvenir Mickey ears for my kids, I made them instead.  Needless to say, they turned out to be WAY cuter than the plastic/cloth ones they sell in the park!
People were stopping us right and left, asking where we had gotten them.
If you would like to order these cute ears, I will need a head circumference measurement.  And let me know if you would like them WITH or WITHOUT the bow.
Minnie Mouse ears $18
Mickey Mouse ears (no bow) $15
