New Items!

I've been super busy lately trying to think of some new items to add to the shop. Here's just a couple of the newest ones that I think came out super cute.

First is Puss in Boots. He was made as part of a team challenge for the NaturalKids Team, the theme was fairy tales. ^_^


Next I thought I would get a head start on the Halloween and fall crowd so I made a little scardy cat kitty and a pumpkin. ^_^ Hope you all enjoy!

Remember When: A Tale of Growing Up

When I was a little girl, I couldn’t wait to grow up and be like my Mom, I wanted to do the things she did so badly. Everything looked fun and exciting; cooking, ironing and even washing floors looked like a blast to me. I had a little toy mop set when I was little and I used to pretend to be Cinderella and mop the whole kitchen floor, usually mopping myself into a corner and wondering how Mom did it without getting stuck in a corner herself.
Then there was Ironing, I remember watching my Mom do all the iron work and thinking to myself how fun it looked. She would show me tricks and things to do and when I got to try it, I ironed everything I could find, doll clothes, blankets, shirts, underwear, anything I could get my hands on! 
Of course there was the washing machine stage too, when Mom finally showed me how to do my own laundry. I was SO excited I washed everything in the house, dug stuff out of my closet just so I could do laundry and even went digging in storage for blankets I could wash. I know, I was a crazy kid. We didn’t need towels or anything washed for a week though! Hahaha
Now days when I have to iron, I think back to the days that I thought it was so much fun and wonder what happened! Mopping the floor isn’t nearly as fun as it was when I was 6 either and doing laundry, uhg! It’s amazing how things go from being so new and exciting to so everyday, been there done that and now it’s just a chore. I still remember those days though, when everything was so fun and exciting, when I was becoming a “big girl”, I think it’s kind of cute now.
       My sister just had a baby girl in April and I totally plan on getting her all those little things I had as a kid; the toy mop and broom and little play iron. I wonder if she’ll feel like I did when I was growing up. I think it will be fun to see. ^_^

We live in a world were everything is so fast paced, everyone has things to do and places to be. How often do you stop and enjoy those around you, what you have and who you are? I have been thinking a lot lately about things and have just been so thankful for all I have, my family and the fact that I have a roof over my head. I think it's important to remember to be thankful for what you have, not just think of what you need.So here's a few things I am Thankful for, what are you thankful for?

I am thankful for my family and friends.
I am thankful for all my animals which bring me smiles. ^_^
I am thankful for the house I live in and the food we eat.
Most of all, I am thankful I have a loving God who has answered so many of my prayers this year.

Looking forward to hearing from my readers as well. ^_^

Book Review Warriors 1-6 by Erin Hunter

I am a huge fan of fantasy, fairy tale and animal adventure stories. That said, when I discovered the Warriors by Erin Hunter I fell in love with the series right away. I am late to the party though, as these books have been out since about 2003-2004. Though I suppose it's good for me as I don't have to wait months for the next book to come out and I can just read them successively.

So what is this series about you ask? Cats! Wild cats and kittypets, rogue cats and dastardly ally cats, but mostly wild (clan) cats. The first series of 6 books follows a cat named Fireheart who was once a kittypet but always longed to be in the wild, catching his own prey and living the free life when he meets a couple of Clan cats that live in the forest and joins up with them. There are mysterious prophecies about how he will save them from some great danger, betrayal, murder, love, friendship, excitement and adventure galore. This series is non stop fun that keeps you reading until your eyes can barely stay open. I found it very unpredictable and totally enthralling, you feel for all of these cats and will want to see how the adventure ends.

The first book in the series is called Into The Wild and it's by Erin Hunter. I very highly recommended checking it out. And since I know once you read it you'll want to read the others in the series to see how it ends, here is a complete list of the first Warriors series:
1- Into the Wild
2- Fire and Ice
3- Forest of Secrets
4- Rising Storm
5- A Dangerous Path
6- The Darkest Hour

I would love to hear what any of my readers think of this series as well.

Happy reading!
