I have found yet another e-zine to fall in love with, Kireei: cosas bellas. It is written in Spanish, and has inspired me to work on my Spanish again. The pictures are gorgeous and the handmade lovelies are wonderful in any language.

Wow, what a week my Matryoshka dolls had! On Thursday, my little sweeties were a top pick in the Storque: Etsy's Handmade Blog. Joel Henriques, an artist and toy designer, wrote a fun tutorial on how to make your own Nesting Dolls. I was thrilled to have my dolls featured there.
And then, yesterday there they were in the Dallas Morning News. I discovered this as I was enjoying my annual Birthday Breakfast in Bed. What a fun birthday treat!

My Mom came to help me with this show.
She was so very helpful, and what a good time we had together.
Several new items made their debut at the Funky Finds.
These are Circus Softies made from all vintage fabric. The prints on these are so colorful and fun. They are also cuddly soft and weighted on the bottom gusset so they don't topple over.
Here is the Circus Clown, Elephant, and Giraffe.
The Dutchie Girls were also introduced at the Funky Finds.
These are made from imported Japanese fabric and vintage chenille.
Matryoshka Ornaments were very popular for holiday gifts.
And of course, we brought lots of Regal Baby Balls and Flower Clips.
We had Vespas and VW Buses for the boys,
And more Regal balls.
This sweetie and his "Craft Girls Get Me Hot" shirt was definitely the highlight of our day!
Lots of funky fun was had by all at the Funky Finds 2010.

Here's a little something I look forward to every season.
Modern Handmade Child is an "online magazine helping families embrace the handmade way of life." It is packed full of crafts to do with kids, fashion, and recipes.
I hope you enjoy this crafty, parenting e-zine as much as I do.
