TerryAnn coordinates this feature, and you can read the interview at the Military Brats blog or in the forums at Etsy. Thanks TerryAnn!!
To celebrate, I'm offering free shipping at The Lavender Lizard and at The Lavender Ladybug from now through Monday, December 1. Please mention "Brats" in the Notes to Seller.
I love Iron Chef, especially the original Japanese show, because of the dubbing and the weirdly different food. Plus this song takes me back a few *cough* years. But be careful, after you've seen this once, the song will stick in your head for hours. You've been warned -- proceed with caution!

Carli from The Present Professor contacted me last week to say she liked my lip balm holders and wanted to feature them on her website. I was floored!!! So to celebrate, I'm giving away 3 of the handy little holders! Just leave a comment at The Present Professor for a chance to win! (The contest will continue until Wednesday evening 11/5).
** Thanks, Carli! You rock! **

It was nice to get away, and the boys really enjoyed the waves and sand. We found salt-water hermit crabs and one really large shell. The only sand dollars we found were still alive (they are sort of brown and fuzzy), so we admired them and left them behind.
But now, back to work...Some time back a friend of mine (Connie of ReFabulous) told me about a really cool promotion for eco-friendly mom and baby products called The Spotted Box. She thought my scrubbies and washcloths from The Lavender Lizard would fit right in. I thought it was a great idea, but I honestly worried about whether or not I would have time to make the samples.
Then just a couple of days later, Tory from The Spotted Box contacted me because she thought my flower motifs from The Lavender Ladybug would be a good fit for The Box! Well, I took that as a sign that I should definitely do this, so a couple of weeks ago, I sent Tory 60 samples of my flower and star motifs. And I'll get my own box now! Yay!

These are the small candy corn motifs I promised to list at The Lavender Ladybug. They turned out so cute! I even made a candy corn zipper pull for my second grader's backpack. (I'll have to remember to photograph it soon.)

It was on the back side of my favorite treat:
Are they serious?? These decadent chocolate delights have an expiration date?? Has anyone tested this by letting them sit around long enough to expire?? I know I haven't!
A word of warning: Though it seems like a terrific idea when you are doing it, eating 4 in quick succession will result in an tummyache. So your best bet is to stash these little babies away, and enjoy only one or two a day. I recommend an area high enough to keep your kiddos out. They won't appreciate the smooth, rich, chocolatey goodness....and tummyaches in kiddos are no fun at all.
(I would mention my latest crocheted creations now, but I'm too busy licking the chocolate off my fingers. And chocolate and yarn do not mix!)

To celebrate, some team members were paired up and held a Birthday Swap. My Swap partner was AngeeArt, who makes fab polymer clay items and painted rocks. She's quite talented, and I hope you visit her shop. She requested a crocheted collar from me, which although I had never made one before, I was so excited to create for her. Here's what I came up with:
I think it turned out nicely, and I feel inspired to make more, maybe other colors or even beaded. Thanks Angee, and enjoy!!
For my gift, I "ordered" my fave pizza -- pepperoni, mushrooms, and black olives. And this is what I received in the mail:
Looks good enough to eat, right??
Happy Birthday, Military Brats!

Several months later, she visited again and placed a rather large order for gifts! Awesome buyer!
Then today, she sent me a convo. She just started a blog about things she likes and she mentioned my shop today. She's just the best first customer ever!!!
So please visit her blog -- it's minimal reading and maximum cuteness! And her Etsy shop is full of Papery Goodness, like these notecards or this scrapbook. Thanks, Wendi!!
