Cathy and I have been selling cards and things at the local craft fairs around town.  At the Dunbar show, a lady walked up to our table and gave us a business card.  She was one of the owners from the “Room for 2 Maternity & Baby” store on Commercial Drive and was interested in perhaps selling some of our baby cards in her shop.

So after revising our samples slightly, we set up an appointment and met with Lillian and her daughter Lorena.  They purchased an assortment of cards from the both of us, and are now currently selling them in-store!  Yay!

So if you happen to be wandering down Commercial Drive with a coffee in-hand and looking for the perfect baby shower gift (or maybe something for yourself and the baby), they have a ton of yummy stuff there.  I’ve been in there many times when my girls were babies and the staff there are very knowledgeable.  They will even let you test your baby out in the slings/backpacks and walk around the store to make sure it’s a good fit.  (I actually bought a small pile of mini Robert Munsch books there that will be perfect as stocking stuffers and then to throw into my purse for those times the kids need a distraction when we’re out).  The prices are good (though you won’t see Wal-Mart type prices there) but you’ve got to remember that quality and expertise are needed when it comes to your babies!

Here are some photos of the cards that are currently selling in-store.

Ori, my youngest one, keeps talking about how grandma is getting her a chickie-wah-wah.  Of course, we have no clue of what she is trying to tell us.  After numerous attempts, Bel finally says to us “it’s a Chihuahua”! (I really am not sure how siblings can understand each other so perfectly when two adults can’t make heads or tails out of some of their words…sigh).

Hmmmm…hubby goes to call his mom, and yes, they are getting her a dog but it’s going to stay at their house (whew!).

So, Ori decides to name her dog “Ariel Cherry Rainbow Mommy Daddy Bel and Ori” — quite the mouthful…though if you were to only take the first 3 names, you would have a stripper name…LOL…


Oh course, now Bel is wondering why Ori has a dog and she doesn’t.  So she’s asked grandma and grandpa for a white chihuahua.  They said of course, and have told her that they have ordered one but have to wait until they get the phone call to come pick it up.   Hmmmm….so I went and asked them if they were seriously buying a second dog, they said “of course not” but they’ll just keep putting Bel off by saying that the breeders haven’t called yet.   SIGH…

Okay, I’ve been terribly lacking in terms of blogging…unfortunately real life seems to interfere A LOT!  Just wanted to post a few things that we’ve been doing..

Here’s the family picking pumpkins for Halloween…we got a tad bit carried away and came home with 7 pumpkins plus 2 mini pumpkin-like gourds.  What were we thinking?  LOL!

Here are our pumpkins all carved up and lit up.  Though I think we were crazy to get that many pumpkins, we may have to do it again next year.  The little trick or treaters just loved them (and the parents too), so I guess it was worth the hours it took to clean and carve them.081031-halloween-pumpkins

Yay!  I have the next three weeks off work and I plan to do very little!  LOL!  I have this entire week off once I get the kiddies to school. I plan to organize my scraproom, actually scrapbook and go out for coffee with my friends.  I figure I deserve a little R&R after this stressful semester!  Luckily, hubby agrees that I should relax and have fun this week and disregard the housework — LOL!  So, the house may not be visitor-friendly should you come by to visit, but at least I won’t be grouchy!
