Help Reform CPSIA

You may have heard of the Consumer Product Safety Inspection Act, which was passed by Congress in August to protect consumers from unsafe products. Unfortunately, this act which is set to go into effect on February 10 is having very real and unintended consequences on small businesses and independent crafters, toymakers, and… well, a lot […]

Cereal Jar

This one’s a combination of two things I’ve already written about: cereal mixes and Montana jars. I just bought this jar at Target and filled with a variety of cereals and a mini scoop for quick morning scoopage. So easy – and I like how it looks on the counter too! $15.49 Montana jar at […]

Kids Konserve Waste-Free Lunch Kits

I saw a Kids Konserve lunch kit at La Grande Orange the other day, and loved the idea. Now I see they have two new designs – butterfly and caterpillar, that I find to be quite groovy. I’m still not sure I’d spring for the whole kit, but I like that they sell the pieces […]

Happy Day

A new day. A new president. Stephanie, the blogger who many of you supported through the silent auction, is healing and writing again at Nie Nie Dialogues. The Arizona Cardinals are headed to the Super Bowl (not so exciting to me, but very exciting to many I know). And I have a new little spot […]

Great source for inexpensive storage pails

These storage pails in a lazy susan are cute, right? They’re also $49 at Pottery Barn Kids. Now look at this set of pails in a cute little tray (comes in red and white too): The whole set is $6.29 at galvanizedpails.com, a new site I came across in a wondertime magazine feature on itty […]

happy-sacks!

I’ve seen other reusable alternatives to ziploc bags, but none as cute or practical-looking as these happy-sacks! These sacks were invented by a Massachusetts mom of three kids who packs over 500 lunches a year. They come in sandwich size or snack size, and are made from cotton fabric on the outside, with a PVC-free […]

Circus Birthday Party

We had my son’s 5th birthday party at our house yesterday, and… am I allowed to say that I think it was a blast? We invited his whole preschool class plus some other neighbors and friends, and I think we ended up having around 40 people there. I was inspired by a post on the […]

Super chic nail file

How cool is this nail file? You could whip this baby out anywhere and not be embarrassed about your public personal grooming, because it’s “a little functional piece of art”. And it’s natural stone – from the Pyrenees Mountains no less. It would scoff at the $1 file I just bought at the Body Shop. […]

Ice Cube Stick Trays

I know. It’s an ice cube tray. But I’m abnormally excited about it. I learned about these from a reader comment after I complained about having to melt down regular ice cubs to fit in the kids’ Sigg bottles. My mom found these trays at Bed Bath and Beyond last week, and gave me one. […]
