operation christmas child

  • Posted on October 30, 2012 at 1:59 pm

i’m taking a break from all things bjd today to pack shoe boxes for operation christmas child and just wanted to put in a plug for one of my favorite charities. occ is a great project where you pack a shoebox full of toys and goodies and they get sent to needy children all over the world. kids who otherwise would get nothing for christmas. the canadian link is here but there are collection centers all over the world. my kids have way more stuff than they could possibly use, but i can’t resist a really good bargain, so i shop year round for toys and stuff and then at this time of year we pack boxes to give to kids who don’t have much. for me it’s more meaningful than just writing a check. a win win situation in my book, and maybe something to keep in mind as you are starting your own holiday shopping 🙂

etsy store is open

i just posted my first listing on etsy :tapdances around the room.

introducing wisp


i have a long way to go to finish stocking it, but the first item is up so at least i have finally made a start, after all the delays and procrastination. i have 21 dress, 28 nap blankets and a whole pile of hats ready to go so decided to just get there and start listing even of all the pictures haven’t been taken. the weather isn’t cooperating today anyway so i’ll try to finish up the pictures of what i’ve got done over the next week. then i’ll be able to start on some new stuff with a clear conscience.

take time to relax

we’ve been working like mad the past few weeks trying to get stuff ready for an etsy store opening, it seems there is an endless amount of things to do!. tumnus reminded me today to take time to just relax and enjoy life

the boys run away…

today was the first of several photo days to try and get my etsy store up and running. the little girls were fairly cooperative, i think it helped that it was kind of like playing dress up for them, trying on lots of pretty dresses then twirling in front of the camera, but noah and tumnus ran away to look for boys to play with. “too many frills!” they exclaimed

noah and tumnus

tumnus is a lot less cooperative since he got his new curly wig and dropped the “mr” he now looks and acts much more like a little boy than a grown elf. noah who also got new curlier hair likes the change since it gives him a boy closer to his age, instead of just girls!
