Well folks, my Chinese Take-Outs are officially in a store!  You can see them if you visit this adorable and fun gift shop in downtown Minneapolis – CorAzoN.  The owner has a little area dedicated to local MN craftspeople and artisans.

As far as news on the Etsy front… I need to get in gear and get some more inventory going for that little online shop too.  I have some fun new fabrics that I’m hoping to work with real soon!

Last night I had my second pottery class.  We learned to throw on the wheel.  Holy cow!  I have a new found respect for potters that use the wheel.  It’s really tough and something that our instructor says takes a ton of practice.  Just to get the clay “centered” is half the battle.  Mine turned out to look a bit like a chalice.  I think it was supposed to be more of a cylinder, … it was a design decision, yeah, that’s right…   We used to say that in college when designing patterns and clothing and something didn’t go quite as planned after it was sewn together… lots of “design decisions”.

 

A new song for the day Bob Dylan’s “Someday Baby”…enjoy

wow, i was just checking my stats out of the blue today and it’s already at 1,000 visits.  I seriously didn’t think anyone noticed.  🙂  I guess I was wrong.

Have a fabulous Memorial Day weekend and enjoy some nice weather already!!

that’s right

Go check them out in my Etsy shop

Happy Earth Day!!

It seems like we should be saying that everyday, right?!  My 6 year old asked me, “Mom, what’s Earth Day?” and I explained that it’s a day when we really think about our choices that we make about how to better take care of the earth.  Then I also said that it’s pretty silly to have an Earth Day because we should be thinking about our choices EVERY day – not just on a specific day.   So I guess it’s just best to lead by example.  This evening at my son’s ECFE (Early Childhood Family Education) class I learned a quick and easy way to make a low-toxic cleaner (Borax is mildly toxic) for just about anything.  

Here is the recipe for Alice’s Wonder Spray:  

  • 1 tsp 20 Mule Team Borax
  • 2 Tbsp Vinegar
  • 1 squirt of liquid dish soap
  • optional – a few drops of essential oil if you like fragrance
  • Add all ingredients into a 16 oz. spray bottle and fill the rest up with warm water!  

Easy, and you can even get the kids to help you clean!!  Or I’ve also read that vinegar and water is a great cleaner – also, baking soda too – if you want to avoid the Borax.

On another note, I subscribe to Google alerts and get messages in my email in-box whenever anyone searches or types in the name of my Etsy shop Luna Feliz.   Well, most of the time it’s nothing too exciting, but today I was pleasantly surprised to be featured on the Minnesota Materials blog – one that I’ve never seen before.  They were touting the Earth Day gig and ideas to help create a better world.  If you check out #3 on this site “Ditch Plastic Bags” – You will see that they featured my company as one of the Minnesota companies for re-useable Grocery Totes!  I was pleased that recognition was given to Minnesota companies trying to make a difference.  Because “green” can be beautiful!

Here are a few new things you’ll soon see in my Etsy shop .  Hopefully they will all be there by the end of the week.  These new items are fun and brightly colored for Spring/Summer!

I was just tagged by kellybot, one of my Etsy MN street teamers!  I guess that means I need to share 7 random facts about myself. Here goes:.

  1.  About every 3 years I grow out my hair to shoulder length and then chop it off into a shorty “do”.  Right now it’s a pixie. 🙂  I love change.
  2. I am learning a second language daily.  It all started when my oldest was born in 2001.
  3. I love to play basketball and started playing in the 4th grade.  Although, now I just play in my driveway or with my kids at the Y.
  4. I have made homemade bread for my family at least 2x’s a week for the past 2 years in a quest to eat mostly whole grains.
  5. I am an adult child of divorced parents.  They divorced when I was a junior in college after 29 years of marriage.
  6. I was an ‘extra’ in a movie with Ted Danson while studying abroad in London for college.  
  7. I was in a band for 8 months in 2004.  We sucked.
