little daisy chains

I didn't have to scour Etsy all night for this beautiful assortment of goodies. Nope. They all came from one beautiful shop. I was simply perusing fellow EtsyKids new listings when I stumbled upon the sweet & colorful assortment of hair accessories and jewelry at Daisy Chains. This EtsyKids & EtsyMom team member is one of my new all time favorites and I'm thinking you just might like her too. And I'm thinking you might like her even more when I tell you that she's offering free shipping for the next two days...

one smart cookie!

I'm all over this one. Brings kids into kitchen? Check. Encourages art? Check. Tastes yummy? Check, check & check. Oh yeah, I'll be buying marshmallows tomorrow. And to think, I went this long in life thinking they were *marshmellows*.

These images are courtesy of The Decorated Cookie and her lovely blog. There are complete, and very easy instructions on how to make your own marshmallow art there as well. Of course the art part is entirely up to you and your littles...

pretty little things

1.spool ornaments 2.rosy pony bands 3.table 4.birthday girl

This is seriously one of the cutest Etsy shops & Flickr accounts around. I blogged about here back here but I had no idea at the time that she had a little Lucy...named Matilda. How cute is that birthday girl? Go ahead. Click on all those links. But only if you adore fabulous pretty little things. And pull up a pretty little stool before you start clicking. 'Cause you'll want to stay a while...

wedding bells

I just had to share these photos of a darling little flower girl that wore a cream colored, custom zuzu girl handmade headband down the aisle today. She's not mine but she sure is cute! And the headband wouldn't look nearly as lovely if it weren't for the fancy party dress. Simply fabulous.

Thank you so much, Ms. Winter Daisy, for trusting zuzu girl be a part of this special day. And for sharing the photos with us. We are thrilled & honored.

If anyone else has any photos of your little princess (or prince!) in our designs please, do share...

dog days

1.puppy love 2.swirl collar 3.silhouette labels 4.L is for Lucy 5.floral collar sleeve bowl feeder 7.chocobloom collar 8. Lucy.

I am a dog owner. I am still not sure I'm actually dog lover because I don't necessarily love all dogs. (is that terribly odd?) But I am most definitely a lover of one particular dog. This is Lucy. She is trouble with a capital "L". She eats everything in sight, creates havoc among frolicking children, snores like a piglet and has the most troublesome case of flatulence we've ever encountered. But somehow we adore her anyway. I mean seriously, look at that face. How could you not?

Enjoy our Etsy dog days finds for tonight. We just know Lucy would!

We've just returned from a lovely vacation in Southern California. (You'll be able to read more about our trip here soon.) As you know, it's always nice to get away but oh so nice to get back home. Especially if your home is all a bloom like ours is. Summer in Northern California. Simply fabulous. I wish I could share the real thing with everyone but please enjoy some of our fabulous blooming finds on Etsy instead...'cause they are simply fabulous too...

confessions of a crafty slacker

Hi, my name is Kristi and it's been 10 days since my last zuzu girl blog post.

I've been busy. With life, and work, and children. Beautiful stuff. You can read more about what's been going on at home on my other blog *and the beat goes on...* which I have to admit, has not been neglected for ten days because there are Grandparents that depend on it, dammit!

Since I last left you...

I submitted...
my first article to the new EtsyKids online magazine. I am so proud to be partnering with one other EtsyKids member sharing responsibility for the home decor section. Our first issue will be live for all to see in August. The website is up but not yet live. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to share the name & link or not yet but you just might find it here by accident. You can bet I'll be screaming about it once we launch so stay tuned!

And now.
