{Real Life} New bag for kiddo…

As you may remember, Sayer started pre-school last month & he’s growing before my very eyes- becoming more & more independent by the day. At school, they have hooks for their coats & bags- so we have been on the lookout for a cool bag that is a perfect fit. We are also officially putting away the old diaper bag that has been toting his treasures on his day trips to grandma’s house.

What you might find in his bag when he goes to his grandparent’s house is a cd, video, book, his gunks or a truck & some people, & a change of clothes (in case of an accident of the potty or mud puddle type). For school he usually has a change of clothes (& sometimes a cd or gunks) & totes home his art projects. It seemed like perfect timing when Jennifer of Ellie Bellie Kids had a little (product tester) bag giveaway. Sayer & I threw our names into the draw & luck was on our side. The bag arrived this week & Sayer has taken it both to his grandparent’s house & to school. It really is a wonderful size- fits everything just right without being too bulky. There is side elastic that was originally designed to hold a yoga mat, but for Sayer, it holds two slugs/gunks perfectly – while the 3rd fits in the bag  (his 3 slugs don’t ever get separated).
See how nicely his unique bag fits on his hook at pre-school? The robot bag has become a favorite & we both give it two thumbs up. It’s sturdy, modern, efficient, & cool! What more could you want in a bag? I’m sure that it will go on many adventures. 
Thanks Ellie Bellie Kids! I know Sayer really appreciated the opportunity to test out this bag. He particularly enjoys having a special spot for his gunk buddies to ride with him on his daily journey.

{Creative Family} The Theiss Family at Classic Play…



There are two things that are always on the top of my “important to me” list –  family & creativity.  I have a particular sense of pride concerning my little family of three & the creative life that we live. So, when Jennifer Cooper (designer & founder of Ellie Bellie Kids) contacted me about an interview for her Creative Family series on Classic Play, I was both touched & excited to participate. I love the idea of interviewing other artists & creative families- I find it inspirational. Not to mention Jennifer is a mom in a creative family herself & I have been a reader of Classic Play ever since my friend Chantale told me about it. The Theiss Family interview was posted on Wednesday & here is a quick peek…

Have a great weekend everyone!
