Zid Zid Kids

July 12, 2006

Zid Zid Kids
I’ve written about Zid Zid Kids before, but I never noticed their cloud and birdie pillows or the adorable wall hangings with pockets for storing paper, crafty items, lotions and powder, etc. I had wall hangings like these when I was growing up, created by my mother and aunt, and I remember how much I liked (and used!) them.

Visit Zid Zid online to view their complete catalog. If you don’t have kids, you may still find yourself drawn towards some of their items for yourself. Don’t forget to bookmark them for gifting friends or for the perfect baby shower present.

My New Kikkerland Flip Clock!

July 12, 2006

My New Kikkerland Flip Clock!
I’m so excited, my Kikkerland Flip Clock arrive this week and I’m lovin’ it in my living room. It’s the greatest clock in the world (at least to me) because it looks like a little cutie robot. I found him for about $80 new on eBay, which seems to be the going rate for him everywhere online these days. Kikkerland sells a whole slew of cool stuff, but when I laid my eyes on the flip clock, I knew he and I would see a future together.

Introducing Hallmark Magazine!

July 12, 2006

Introducing Hallmark Magazine!
I was extremely flattered when I heard from Hallmark – they will give decor8 a mention in their premiere issue of the new Hallmark magazine, set to hit newsstands in early Fall. The magazine plans to speak to women about the true substance of our lives – family, friends, home and community. Features include (from website):

Inspire – The things tht make you feel, think, laugh. Ideas and impulses, fresh takes on tradition, new ways to celebrate seasons and milestones?all infused with humor and wisdom.

Renew – The take-care-of-yourself stuff. The place where we awaken our senses and trust our instincts. It’s where we remember that life isn’t about the quest to achieve someone else’s notion of “real” beauty. It’s about discovering our own.

Nest – The place where life happens. You’ll find inspiration for rooms that are beautiful because they surround us with the things we love. It’s about life for real, not for show.

Connect – The best kind of quality time. Ideas, inspiration and advice on how to stay close with the people you love?as a wife, mother, sister, friend.

Nourich – The taste of good times. Tips that will make gathering around the table the pleasure it’s supposed to be. With recipes that are simple, healthy, and most of all, delicious. And food that’s not just about the cooking, but about the eating and talking and laughing that go with it.

You can visit their website for more information or click here for a free complementary issue. I can’t wait to view this magazine, if it’s anything like the website, I’m sure it’s going to be a very refreshing read with a lovely layout.

Introducing Hallmark Magazine!
Did you see this great Hallmark project? It’s called the Family Vacation Garland. It’s easy to make and super cute. Just add photos, ribbon, rope, maps… Complete instructions are online if you’re interested in creating one.

[Note: This is not an official release from Hallmark magazine, but my personal notes combined with text from their website.]

coffee + cre8tive { july 12 '06 }
Forgive me readers, for I have been a bad girl today. I’m so sorry that I didn’t post sooner, I meant to, but I’ve been out since 7:00 a.m. and then, I had a client appointment that ran overtime so I’m just able to start blogging now. Since I need to run some errands tonight, I only have about an hour to blog, then I’m off again.

Oh, and don’t forget…TONIGHT IS PROJECT RUNWAY PEOPLE!

Don’t forget to tune in tonight and tomorrow, visit me here and we’ll dish about Project Runway together in an open thread… Sound good?

Without further blah blah, let me get to posting… Be back shortly!
