Feedback from Mars
Topic: Crafty friends

 Its me! Mars, here!

 I arrived yesterday all the way from LA-- what a trip in the Fed Ex box - you can see me pre journey at my LA home base:) 
I am settling in nicely in my new home and had to pose for  few pics before my new mom, Amy finds a final display spot for me in Amyville headquarters.  I like my new home.  Amy made sure to have a little taste of LA-home waiting for me...Sprinkles cupcakes-- the new store opened in Scottsdale when Mr. Mark and Amy were in Hawaii.  Amy stood in line 20 minutes for these cupcakes.  I love cupcakes- especially the red velvet ones! 

Though I haven't seen the animals upclose (nor do I care too)- I peeked that this one (they call her coco chanel, I think) played in my fed ex box before Mr. Mark took it out to the recycling bin.- what savages.

until next time this Mars...signing out!

Kawaii Cuteness
Topic: Crafty friends

You know what it takes to get me out of my Blog ruttttttt?  KAWAII CUTENESS... I 've got a fever... and it can only be cured with KAWAII CUTENESS (imagine Christopher Walken saying that ala cowbell style)

I took a quick break from normal-cy to have uber-fun with Myra's (of my little mochi fame) new Kokeshi Doll Tutorial  Go Check it out at her shop!!  It is the most well written step by step tutorial...and you get to play with paper and clay :)  If you haven't checked out Myra's crafty-ness please sit back with some tea/coffee and look at her past creations on her blog, I am huge fan of all her creations-- especially the TEENY tiny crochet.

I made these two little cuties while watching a few episodes of my LOST season 3 dvd (yes I go back and REWATCH for more clues- and its on the big screen in the background)  It is still my favorite show!

Hey I know her!
Topic: Crafty friends

Actually I work with her!  Check out Shana in March's Cosmo Magazine! 
ShanaLogic is the only place amyville hangs her hat outside of the amyville town limits :)  I have been working with Shana 3 years this month, and thanks to her I am able to send the amyville love to the edges of the universe!

Here is the article scan for my digital scrap book taken from Cosmo:

Galaxy Girls Love...
Topic: Crafty friends

Thank you all for your heart felt emails and comments for Canella--- I love my blogging buddies! 

Speaking of blogging buddies, I have share where you can spend some of that holiday gift cash when you are browsing the web after Christmas Dinner on Tuesday-->

Check out Lauren's AWESOME Galaxy Girl line.  I am a HUGE HUGE HUGE fan- and I am LOVING my Pluto shirt.  You may know some of Lauren's other work...she is a creator/writer/storyboarder/animator  for Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, and her husdband is Craig McCracken-- widely known creator of the Power Puff Girls (imagine the CREATIVITY in that household!)  Lauren is an uber crafter, 80's loving pop culture girl after my own heart.

Check out what she sent me below (note its much larger, but scanned it in for effect!) (and what I sent her) for some craftiness-goodness fix.  See she is wearing the bracelet-- hehehe how cool is that!
