A Few Good Books - by Abby

The Gruffalo is a book about a little mouse that tricks lots of animals. He is a smart little guy.

The Gruffalo's Child has a little gruffalo in it. He is so cute and I love him so much. The mouse scares him in this book and that is not nice. You could get these books at the library. They have lots of books at the library.

Favorite Reads of 2009

The Art of Racing in the Rain - a fast read that I could not put down.

Sarah's Key is a novel based on the 1942 Paris round up and deportation of thousands of Jewish families. As you can guess, this book is heart breaking but it is a part of that time that I knew nothing about.
What are some of your favorite reads from the past year?

My New Favorite Place to Shop

My friend Nicki recently started a children's clothing business and I love, love, love her stuff. I did a quick interview with her to learn a little more about her new venture.

Tell us about your business: Izzy Puddin specializes in custom children's clothing and embroidery. We carry A-Line dresses, 2-piece monogram sets, applique sets, bibs, burp clothes and more.

Where did the name Izzy Puddin come from? We used to call my daughter this when she was a baby.

How long have you been sewing? 6 years - my aunt gave me my grandmother's sewing machine and I basically taught myself how to sew. I have come a long way since I began. LOL

What price range do your items fall in? $12 - $57

Thanks Nicki! Head on over and check out the Izzy Pudding web site. One thing on my wish list right now is an applique shirt with the number 6 for Abby's next birthday. I also think I am going to have to order that cute little Valentine's 2 piece that is pictured on the cutie at the top of this page.
