WIWT: Little Monster, plus, Etsy update!

Okay, I have not watched very much Yo Gabba Gabba at ALL, but I think I belong on the show, RIGHT?!

I picked up this comfy baggy monster sweater from Lazy Oaf when I was in London. It was kind of this rigmarole because apparently the U.S. and Spain are some of the few countries who still use swipe credit cards. Everyone else uses credit cards with little microchip thingies in them. So it was like none of the girls at the shop knew how to conduct the transaction with my stupid American swipe card!!! Thankfully, they worked it out!

The leggings were a gift from my buddy Marissa. I heart that they actually have room for a butt in them, and they don’t fall down! The polka dots are shiny metallic silver!

I still don’t know how I feel about me in baggy tops and leggings. It’s comfy, but I feel really sloppy and not really “me.” But jeans everyday are so boring, so I think I will still try out mixing it up a bit!

I also added a few new items to my Etsy shop. Pancake scarves, a strawberry scarf, and some super cute cupcake coffee cup cozies with new strawberry toppers! Sorry the update is so tiny, but we are hard at work building stock for Renegade Austin (May 21-22) and also Yummy You factory samples.

I know I don’t talk about it much, cuz I don’t really know how to approach it, but there has obviously been a little break in Yummy You news. We are re-grouping, learning from last year, and building an awesome and stronger team. Bigger things on the horizon!! Wait till you see what happens!! This is all a new experience for me, and it will take some time to iron out all the kinks, but I so appreciate everyone following along and supporting me on this adventure!

    I’ve got to admit, I’ve never actually seen that show….it looks a little creepy to me, though. Think I’ll stick with Blues Clues, haha 🙂 Steve rocks my socks!

    As far as Yummy You, new ventures always take time. You constantly have to regroup, redo, and rethink. Lucky for you, you’ve got a very loyal fanbase who will stick by you while you work out the kinks! You’ll figure all that stuff out- just don’t forget to enjoy it 🙂

    • Thanks for the uplifting words!!!!! I really appreciate it :). I have my fingers crossed for lots of great stuff in the future, but I’m so realistic about it all that right now it seems like all talk ;). hope hope hope!

        You are most welcome 🙂

        And I totally understand about your being “so realistic” about it….I tend to be one of those people that looks at things for what they actually are, too- I try to remain positive and upbeat, but objective at the same time 🙂

    Lol omg my daughter LOVEEEEESSSS Yo Gabba Gabba. Its the only kid show I can seem to tolerate, they have the best guest appearances. I believe the Ting Tings were on one episode. Brobi (sp?) scares the shit out of me though, the little green one.

    • Yeah it’s cool they get all the bands to go on there!!!

  • Alice


    Yo Gabba Gabba is amazing~ ♥

    Yay for the etsy update! Will there be more cake hair clips?

    • For now, no, but hopefully after Renegade Austin!

    I’ve never seen that show either! Altho I do know it’s popular among some celebrity mommy’s out there… I watch the cutesy ‘Octonauts’ show!

    Haha! That’s how it is when I go back to the states… the clerks are kinda like ‘uhhhh’ at first, with the chip. I didn’t get the whole ‘chip and pin’ thing when I first moved here… Not sure why America/Spain don’t just convert, if most other countries have it…?

    Yay for new stuff! Those pink cupcake cozies are sooo cute! Just the right pinky shades!

    And woohoo for Yummy You moving forward! I was not around for that batch of goodies, so I’m really looking forward to seeing what’s going to happen with it, design/product wise 🙂 Hope you can all have the process go as smoothly as possible… and of course, we’ll still be here to support you! You’re a genuine, one-of-a-kind person, who makes adorable stuff! If I had the resources and creativity, you’d have some competition, let me tell ya!

    • Tet, you’re the sweetest ever!!!! We’ve been mocking up a lot of new product, and if any of it actually turns into an actual real life object… I know you are gonna love it!

    DJ Lance has nothing on you!
