Celebrating a one year Doodleversary

Today marks the one year anniversary of DoodleZ Designs.  Again, I'm so grateful to family and friends who were my first customers and helped me get started.  I've learned so much since last year.  This may not be the most profitable job I've ever had but it is, by far, the most gratifying.  And to top it off, I am totally blown away by how friendly, sweet and appreciative my customers have been.  Thank you for an outstanding first year!

Teacher Gift Idea

Akiko shared this idea for a small teacher gift that she found on Just a Girl.  Teachers say they go through gallons of hand sanitizer so you won't have to wonder if they'll use this one.  This is a really easy project to do at home.  Just make sure you have a product like Goo-gone to remove the sticky stuff left behind when you remove the sanitizer label.

Here are my attempts:

A New Look for Summer

Baby Girl and I made a spur-of-the-moment visit to Snip-its yesterday.  (See earlier post Party Spot - Snip-its.)   We had both had enough of the daily battles between Mommy with the hairbrush and the little girl with the long, beautiful but matted hair.

We were happy to learn that we could cut enough length to donate to charity.   Locks of Love states on their Web site that layered hair is acceptable if the longest layer is 10 inches. Locks of Love makes hairpieces for children who suffer from alopecia areata.  A common misperception is that the hair is used for cancer patients.  That is rarely true.  In fact, they state that they do not do so because they consider hair loss from chemotherapy a temporary condition.  There is a lot of controversy about Locks of Love and how much of the donated hair is actually used.  Another option we're considering is Pantene Beautiful Lengths.  Pantene has partnered with the American Cancer Society to give wigs to women with cancer.  They require only 8 inches.

"After":  A new summer do and no more hair brushing battles!

Other charities for kids with cancer are Wigs for Kids (requires 12 inches) and Wigs 4 Kids (requires 10 inches tip-to-tip).

Words from a Baby Brother... Was that a compliment?

"My brother's hair kinda looks like a wig." - Tyler


Natalie of Fun Retro put a treasury together that makes me wish I were a teacher.  No question, our teachers deserve much more than a week of appreciation.  But when is SAHM Appreciation Week?

Pirate's Quarters

Arrrrrrrrrrrre ye planning a pirate room?  Here are some favorites to inspire you.

Tuesday, April 13, 2010


WOW.  I'm getting a lot of requests for party packs this week and it just hit me... There are less than two months before school is out.  Summer babies are having their parties early or at least getting invitations out. If you'd like to see an inspiration board for a specific party theme, just ask!

Little dude, baby girl and I were near Stanford U. recently and discovered a new party place. Along with great haircuts - little dude got a great one - Snip-its offers parties that kids will never forget.  Choices include Glamour Party, Hollywood Party, Style Me and My Doll Party and the new Rock Star Party.

Owner Daniel Liberman could not have been more friendly and had a sincere passion for this place.  There are several Snip-its across the country but this is the only one in California.  See more in the video below.



Thank you, Sequins and Glitter, for including DoodleZ Designs sailor wall letters with your Etsy Treasury of nautical items.  Nice choices!
