So soft so cute.. I always melt when I see a really cute,soft stuffed animal. Well that is just what I do when I see Douglas Cuddle Toys . I saw Douglas toys at the NYGS. There were so many new stuffed animals. I had so many x-mas gifts picked out and couldn't wait for these to hit out local toy store. My kids are big stuffed animal lovers. Every time we go on vacation My kids always a have to buy a stuffy.. That's what my husband and I call them. Douglas toys is a New England based company that has been around for over 30 years and has an amazing reputation for quality and customer service. Two things very hard to come by in this day and age. So after looking around their booth and taking a mental note of what I love ,I contacted the company after the show.. They have all the new couture dog breeds out.. Goldendoodles,Cockapoos, etc.. They are so stinking cute. Love them.. My kids couldn't get enough..They already started there wish list for x-mas...

I also loved the carry totes with the animal inside. Love the whole concept. Not only is it a carrier for your pet but your little princess can put her lip gloss,hair ties & pretend cell phone inside it.. Another Fabulous find, the quilted owl handbag another NEW and Fabulous product. Go check out there site. Start shopping for birthday presents and holiday gifts. It's never too early..

Kids..You will love Buddy Fruits! CLOSED!

Attention Parents this is sure to be a hit in your child's lunch box...I came across this company while searching for healthy all natural kids snacks for school.. I am always on the go between soccer practices and games.. I have three kids and all of them play soccer. I am always looking for portable healthy snacks. So I stumbled upon this company Buddy Fruits..I was happy to see an all natural fruit line that is portable and comes in resealable drink pouches.. I know what your thinking. Fruit that you drink? Yes. I felt the same way. So I contacted the company for a sample.. They sent me every flavor. Not only did I try it but my kids and husband as well. We loved it. My oldest daughter is 10 and type 1 diabetic. This is a great way for her to get a little boost when she's running around on the soccer Field. Her blood sugar always drops so it's a great way to boost her up naturally rather than use a glucose tablet.

This company is owned by a french family who moved to the United States because they had a passion for creating a product that is portable, Healthy and tastes really Yummy. They have created an assortment of flavors: Apple,Strawberry,Cinnamon,Banana,Multi Fruit..Remember to look beyond the fact your apple is in a pouch.. Think about not having to wash it,take the skin off,having sticky hands to wash or even finding somewhere to throw out the core.. The best part. If you don't finish it. Screw the top back on and stick it in the fridge or cooler.. You can't do that with a 1/2 eaten apple now can you? Try it for yourself.. Buddy Fruits is the way to have your fruit and drink it too..

I will start by saying I collect milk glass. I love it so much that it's coming out of my ears.. LOL I love anything cream or white.. I am a huge fan of the beach and white,creams, soft hues remind me of such a place.. I grew up in CT but spent every summer as a kid in Westhampton, Long Island. When I was small my mom and I would tag sale every Saturday and sometimes Sundays. I was hooked.. Of course at the time I was looking for Barbie's and she wanted antiques.. That's what I was surrounded by in my home growing up.. That was her passion.

My mom had such an eye for what she wanted and collected. I love that about her. She is very creative..Now being a mom myself she takes all her grandchildren and does crafts and decorates the house for x-mas with them.., A true joy that my kids get to do these things with her. I have looked at so many blogs and I am amazed at how creative and amazing these women are that I have come across. How they redo furniture etc.. I thought well I have done that,but that's not what my blog is about... So I thought why not tell you a little about myself so you really know who I am...I love to be surrounded by positive people. I love to laugh, I love my Family and friends. Especially my dearest friends Ben and Jerry.. Love those guys.. My Fav Mint chip...Love seafood and a must for me is a good Chardonnay,Cab and extra cold a lot of olives Dirty Martini...Fabulous.. A nice Friday or Sat treat...I get together with Friends for dinner club which I love.. Cooking is one of my passions. I am all about Organic.. I do like sweets.. I must say and McDonald's Fries... I know doesn't fit in to that category.. Oh Well! I try not to stress.. I hate the weight I feel on my shoulders.. So I talk myself thru it.. I love to help others.. I love to make people smile.. I love,Love the word love can't you tell LOL. No seriously.. I love to hear kids Giggle.. I always laugh. Oh I love pets.. Not a big fan of ones with long skinny tails.. The Rodent family doesn't do it for me..Do I cry?? Oh yeah baby.. I shed the tears.. My son started Kindergarten this year.. He is my last to go off to school. I sat in the parking Lot and balled.. The other moms must of thought I had lost it.. It was a sad day for me... But Look,I am now home typing away with not one interruption... Life if good right now...O.K. that's enough about me...

I may have e-mailed many of you to ask if I can write about you.. Every time I get a yes.. I am blessed for that, Thank You.. This being the reason for this post. I have been asked by a lot of people to give them some insight of who I am.. So This is why the big long post...

Fabulous Find HollieLollie

Well another Etsy Friend.. Love her Creations.. So fresh and fun
FABULOUS! Here is a little something about Clare and how she got started and where she wants to go..

Hi, my name is Clare and I live in Bridgend a small town in South Wales. I am mum to my two little tinkers Sam 7yrs and Hollie (Lollie) 3yrs. I love spending any free time experimenting with new crafts, watching Sam play rugby on a Sunday morning and settling down in front of the TV to watch a good DVD.

I make fun, colourful and unique hand crafted gifts. Each design is made using only the finest designer fabrics, materials and embellishments. Gifts include pretty glass and fabric magnets, stylish bookmarks, sweet hair accessories, bunting and beautiful mini magnetic clipboards. Each product is carefully designed to add a little splash of colour and brighten up any room. I work mainly with paper and fabric but hope to expand upon this soon.

I have always considered myself to be creative, loving anything to do with art and craft. In college I studied Art & Design alongside my teaching degree but after entering the world of employment found I had very little free time and spent many years not even picking up a paintbrush.

One year I went on a holiday to Florida and discovered and fell in love with scrapbooking which made me realise I needed to start using my creativity again. When I became a full time Mum I began experimenting with different crafts, found the Etsy website and here I am today thoroughly happy and fulfilled in what I’m doing.

At the moment I only sell online through websites:, & I have also very recently been accepted to sell on and am extremely pleased with the response I’m receiving so far. I have yet to sell through any craft fair venues but this is something I look forward to doing in the future.

I am mainly inspired by patterns and colour combinations I see everywhere in everyday life. I have a mini sketchbook/ notepad I take everywhere with me, where I keep all my ideas and inspirations.

My big plan is to get my own website up and running by this time next year and I also need to start concentrating on promoting Hollie Lollie outside of the crafting community. I have recently had a large delivery of beautiful designer fabrics and am looking forward to using them to expand upon my range of colourful bunting. I am also working on a range of clutch purses and accessories which I am very excited about at the moment.

HollieLollie is still very young as it was only started in April of this year, so I have been taking tips off other very helpful people for marketing. I have found invaluable advice through searching the many craft forums that are now available. I mainly promote through twitter, my blog and my facebook fan page, I'd recommend other crafters look into these marketing tools if they don't already use them as they do work.

I love photography and spend a lot of time uploading photos onto flickr where quite a few people have found me. Promotion particularly through the internet can be very time consuming but definitely worth it all in the long run. One day perhaps somebody else can do it for me!

Clare was so nice to offer a Giveaway for 2 hair accessories.. leave a comment and spread the love..Grab my button XO Good Luck!

Want me to spread a little LOVE?

Hello Small and Large Businesses.. Want me spread some love about you.. Tell me about yourself ,in the comment section. I want to know about your products,Blog,Tweets,FB... I am looking for women that want to be noticed.. We all need that in our life at one point or another.. So let me,Write about you,Tweet about you,FB about you... Thank you all for being Fabulous in Your own unique way... XOXO All about Finding The Good in Life!

Jesse Janes's another Fabulous Find!

Jodie Has a fun creative flair and I find her to be Fabulous.. Here is a little info about Jodi.

My name is Jodie, but everyone calls me Jesse… you, know, for ‘Jesse Jane’s.’ I’ve always lived in Maine, not far from the ocean and right now I’m just outside Portland. I have several wholesale accounts around the state as well as other parts of the country. In fact, a lot of my Scrabble Tile Pendants make their way around the world. I should probably get a world map and chart all the various countries my pendants have been shipped to. It would be fun to see.

I’ve been creating since I was about 10 years old when I started my first craft show business. I created a line of refrigerator magnets and I would make between $50 and $100 each weekend. It was big business for me! I’ve had some sort of craft business ever since.

Besides creating? I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend, watching BBC TV series (Doctor Who, Torchwood, Trial & Retribution, etc), reading Clive Cussler books and drinking coffee…. anytime of the day… I’m addicted!

Fabulous Interview with The Tip Junkie!

I had the privilege of interviewing, Laurie from Tip Junkie. I wanted her to be in the spotlight.. She does an amazing job at promoting women and their business. I wanted to see how and why she started her web sites.After our interview I must say.. I would love to have her live close by. I could see myself building a long friendship with her. She is full of life and I love that in a person.. Even though we live far apart on a map.. I will stay in touch and create a friendship with her regardless of how far we are..So here is our Interview in a nutshell Enjoy!

1.How many children do you have ,what ages are they? I have 3 boys: Davis (10), Dylan (8), and Drake (3). Yes, we had to try one more time for a girl. We got a Drake instead. Little Drake is on my lap as I’m typing this watching Ni Hao, Kai Lan.

2. Why did you start blogging? I had a website Executive Homemaker that I was having a hard time marketing and getting word-of-mouth promotion. I was at a girl’s night out and one of my friends had printed out a blog post and read it to all of us. It was fabulous! That week I signed up with Blogger for my personal blog. I found that as I was blog jogging all I wanted to do was blog about the amazing ideas I found. I felt like the world should know about them. One month later, I created Tip Junkie to do just that – give creative women a day in the spotlight by featuring their ideas and products.

3. What idea came to you, to create your sites? The sites now are actually a product of years of development and trying to fulfill the needs that I have along the way.

· Executive Homemaker was created because I hate reinventing the wheel. I realized that I had all of these really cool projects that have taken hours to make and felt that it was a shame that no one got to use them but me. On the flip side of that – it totally annoys me when I find a fabulous idea on the internet that someone created but there’s not a picture or file to download. Someone already took the time to create it – why should I have to duplicate it? Therefore, EH has over 300 files that I’ve made for my high functioning autistic son, birthday party games, and organizational worksheets. I’m still converting it over to a blog so I still have another 200 files to upload. Just like Tip Junkie, anyone can e-mail me their files and I’ll upload them and give them the credit they deserve.

· Tip Junkie was created to give women a day in the spotlight and feature creative ideas and Mom-prenuer products.

· The Tip Junkie Mom-preneur Shops were created because I have a huge passion for promoting women in business. Especially those women who make their own products but don’t know how to get the word out and market them. My mother is uber creative but couldn’t find a way (or venue) to sell her products. I wanted a directory where people could easily find these hidden handmade treasures and promote Mom-preneurs.

· The Executive Homemaker Mom Shops were created because the Tip Junkie Mom-prenuer shops got so full. I also found that Tip Junkie and Executive Homemaker have a different demographic and therefore the shops featured would be different. EH having its own set of Mom Shops would serve the women in business better and give another avenue for promotion.

· The Tip Junkie Giveaway Directory was created because so many bloggers were asking me to announce their giveaways. After a while, it was taking me 6 hours to do the giveaway post. I had back surgery in January and I just couldn’t keep it up any longer. However, I really wanted to help get the word out and help promote these women. Thus the TJ Giveaway Directory was born! It’s fully automated so you have full control over your giveaway announcement.

4.What is one of the most memorable accomplishment? Well, I haven’t had it yet. I’ll be speaking at SITScation in October in Vegas. I’m quite sure that will be very memorable. I can’t wait to meet other bloggers in real life.

5. How did you get involved with SITS and chic chic media? Again, this happened as a result of a need I had at the time. I had received two different e-mails from fellow bloggers who were going to start charging for sponsorships and wanted to know if I would like a free sponsorship to fill in their empty positions. Of course I said yes, and it got me thinking. I was planning on offering sponsor ads as well but not for about 6 more months. Therefore, it occurred to me that if we combined our stats and our efforts, we’ll sell more spots, give the sponsors great stats, and we won’t be competing with each other.

Cindy from Skip to My Lou and Kim from Today’s Creative Blog both signed on immediately. I felt like our stats still weren’t quite good enough (that sounds so silly considering what their stats are now) and we needed one more blog. The SITS girls were an obvious choice as they had a different demographic and have mad marketing skills.

Chic Chick Media has grown because the needs of our readers have grown. The main problem with sponsor advertising is that it’s too expensive for the mommy blogger with a small Etsy store. Therefore, we created the Visit Our Peeps widget that only costs $5.95 a month and it’s on over 300 blogs! It’s a text ad system to promote your blog/shop/site. You don’t even have to have a store, it’s a way to connect with other bloggers who share your same passions and get the word out on an entirely new demographic of women.

6. Do you have any regrets? Yes sometimes, when I’m on a girls night out and my friends are talking about the books they’ve been reading and the PTA meetings and volunteer things they’re doing; I get that little twinge of regret. I think I manage things pretty well, but these sites take up a lot of time. Sometimes, I feel like I should be using that time to volunteer or relax on my back porch reading a novel. I have brief moments of envy at the simplicity of my friend’s lives. They don’t have 150 e-mails a day waiting in their inbox. Although, I feel very blessed and have worked very hard to have the privilege of promoting women. It’s an honor.

7. What idea has someone presented to your site that you made yourself and loved? There are too many to list! I usually feature are the things I want to do at home. I’m naturally a total tip junkie so it fits my life perfectly.

· I love advents, so I’ve made a Halloween Advent and Summer Activity Advent (which I still haven’t blogged about)

· I completely blog-jacked this Indiana Jones Birthday party

· I organized my pantry with bins which I love and it still looks like that the system is so good

These are just to name a few.

8. One thing you wish you didn't put on your sites? I posted a picture of someone’s kiddo for a birthday party post and they were upset about it. They had every right to be and I felt terrible about it. Usually, I try to avoid pictures of kiddos all together (unless the author submitted it and gave me permission). However, I was in such a hurry and it was very late when I was doing my post. It was careless and irresponsible of me. I regret that for sure.

9. What advice could you give for women just starting to blog? Don’t compare yourself to other bloggers. You are completely unique and most definitely have something to add to this fabulous world of blogging. Blog about your passions and be consistent in posting. Develop honest and natural friendships with other bloggers. If your blog is about your life – be real and post about the ups and downs. It has been my experience that bloggers are the most unjudgemental and compassionate people. They’ll connect with you more if you’re not only blogging about the fabulous things in life.

10. What blogger do you admire? Hmm? There are so many! I still have my favorites that I fell in love with when I first started blogging 2 years ago like: Kelly and Mique and Marie and Kristy. There are my Chic Chick’s who are ultra fabulous: Cindy, Kim, Tiffany & Heather. Then there are the big timers like Design Mom, Jenn from Hostess with the Mostess. Social Media Guru’s like Alli and Jyl, Carissa and Amy. Again, I could go on and on.

11. What inspires you? . I love to create so, unique, cool, and easy projects. What keeps me driven? Promoting women who don’t know how (or are too uncomfortable) to market themselves.

12. What do you enjoy doing for yourself? I love to watch movies, snuggle with my man, complete a project, organize my home, play a game with my boys, and spend a day at the lake.

Heather, thank you so much for the interview. It was an honor to be asked! It’s always motivating to sit down and really put your thoughts and reasons for your passions in writing. It has rejuvenated my blogging passion and reminded me of why I love it so much. Hugs! Laurie

Don't you just love her.. Hugs back to you Laurie.. Thank You!

My Fabulous Thought for Today!

"WOW...I have really appreciated every aspect of my life thus far. I have had hard times losing my dad at 13 to finding the love of my life. I have truly grasped the concept of family and how amazing of a bond I have created with my husband and our three children.. Life is a true gift. I have chosen not to take it for granted. I love the smell of flowers and the warmth of the sun. I love the first snow fall of the season and the taste of fresh picked berries in the summer.
I look at life with a smile and take in every minute of everyday. I have been blessed to have three amazing kids. I am blessed for a strong mother and a loving husband. I wish everyone that has touched my life tons of love and happiness and to always smile and never dwell on the little things..
I think how funny it is that we as a society focus on reality T.V. (Yes I watch them) but I always remember to bring myself to the true reality..That it doesn't matter how much money you make or what car you drive or what label you wear. Take a step back and hold what is close to you. Embrace and love it.
I am fortunate with what I have. I love what I have and I ask for nothing more. I am smiling that I am Healthy,Happy and everyone in my life is the same... I pass this on to you :)"

Fabulous not so Fabulous!

MTV awards.. Oh my.. I must say very tasteless. I guess that's how it's supposed to be when they never show any videos. Well after arriving I saw all the Hills stars,Hilton Perez,Pink,Jade from America's next top model,P Diddy,Taylor swift so many.. Well after taking my seat. I was shocked to see the opening act.. Tribute to Michael Jackson. I felt out of all his accomplishments his tribute could have been more over the top. Madonna didn't blow me away with her speech either.. and Janet" Oh" Janet why couldn't she have said something? Not at all impressed..

So during Commercial.. and a lot goes on.. celebs or want to be celebs are all in hallways getting cocktails.. I must say.. the girls are so thin.. I had to ask myself if any of them eat? Sunken faces bone thin frames.. I am so Happy I enjoy life and eat food.. What an amazing gift LOL..So after returning to my seat.. The Taylor swift award Oh, classless Kanye West took away her moment. I felt so bad for her.. Standing there looking around like what do I do? Beyonce mortified by it all.. I knew at that moment.. My time there was going to be short lived. So Not a Fabulous Experience. :(

On the brighter side.. Dinner before hand. Bobby Flay.. What an amazing meal. My brother in law is friends with him and asked if we could eat at his restaurant " Bar Americain" on 152w 52nd street. Because getting a reservation during an award night and during Fashion week is impossible.. So he was nice to hook us up and get us in.. The Food is so delicious with a little fusion touch. The atmosphere is over the top ,large custom lighting and the antiqued pieced mirror along the bar is the soothing focal point to the restaurant. I can't say anything bad about the staff.. You never had a dirty dish in front of you and your water glass was never empty.. The hand baked bread basket was Delish not to mention my entree: Red snapper with plantain Chips and mango chutney so amazingly good..I highly recommend this restaurant a must visit.. Definitely a Fabulous Find in NYC.

So that's my night in a nutshell. All in all a great time. It's nice to be able to head into the city for dinner and a show..A Must in my future.

MTV Video awards

As I prepare to head to NYC.. I had to create the look I need for the event. I finally after 3 lattes and lunch found what I needed to look Fabulous For the MTV music awards tomm night. I love these types of shows. I never know who I am going to see or what to expect. I know the line up of performers are amazing and Janet Jackson will be performing a tribute to her brother. You are probably asking how does one get to go to a show like this.?? Well I owe it all to my Fabulous Brother in Law Rob.. He works for the Jonas Brothers and has been in the music biz for many years.. He has an amazing talent for creating stages,lighting special effects and getting his crew to perform their best. I am fortunate to be able to go to music shows..If any of you or your kids are fans of the Jonas brothers you can check out my Bro in law on their latest movie.. They do a whole section on him.. Pretty cool..

My kids are lucky to have met Demi,Jonas Brothers,Hanna Montana (Miley),Brittany Spears,Backstreet boys,Jordan Sparks,the whole high school musical crew.. oh so many.. They are lucky and very appreciative for having an uncle in the business.. I have my feelers out for signed Jonas and Demi swag so keep watching... I will take pics of the MTV event and fingers crossed get to meet pink... Have a Fabulous weekend.. XO Heather

Please read and purchase one of these amazing Necklaces.. I just ordered mine in silver with espresso linen.. Can't wait to get it.. Order yours
Today.. Make sure in comments you say Heather from The Fabulous Finds sent you.. XOXO

Hi Friends,Two years ago, ovarian cancer was not even on my radar.

I live in the Bay Area where we have one of the highest rates of breast cancer in the nation and I've lost girlfriends my age to the disease. Active, radiant, lively young women at whom I've smiled countless times across a sea of purple mats in downward dog. Women who might be alive today if breast cancer had just been on their radar.Ovarian cancer is the new breast cancer and I certainly don't mean that in a fashion sense. Like breast cancer was in the early 80's, ovarian cancer today is somewhat of a mystery to us all. We've heard of it, we know we don't want it, we know it's killing women every day...and yet most of us can't name a single symptom to be aware of. In other words, it flies under our radar.Action starts with awareness. How much DO you really know about ovarian cancer?

Signs and Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer
Abdominal pressure, bloating, or discomfort
Nausea, indigestion, or gas
Urinary frequency, constipation, or diarrhea
Unusual fatigue
Unexplained weight loss or gain
Shortness of breath
This year, one in 57 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
Spreading the word: women gather together at a Hera Climb for Life Event
Unlike the Pap smear for cervical cancer or the mammogram for breast cancer, there is no reliable early detection method for ovarian cancer. Consequently over 75 percent of women with ovarian cancer have already had it spread by the time it is diagnosed. But that can change...
This month, I raise a glass of something delicious to women and all of the men who love us. To our awareness and enduring good health...clink, clink!Thank you for your business and friendship.

Be well,

While walking the NY gift show I stumbled upon my childhood creation.. The Cahootie. Only it was colorful and had themes. Mine never had themes it was made from outlined paper with the edges still attached.. I was amazed and overjoyed because I could bring this amazing colorful creation home to my daughters and watch them interact with this modernized classic game.

Cahootie an experience of Fun,Learning and a way for families and tweens to connect with their friends. After talking with the owner Blythe ,who is a joy to talk with, by the way.

I am Finding tomm to be a Fabulous Day and I had to write about it. although my nest will finally be empty I have to reflect all the positive things life brings when my kids are home. The Morning smiles the pool parties and playing outside. It will be an adjustment to be in my home alone after 10 years of having at least one child home with me.. I am psyched not to play Hanna Montana or the Jonas Bros. I can't wait to play pink and 4 non blondes.. The best part is writing a review with out someone getting in an argument about something... So this my friend is a Fabulous Find.. Peace and quite for 8 hrs.. Believe me.. I love being a mom and I love my kids more than anything.. But as I enter the fall I am going to put myself first for the 8 hrs I have a day. I am going to put a smile on all of your faces as well... so Many Giveaways and write ups...I wish for all of you moms who's kids are going to school kiss them ,wish them a happy day.. tell them to be kind to others and always tell them you love them before they walk out the door. Then kick up your slippers and dance around the house....

Life's Too short.. Grab a latte or tea and call an old friend.. Catch up on what YOU love to do..Because we as women need to give ourselves a little me time... Thanks for being Fabulous...
