I'm Back!

I haven't updated the blog in forever...between getting sick (twice!) and going home for Thanksgiving, life has been CRAZY!  I'm super excited for Christmas.  This season gives me a warm happy feeling that I look forward to all year.  When I was home, I shot our family picture for my parent's Christmas card...take a look!

Holiday Shopping

If you're in the Reno area this week, make sure you check out The Reno Sip n' Shop!  The Sip n' Shop is a seasonal boutique and charity event where over 30 local businesses come to give you an exclusive shopping experience.  Proceeds support The Ronald McDonald House.

The event is held at the Grove in Reno, and takes place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

My Lil' Monsters will make an appearance at the event in Pickled Tink's booth!  They have many different sizes and designs.

There is so much to be seen (and bought) at the event, so make sure to check it out.  You'll be supporting local businesses, and donating to a wonderful cause!

I <3 monsters!

Working at Anthropologie has been an amazing experience for me...not only because it's fun and I've met great people, but also because the store is sooooo inspiring.  Since the day I first stepped into one of their shops, I fell in love with everything about the company.  Now they've stepped it up a notch with something near and dear to my heart...MONSTERS!

This holiday season when you purchase a gift card at Anthro, it gets eaten by this little green monster.  His white teeth are a tag that pulls out for a place to write your name!

I honestly thought I couldn't love the store any more.  :D

ANOTHER New Monster!!!

Yep....another new monster to enjoy!

Meet Jefferson...I love him because he looks so happy. :D

This is what his tag says:

"Hi, I’m Jefferson. I love to eat anything, which is why my mouth is so big. If you feed me, I’ll be your friend forever. I am pre-washed and can be washed and dried normally. Just remember to turn me inside out first. The more you use me, the cuter I get!"

Check Jefferson out here:

A New Monster!

A new monster has been added to my shop!

His name is James, and he has three eyes and lots of teeth!  Here are some pictures of my adorable nephew, Blake, modeling:

Here's Jame's profile:

"Hi, I’m James. Don’t worry, I won’t bite you. I’ll watch over you with my extra eye and bite any one who isn’t nice!"

Check James out here:

I spent some of last week at Disneyland.  Everytime we go together, my brother always insists we buy hats. :D
 Here's the one he chose for me:

It had goofy ears hanging down, with gold hoop earrings on them. :D He had a Peter Pan hat on.

Dress your lil' monster in a Lil' Monster for Halloween!

We have orange monsters if you're feeling especially festive, but any monster would be scary AND cute for Halloween! They are comfortable, and can easily be worn under a sweater or jacket. Pick one of ours, or help design your own...there are so many options to fit your lil' one's personality!

Not to brag, but...

...I am forunate to have an extremely talented mother who can make just about anything she decides.  :D  She makes plates, cards and furniture, but one of my favorite things she creates is birdhouses. Each birdhouse has its own unique look and personality!

All of her birdhouses can be found at Pickled Tink Studio in Reno, NV. Check them out at
