I was invited along with a lot of other bloggers to the etnies hub for a tour of their Sole Technology Institute and to learn about the launch of the latest addition to the etnies brand… Grow with Me toddler shoes!
We walked on over to the Sole Technology Institute.
They brought in a skater kid who jumped down some huge stairs in a funny suit, landed on a special impact mat, while being recorded at all angles by computer cameras. All the information they compile gets… um… computed? Then someone smart makes better shoes.
Per the suggestion of my friend Marcy, I carry a few Eli’s Lids around for gifts…
During the Q & A the owner and passion behind etnies, Pierre Andre Seinzeruges, mentioned that he has a 14 month old son. So, I thought I would give him some Lids. Of course, I felt like a total idiot. It went way better than the Ralphie May incident. In fact, he seemed to like them. (Dear Pierre, If you steal my idea for practical/stylish Lids for infants that fit for up to 4 years I may or may not egg your building. Warmly, KN)
Why do I love this picture so much!?!?
Dear Folks at etnies,Thanks for an awesome day… even though Eli acted like a snot and Cora got boogers all over your nice office (probably infested with the flu… which we got the following week). Especially, thank you (Don, Brenda & Ashton) for staying after to chat about my lil’ ole’ business AND for the chance to shop it the company store. We love our new etnies (we needed them) and have sported them proudly since we got em’. (I even wore my new tee in my latest She’s Crafty Video!)Much Thanks,

Are you looking for something fun and Thanksgivingy to do tonight!?!
You’ve found it!
Check out what my alter ego She’s Crafty has been making:
Make these adorable Turkeys here… Spice up your Thanksgiving table with these awesome napkin rings here…
Or if you are feeling super silly, make your family into Indians Just like we did last year…You’ll need…
~Printed pictures of each family member
~Indian coloring sheets. Click here, here, here, here and here for the ones I used above.
~Crayons or markers
1. Print out pictures of your family and enough Indian bodies for everybody.
2. Cut out faces of family members and glue them on the bodies where the face should be. Note: It doesn’t have to be true to size… it’s funnier if the face is a bit bigger!
4. Glue picture onto cardboard
5. Cut out around body and face
5. Glue feathers to the top
6. To make them stand on their own glue a scrap of cardboard in a T shape on the back.
Found this craft last year here.
One of the great things about being a mom (and dad) is that you are the boss of your own house.
So, if you want to be super cool (and who doesn’t) you should make smores in the fireplace…
(or on the gas stove top if you don’t have a fireplace!)
Yesterday I met some people who love your children’s feet
MORE than you do!!
