Lots of excitement here getting ready for our little bundle of metalicious to arrive. I'm in my last trimester so I'm working hard to stock up my best sellers so I can keep them in my shop while I'm on 'maternity leave.'

I also have a 3 week show coming up so I'm making lots of new things for it. SO much to do, and also getting in some time with my 4 1/2 year old who just gets funnier each day.

Oh, and we need to get a bathtub put in (don't ask) and a wardrobe built (for the metalicious headquarters storage unit). *sigh*

eep! So much good stuff happening, just wanted to share!

A simple postcard

The Creative Center had a benefit tonight to raise money to support their cause. They bring the Arts to people living with cancer. In preparation, they asked for 4 x 6 postcards created by artists to be donated to help raise money at the event.

Well, I have a hard time considering myself an artist. I think everyone is an artist, we all express it in different ways. But I wanted to help such a great cause, so I made my very own Metalicious version of a postcard. It's made from a sheet of copper that I hand-tooled.

I hope it helped! Click here to find out more about The Creative Center.

Clothes shopping!

Not for me silly. I'm 7 months prego and big as a house! For my 4 1/2 year old son. Whooo hoo!

For those of you who don't know, let me tell you that everything looks good on 4 1/2 year olds. Even feather boas and skinny leg jeans. But I digress...

Buying clothes for boys stinks. They will wear practically anything at this age ("except skirts." mine says, "those are for girls." hmmmm. who is planting these ideas in his little head??). The reason it stinks is because boys clothing stinks.

Unless you are way into sports and enjoy dressing your son like an inner city basketball team player. Your other choices are the uber-snobby-expensive lines of boys clothing that will make my kid look like he belongs to a prep school polo team. *shudder*

So you have your choice between making your kid look like a sports nut or making him look like a WASP.

There is really only one store that is more helpful in dressing your kid like a cool kid without the team logos or 100% cashmere. It's H&M. My metrosexual husband and I agree that most of the time they toe the line between cute (because lets face it 4 year olds are still cute) and cool.

So here are my picks for my nerdy-chic kid...

And if he was a baby rockstar...

Time to get out the door and get shopping!
