Favorite Things

The Muppets! My household is in love with, and maybe a bit obsessed with The Muppets!


We weren't able to go and see the movie in the theater since a family of 5 would have cost a small fortune, so we bought it on Blu-Ray last week when it was released. Somehow my kids were unfamiliar with the Muppets. I LOVE Jim Henson, and my kids know The Fraggles (my personal favorite), The Dark Crystal, The Labyrinth, but the Muppets somehow got left out. The Muppet movie reminded the Mr and I of everything we loved as kids about The Muppet Show. The movie kept with the spirit and humor of the original Muppets, and it was like seeing long lost friends.



The Muppets was funny from beginning to end, and the songs were stuck in all of our heads, so the next reasonable thing to do was download the soundtrack! We have listened to it over, and over. We even bust out in to song out of nowhere! We are completely in love with The Muppets, and I'm so excited that my kids now have a love for the Muppets too!

Fidget for Purchase!

I got the go ahead to make my Fidget the Dancing Dog for purchase to the public! I'm so excited!

Fidget made her debut back in the end of October 2011, and the rights were being held by Dancing Dog Dyeworks until November 1st this year, so it was such a surprise to me when I got the go ahead today. I know dancing Dog Dyeworks are working on introducing some new yarn lines, and have a wait for more worsted weigh to come back in stock.

You can find Fidget the Dancing Dog on Ravelry!
