New Arrivals: Needle Felting Kits from Hi Fiber

The amazing Moxie Lieberman from Hi Fiber dropped off some of her cute needle felting DIY craft kits the other day. You can make yourself an Octopus Friend, a Bunny Head Magnet, a terrified-looking Carrot Magnet or a Little Buddy bee-looking guy.

Needle felting is a really fun and pretty simple DIY craft. If you're looking for a place to start getting creative -- this is it. The kits come with everything you need: needle, a bit of Eco-Foam (so you don't stab yourself and stuff) and wool fiber.

Feeling a little Anti-Valentines Day?

You don't have to love Valentine's Day. You can hate it. It's okay. Whether tongue in cheek - or dead serious, there's no need to be all lovey-dovey.

At Ugly Baby and La Ru, we have the perfect gifts for Valentine's haters. And for under $15. A print of some cute animals fighting? Art to hang in your shower that tells the world your thoughts on marriage? Yes. Yes. Yes. Oh, yes.

Valentines Day: Love it or Hate it... It Still Happens

That one made-up holiday for people in love is coming up soon. Valentine's Day. That's the one.

You either shower each other with gifts and go out for an overpriced and crowded dinner with everyone else in the city who loves someone. Or maybe you detest the whole thing - relationship or not - and stay home to boycott the whole deal. Either way, we're on your side. Yes, we at Ugly Baby and La Ru are stradding the fence on this divisive issue.

To Valentines or not to Valentines. I guess that is the question.
