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.

Guess Who Was Featured in a Video About Pike Place Market????

It might be us. (hang in there until minute 1:28 to be sure)

Okay, okay. I'll ruin the surprise. IT IS US! A big thanks to the Market for including our new, little shop in their latest promotional video.

It was fun to make. We spent many hours outside in front of the shop waiting for the street to be quiet enough to film. Semi trucks, commuter traffic, puppies, loading and unloading -- we finally finished up indoors.

It's horrifying to hear your own voice played back to you.... but we'll try to get over it. EEEEeeeek!

Make and Takes Feature

The kind and decidedly beautiful Marie from Make and Takes paid our shop a little visit and wrote a blog post about it. We like her. Forever.

If you're looking for craft tutorials for kids or for home improvement projects, Make and Takes is the place. My favorites:
