Some Fun Gifts–For Your Kids and Your Tree

Thursday, November 28th, 2013

We are about to enter Black Friday.  A day I could care less about. I hate shopping and on that day it takes it to a suicidal level. But some people like the chaos of it. Others, like me, would rather eat cat food than step foot in a store. So I order a lot of stuff online.

But no matter how you shop, I want to give a shout out to my best friend Suzy Ultman who has a line of products at Land Of Nod, Crate and Barrel, Etsy and Chronicle–all of which you can order online. Some of her stuff you can find in the stores as well.

It’s super fun, whimsical items/toys, creativitely designed and perfect for your Christmas tree and for your kids at Christmas.

Here are a few of her ornaments from Crate and Barrel. Click here to see the whole collection.


Her “Box World Adventures” was chosen by FamilyFun magazine as one of the “Most Creative Toys and Games of 2013.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She also has a Shrinky Dink Craft Kit and some Needlepoint Fun at Land of Nod.

Suzy and I met in 9th grade and have been through so much together over the years. She has been a single mom of 2 boys for the past 5 years, trying to build up her career and make a living as an illustrator. She has made extraordinary strides in the marketplace. Check out her entire collection at Etsy and all of her product line from Chronicle.

Here’s to a stay-at-home-Black -Friday!

Some Great Gifts for Kids by My Best Friend, Suzy Ultman

Saturday, October 5th, 2013

Okay, I’m biased because we’re talking about my best friend, Suzy. But I’m not the only one who thinks her stuff rocks. Apparently Parents does too. So here is a quick shout-out for her “Box World Adventures” which was chosen by FamilyFun magazine as one of the “Most Creative Toys and Games of 2013.

Holidays are just around the corner!

Love you, girl!

Here are some of the “worlds” you can create from her Box World Kit.  A cereal box becomes a jaunty British Double Decker bus, while a milk carton makes a perfect pagoda…you get the idea.

A Fia Doll! Who Would Have Thunk?

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

I’m so excited to announce there is a Fia doll… 

…inspired by my one and only, Fia!!

My best friend Suzy Ultman, is a graphic designer and illustrator. Land of Nod approached her with the idea after she did a line of bedding for them.  The doll is inspired by my real-life redhead, (although Fia’s hair is becoming more light brown over time). I’m so proud of you Suz, and am honored to have a Fia doll in the world.

Here’s the whole collection:

 For all your New Yorkers, there will be a Land Of Nod pop-up toy store in Soho this holiday season, featuring the Fia doll (and the others).

Suzy also did this counting book for Land of Nod. It was just released yesterday. Woo Hoo!
