Creativity Takes Courage + Pinterest

-Quote from Henri Matisse.  Art by Green Girl.

We love, love, love this quote!  It's kind of a motto to live by.  Of course, some days we are more courageous than others.  That's just life.

We are busily working away on designs for Demdaco for next year (can't WAIT to show you what's up ahead for January and summer 2012!  It's gonna be on a whole. 'notha. level!)   Custom orders and all the kids home for summer vacay are also keeping us very busy!

Have you hopped on the Pinterest bandwagon yet?  Yeah, I know, I know, like we all NEED one more social media obsession.... :-)  We're slowly getting our feet wet, and if you're already a fan of it, we'd love to connect with you!  You can follow us at   *If you love the creativity quote above as much as we do, maybe you'll want to pin it!   And/or, if you have a favorite item from "This Thing Called Family," we'd love if you'd stick a pin in it too!  (Do people say that?)

If Your Name Is Sydney, Raise Your Hand....

Sparkler Dancing

Happy 4th of July everybody!  Nothing expresses our patriotism quite like this video that we made a few years ago.

See these girls, watch that scene, diggin' the dancing queens:

Bet you've never seen anything quite like that before!

Yes, I'm the one who doesn't like sparklers all that much.  I admit it.  But I think you'll all agree that my fellow Thing With Wingers more than make up for my lack of enthusiasm! I am a fun person....really! 

We hope your day is full of family time, good food, fireworks and fun!  Go ahead:  do a little dance when you light your sparklers!!! And if you're not up for sparkler dancing, we at least hope you're having the time of your life!
