opportunity knocks

The Knock-Knock Factory opens this Friday!

You have no idea how thrilled I am for this new venture. Friday is the first official day of the shop and I already have 3 orders via Etsy and 4 private orders. Wassup?!

I have been wanting to expand my work to something more "product" oriented. If you are wondering what the shop is about I invite you to swing by and take a look for yourself. 

I will focus on mostly custom work and  OOAK  "one of a kind", ready to ship (as time allows for me to create). That is the plan for now at least.

If you are asking  "why this?"- Well, I have always done welcome pieces for my parties and because of the great response I received for THIS  last year:

It seemed like the perfect "next step".

cute right?!!!!


On a side note..... Little Shindigs (event planning) is going on a bit of a hiatus. Just for a short while.
I want to give The Knock-Knock Factory and CPN a little more Natalie time and I HAVE to start squeezing in some sleep too!

The blog will remain "little shindigs". Yes, the same great wit and quirky style with the sporadic blog entries that you have so sweetly become accustom to.

Gotta  keep it REAL folks. I love the this blog, the fab party industry and creative peeps I get to rub virtual elbows with and most of all YOU, for reading this random party blog. I do think  it's about to get more interesting though....hope you will stick around to see it. Ciao Players:)

I like ME

I happen to like me. Do you?

not ME...Do you like YOU?
You don't have to like me...because I already like me and that's enough for me.

I just want you to like YOU.
...and not because I like you. That is far from a good reason.

I guess, what I am trying to say is.....You really should like yourself, it's kind of important.

Have a good Friday.

Pin the tail {Throwback Thursday}

Re-posted...from sometime "back in the day"

Yes, it's a donkey. I couldn't resist. This is the bulletin board for my work space. I know it is little wacky but I think that is why I like it so much. She was a dollar store find. All she needed was some pretty ribbons and accessories. I am now in search of that old party game "pin the nose on the clown" maybe I can turn it into a calender?

Part Salvadorean

Not me. My kids. When I came across this party. My heart just melted AND I got the biggest craving for fried plantains. I grew up on them, can never say no to them. They are my little fried heaven AND high in potassium. But I digress.

Beyond adorable. Creative. I'm talking handmade goodness. I was completely SMITTEN with this cutey of a party and felt compeled to share. I figure it was new to me so it may be new to you?
It is after all, a small world after all:)
(sorry, couldnt resist)

cue music!
There is just one moon,

And one golden sun.

And a smile means,

Friendship to every one.

Though the mountains divide,

And the oceans are wide,

It's a small world after all.

~Everybody now!~
It's a small world after all.

It's a small world after all.

It's a small world after all.

It's a small, small world.
