Darling Gifts

What a fun surprise! Hopscotch Kids was featured in Design Mom's Gift Guide: Darling Things. (posted Thursday, December 10th)

I can't tell you how excited we are to be highlighted in Design Mom. I have been a HUGE fan for months and must get my Design Mom fix regularly. If you haven't been introduced to Design Mom, here's an early Holiday gift from me to you. I just know you will enjoy Gabrielle's sense of style and design.
Thank you Gabrielle for the early Christmas present!

Great stocking stuffers!

Hopscotch Kids made's Holiday Gift Guide 2009. How cool is that:) You can find us in the Stocking Stuffer gift ideas. Luv this blog - full of great ideas, great info and some really great products. Check it out!

I particularly liked this recommendation: Buy a real tree.

(Quick shout out to my Auntie Ann and Uncle Art who own Hester Creek Farms in Los Gatos, CA. They have owned and worked their Christmas tree farm since before I was born. If you live in the area surprise your family with a fun drive up to the farm and pick out a beautiful tree. And make sure to say "Hi" to them from me. )

Artificial trees are made from PVC, which is very hard to recycle and off-gases carcinogenic chemicals. Cutting down a tree for decoration may not seem earth friendly, but consider that well-managed tree farms are set up just for this purpose. For every tree harvested, 2 to 3 are planted in its place, and purchasing from a local tree farm helps support your local economy. To find eco-friendly tree farmers near you, check LocalHarvest or GreenPromise. For information on what it takes for a farm to be certified by The Coalition of Environmentally Conscious Growers, which ensures that growers are utilizing sustainable farming practices in the production of Christmas trees, visit CECG. For more information on real vs. fake trees, visit Pacific Northwest Christmas Tree Association and National Christmas Tree Association.

Hopscotch Kids TV Debut

Lisa on the set of Your Life A to Z

What a fun experience! Lisa and I had an amazing opportunity to showcase Hopscotch Kids Water Colors nail polish to the Arizona market. Lisa was absolutely adorable and the host Lisa Haffner, co-host Gayle Bass and the entire crew at KTVK TV3's "Your Life A to Z" were so nice to us. We couldn't have been too bad on air - they invited us to come back when we add more products to the Hopscotch Kids line. Where's Abby you ask...well she didn't want to miss out on her field trip to the World Wild Life Zoo! Can you blame her?!
