DESIGNER DUDS!

DON’T THROW ME OUT!

HAVE YOU EVER HAD A WEEK LIKE I HAD THIS WEEK? The kind of week, where the once beautiful clothes you sent your child to preschool in, aged prematurely? My son, Max, presented me with a week like this, this past week! We live in a warmer climate. It is almost shorts season. By almost, I […]

MOHAWK & CABBAGE PATCH KIDS!

CRAZY HAT DAY!

As a finale to Dr. Seuss’s Birthday Week Extravaganza, my kiddos needed “crazy hats” to wear. So, about a week ago my next question to myself was, “After ‘feather-covered Thing 1 & 2 wigs,’ what exactly COULD I do for a ‘crazy hat?!?’ I am a crafty supermom, but jeez, there was so little notice here, […]

CRAZY CHICKPEA!

DR SEUSS THING 1 & 2!

I DID IT! I made the CRAZIEST “knit & feathered” wigs, EVER…HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DR. SEUSS! I found out last Friday, that this coming week was Dr. Seuss’s Birthday Celebration Week at school. Like all the other parents that day, I arrived at the school to pick-up my kiddos up and was handed a paper, asking […]

NOM, NOM!
FINAL OUTCOME

THE MONSTER ATE IT!

A couple weeks ago, I was approached with a “mom first.”  Upon picking my toddlers up from their morning preschool hours, my son hands me his papers and he needs to bring a Valentine box for the Valentine’s Day Party. “Wow,” I thought, where should I take this one?!? Searching Pinterest as I do, when […]

I LOVE ILLUSTRATION!

I guess maybe it’s one of those innate characteristics that my genetics blessed upon me, but I have a weak spot for art of all kinds, especially illustration.  Doesn’t matter if it’s my own or someone else’s, famous or a random doodle by a child, made by modern computer or by traditional graphite, I JUST […]

SUPERCHICKPEA

WHO IS MAMA PEA?

Some people may ask when they see this site, “Who is “Mama Pea???”  I think a better question, is…..”WHAT DOES SHE LOOK LIKE?”  I think this sums me, up… MAMA CHICKPEA:  noun.  a variant of MAMA, MAMI, MOMMY, MOM, MA, MOMMA, and “teacher,” formed from superhero powers, and fueled on caffeine. MOTHER:  needs no explanation… […]

MINION FAMILY

GRU & HIS MINIONS

Everybody loves a minion, right?!  Well, WE DO! So, since budget is the name of the game, and Halloween costumes were my task, I set out for yet another awesome family costume idea.  This year, it HAD to be Despicable Me! I made the hats, goggles, Gru symbols, Gru’s nose & scarf, and even retro-fitted […]

WALL DECAL ART!

WALL DECAL ART!

Who says everyone can’t have a Picasso moment?!  MONKEY SEE, MONKEY DO?? RIGHT?  When I found out I was pregnant with my first, my son, Max, I really hated the idea of conforming to a “normal” nursery theme, but I felt challenged by my exhaustion, to have my “normal” Picasso moments of artistically crafty brilliance.
