Sticking Around

I know everyone who has kids has a LOT of artwork. But at From Art to Zebras, we have MORE than a lot. I don't like to tape everything up on the walls, and I can't, nor can I afford to, have everything framed. So my idea was to have a few pieces that can be rotated easily without damage to the artwork or the walls. So here is what I came up with.

Not the best picture, but it gives you the jest of it. I just took sheets of metal and predrilled holes about an inch in around the edges. We used drywall screws to attach to the wall. Just add magnets and artwork and wah-lah, instant framing! Of course, I have to add my funky touch, so i will be decorating some magnets. You could paint or wallpaper the metal, but I like the industrial look of it and it won't compete with the artwork displayed on it.

Oh, Monkey Farts!

Heehee! We just got a new fragrance in for our Spa Bar, Monkey Farts. I know it sounds gross, you know the kids will love it, but it really smells yummy. It has Banana, Grapefruit, Strawberry, Kiwi, Bubble Gum & Vanilla fragrance oils in it. It is definitely a youthful fragrance. We put some Monkey Farts hand soap in the restrooms and the kids (and studio assistants) come out saying, "It smells like monkey farts in there!" I know I am a little off, but it gives me a chuckle (and I know the kids used it).

Monkey Farts is available in the Bath/Shower Gel, Body Lotion and Alcohol-Free Body Splash. Mix and match with other fragrances in 8oz. bottle for $9 each or 2 for $12, or 4oz. bottle for $6 each or 2 for $10.

Parent's Night Out Special!

We have been swamped in a sea of paperwork for taxes, blah! I feel like a child being tortured by an over extended time out! I am seeing the light though. So I thought I would post about next week's Parent's Night Out before I sink again.

Parent's Night Out will be Friday, October 24th, from 6-9pm. As always, it will include pizza, snacks , movies, crafts and activities. The special is....(drum roll here)...Register by this Friday, October 17th and the fee will be $25 for one or $20 each for more, so bring friends and siblings. Just remember, they must be potty trained. Call, email or stop in to register. You must prepay by the 17th to get this price. Start planning a fantastic night out now!
