Valentine's Day T-shirts and Gifts

Another holiday is close at hand, that being Valentine's Day. For some it is romantic and special, for others it is a holiday to be scorned. For me, it's a holiday to reflect on love, not necessarily romantic love, but love in general, and I am blessed to be loved. If you follow my blog you know that I often speak of my little sunshines, my grandkids. My grandson who is five loves making valentine decorations out of heart shaped doilies, stickers, glitter, and glue. He looks forward to shopping for Valentines to reflect himself, printing his name ever so carefully on all the special valentines to his preschool friends. And like most kids, I'm sure he is looking forward to eating some candy on that day! As for my granddaughter, she is only one and so it will be interesting to see what she thinks of it. At Union Eight you can find Valentine's Day T-shirts for kids and babies including first Valentine's Day, funny kid's Valentine's Day T-shirts, and Valentine's Day T-shirts and gifts for grandmas, grandpas, moms and dads, aunts, uncles, and every other family member!

Some new kid stuff!

It's been a while since I last posted. I've been hibernating! The temperature here right now is a frigid minus 4 degrees and it's barely dark out yet so I'm sure it'll be getting much colder. I haven't been outside for days except to empty the trash, and I don't miss it. Until it warms up I'm cozy right where I am. Although I must admit that I am starting to pine for some adult conversation that is not via the phone or online.
My grandson spent the night here a couple nights ago. We had fun, playing Mickey Mouse yahtzee, watched a Scooby Doo movie together, played Scooby Doo which was basically lots of blocks and stuff scooby toys enacting the movie we had just watched, and we read a few books together. In the closet. Where he slept. Yes, that's right, he slept in the closet. He's just a little guy yet, just turned five years old, so I think the idea of sleeping here in a bedroom by himself was a bit much for him. He suggested he sleep in the closet, sort of like a camp, a lion's den maybe. So we moved everything out of the closet floor area (thankfully I don't own a lot of clutter!) and we spread out soft blankets on the carpeted floor, got him a pillow, blankets for covering up, a nightlight close by, and a cup of water in case he got thirsty during the night. I read him some books and he drifted off into slumberland faster than you can say "goodnight, love you!". For some reason he sleeps very well here, better than he does at home. I'm not sure why...maybe he can't see the light of day when in the closet. LOL
In case you haven't guessed, I love kids, and I love their creativity and imaginations. They amuse me. They surprise me. They make me laugh, and most of all they make my heart smile. My grandkids are my sunshine. When I design for Toddler's Place, I usually have them in mind, wondering if what I'm designing is something they would like, relate to, just as we relate to what we wear as adults.
I added quite a lot of designs to my Toddler's Place store in the last day. Check out some of the new things for kids, hope you find something you like!

Our Hanging in There T-shirts, hoodies, and other items are so cute with a little opossum hanging upside down by his tail! Kids who love woodland animals will think this little guy is adorable!

Odds and Ends

My thoughts are scattered today, remembering the holidays and various special moments, having trouble concentrating on being back at work and having to discipline myself into not vegging out in front of the TV. Yes, for someone who rarely watches television I somehow turned into a bit of a couch potato during the holiday season, allowing myself a lot of rest and relaxation and too many holiday treats to go along with watching cheesey Christmas movies late into the night. It's a good thing I gave away all the holiday baking I did because I think I would have enjoyed it way too much. A dear friend did send me a cheese package that had some delicious little tortes and cakes and I do confess to having eaten most of them myself. Thank goodness they are gone!
And so today it is back to work for me, forcing myself to get some new designs up and get back to my blogging, google feeds, twittering, and everything else that goes along with being an online storekeeper, entrepreneur, T-shirt designer, affiliate marketer.
While visions of my grandchildren's happy faces float around in my mind, I am busy uploading new Valentine's Day designs to my Valentine's Day gallery. I am designing with them in mind, thinking what they'd like to wear, what they'd look cute in. It's always so amazing to me how quickly time flies from one holiday to the next. One moment it seems to be Halloween and now here it is in a flash of what feels like a few days but in reality is a few months and soon it will be Valentine's Day.
Take a look at some of the new designs just added to my Valentine's Day T-shirts and Gifts gallery. Hope you have a smiling little face in your life who will love them as much as I hope my grandkids will.
