etsy fresh: always take time to smell the swirlies :)


dear diary,
i am so happy about all our new spring goodies,  i do not even know where to begin! well, okay, maybe i should begin with the super cool new cards me and duk duk have just added to mom's etsy shop.  because guess what, we just added 5 new cards and 60 percent of them have 100 percent of my tushie on them! and this time,  mom even let us come up with our very own, way much more practical slogans on them.  u know, like this one, from our important reminders in life series. always take time to smell the swirlies. 



we even made a mooshy love card for that special someone in your life, because valentine's day should not be the only day u tell your loved one how much they smell.  and, our last new tushie card, is a smello card. i only wish we could have made it scratch and sniff, but i guess that is a project for future me and duk duk.

oh, and do not think we forgot about the other important holidays coming up.   i mean, we already offer a lovely st patrick's day card and four whole easter cards, but u know, everyone has a ton of moms and dads or people they think of as moms and dads,  and we thought, hey, let's also make and post our supercool new mother's day and father's day cards.  and so we did, which you can score along with all the other cards we mentioned by visiting  https://www.etsy.com/shop/kalyxcraftopia.


oooo! and, say maybe u r looking for a very special easter gift or well, u know, a teeny tiny treat or two or three hundred for yourself? well, sit back and enjoy the next thirty seconds because me and duk duk also finished our next super doot announcement.  the dootage will coming to our shop sometime in the late morning of this coming wednesday, march 1st. :)



hee hee, that's right.  finally a cool tiny glitter weenie for grownups,  that they can put on their desk or windowsill or anywhere a little sparkly swirly calming zen is desired.  me and duk duk like to shake and stare at ours up close so it feels like a kapoopiescope. and we could stare at it for hours.  which is probably why we did so poorly on our math test, come to think of it, but seeing as how mom does not know that yet, let's just keep that secret between u and me, okay?

anyhoo, we will be sharing more details on our glitter weenies, but if u like,  i should remind u that u can always purchase your spring and summer card needs now, and save on shipping by mentioning in the comments at checkout that u would like us to combine shipping with the swirly glitter weenies i just know u will score because we made like a ton of them. because every dollar saved now is a bog of gummy worms purchased later. :)

toodley-doo!

halo :)


I love filters and photo editing software as much as tiny chumley loves chunky chicken water, but it's especially gratifying when a picture turns out all on its own, with happy rays of sunlight and a glorious halo highlighting what it seems we all could use a little more of nowadays - a calming peace, a comforting warmth, and of course, a generous dollop of cuteness.


Speaking of cuteness, here in behind the scenes world, tiny chumley and I have been furiously hand finishing what feels like a million tiny pieces of top secret coolness this week and the good news is that the hardest part is probably over. I say probably because as with all our fanciful little weenie makeys there are always aspects of haven't done it before so who knows how long it will take, but, with any luck, we will finish up and announce a doot date soon so stay tuned! And be on the lookout for some very special new cards, some of which were very obviously designed by a certain little mischievous wolf and his best falcon friend. So much fun, so little time! Have a super weekend, friends! :)

where there's a wolf there's a way :)


hee hee, yeppies duk duk, i think this is exact the extra height we need to get to the uknowwhat at the uknowwhere. yessiree, this is what happens when a hungry wolf brings his mom a perfectly good pair of shoes for her to wear and she's all thanks but nopies and then she goes off leaving him high and dry without payment in full. i mean, seriously, who does that? but u know what they say, where there's a wolf there's a way. and with this extra height surely we can finally reach the snackie jar ourselves and finally we can become self-suff... duk? hey, duk duk, where'd u -

whoops. um, hello, mom. nothing to see here really. u look nice today :)

my smelly valentine :)

boy, duk duk, i sure am glad we looked thru the bag of valentine candies mom got us to pass out at school tomorrow.


i mean, there were only like..three, four, five - six. six acceptable messages in the entire bag! can u imagine the mess we would have gotten ourselves into? not to mention all the cooties we might have been exposed to.


hee hee, well, i guess u know what they say...

a wolf and falcon's work is never done :)

minimum cage


...poopabunga, THAT'S what cottonmouth is supposed to look like?? i mean, on tv i thought his nickname compared with his appearance was a already little preposterous and here, well here he just looks like he ate a bunch of cottton candy in a hurry and forgot to wipe his mouth. he doesn't have ferocious real fangs or a slithery body or really anything that merits the impressive name of our third most favorite snake in the world.... yeah duk duk, if this does not get better by the next page then we really need to..


hold the poop...what's this? "famous name prizes or cash the easy way. attention junior entrepreneurs of america. earn famous name prizes or cash simply by selling olympic brand greeting cards. fill out the slip, enclose two dollars and blah blah blah blah." omg, duk duk, look at all this stuff. i spy a tent, a dune buggy, scuba flippers, why there is even a race track set! look at all those awesome and supercool famous name prizes..just for selling greeting cards...just like..u and me..do. heeeeyyyyy...


um, mother, i think it is time we had a talk.... :)

brought 2 u by baxter & duk duk: tiny journals for big ideas

hee hee, okay okay, u got me, duk duk. but i cannot help it if they are wet.  it is the price a wolf must pay for digging in the back yard. and yes, mom thinks i need a nail job but let's not remind her, okay, dukkie who did u know what u know where but mom has not found out yet? anyhoo, i sure am glad auntie robin showed us how to do coptic book binding last week during her visit, dontchoo, duk duk?


i mean, the results speak for themselves really. and whoda thunk that the scraps mom let us use, and the old benjy thrifty store book mom let us cut up, and the papers from the scrap exchange, well, i mean whoda thunk that all that stuff would make the perfect size book for o, u know, tiny journaling, or for keeping secrets like our passwords, or well anything really.  plus u do not have to worry about mysterioso battery power drain like it still seems to be the case with our iphoneys.  yeah, that really stunk when my iphoney died before i could get that picture. i mean it had to be the biggest pile of - hang on i think i hear mom..


yes, mother, we are putting the last finishing touches on them now and i promise we will post them to etsy before we go to toyfriend cl-, i mean,  before we go out to the creek for our study group. okay, have fun at the grocery store and if u do not mind can u please pick up some puppy bites for lil pink puppy? i forgot to get it yesterday and lil pink puppy is almost out and u know how he gets if we feed him gummy worms.   bye bye, we love u too...

okay, where were we?


 











oh yes, i am so glad our new letter stamping kit came finally. because really, even when the pages of a book are blank, it still deserves a title, right? that way in case u r having a hard time coming up with the words inside, the title is always there to inspire. 















well, okey dokey, duk duk, time to work on our etsy posts! :)





(ps we only have three books this time so we will be posting them as random serendipity doots :) )

payment in full

I love that tiny chumley still brings me the random shoe and every other little thing he finds on the floor that he thinks might warrant a snackie.  And, here's a secret he's pretty much learned over the years, practically everything he finds and brings to me is fungible, though some of things he brings are worth better snackies than others. It's a system that works pretty well most days.  I haven't bent completely down to pick up a fallen receipt, a pen, or napkin in years, though my pile of mismatched socks has grown as they get brought to me one by one when he finds them, taking them to wherever I might be in the house, and I, of course, mindlessly leaving them up somewhere out of tiny wolf reach so he doesn't encounter them again.

Sometimes, we have to call a truce,  so a little wolf can take a nap by george or protect his lands, and so I can relieve myself of the concerns that he might hurt himself dragging something entirely too unwieldy my way.  And so our system is paused for a while, both of us knowing full well there will always something else for tiny chumley to find on the floor, that he can readily exchange for payment in full :)
