Download. Print. Cut.

It’s that easy.

Just check out the Fun Stuff page for a Toy-themed Ornament Garland and gift tags to help make your holiday more festive. Need gift suggestions? We’ve put together a gift guide to help you select the perfect gift within your budget.

You may notice that the garland and toy gift tags are in shades of blue and green. Why blue? When I was a kid, my mom decorated our tree with blue lights and frosted silvery-blue glass balls. It always felt dreamy and peaceful. So when it was time to create new Fun Stuff page for the Holidays, I naturally gravitated to using a blue palette.


- Deb

P.S. I've also included a set of Christmas/Winter gift tags.

PiNK tomaTINA is Here!

Vintage Couture with a South American Twist is excited to introduce PiNK tomaTina, a new girl's label from Tina Neumann, the talented Columbia-born designer. It's created by Tina's daughter, Veronica who is a textile designer, and so, much of the clothing is surface manipulated. Veronica tells us that the idea of this new toddler line is to create clothes that integrate more realistically with a little one's environment while always adding a drop of humor. PiNK tomaTina is for girls from ages 2 to 10.

Share Ur Luv ....With Us!

We have our winners! There were so many fab entries, we hated to have to choose and perhaps break someone's heart a little : (

So instead of just 3 winners, we chose these 4:

Yvonne (we need your e-mail address)

We'd like to give a special shout out to Spiralmg for going the extra mile and making us this video.

Many thanks, hugs & kisses to all who entered!

Dear Oliebabble Readers & Fans:

You know we love you dearly. You visit, you call, you shop, you send us photos of the kids. How could we not totally love you?

But what we're not so sure about is how much you love us! We're just insecure that way and need a little reassurance now and then.

So this Valentines Day maybe you could send us a little note in this blog post's comments section to let us know why and/or how much you love us? We'll choose our 3 most favorites and send each of the three writers a token of our love (in the form of a $25 gift certificate). Be sure to include your e-mail address, so we know how to contact you to award your prize. Comments must be submitted by 2/14/09 to be eligible.

A Free V-Day Gift for You!
As self-involved as we are here at, we do realize that Valentines Day is not all about us. It's about expressing love. So to help you express yours, our resident artist, the fab Deb Pilutti has created some printable V-Day cards. And they are totally free. Just click here to get em! And while you're at it why not pick up a gift for someone special. Here are some fun ideas!
