Shell Game

As a kid, decorating Easter eggs brought out your inner Monet-in-training. You wielded the wax crayon and Paas kit like a pro, turning out multi-hued eggs at every dip.

So you’d be, um, egg-static to find one of Volcano artist Dania Zempel’s eggshell artworks in your basket this Sunday.

With large-sized goose, emu and ostrich eggs as her canvas, Zempel creates intricately filigreed designs that deserve display case treatment. Each shell is drained and bleached before Zempel gets to work with a high-power dentist’s drill. She’ll etch intricate patterns, or cut out lacy... Read more »

Photo Opportunity

A picture can spark a memory from the deepest corner of your mind. Too bad all your photos are stuffed in the deep, dusty corners of your hallway closet.

Take the first step toward walking down memory lane by calling Lisa Detol, a super-organized photo album expert who can swoop in and turn all those boxes of photos and mementos into coffee-table worthy albums.

Whether you have a shoebox full of old photos, or a laptop filled with jpegs, Detol can transform your unorganized heap into a traditional-style or digitally printed photo album or scrapbook. If you’re a DIY type, she can... Read more »

Word to the Mothers

You consider your weekly dose of Us Weekly and InTouch a great real-life reality check – who doesn’t feel better after reading Worst Bikini Bodies and Stars Without Makeup?

But you know those Baby Bump Joy stories –  and their sequels, Bikini Body 5 Weeks After Baby –  are as unreliable as Brangelina breakup rumors.

For the real gossip on motherhood, you’ve gotta go to the ‘net. Blogger Heather Armstrong, author of the hugely popular personal blog Dooce, tells all in her new book “It Sucked And Then I... Read more »

A Brief Encounter 

I see London, I see France…

It was an embarrassing taunt in the schoolyard. But you’d be just as ashamed if anyone saw the boring beige undies you’re sporting these days.

Unless you’re wearing lingerie from local girl Lornnie Louie’s collection. A Kaiser grad who’s designed for Calvin Klein in New York, Louie’s collection of silky, feminine intimates has only been available in New York and LA – until now.

Tonight,... Read more »

Concealed Carry

Somewhere between Junior’s 3 a.m. feeding and changing your shirt after the fourth spit-up incident of the day, your plans to hit the gym went bye-bye. Who wants to be seen in public with a six-month belly, six weeks postpartum, anyway?

Instead, get some endorphins without the public display of your midsection by strapping your little one into the Maui-made, mom-designed Ergo baby carrier.

It can be worn on the front, back or side, so no one can see your soft underbelly. (That’s for your mother-in-law to expose.)

While you hike off the bulge, Ergo protects your... Read more »
