Designing the 2016 MAPR calendar has truly been a highlight of our year and we are incredibly grateful to once again be a part of such a wonderful organization. Special thanks to Julie Hammer Jensen (this year’s calendar coordinator) and Brenna Shebel for coordinating orders and shipping! And thank you to everyone at MAPR for all they do for those squishy faces we love so much.

We cannot wait to entertain you with this year’s puggy performers… The show is about to begin!


Disney Instagram Selfies? #doyouwannatakeaselfie

I admit it. I have taken a selfie or two…hundred… ever since the invention of the front facing camera. (You know what they say, “behind every good selfie is approximately 37, nearly identical photos that just didn’t make the cut.”) Ever wonder what it would look like if your favorite Disney characters set up an Instagram account? Magical selfies for days… And that’s just what Italian artist Simona Bonafini brought to life in her “Selfie Fables” series.

Enjoy and have a magical day….

{Hot Off the Press} Get your bear hugs!

We can “bearly” contain our excitement about these little guys! It’s that lovetacular time of year again where hearts, pink, purple, and red flood the store aisles with sweet confections and yummy candyliciousness.  We puffy heart gummy bears in a huge way and wanted to make a DIY Valentine printable to honor these colorful little gummy guys and gals. (Party side note: Have you ever heard of Boozy Bears?! You have to check them out below… They will change your life.)    These little bears fit perfectly on small treat bags of the candy or goodie of your choice and make a fun, unique gift for your special Valentine.  Bear hugs are waiting for you here!

And if you ever want something absolutely fun and easy to make to bring to your next get together, check out this drunken gummy bear recipe! We love making these for parties and always have the best time experimenting with new flavors! Our favorite so far is Coconut rum… a la Rummy Bears!  Have a favorite flavor? Let us know, we’d love to try it!

Here’s wishing you a beary special Valentine’s Day!
