New Yummy You! item in the shop! Tako (Octopus) Scarf!

Posted on 2 April 2014 | 4:23 pm

SlideOctopus5I’m really honestly so excited to announce that we have a BRAND NEW scarf in the Yummy You! shop for all my sushi-lovers, beach-combers, and mermaid-dreamers!

We received so many requests to produce this Tako Scarf, and now it’s finally here! WOOHOO!

IMG_8369We had a whirlwind day of some super-fast ninja-style photoshooting with model Shannie Bee and photog/MUAH Crazy Spork I Am. Dance studio Dance Boulevard in San Jose was nice enough to let us invade one of their rooms for a little bit!

IMG_8506These ladies are so amazing. I just showed up with a suitcase full of stuff, and they did all the rest (okay, I did the driving, I helped!). At first we were going for a nautical/sailor theme, and then we also wanted to throw in a little mermaid magic. All the photos (to me) told the story of a mermaid dreaming of things she would do if she were human, like attending a human party, having a picnic on the grass, or learning how to dance.

I think we’ll be posting the full sets from these photos on the Yummy You! Facebook page throughout the week.

Until then, sea you at the mermaid picnic! RSVP ASAP at :)

Cut Out + Keep’s Secret Santa Craft Contest!

Posted on 6 December 2013 | 5:10 pm

One of my favorite craft sites, Cut Out + Keep, is having its Secret Santa Craft Contest again, and Yummy You! is sponsoring one of the secret prizes!

Screen shot 2013-12-06 at 2.27.47 AM


“The rules are simple - enter any Christmas craft, or gift you’ve made for a friend this year and you’ll be in with a chance of winning. Join Crafterella on Christmas morning to find out what’s inside each present. We’ll announce the prize-winners at the end of the month.”

I wrapped up the secret present and sent it to the Cut Out + Keep offices. I think it’s still flying it’s way over there, but when they receive it and post a photo, I’ll post a photo here, too! I’m a terrible gift-wrapper and am a huge believer in MORE IS MORE! Warning!!! ;)

Have you been DIY’ing a lot of your gifts this year? Confession: I haven’t DIY’d a single gift yet. Eep! It’s time for us to get started!
