Happy Birthday Crazy Elephant!

This month is The Crazy Elephant's 1 year birthday! It has been a great first year and I am so excited to see our boutique growing. We thought it was a perfect time to celebrate, so we have some fun specials coming your way, starting today.

Now through August 20th our new Artfire shop is 10% off! That is everything in the shop.
The most exciting deal is this...

If we hit 100 listings sold between artfire and etsy by our birthday, August 2oth, then every order made on our birthday will be shipped with a FREE copy of Colorsaurus (while supplies last).

If you aren't already, make sure to fan us on Facebook too. We now have our review section up and running and would love to hear everyone's rave reviews. And if you like us, share us! For every hundred facebook fans we get we do a special gift with purchase contest.

Happy Birthday Crazy Elephant! Here's to another wonderful year!

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.


Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
