I have spent a good portion of the nearly 2 years of The Crazy Elephant trying to figure out what I wanted it to be. Last night we finally decided. and this is what I have put together...

The Crazy Elephant where you will find handcrafted items to help make your family a little more green, designed by Adam and Michelle. We still have some non-green items in our shop as it isn't very green to just get rid of them, but we are moving forward with the idea of being green and keeping with our high standard of quality. With that you will notice a new look in our artfire shop ( and our etsy shop will be getting a new look in the following weeks as well. Having a craft based business is such a game of trial and error, but as time passes I feel so much more confident in what I am doing and I am able to make decisions for The Crazy Elephant so much more deliberately now. It is a good feeling to know that I can do my best for my customers, my family, and myself. Have a great day and make sure to do something big in your life today too!

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.

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.

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.
