Secret Project #3 Revealed! + Life : Birthday Edition

I so excited to finally share today that Chicken Scratch'd Designs was a party of January's Happy Mommy Box!!! I made infinity scarves for 50 of the January boxes!!!

 While it definitly was excellent publicity, I have to be honest, I'm the most excited to have just had this opportunity to see my product in something so cool. Such a unique brand that caters to Mamas! That is all that really mattered to me. Just the experience. I never dreamed I would  make 50 scarves in a matter of two weeks before but I can now check that off my bucket list now! ;-) The most gratifying part was seeing mama's loving my scarves in their Instagram photos! 

As a customer of the Happy Mommy Box myself, I want to encourage you all to join the wait list. I have not been disappointed in any of my boxes. It's a great surprise to find on your doorstep each month..a wide variety of things for you and your kids! Finally, I want to thank Happy Mommy Box for allowing me the opportunity to be a part of the January box!!

We are still on the mend from all our sickies around here. Turns out that when I took Nugs and my dude to their 3 yr and 6 mo doctor appointments that Nugget had a double ear infection and the bird has a lil RSV. Unforotunly because of this we had to reschedule this past weekends big birthday and scale it back to just us and my parents. It was still super amazing and sista still had a big time turning 3… lucky lil girl gets to have second party now two weeks from now! What can be better than that right?? :-)

Her birthday theme is/was Bubble Guppies this year!! This is her favorite show ever ever ever. Like since she was 1 yr old. So naturally Nana and Poppy got her some fish to follow the theme! She LOOOOVES them!! :-)

Putting her fish in the tank! :-)

Saturday for lunch we did a little Cheesecake Factory action…She loves to go out to restaurants so she was ALL ABOUT THIS!


Here is to a new week..with a 3 year old and a 6 month old! WHAT??  


  1. Val...I LOVE LOVE LOVE that you were in the "Happy Mommy Box" with your signature infinity scarf! Too Amazing for words! And I really hope Nae & Jay feel 100% better ASAP!

  2. P.S. That giant bow in Janae's hair is crazy awesome!

  3. Cheers to you, you have many more tricks up you sleeve. Let's see what star you shine out next, I an a little jealous for the lovely boxes are for Mommy with children under seven. What about a Happy Nana box, we are charting new places and things happening since the chicks have flown the coop, We need to know we can still look and feel like fun, these little chicks have lots to teach us of things in their world,

    1. Thanks Mother Hen!!! We do need to figure out a happy nana box!! ;-)

  4. Way to go pumping out those scarves! Hope it generates a ton of business for you! Sorry about your sick kiddos, but gla they're on the mend!

  5. Congratulations on the Happy Mommy Box opportunity!! That is a great way to start off the new year!
