The 5 best words to say to your child

We always have a whirlwind summer. We keep up with the busy-ness of business, but we also go-go-go as a family - hiking, camping, going to the lake, road trips, day trips, sports activities, festivals, bbq's, bon fires, time with friends, long morning walks and big breakfasts on the patio. That all sums up our last few months; good old family time doing active things together taking it slow, but fast, if that makes sense? Slow as in we enjoy the moments, fast as in we don't really stop. 

It's our 11th Birthday Month! Check out our upcoming weekly offers for the month of June!

11 years. I can't believe it. 11 years, we have been able to do what we love. 11 years of raising our two kids; running our little business that completely and solely supports our family. We are extremely thankful to be able to do what we do, and we owe it to all of our loyal customers over the past 11 years, and new ones emerging every week. We have customers who have regularly bought from us since our very first year.

Mally Designs 2016 Spring Shows!

2016 Spring ShowsYou have no idea how happy we are to be heading into Spring! The temperature is rising, the cherry blossoms are blooming here on the west coast, and perhaps best of all - sandal season is upon us! We love making our sandal moccasins, and we are busy in the studio stocking up and filling orders as I type this!

Southwest Beef Sprouted Rice & Quinoa that my husband can't get enough of!

This is a pretty fast, super healthy, crazy easy recipe that my husband claims he could never get enough of. My kids loved it too and wanted seconds and thirds! Ron has been asking me when I will make it again, so tonight is the night! Since it's been on my mind, I thought I'd share it with you. If your taste buds are anything like ours, your whole family will absolutely love it!

RECIPE: Southwest Beef Quinoa with Cilantro and Sour Cream
Serves: 4
Prep / Cook Time: 45 minutes

Noodle Salad with a Peanut Satay - no need to hide the veggies!

I have never been one to hide veggies in my meals as I have always felt it was important to teach my kids to love vegetables and to understand the nutritional value behind them. As well, we often discuss the importance of choosing organic, non-GMO, and local whenever possible. They get it. Aside from tomatoes, my Son loves and eats all fruit and veggies, and aside from spicy jalapeño peppers and such, my daughter does as well. Mission accomplished. :)

Mally Designs Fall Markets and Retail Shows Announced!

Mally Designs Fall 2015 MarketsWow, we had an amazing summer, both as a family and as a business! While I am sad to see it go as I write this on the first day of Autumn Equinox, I am also excited. There's something special about fall, and I always feel inspired to go shopping for new boots, sweaters and scarves and I crave cozying up with a cup of tea after a long walk stepping on crunching leaves.

We're retiring from shows plus, a shipping update

The title says it all, and it's true. It's time, and it feels right. After 14 seasons, we have decided it's time to wrap up the Craft Show and Christmas Market chapter in our lives and really start to enjoy the holidays. Our kids are getting older and through the years we have loved doing these shows, but the only downside it that it has also meant being away from our kids for a few weeks and for a very fast paced December served with a side of exhaustion for us all.
