Tzipi is ready to go!

There is great excitement among our house dwellers tonight, for tomorrow Tzipi the World Traveling Flutterbutt will embark on her trip around the world.

Tzipi, fresh out of the army and eager to see the world, will be traveling to meet, stay as a guest and have fun with 10 wonderful hosts in England, Scotland, France, New Zealand, Arizona, Washington, Virgina, Texas and Israel. All agreed to open their hearts and homes to the little Flutterbutt and show her a good time. Each of the hosts will take pictures of their mutual adventures and blog about the visit. I will update you guys as the project progresses, so you can follow Tzipi on her journey!

Wanted - Promos

As some of you know, I send a little promo pack to each of my customers. These packs are quite popular and make a nice surprise for the customers. It also presents fellow Etsians with a nice opportunity to get their shops introduced to a new audience.

This is that time of the year (post holidays glee) when I find myself almost out of promo packs. So I am looking for items up to the size of a standard business card, such as:
  • Coupons
  • Buttons and badges
  • Magnets
  • Charms
  • Stickers
  • Moo cards
Promo pack
These are a few of the items I had in this round, it was a wonderful pack!

New promo packs - see your item here?

If you want to send me your promos, please leave a comment or email me at and I will send you my shipping address (in Israel).

My Birthday Wishlist

Soon my pre-birthday period will begin. A few friends asked me if I will be posting a birthday wishlist this year, since they found it useful last year. When people want to buy me gifts, I cannot refuse. So here is my wishlist for this year. I tried to keep it diverse in terms of prices. 

Thank you so much in advance, for those who show interest or asked me to post this. I love my friends, and I love these items from Etsy. Buy handmade, I say, especially for my birthday.

If you prefer to give me a book, here is my Amazon birthday wishlist.

Fraggle Rock'n'Roll

Yesterday stumbled into a must addition for my wardrobe. Actually it's more of a uniform, being a puppeteer, so I had to buy one (okay, a couple) of the Jim Henson's Fraggle Rock collection for Zara! Look how nice it looks, and soft too not to mention fairly priced.

T-shirt Zara, trousers - Evans, shoes - Fly London, monster necklace - Shay Aaron

Go to this website the Henson company setup - they actually have remixes of the Fraggle Rock themes. So cool!

Here's a little reminder for you guys, enjoy!

Meet Tzipi, the world traveling Flutterbutt

A fundamental element of my World Traveling Flutterbutt Project is the world traveling Flutterbutt. That is why I thought it's time to introduce you to the lady herself, soon to embark on her world tour, Miss Tzipi Flutterbutt!

Tzipi is a 20 year old Flutterbutt, fresh out of the army. She spent the last few weeks of her service, like so many other Israelis, dreaming of a great tour of the world so she heard I am conducting auditions for Flutterbutts she immediately contacted me asking to be interviewed.

Tzipi - The World Traveling Flutterbutt

Tzipi strikes me as a strong willed, highly competent young Flutterbutt. She enjoys hiking, hiking, swimming, diving, and many other outdoor activities. She also loves the theater. As her appearance may reveal, she is attracted punk and rock music and colture. She has a slight discoloration in her eyes ("just like David Bowie" she says) and is fair skinned and freckled, so will need lots of sunscreen to avoid getting burnt in direct sun. She usually forgets to take care of this herself, so you will need to help her with that.

Tzipi - The World Traveling Flutterbutt

Tzipi is almost ready to embark on her great adventure. This is the list of hosts I compiled for her journey. Please confirm you are still in or update me otherwise. Note, the list is random, and does not reflect the order of her trip.
  1. Craftiness (Austin, Texas, USA)

World Traveling Flutterbutt

I haven't blogged lately, due to my cold-flu thing now turned sinus infection, but I wanted to write a short update regarding my World Traveling Flutterbutt Project.

The little lady is almost ready to go. I will write an introductory post, of course, during the next few days. But in the meanwhile (aka - till the antibiotics kick in) I would like to ask anyone who wants to join and haven't done so yet to comment here!

The hosting guidelines will be, more or less, as follows:
  1. Take good care of the Flutterbutt and make sure she is not eaten by stray dingos.
  2. Ship the Flutterbutt to its next host by registered mail, so we have a tracking number to follow-up on.
  3. Write about your mutual adventures on your blog and add photos.
I will be making a "I hosted a Flutterbutt" button for the participating blogs, so they can boast in their glory.

Okay, headache now. I am looking forward to your comments!

In the meanwhile, here is another world famous Flutterbutt traveler,
Pinky during our trip to London
