One of my favorite things in this world is lip balm. Whenever I'm running around in the house without make-up, I have lip balm on. I'm convinced that it is an addiction. I can remember being obsessed with "carmex" back in my school days. It is nothing for us to stock 12 different little circular yellow tins of that mighty powerful balm in our house today. Kenidi loves it too. I think she thinks it is lip gloss. She'll bring me the tins of carmex, hold it up and show me, rub her finger on her little lips and verbalize/say the word "wips" as her way of letting me know she wants me to put some on her. It's too cute.

I have two favorite lip balms in this world and they are the carmex and the Laura Mercier lip balm. I can't get enough of either of them. However, now I have a new favorite. My girlfriend Krissie, (thanx lovah!) got me this zebra decorated ball of lip balm from Boston last year in a gift shop there. It was one of my birthday gifts from her. I've opened it up and showed it to you below...

This is actually not the original one. I zipped thru the one she got me in world record time. I was beside myself though because I couldn't find the ball lip balms anywhere around here. Well, low and behold...I walked into a gift shop here the other day and found them. Tons of them. Lots of fun designs - even pink leopard (shown in the first image above) and some with peace signs on them. ROCKIN'!!! So...I knew I had to share my latest favorite find with you all. The ball design gives you more than twice the amount of a normal stick lip balm. (per ballmania's website) I also like the fact that these designs come in sports balls as well. (i.e., basketballs, baseballs, tennis balls, golf balls, etc.) so that my son/Brennen can use them without feeling like he is carrying around a stick of girlie lip balm. Ya know? Paired with my little AGD fan fare mirrors, you just can't go wrong. Hee hee! :)

Feel free to visit their website to order online or find a store near you that carries them. I promise you that you won't be disappointed.

Lastly, I just wanted to feature a couple of tee's on here real fast just because I think some of you might enjoy seeing them. Grandma's...I'm talking to you about these...

For those of you with Grandkids, the "MY GRANDKIDS ROCK" rhinestone and applique tee are for you. I had a customer order one as well as a blue team tee for her two grandchildren who play basketball and have the same team colors this season. (They are brother and sister too. How cute!) So...for those of you feeling as though AGD styles are too young for you...think again. We can ROCK out the Grandma closets too! HA HA! And trust don't get two feet ahead without someone stopping you asking you about your tee and where you got it from. Just ask Wanda. (my customer who ordered these) She has a couple of my other team tee's we did for her as well and she got bombarded at the games when wearing them. Thanks for passing out my business card Wanda. :)

Should you have a team tee need or wish to do one of the MY ______ROCK(S) tee's, feel free to email me in regards to placing an order. You can also order directly via the AGD website or our ETSY store.

For now, I'm headed back to my old stomping ground today (Center Grove) and then out to run some much needed errands as well. I do have a sneak peek Spring/Summer 09' AGD design to share with you all this evening. Remember though, I said "sneak peek." Ha ha! Check back for it later tonight. It's just one of many new ones in the works for the up and coming season. Bring on Spring! Hugs, Ang

Oh Angie, I just love my shirts. I can't wait to wear them. It's so funny now, when the grandkids come over the first question they ask is "who shirt are you wearing to today Grandma"? I just love it. Thanks for helping me out with my shirts. I hope you enclosed more business cards in my package because "My Grandma Rocks" is going to be a big seller!
