Where the Wild Things are...

I have been having a rough, oh, month or so...I've been sick, my Etsy shop is down, my camera is broken...but soon, soon I will be back in full force! Really!

In the meantime, here is a video clip that I really enjoyed and hope you will too (gives me chills for some reason...the good kind of chills). My sister Soleilgirl sent me the link. She's smart like that. I made a Wild Thing and a Max costume for my family a few Halloweens ago and then won First Prize with them on Etsy(!), so aside from loving the book ever since I was a kid, me and the Wild Things, we're tight. ;)

By the way, the song in the trailer is called 'Wake Up' by Arcade Fire (a Canadian indie band) . Karen O (of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and Carter Burwell did the music for the movie which was written by Spike Jonze and Dave Eggers. Coming in October...oh I can hardly wait!!!

About Me

My photo
Mamazakka is Mommy blogger Autumn Sousanis; also-known-as Autumn Dunbar; and also-known-as "Mama" to six little ones, ages 9, 7.5, 5, 3.5 2 and a 3 month old! :) Busy,yes. A graduate of C.C.S. (Center for Creative Studies, School of Art and Design in Detroit) with my bachelor's degree in Fine Arts, I have finally found my calling as 'Mamazakka', maker of everything and anything that might improve your home, life and outlook. :) It's my goal to create things that truly meet Wikipedia's definition for 'zakka'; (here's an excerpt)..."cute, corny, kitschy is not enough. To qualify, a product must be attractive, sensitive and laden with subtext." Oh yeah! You betcha! Well, that's my goal, anyhow! I'm also known as an over-user of exclamation marks(!) and parentheses (can't help it) though I do try to keep my smileys to a minimum :)
