Allez cuisine! (I’m not sure if I spelled that right. Iron Chef watchers know what I’m talking about.)

I got this from newsletter, which highlighted, a website for baby and shower gifts.

ClassyMommy found a wooden sushi toy set from

Isn’t that wild? Can kids even eat raw fish??? Is it appropriate to give a kid a fake set of food they can’t eat yet?

I could give a set away with my book, Sushi for One? It would match my book, don’t you think? What do you say? Or do you think mothers all over would think I was more nuts than I already am?


  1. Camy,

    I love it! It would be thoroughly appropriate if you gave away a set with your book.

    I have no idea whether it's appropriate for kids or not, but it would make me happy. :-)

  2. I don't know whether or not it's okay to give kids raw fish. I'm not a mom, so I've never heard one way or the other.

    But I wouldn't be so concerned about the fake raw fish. I'm a little wary of that giant cleaver that's sitting in the back! :)


  3. Awesome! What a fun set to display or give away at your book signings! It will give Ginny good competition with her wacky mushrooms!

  4. Lol, I'm pretty sure eating raw fish isn't all that good for kiddos BUT the set is made out of wood and I don't think a kid can really eat wood even if they tried, or at least I hope not. Seriously though that set is too cute! I, like Sbaar, wonder a little about the cleaver though!

  5. OH, give it away! Make somebody's day.

  6. Love the sushi toyset. That's hilarious.

  7. Honestly, my kids wouldn't know what to do with it. They'd look at you and go, so, where's the real toy? LOL! Then again, I think my twins would find some use with the fake knife. Oh, I can see them now--"Wait! I wanna see if it will really cut!"

  8. Aww, what a cool idea, Camy! You could even split the pieces up, include one or the "role" with the set of chopsticks you're doing. What fun! Pop in a pack of dry seaweed and you're set. LOL!

  9. Such a perfect idea for a giveaway with your book...maybe at book signings having a set out. It would certainly draw attention which is always good! Can't wait until your book is finally out.

    Thanks for stopping by and watching my blog glad you liked it!

  10. I think this sushi toy set is a great idea. What fun!!

  11. I *love* it. And CJ would so let the kids play with it in day care. :)

  12. I think it would be a great gift for children. It would introduce them to new food, culture, etc. Sushi is delicious!
    Yes, giving it away with your book is a a must! :-)

  13. My kids have fake sushi in their pretend kitchen. I bought it last year for Christmas. It came complete with chopsticks, wasabi, a square plate, etc. Not as nice as your example, but cost under $10. My daughter just saw your set. Now she wants that one too!

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

How can I pray for you?

Photo credit: 日本語訳は下をご覧ください。 Just when I was feeling better, I had another bad IBS flare up! I had a really wretched 2 weeks in September, but I’m finally starting to feel better. Despite the lost two weeks, I got right back to work and now I'm getting close to finishing book 5 in my Regency series. Please continue to pray that my health will be stable so that I can write without getting derailed by my IBS like I was last month. Lord, thank You for all You give to us. You remind us in little ways each day that You are watching over us and that You love us. Help us to have humble hearts that submit to Your will for us, because we know that You love us fiercely and only want what’s best for us. In Jesus’s name, Amen. How can I pray for you today? Please leave me your prayer requests! Prayer requests can sometimes be private things, so to keep your privacy, I’ve made a form you can fill out that will keep your requests just between you and me.
