chain chompI like to be surrounded by cute things.  If I ever find myself feeling down about something, I just grab something cute and my day is instantly better.  Now if those cute things involve a big mouth and a chain, I’m even happier.

Steph also creates adorable jewelry, buttons, notebooks and more.  Go visit her exciting shop today!


Melvin’s Pick of the Day- 4/25/12- Could Bee Yours

25 Apr

chain chompEverybody loves Super Mario Bros.  And out of all of the many characters that appear in the games, one of the coolest is the beloved chain chomp.  I don’t know why I love that little guy so much, he actually gives me anxiety at times, but he is so cute!

Gisel Trujillo from Could Bee Yours loves that little chain chomp too, and has created these gorgeous chain chomp earrings.  Looks like your ear didn’t jump out of the way quick enough, but would you want it to?

If you don’t love chain chomp as much as Gisel or I do, you still need to check out her shop.  Gisel has crafted jewelry from Zelda, Star Wars and even Adventure Time!


Treasury Tuesday!

8 Mar

Hello to my geektastic friends! Debra here! Welcome to the new corner of Mom’s Basement that we like to call Treasury Tuesday! Here, we will sit Melvin in front of Etsy and have him pick out his favorite 16 items every week and post them for you all to see! Sometimes, we may be hosting BNRs (Buy-N-Replace, where you buy an item off the treasury only to have that item replaced with an item from your own store!), so stay tuned for all the antics!

This week, Melvin was playing some hardcore N64 (he hasn’t upgraded because his sister needed braces) and unfortunately kept being killed by the Chomp Chomp. Melvin was very upset and I was worried he was going to hurt his CRT TV, which are hard to come by these days since they’re, well, old, so I suggested that we purchase a Chomp Chomp from Etsy so that he could take his frustration out on that! And take a look at all the fun things we came up with!
