Pull your feet out of the snow (be it virtual or real) and get stepping!  Spring is a time of renewal, new starts and a new attitude.  Amidst the doom & gloom of the newspapers & nightly news there are great things happening everywhere.  If there are children in your household you know that it doesn’t take long for tears or a sad face to change to laughter.  Children have the natural ability to find the good, fun or humor in the very next moment.  This is a lesson that our little ones should sit us down and teach!  No matter what is going on in our lives or the world, there is always something very close to smile at or be thankful for. 
2009 has started off well for Yahzi Rose with a record number of online sales! 
Thank you, hugs & kisses to our new customers, subscribers, and our loyal little ones.

Mother’s Day 
Sunday May 10, 2009  
Celebrate the mommies!  Don’t forget to include the ‘other-mothers’ that the world couldn’t do without: Aunts, godmothers, grands and babysitters.  I personally love gifts ; ) but I think most moms would just love a day off!  Suggestions you say?
~ Peace & Quiet!  LOL
~ There are wonderful places like Full Plate that offer a week’s worth of prepared home-cooked meals.
~ Can someone say MAID?  A highly recommended Green Housekeeping service would make any mother smile.
~ What about a good old-fashioned date? One that requires absolutely no planning on the mom’s part.  Everything from babysitting to dessert is taken care of.
Let us know how you celebrated!

Dear Kysha,


I’d like to say welcome to our new e-listers and welcome back to our regular family!  I certainly hope Spring has been good to you and Summer holds promise.  We’re not halfway through 2008 and wow, what a year it is shaping up to be.  Don’t miss a great opportunity to engage children in conversations about today’s events.  Their insights on the election, natural disasters and the environment may surprise you.  It also gives us a chance to view the world through their fresh eyes and impart our views and life lessons in a way that doesn’t happen on a day to day basis.

I hope you aren’t letting all the talk about the economy get you down.  I prefer to look at it as an opportunity to not stop spending, but rather spend our money wisely.  And while yes, this is a shameless plug for YR and other Indie designers 😉 it is also a plea to buy your produce from the local farmer’s market, skip 2 fast food meals and eat at a small family-owned restaurant instead, seek out local contractors as opposed to chains, etc.  In essence, lets watch where our money goes after it leaves our hand.  What do you think?
And now, without further ado..
We’ve updated the YR website, check it out!


LOUDER! T-shirts 6mo-8


!Is it just my kids or do other children seem to get louder as the minutes, days, and years go by?? 

We’ve created some colorfully cool T-shirts to capture this strange phenomenon! (yes, I know he LOOKS awfully quiet, however…)
They are just $24, super-soft and come in a unisex style and a girl’s cap sleeve.  Who needs a S on their chest when they could have an exclamation point??

Going Green

YR is committed to learning sustainable practices in business & daily life. Each month we will include an easy to incorporate tip to assist with Going Green. 



Did you know that one sixth of household electricity is used by refrigerators and freezers?  I know, I know, all that yelling about the lights and this is the real culprit! 


Here are a few quick fridge tips:

Keep a pitcher of water in your fridge.  Working like an ice pack in a lunch box, the water helps keep your food cold more efficiently.  Also, when tap water sits uncovered for a while, most of the chlorine evaporates.  This leaves you with a healthier thirst-quencher that is easily accessible and much better than soda.
*  Don’t waste energy, check your temperatures.  Who knows how those dials land on a weird number?  Maybe it was your “father-who-knows-best”, containers shoved into a corner or you guessed it… the kids.  The EPA recommends 37 degrees F for refrigerators and 3 degrees F for freezers.
*  Don’t overwork the thing!  Over and under-stuffing a fridge will force it to work too hard.  Fill your refrigerator without overcrowding and it will save you money instead.
Check out, we did for these tips!
