I have received a number of reader questions lately and decided to answer a few of them here in case others had the same questions:
Question: I love your Playlist music. I cannot find a place on your page telling who is the artist singing. Would you please let me know?
Answer:The best way to see what is playing and by whom is to go to the player in my sidebar. Below the player you will see a grey bar that says "Create Your Own Playlist". Directly to the right of that you will see a second grey bar that is cut off. Click it. It opens my playlist in a new window and shows every song and artist.
Question: Where do you get your ideas from?
Answer: Mostly practicality. We are on a limited budget and my crafting time (with three kids) is precious. I would not make a ruffled headboard tutorial (as cute as they are) because we have a headboard I love. So, I draw my ideas and tutorials from something that would fill a need...even if that need is simply having fun...it must be something we would enjoy. So the items I make here are ones I would make anyway, blog or not, and I simply share the finished project and the process with you.
Question: What font do you use for your post titles?
Answer: It's called PeaCammi Pea and I use it because it is eerily similar to my actual handwriting. I made my own handwriting font once, but the sizing was off. This is so close I decided not to bother. Download it for FREE by clicking here.
Question: Why do some of your photos say "Emilie Handmade" on the watermark?
Answer: My blog used to be titled Emilie Handmade. Then I changed it over to Plucky Momo with a new look and new format. The old blog was too classy for me. When asked to describe myself in one word I always answer kooky. The old blog was not kooky, colorful or full of life. As my best friend Emily and I always say: "Emily is Navy Blue + Pearls and Emilie is Orange + Hoochie Hoop Earrings". This new blog is decidedly more me.
Question: Does your blog name have anything to do with Ducky Momo from Phineas and Ferb?
Answer:Ding! Ding! Ding! ERIN wins a gold star! This family loves Phineas and Ferb and one of our favorite episodes stars a forgotten childhood character named Ducky Momo. His downfall came when a commemorative plate was misprinted with the phrase, "I Hate People". Hilarious!
And in case you were wondering, YES, there will be a future post about sewing your own Ducky Momo softie. I have the plans brewing in my head right now.
