Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American friends – and a thankful day to all of you around the world too. It’s a glorious day for a big hearty meal and time with family and friends. We’ll be back on the blog Monay, but for now, enjoy a little paper turkey to get you ready […]
I have a serious soft spot for feathers, so now I must find some white feathers and some time with Birdie to make these gorgeous creations. And they’re so simple too. See two different tutorials at Babble Dabble Do.
I used to hate any mention of Christmas before Thanksgiving, I was like a Charlie Brown disciple: it’s not Christmas until December! But Christmas flies by so insanely fast, that I’ve started to sneak it in earlier this year. We were playing Christmas music last week, and for the first time we actually have our Christmas tree […]
Sometimes I have the urge to hoard all of my “secret” sources for great new toy finds. If I told you where I find everything, then I’m deeply afraid you’ll stop needing me and this blog. Super needy, I know. And a little paranoid. I’m turning over a new leaf. Today, let’s take a peek […]
This year is turning into a whirlwind of good things. I can’t even keep them all straight anymore. The only wrench in the works is normally my workload dies down around the Holidays, and I look forward to enjoying the season. Not this year! I think this year I may be buying Christmas gifts at […]
I’d like to take a moment to float above my life and see all the wonderful things that are happening in it from a new perspective. Much like this floating illustrations by Eleanor Rudge – aren’t the colors versus shadows lovely?
Animal Jam, in association with National Geographic, and Small for Big are continuing a great new partnership! I’ll be creating printable animal toys for you to download, print, and assemble your own animals and environments: with a different land and its animals featured each month. Today is the fifth land in our series. Animal Jam , in association […]
Sometimes we dream impossible dreams. And sometimes I just have to share them with you, even though they’re not particularly realistic. You know, like when you get a hankering for a $1400 Naef Gloggomobil Wooden Organ Musical Instrument. If it helps my argument any, it’s entirely handmade in Switzerland. They say it takes Swiss craftsmen […]
I love the Holidays so much. They’re coming up fast, and this year I wanted to make sure I have lots of fun printables for everyone to celebrate the Holidays even if it’s at the last second, the day before, or the hour of. So let’s take a stroll through some of the new printables at […]
You read that right, it’s a confetti-stuffed turkey, thanks to Studio DIY. I’m in love with this thing. I found it halfway through a new project, but it’s still inspiring me. Hopefully you’ll see why in Monday’s post. Cue maniacal laughter. Why? Because I’ve been dedicating all of my creative energy to Smallful this week, […]
The week of Smallful inspiration continues with a little bit of everything. From toys, to Christmas, to retro illustrations like these fabulous Christmas gift tags. I’m smitten with all of it. Did you stop by Smallful and see the new printables yet? I’m working on a third one right now! What a week I’m having over […]
Let’s see, today’s Smallful printables inspiration is a product that combines two of my favorite things: cardboard, and DIY animals. The bright colors and the innovative construction of this Fold Up Animal Parade have me very intrigued. And if you stop by Smallful, you might just see a couple of new products – I’ll feature […]
It’s crunch time this week at Smallful – I have several projects in the works and I want them all done asap! So, this week I want to share with you some of the things that are inspiring me, while I work hard to bring some new ideas to life. Today, it’s this crystallized little snowman […]
Roller skates – such an iconic memory! I never owned my own pair, but I have very vivid memories of the roller rink -the lights and shadows, the older skaters whizzing by, the nacho cheese sauce. Why wouldn’t you want to go back to that for an afternoon? Well, I might remember a lot of […]
Hello and welcome to your November – how has it been so far? I’m still the busiest of busy bees – but I have to say that at least I’m loving the work I’m doing. It’s not busy work at all, but very fulfilling. There are several things, but I think I’m most exited about […]
