Glitter & gold

I shared some of Maddy Lucas’ wonderful work in this Poppies & Pages post. Today I wanted to bring you a little more as her photography is fantastic and she has some awesome ideas for props!

For more of this shoot head over to this post. I love the vintage look achieved with the colours and outfit choice, and I love the shot of the girl grinning through the glitter :)

Wee Society’s DIY dress-up

It’s that time of year again… Time to start thinking about Halloween costumes! Woo hoo! There are so many fabulous ideas out there. We featured a great round-up last year for those families that like to be coordinated, but today I have a brilliant diy costume idea – paper bag costumes from wee society.

Doodles to cuddles

I first came across the awesome business Child’s Own Studio some time ago, but for some reason never featured it on the blog! My lovely friend Thea reminded me about it and, before I forget again, I’m bringing it to you!

It’s a simple, but brilliant, idea that takes a child’s drawing and turns it into a stuffed toy! Since the first toy, crafter Wendy has made a few hundred and now has so many requests that she’s currently not taking on orders. But don’t worry, she’s kindly set up a Softiemaker Showcase on her website, featuring other crafters that can turn your child’s drawing into a toy.

Have a look at some examples of her work, I think it’s amazing how closely the toys resemble the drawings…

This would make an awesome, unique gift for a relative. Just get your child to draw them a picture and send it off to get it stuffed! Or sneakily send off a drawing for your child. Imagine how exciting it would be when their drawing, in 3D form, arrives in the post?! I love it!
