February 10th, 2015

Louise Misha was created in Paris by two designer friends, Aurélie Remetter et Marie Pidancet in 2012. They started off with a small jewelry collection for kids which could also be worn by Mamas and since then, they have blossomed into very sweet, Boho inspired and romantic wear for little girls. I also adore their accessories, especially those precious sandals! And take a look at their “making of” video below. These videos are getting more and more popular and I think a great idea to really see the garments in action.

February 9th, 2015

These DIY cardboard ships are pretty amazing found on the Ikatbag blog. They were inspired by Narnia and I just love the way they are so well engineered. No amateur, badly designed ships in sight. These are a clear example where the box the toy comes in is more interesting than the toy! There is a very clear tutorial and more photos if you would like to attempt this. And yes, you guessed it -next on our list of craft projects!
