Our Next Tutu Workshop at the Amazing City Treehouse!

April 18th, 2012


Our first Tutu Making Workshop was such a success, we are doing another one on April 28th! (See flyer below for details. And if you can’t make this one, you can order a Tutu Kit directly from me: And I am thrilled to team up with the great people at a place we have loved since it opened when Oona was only one year old: City Treehouse in Chelsea! The main attraction is their unique water play area – Oona has just adored playing in this space as she, like all kids, just loves water…and I have found it the best place to be on a hot summer day. Their super fun treehouse with slide and fiber optic cave have also kept her busy many an hour. Apart from that, they offer a smorgasbord of fantastic art, dance, music and language classes and they also host birthday parties. In fact, Oona had her very first painting class here. Sweet memories…




Children’s Paper Chair by Charlotte Friis

April 15th, 2012

What a fantastic idea by Charlotte Friis. This chair is made with drawing paper, and as the paper is used , the size of the front cylinder increases following the child’s growth. Clean paper is transferred from the back cylinder to the front simply by rolling the front cylinder backwards. The amount of paper is approx. 500 meters, which means that the paper can be changed twice a week for 5 years. What I love about it the most is that all of the drawings are archived in the same place. Genius.
