FF Gift Guide for Kids

November 25, 2013 | Christmas, Guides

Hi, happy Monday! Did you all have a nice weekend?

This morning we’re doing the last of our Gift Guides – for the kiddies! I had a bit of a tricky time putting this one together if I’m honest… I don’t have any kids, and *obviously* kids range so much in age, so it was hard to narrow down my selections! There’s just so much gorgeous stuff out there for kids! I’ve tried to choose gifts for a range of ages, so hopefully there’ll be something here for everyone :)

A video for your weekend

Confession.

I own 4 Oliver Jeffers books, and I don’t even have any kids! I adore them, completely, and could just read them over and over again. I actually get teary reading the end of ‘Lost and Found‘.. not many kids books can do that to me!

I was so happy to come across this video of how Oliver Jeffers goes about creating his books.. it’s totally quirky and fun, exactly how the books are. Fabulous!

Have a wonderful weekend, see you back here Monday :)

Inspired by a little girl’s party

July 13, 2012 | Inspired by...

I was hanging out on Pinterest the other day (as you do) and came across this party thrown by TheHennCoop for her daughter’s 1st birthday party. I was completely taken with the sweet and simple decorating style, which seems refreshing after seeing so many over the top kids parties on Pinterest lately!

So I thought it might be fun to put together a few finds inspired by the photo..

I Heart Art: Fingerprints

March 26, 2012 | Art

Hi all, it’s Donaville from Discover Paper and today I wanted to share something for the kids – fingerprint guestbooks!

Fingerprint guestbooks seem to have been quite a craze for the past few years, and it’s no wonder why: it’s a really great way to leave a lasting impression! I’ve seen fingerprint trees a’plenty around the blogosphere, namely for weddings, but fingerprint pirate ships, elephants, and airplanes? I hadn’t heard of those until I stumbled across Bianca Hewson’s shop on Etsy. Bianca’s taken a popular idea and expanded it beyond the wedding scene, making birthdays and other events all the more memorable and fun. It’s DIY artwork!
