the LITTLE PICASSO SERIES

As creativity is never in short supply in our house, and I am always searching, making or creating something new. It’s of no real surprise that my children turn out ‘masterpieces’ like there is no tomorrow.  In fact someone is painting as I write this!!! (… which someone else who IS writing this will have to clean up later…).

But how often do you get the chance to work with an acclaimed local artist to create something completely unique and beautiful?! Continue reading the LITTLE PICASSO SERIES

D.I.Y. Back to School Chalkboard Sign

I think it’s safe to say I am all about the photos and memories and remembering funny things and moments. So it’s no real surprise that it has become a bit of a right of passage in our house to hold and make our first day of school signs. Continue reading D.I.Y. Back to School Chalkboard Sign

West Coast Rock Painting

We love summer and spending time with our family on the sunshine coast. It’s hard to beat an afternoon at the beach with cousins! Enjoying time on the coast together has become a bit of a summer tradition and so has coming up with a fun summertime activity that everyone can participate in and make some good memories creating. This year my sister in law and I decided that activity would be rock painting! Continue reading West Coast Rock Painting

But I love design that much and I also love (flying head first into) a challenge and nothing is more fun than decorating for kids!! Continue reading How to Create a Reading Corner

Record ‘Balloons’ With Silhouette

I immediately fell in love with this silhouette of a little girl holding balloons, which are actually records. I thought it was such an adorable idea for a wall. I knew I wanted something with some musical inspiration for the space I was working on, and when I found this on Pinterest, I knew right away what I was going to do!

Literary Sign Post

 

I have seen many versions of delightful storybook and literary locale sign posts floating around Pinterest for years and have of course wanted to make my own for ages. But really our place is done, there is not an inch to spare. But when I took on the challenge of turning a portable at my daughter’s school into a fun and inviting multi purpose space, I knew I finally had just the excuse I needed!!
