Tips for decorating your child's space
November 15, 2013
Children are so playful and fun and it has been very rewarding for to me to represent a child's personality through their space.  A child's space doesn't have to follow all the rules that adult spaces follow and can be more whimsical and creative. I thought it might be fun and hopefully helpful to share ...

Wunway
October 21, 2013
I am a huge fan of the girls' clothing brand Wunway.  Their clothing is so beautiful, and unique, and so reasonably priced. Wunway was founded by three close friends Melanie Chu, Nicole Kim, and Ella Kim.  These mothers (they have 10 children between them) wanted to make better quality and better priced clothing for girls ...

As a child I received a custom made dollhouse for Christmas.  I loved playing with it and spent many hours re-arranging the furniture, and adding special little touches to it.  I still have a fascination with dollhouses and everything in miniature. Several months ago I found a vintage dollhouse at a thrift store and I ...

Wooden Doll Family Portrait
May 8, 2013
Several months back I did a tutorial on Bloesem Kids showing how to make a wooden doll family.  The inspiration for this project came from the dolls designed by Alexander Girard and my son's drawings of our family.  Instead of the basic wooden people that you buy at the craft store I made our little family with ...

My baby girl is almost two years old and still doesn't have a lot of hair.  For special occasions I like to put something in her hair, the clips do not work and fall out immediately.  For my daughter's hair I use Girlie Glue.  Girlie Glue is a hair accessory glue that is all natural ...
