Great2BHome is a sweet little Etsy shop that offers giant (and I mean giant) posters for you and your children (or students) to color. As you can see by the examples shared here they are intricately detailed and stunning to look at.
Laurie, the kind creator, sent us four of these gorgeous posters and I must admit, when they arrived, I had a really hard time sharing with my girls. The heavy, luxurious paper and the thick black line-work makes these more of an art print than a poster and I wanted to do all of the coloring myself.
Of course, I was able to bring myself around and share with my little girls, but not without some serious heartache when they went out of the lines numerous times! Of course, coloring is about the process, not the product, right? Right?!
Well, I've saved the Butterfly for myself, but my heart still hurts that I didn't get a chance at that Elephant.
Which would be your favorite?
I think it's time for a giveaway or two!
Villas Sorgenfrei is this amazing little jewelry shop in Berlin.
The artist, Claudia, makes the chicest little handmade pieces and the prices are great. I usually don't talk price in this section of a feature, but for less than thirty dollars Canadian you can have many of her gorgeous pieces. It's unheard of, so I bookmarked her shop and scrolled all evening though everything she has for sale and decided I loved the pieces featured here the best. I'm a sucker for handmade jewelry.
Do you have a favorite? Check out her work and come back to comment your favorite piece for a chance to win the lovely earrings made with real dried flowers or the sterling wrap heart ring you see below. Winners will be notified via FB or email.
Beehive Art by Kimbeehive is one of my greatest finds yet. I love when my children get engaged in meaningful art projects but who has the time to find an idea, gather the materials and execute the whole thing? Certainly, not me. Problem solved, because here is one mama who has taken the planning and material gathering out of the equation. You can order an ART BOX or better yet, sign up for the subscription for months of great art projects for your children.
In fact, I think this would be a lovely gift to a child from a grandparent (hint, hint Grama). Who wouldn't love a gift that keeps on giving?
Kimbeehive, who has been one of the most lovely people to partner with by the way, was kind enough to send us the Valentine Art Box. I simply can't wait to break it open and let my girls create their own personal Valentines.
I'm always so late to the game on these things. Have you tried this adult coloring thing? I was hesitant, at first. In fact, the more popular it became the more I resisted. I can be so contrary, at times.
Anway, I finally tried it. I added a glass of wine and a good friend to my recipe and it was perfect. It was so relaxing and satisfying, especially if the page was as intricate as these original drawings by SOULPRINTS.
You can print these directly after purchasing or order a set to enjoy. I'm not going to lie. I am doing this each and every night now. SOULPRINTS is my latest obsession for design and I think you'll love her too.
Of course, I had concerns when I heard that Netflix was going to take on one of the greatest children's books, nay books, nay book series of all time. Could they possible do it justice? The film version was great, as well; a true tribute to the clever prose of Snicket himself. Could Netflix even come close to the genius that is Meryl Streep as Josephine Anwhistle?
Yes. The answer is yes. Netflix must have allotted a luxurious budget for this show because it is so well done and well-acted, it's sure to be on everyone's binge list.
Now rather than waste your time by continuing with this review, Ill simply direct you towards this link which should take you into the dark, dreary and delightful world of Lemony Snicket.
