Yellow is the happiest colour on the planet. Don’t believe me? Look at these posters and tell me if they don’t brighten up your mid-week already!
I’m obsessed with notebooks so it is only natural that I should want to make my own. From multi-pages to single-sheet DIY notebooks, there’s something thrilling about writing in a book you’ve made yourself.
If you’re new to bookmaking, try this super-simple one sheet book (click image to see tutorial). I make several of these at a time. The 5 yo and I have been busy conjuring up stories and writing/drawing them into these books. Great fun and these make wonderful memories too.
And here are some of ours:
I have a Bookmaking Board on Pinterest, if you’d like to follow along on this adventure. Do you make your own books? Share them with us!
There’s a new book out and it promises to be good. I love looking at pictures of real homes and while we might ooh and aah over those beautifully styled magazine photos, there’s nothing like a glimpse into regular people’s homes. Some of your favourite bloggers feature in the book by Ellie Tennant (who has a lovely blog herself) including SFGirlbybay, Justina Blakely and Oh Joy. Take a look at Ellie’s post about the book here (with links to the other bloggers). Inspiration for us all! Congratulations to Ellie and all the other bloggers on what looks like a beautiful keepsake. Photos by Rachel Whiting.
I’m in love with these limited edition prints by Jonathan Adler. The animal series is simply elegant and I would love to have one of these in our home. Unfortunately, priced at $995, these are WAYYYYYY out of my budget, so I shall simply sigh and admire them from afar.
Take a look at the series here.
