From my iphone, moments at the park with Anouk, beach time with Lula, new products, naps, playground life, San Francisco and the fabulous weather we’ve had these past couple weeks!

Anouk wearing Lula’s old leggings at the playground. It is so funny to see her in Lula clothes, it brings back so many sweet memories.

I think I kiss those cheeks a million times a day. I just can’t stop.

A Colorful Christmas Village! #KEEPSAKEIT

Welcome into my studio! I had the chance to partner with Hallmark this year to create a colorful Christmas diy inspired by one of their ornaments, a mini Crayola box. You already know how colors make me happy! So this year I wanted to try something a little different than the traditionnal red and green. The colorful crayons from the box reminded me of the beautiful Victorian houses here in San Francisco, where I live. So I created my own paper village using the colors inspired by the ornament.

My daughter Lula loves it too! She think I made a city of paper dollhouses just for her!

These look so lovely on a mantle and we can keep adding to it year after year.

I think when Lula gets old enough, it will be a fun family project to do together!

It’s so funny she looks inside and says “toc, toc, qui est la?” (“knock, knock, who’s there?)

Happy Halloween!

IMG_5960

I hope you had a great Halloween weekend! Here are a few photos of Lula in her handmade costume (I took the morning after). She is obsessed with planes lately, I think “avion” is the word she says the most during the day, (well after “I want…” ) so I thought it would be fun if she was a little aviator for Halloween! I made the airplane with cardboard and paint. It was fun to make and she loved it! She kept playing with it during the week, jumping in, pretend she was flying. Then came Halloween day and she refused to put it on for trick or treating… she’s been a little grumpy after her naps lately so it was impossible to get her to wear it. But hey, that’s life with a toddler right?! So we got together with a few friends families and went trick or treating anyway, we still got her to wear the helmet and goggles and me and my big belly pretended to be a cloud with a rainbow (imagine me on the way to my friend’s house in the car…haha). Lula had so much fun picking out candies and chocolates at the houses and we stopped for a good hour in front of a house with a dj for a dance party with a bunch of people, that was the best! Watching toddlers dancing is seriously the funniest thing ever.

Now I can rest! Baby girl is coming in 3 weeks! I am 37 weeks pregnant today, time flies but really this month feels the longest!!!

My Baby’s Flamingo Nursery!

flamingo-nursery_2

I had so much fun decorating this little space for our baby girl due next month! She will be sharing Lula’s bedroom. I’ve wanted a vintage rotin crib since I was pregnant with Lula so I was really happy to find one in France this summer. And I fell in love with the matching doll bed so Lula can play with her baby doll while I play with mine! The theme for this nursery is a little tropical, I wanted to make a paper flamingo for a long time so this was the perfect occasion and I thought it would look super fun with the shell mobile I bought in Greece this summer. The wall used to be grey for Lula’s nursery, but I wanted some change, something more colorful and not girly to balance with all the pink that’s in the room already! I am a little obsessed with that blue lately (I even got a new fabric set of that color for our bugaboo stroller). The one last thing I’d like to add on the wall is this beautiful pineapple mirror I saw in a cute little shop in France, they only had the larger one but my mum is on the waiting list for the little one that should arrive any day now. I am so excited to add it to the space, I think it will be really cute on the wall above the dresser.

I was so happy to find this dresser on The Land of Nod, it fits perfectly in the color palette and it looks like it was made to be with Lula’s caravan bed from Kalon studio!

When I discovered Donsje on instagram I fell in love with their booties, so thank you Donsje, now my baby girl has a bigger shoe collection than mine (yes they are not all shown in the photos…). Oh and I just saw they have new ones in their shop, I mean look at these!

I am addicted to baskets as you know and had my eye on the Eliza Gran one for quite some time. The colors of the poms is perfect for her little space and it looks great with the ones I brought back from Marrakesh and London. I added the crochet round rug to make the space a little cozier and brighten up the floor a little (our hardwood floors are so dark! I wish I could paint them all white!)

Oh I can’t wait to see her little feet in these!

My Work For Playstation!

Tearaway-1

Last week I had the chance to create a visual for PlayStation’s 20 years anniversary and the launch of Tearaway Unfolded game, a messenger’s delivery adventure through a papercraft world! For the occasion PlayStation console got a Tearaway makeover: the PS1 console, controller and the little figurine from the game, all made of paper! The image was already published on their social pages.

A really fun project to work on, I hope you enjoy it!

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a lovely weekend!

I spent most of mine working, wrapping up some clients projects and orders from the shop before Lula and I leave for a month and half (maybe two) tomorrow! London, France and Greece… I seriously can’t wait!

I was so envious of Lula’s pineapple sunglasses from Gap kids but couldn’t find them in my size so I had to make myself paper ones! And this is what I plan on doing for these next 2 months… a much needed vacation and I am so happy Lula will get to spend a lot of time with our family and friends.
