Lovely Paper by Djeco

Lovely Paper by Djeco
The creative team of the Djeco brand has launched a new line: Lovely Paper. And we were so lucky to be able to test and try some of those products here at home.

I have a very soft spot for anything paper. Books, magazines, postcards and of course craft supplies. This is perfect. Djeco is a brand that I always check when I need a gift, adding the Paper Collection is such a great extension because finding gifts for teens is not always easy but they {usually} all love crafting.

Everything is beautifully illustrated – of course- and the new collection includes notebooks, gums, pencil cases, masking tape, diaries, pens and colored pencils and also these cool glossy stickers that I still know from my own childhood. The ones we collected, got albums and carefully sticked them in those. And then showed them to our friends. Do you remember these?

This beautiful Djeco stationery range makes every kid’s heart beat faster.

There are also glitter and metallic markers,  secret notebooks and mini stamps sets.

Hazel Village

hazel village
Hazel Village was born in 2010 by Jane Van Cleef.

One weekend, I decided to make a toy that I would have liked as a child – a cute and soft doll with a big wardrobe. I cut up some good fabric scraps in the front room of my apartment in Brooklyn, then sewed them into a tiny version of Annicke Mouse. I thought she was so cute, so I made some friends for her and started to imagine the animals’ forest world. I listed the dolls on Etsy, each with its own little outfit and back story. And I took them to local craft markets around Brooklyn.’

Today the animals are produced responsibly in India. Hand made from organic cotton they come in a cute outfit. You can then add more clothes {I love this sweet little box full of heirloom pieces}for some great role play hours and even buy matching outfits for your child.

Quality toys that can stay with your children as they grow up – first as soft, snuggly friends, then as companions for storytelling and dress-up play, and eventually as treasured keepsakes.

Pokemon Birthday Party

Pokemon birthday party

Antoine turned 7 at the end of March and he wanted a Pokemon Birthday Party.

 

 

I ordered a few Pokemon themed Party supplies and decided to make a Pokeball cake. Lucky me – it was more or less as easy as I hoped it would be.

Through google I found a simple Birthday Cake recipe. With frosting. My base and I already bookmarked it for future birthday cakes. It is a great basis. So I made this cake and the frosting. Bought some red food colouring, black fondant and marshmallows.

A great mix of fairies, capes, romantic and brave.
