I just stumbled across the work of Jackie Huang and I'm so impressed by her pop-up art. I can't imagine what kind of intricate work is put in to produce art like these. She recently put together a "proposal book" for a couple and it made for a romantic and memorable proposal. The kid's books (like red-riding hood) are wonderful as well!

Hurray!! It's Friday! And it's going to be 90 degrees here this weekend, so we're going to the beach tomorrow! We're also going to try to do some bike riding. In celebration of beach-weather, I'm sharing some cute beach gear with you. Enjoy your weekend!

DIY "A Bear Shirt"

After the little guy turned two, I noticed a shortage in clothing options for his age group. There are far less options and the ones that are available aren't great. I spent hours on the web trying to find new t-shirts for this spring/summer and truly didn't find anything I loved. Inspired by all the DIY projects on the web now-a-days, I decided to take on the project of making our own t-shirts. It's the first time I work with fabric ink, and I was really nervous at first. I thought to myself "If I make a mistake, that's a brand new shirt wasted!".

There's Always Room For IceCream!

I am in love with the details of this ice cream party by Sarah (of Style Me Gorgeous) for her 2 year old son Max. And I can't wait to throw an ice cream party now. This would be a great baby shower theme too, so since the little guy's birthday is in the winter, I may have to throw one of these for one my pregnant friends!

We're Making A List: Breastfeeding Essentials

I promised to continue the pre-baby preparation list with what you'll need if you decide to breastfeed. Breastfeeding was a wonderful experience and I loved every second of it. Even though the beginning was really hard and towards the end I worried about weaning, I wouldn't have had it any other way. The benefits of breast feeding include strengething baby's immune system, the convenience of feeding anytime/anywhere and the bonding experience between mother and child.

ChitterChatter: Do You Want A Baby In The Year Of The Dragon?

In the last few weeks, my friends have either just had babies or just told me they were expecting later in the year. It's overwhelming (in the happiest of ways) just how many of my good friends are having babies this year, the year of the dragon. Is it coincidence or Was it planned? It's some of both. They all want babies anyway, and given it's the year of the dragon, a year that traditionally represents luck and prosperity, it's two eggs with one stone! I feel like I must be a little lucky because I'm going to be surrounded by dragon babies in just a matter of months.

Styled by Lara Hutton, this simple yet sophisticated nursery contains adorable wooden details throughout the room. I especially love the wooden artwork on the walls and the wooden cloud bookcases. Here are the details:

 

-‘Fawn’ figure, from Shelf/Life.

- ‘Babushka’ canvas, from Little Envelope.

I wish I knew about these fun designy temporary tattoos by Tattly before Easter because these bunny tattoos are so cute! Our little guy would've loved them, so I'm definitely getting some for next year. I love that they turned some popular designer prints into mini sized tattoos (especially Blanca Gomez's artwork!). Right now S is at the age where a sticker, a rubber stamp or a temporary tattoo makes him over-the-top happy!
