The holidays remind us of what is truly important… family, friends and LOVE! This is the time of year when engagements are a plenty and the excitement of wedding planning begins. Creating a wedding inspiration board is one of the best ways to get your wedding colors and style ideas out of your head and onto paper. Not to mention, that will make it much easier to convey your ideas to everyone, from your wedding planner to your cake baker. Minted’s new wedding inspiration board lets you create an inspiration board that captures your wedding style. To get started, choose a template — then fill it up with your favorite photos. And, Minted is currently running a weekly contest for Wedding Inspiration Boards until January 7th, with two weekly winners receiving a $200 credit towards their next Minted.com purchase.

It is so rare to receive a hand written letter these days, but we feel that we’d be doing our children a huge disservice if we didn’t encourage them to write letters to their friends and learn to appreciate the art of writing a letter (because the way things are going it may being come extinct). In order to encourage this long forgotten art, we are always on the look out for ways to encourage them to write and nothing could be as inviting and as the child-friendly as Letter Sets from Ginko Papers!
Kids will spend endless hours of weekend fun with all of the craft-friendly illustrated letter-and-envelope sets and stickers offered up by Ginko Papers. Back when you were a kid, stationery stores were probably all the rage. (Or was that just us?) These days, kids need a little extra encouragement to send a thank you note to Auntie Beth. These Letter Sets by Ginko Papers includes six sheets of paper, three glassine envelopes that fit 4×6 photos and four decorated clips, so kids can write small notes and even—gasp!—include a photo, too. What a novel idea!
In keeping with its Play, Think, Grow philosophy, the Sprout Kids furniture line is comfortable, interactive and eco-friendly. Crafted from MDF in kid-friendly snap-together pieces, these chairs, tables and book cases let kids discover their inner inventor—and reward them with fun furniture for their efforts.
Soon after receiving this modular kit, your children will have a table perfect for drawing, playing and working out school projects, plus two comfortable lightweight chairs. But what happens in between is the most exciting part. Designed to be easily assembled by kids (with no tools or hardware required), the Sprout Kids Table and Chairs snap together to encourage discovery, invention and exploration.
We are always looking for ways to encourage our kids to read and provide them a quite place to discover their favorite books. We absolutely fell in love this little closet that was transformed into the perfect reading nook!
The white paneling, accessible shelving, upholstered bench and vintage light fixture are the perfect combination… all we need to add is a cool curtain and this can transform into the greatest indoor fort for kids!
I remember being a kid and spending my days drawing animals and creatures from my imagination and wishing that they would come to life. Well fast-forward 30-something years (give or take) and I find a little version of myself sitting in the grass drawing the most beautiful creatures in her sketch book, but this time around, her drawings can come to life thanks to the talented hands of Child’s Own Studio.
Child’s Own Studio celebrates children’s art and their imagination with every handcrafted one-of-a-kind soft toy. Your child’s drawing, a wonderful expression of childhood, is the starting point of the collaborative project between your little artist and the dazzling talents of Wendy Tsao, who brings your child’s imagination to life.
So let them dream big, draw with passion and give your your child a gift all their own!
