Lunch at the Cool Kid's Table

I know that we just celebrated the USA's birthday, but guess what....back to school is just around the corner! Get a jump start on those supplies and find some great looking gear for your kiddos. You can begin with these darling Lunch Bags by Olive Kids. Olive Kids was created by parents for parents with an emphasis on color and fun. These lunch bags are a great example of the whimsy and quality of Olive Kids. They're a deal at $19.99 each. Be sure to check out the matching backpacks.

All Mixed Up

Have you had one of those days lately? You know, one of those days where you think you'll start getting a little artsy? Why not start channeling your inner artist and start today. A great way to get into art is by working with mixed-media. You can incorporate your scrapbooking stuff (you know EVERYONE has some!) and a lot of things just lying around the house. A great book to get you started is Printmaking + Mixed Media: Simple Techniques and Projects for Paper and Fabric. Start with a few of these techniques and before you know it, you've started making your own way!

Divine Danita

Divine is what comes to mind when I see Danita's beautiful artwork. This Mixed-Media artist never fails to inspire happiness in all of her endeavors. THE MUSICIAN, a original Mixed Media Art Doll is no exception! Danita is one of my favorite artists. Her work includes layers upon layers of papers and such that create a depth of whimsical style. Once you start collecting her work, you'll be hooked! Be sure to check out her Etsy shop HERE

Xenia, Crewel and Loving It

If you've ever built a new house or remodeled your current abode, then you know how mind-numbingly boring tile shopping can be. Most tile shops feature the same things. How in the world can you create a unique room with stuff like everyone else? You want something hand-made. You want something gorgeous. You want something like Xenia Taler. Her hand made tiles will make a masterpiece of your backsplash. Tiles such as her Large Bird (CW07BRD $108) from her Crewel Intentions line will absolutely be a show stopper!
