7 bookplates for kids

I love books. That probably comes as no surprise really. Books give us the opportunity to live multiple lives within our own relatively short existence. They give us the ability to be things we’d never otherwise be. Within the pages of a book is magic so strong that it can conjure whole worlds in our minds. And that is pretty cool.

Books make the best presents. I give them to my nieces in the hopes that they’ll grow to share the same love I have for the written word. I inscribe them (when I remember to) because I think that’s a cool touch. I know that some people think marking books is a bit sacrilegious, but hey, each to their own.

If you want to go a different route bookplates are ideal. There are so many cute ideas to choose from too. Read more books everyone!

Colouring in fun for Easter

It’s Good Friday which means I get to spend the morning with family at our annual Good Friday breakfast. With lots of kids around it can be hard to keep everyone occupied which is why having a crafty thing (or two) up our collective sleeves is always a good thing.

Colouring in is always a good way to pass the time. Here are a few Easter themed colouring in pages to keep your little ones (or big ones) occupied.

Office Inspiration #12

I have a thing for dark walls and grey scale. I think it works in this space because there is so much natural light. What do you think about this office space? Are you a fan of dark walls too?
