We love painting, colouring and drawing. Little beeniebud is only 2 years but loves her work to be showcased for other friends and familes members to see ( she gets it from her mama!). So I do have a special wall for her art. I was introduce to a lovely brand called something we made. Create, Share and Frame. Besty (the lovely founder), has come up with a great way of kids to be super creative and share their best work in a bespoke frame. The frames are a lovely classic white, blank paper, shape mount and a cut out shape. All we need to do was supply the paints, or colouring pencils.

We went with straw blowing painting and finger painting, there was lots of laughter and smiles. Once our artwork was dried, little beeniebud was very happy with her final display and in her framed intial ‘S’. If you would like your own something we made frames, is available here.

Thanks something we made x


new brand:: seventy tree





The love of graphic will never leave our sides…we are super happy to have a new brand called Seventy Tree. These playful illustrations are created by Kerry Layton. Again simple but a fab feature to have on your wall. The prints range in sizes A4 to A3, printed on smooth, archival paper with archival inks. All the prints comes signed on the back, and ready for framing. We love british home grown designs! 

Available here

we love books…


jonathan and martha book

Little beeniebud loves books and she was given some lovely books as a gift. We have read them about 20 times over and we still have giggles when we read our favourite parts from the books. Here is our selection below, enjoy!

1. Jonathan & Martha by petr horacek

A funny story about two worms Jonathan and Martha that are both lonely at first but learn to share and create a lovely friendship at the end! Eye- catching illustration and collage pages, a classic story that teaches children and adults about the importance of sharing.

me and my cat book

2. Me and My Cat by Ekaterina Trukhan

A fab heat-warming story which shows a very special friendship with a little girl and her cat. Lovely Illustrations and a great bedtime story.

faces book

3. Faces by Goodman & Miller

We are huge fans of the Miller Goodman FaceMarkers and ShapeMakers, and to have this book is amazing! It was fun trying to work what was used for the faces. It involved lifting flaps, looking through holes or turning the book upside-down. Hours of fun.

a walk in london book

4. A walk in London by Salvatore Rubbino

A delightful way to illustrated the City Of London. A little girl and her mother are spending the day in London and its a whirlwind tour of London’s most iconic land marks. We had fun guess the land marks. We shall be going a London Town tour very soon : )

Happy reading with your little ones x
