It was a bit of a rainy weekend – perfect weather for doing some arts + crafts. I admit, I normally stick to the art side of things and have actually never really done a full on crafts project. That changed this Saturday!

My daughter and I made a garland for her room. The wall behind her bed was screaming out for some colour, so we got creative with some yarn and toilet paper rolls. Her room is the first photo…the ones below provided inspiration.

Kids Room: Artwork

Art is such a personal thing. As I’ve mentioned before, when I love a piece, I fall instantly. I’d choose any of these prints for my daughter’s room (in fact, I’ve already taken the plunge on a few):

Below: I bought Rachel Castle’s Bloom print for my daughter. I framed it in a simple white wood shadow-box frame. I picked up this piece long before I’d bought any furniture for our new place and I’m so happy that I did. It makes me smile whenever I look at it.

Above: Bloom, Zebra, and Happy Love prints by Rachel Castle.

Below: It’s hard to decide which print I like most by graphic designer and illustrator, Blanca Gomez. Here’s a peek of just a few that I love.

Above: Rain Prints for Garabat exhibit, New York print from the Illustrated Cities series, and an untitled print.

Below: As you might know, I have a soft spot for photography. And I’m not just talking about taking pictures. I’ve been sketching cameras in one form or another since I was a kid. So when I spotted these illustrations by Yellow Owl Workshop, I had to smile (and buy!).
