golden book dress

This is amazing! A dress made entirely out of Golden Books. The skirt is all made from illustrations sewn together with metallic gold thread. The bodice is made from the books' foil spines. Below is some of the pictures of the process!

You can find more about the process here!

Simply Small dolls - totally cute!

Our author/illustrator Paola Opal just shared with us the work of one of her fans.
A mom, Courtney Fearon, whose 1 year old LOVES the simply small series, decided to create fabric dolls of the characters for her daughter's birthday.
She started with Totty and Dotty's bird because those are her daughter's favorite characters. She also created Dotty and Perry, too!
Saffy and Ollie are in the works!

day dreams

This is beautiful and inspiring.

While her baby is taking her nap, Adele Endersen creatures scenes around her and takes quick snap photos. She makes sure each photo takes only a few minutes, as she doesn't want to disturb her sleeping! As she says, "I'd like to see into your dreams, my little girl." There is a video of all her images posted on her blog.
