{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2016} InkheArt love

This Christmas you do not have to look any further for a gift for your favourites because the beautiful Inkheart has you covered.

I am so in love with the whimsical world of Inkheart and the very talented Mahlah. She is talented and lovely, creative and brilliant. mahlah

In my daughter’s room there is a beautiful print I got from Inkheart  and I am so happy to know that this is probably the last thing she looks at each and every night.

Mahlah is incredibly talented and she offers not only ready made prints but also custom orders.

What is super exciting is the new collaboration between Inkheart and Sharp Art called MK Designs

This collab literally oozes cool. MK Designs offers a range of Abstract prints and cushions that are just begging for a special place in your home. mk-designs

{Raising Little People} 10 Questions to ask your kids about their art

Maybe one day, Confucius say: Hell hath no fury like a toddler who catches you disposing of their artwork.

The little people with their mighty egos often believe that each and everyone of their artworks is capable of competing with the Mona Lisa or The Birth Of Venus however when you find yourself submerged with the 76th-hundred drawing of a stick for the day it is hard to remember that each artwork often has it’s own story and that there is often a reason behind their ‘creative genius’.

We found this fabulous article that suggests 10 Questions To Ask Your Child About Their Art. It is definitely worth a read.

10 questions

One day the little birdies will no longer create simply for the fun of it, nor will they honestly believe that each one is the finest one ever created, so take the time, ask the questions and explore the magic of your little one’s mind.

Happy parenting Nesters x

{The Nest Home} We need to chalk..

We are totally thinking about getting a blackboard wall in the toddler-bird’s room.

Yes, I am aware of the total mess that chalk can cause, and the hubby-bird does have a serious concern that it will teach baby-bird to draw on walls, but it just looks so damn cool.

Plus, I am convincing myself using the Picasso theory of life that ‘all children are artists’.

What do you think? Could it work? Do you have one? Am I just being completely ridiculous and lining up for a big fat regret?

{The Nest Loves} Eat. Drink. Chic.

Holy guacamole batman – cancel your plans for today.

I am so cereal.

I am about to show you the best way to waste re-spend your day.sweet_calendar_01d

Please let me introduce you to the VERY talented and completely generous Amy Moss from Eat Drink Chic. She has a completely pimpin’ website that just consumes me.

It is pretty and special and delightful. Best of all it is guaranteed to make you smile.


Amy is a graphic designer who loves all things gorgeous and actually creates (and shares for completely un-co design peeps like me) free printables to make your stuff look good. It is great to see someone so clever, doing so well.


Cheers to Ms Moss for being the bees knees.

You might actually see your fridge again after reading this!



People are clever. Especially the people who created Keepy.

If you are anything like our family you probably have not seen the colour of your fridge since the moment you chose to become a parent. It starts slowly, an ultrasound photo. Baby name idea list. Hospital details. Birthday photo. First smile. Then before you know it you are hanging pictures of scribbles and spit bubbles.

Enter the geniuses at Keepy. They have created an app which allows you to take photos of your darling children’s artwork (and other create displays – playdough house, block stack etc) and upload them into a gallery to keep forever.

Simply brilliant in my books.
