Make: Peter Rabbit Favors

by Cat on January 30, 2013

It was a lot of fun to read the Further Tale of Peter Rabbit at the Stanford babyGap a few days ago. This was to help celebrate the very fine and fresh Gap Peter Rabbit baby collection. Zilla was on hand to sample their refreshment table which I thought had some really great favor and easter party ideas. Ok, so the fresh carrots did get a bit neglected in light of the giant sour gummy worms but all of it was adorably presented…

Little Houses…

by Cat on January 29, 2013

Do any of you sometimes find yourself unintentionally going the whole week posting up posts with the same family of colors? This month I’ve been thinking in batches of colors for a slew of designs that we’re working on in the studio and wonder if they are finding their way into the posts. These lovely peach, taupe gray and seafoam creations happen to be in my current bookmarks: Vintage Bear Poster by Zu,  Coq and Pate pencil cases, Little Painted Houses by Rodica, You’re a Peach print by TooManySuitors and Vintage Seashells Print.

Being eclectic pays off… And that’s just what Louise Baltruschat sets out to express in her UK blog  Whimsical Wonderland Weddings. Bree at the studio had a chance to ask her some questions about being a mom of a 2 year old and running a wedding blog:

About ~ UK Wedding Blog ~ Whimsical Wonderland Weddings

Tell us about a day in your life

” On a day where A is at nursery and G is at work,  I get up and get us ready and drop A off at nursery. I reply to emails, log into Facebook and Twitter and [then] spend my time preparing blog features. [All this]before picking up A at lunch time and having a lunch break, before popping back onto the computer to reply to any more emails that may have cropped up. In the afternoon, I  turn back into mummy-mode.  If G is off work though , I may work through the afternoon, preparing my own photography for the blog or crafting for DIY tutorials too.”

What is your favorite part of being in the wedding business?I love hearing from couples, couples that are super happy and in love. I adore helping couples in their wedding planning and there is nothing better as a wedding blogger than blogging a Whimsical Wonderland Weddings reader’s wedding.

 How does being a Mom help you to prioritize in all aspects of life?

I think i am quite productive, as I know I have to have set times for work and for being a mum. Prioritizing is tricky, but to be productive it is something I must do. I like to think i am pretty organized and always try to have weekends off with A.  A schedule and routine is a must for me.

You have had an extraordinary amount of success  and growth in less than a three year time span. How do you keep up?

Ahh thank you. Honestly, I don’t know hehe! I have to manage my time and ensure I book time out at the weekends to keep the balance. I try to work when G is off work in the week or when A is at nursery. The lovely thing about working from home is being able to do both, working and being a stay at home mum.  Organization and scheduling really is key. I love being a blogger so it is fun keeping up.

Happy Friday: Succulent Egg

by Cat on January 25, 2013

Tell me you hear me when I say that the words “egg” and “succulent” bring comfort and joy to the heart. This is a gorgeous, sweet DIY that I saw on Pinterest last night that is all natural goodness. Sorry that it is in Japanese, but I think the pictures tell a good enough story on how to create these on their own.  Have a happy Friday and weekend everyone!
