Creative Kids Round up!

Over the course of the year, I LOVE getting emails from proud parents with photos of their kids houses. I love seeing their creativity in all of the handmade details. I have been gathering them up and can’t wait to show off: Lille Huset Round up 1: “Sarah’s Sweet & Stylish Abode”, my favorite part of this house… UM, the fact that she included her little sister as her paper doll!! Thank you Maria! House Round up 2: “Issy’s Cozy Mouse Lounge House”, my favorite part is the horse laying next to the sofa while the mouse has a nap! Thank you Jaime for the photos! If you want to share you photos just email us and you will also get a coupon from us for 50% off on our sites. xxoo
