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        

Idea for Auction Item at Your Kids School Fundraiser

Hi all, So as you know I have two kids and am the mom who tries to find the best way to help at my kids school where it is A. something I will enjoy and B. something that I can actually do! As you can guess I am generally recruited around the time that we need to make something cute for our auction that the kids make. I have made lots of different things over the years and some with success and others without. This one was the most successful and relatively easy. I create an ABC poster using the kids self-portraits and working them into all the letters of the alphabet. Sometimes you have to get creative with which letter of the child’s name fits where, but not impossible 🙂 1. The project requires I go to my child’s class with a stack of blank printer paper and ask that the teacher have markers or crayons for the kids to use to draw themselves. 2. I ask each child to make a self-portrait …

Maddie’s festive home

Maddie: 8 years old & Natalie showing off their houses. What inspired your lille huset? I wanted it to be bright and happy. What is your favorite part? The lookout tower on top. I taped a plate to the house and made a spot for my dolls to see everything in my room. Oh, and it is also a swing if you need to get down extra fast. Is there anything else you want to tell us? Um, yes, that my friend Esme showed me how to make the folded shades. When she came over she couldn’t wait to show me how to make them. What do you want to be when you grow up? A teacher.

Feature Friday: Lydia’s Lille Logan Huset

Lille Huset camp was so much fun! One of the campers, Lydia, designed and decorated the Lille ‘Logan’ Huset, a sprawling Logan Square inspired greystone that included an indoor garden, glittery trim, and a colorful braided rug in the front room that really tied everything together. Lydia also colored a paper doll of herself so she could enjoy her house even more. To make the paper doll, we converted her picture to black and white, resized so that Lydia was about 6 inches tall and printed it on card stock. We used Photoshop, but most imaging programs should work too. Feel free to share your Lille Huset designs with us! We’d love to see what you come up with!
