Games to Go Christmas Finds Christmas Gift Guide   wooden wonders

1- Wooden People Key Holder from Miss Bold Design- 

Our house is full of love and I bet yours is too. Never misplace your keys again with this gorgeous set of two wooden magnet people. Fiona, who is a fellow WA handmaiden, is flat out making the most amazing custom laser engraved goodies for your home and is well worth a look. She has some beautiful personalised Christmas tree ornaments too, but you have to be quick to get your order in before Xmas.

2- Handpainted Timber Block Set from Habitue Design- 

Kristy is an interior designer who makes handmade items for children and interiors, and these handprinted blocks really pop! I am a huge fan of blocks. Their simplicity and open ended play are so vital for a young child’s development. This set is so so bright and colourful, they would make a beautiful heirloom set to be passed from generation to generation.

3- Rainbow Gnomies from Folkwood - 

I swoon when i see the lovingly handmade items at Folkwood. Every piece Sandy makes at ‘The Folkery’ evokes such wonder and imagination, they are a perfect addition to any wee one’s toy box.

4- Love Birds necklace from One happy Leaf - 

Anna, like myself is a scientist by trade, but have both stumbled upon the wonderful world of the handmade. She makes the most lovely laser cut jewellery which are uncomplicated with clean minimalistic lines. I think most women we know would be more than happy with a piece or two in their stockings this Christmas

Did you see Day 8– gorgeous monochrome for the nursery?


Christmas Gift Guide – monochrome finds for baby

Welcome to Day 8 of our Christmas Gift Guide series. Today we have the lovely Lil HipStar with her funky Monochrome discoveries for baby. What a great selection of goodies for the nursery.

1- Fitted Cot Sheet from Pappiyon

2- Star Mobile from Stef Collections

3- Baby Crib Quilt from Alphabet Monkey

4- I love you to the Moon and back Wall Print from Mint Imprint

 These products are perfect to complete any modern baby/toddler room.  I love the neutrality of the current trend of the black and white baby scheme making it usable for a boy or girl or even a second child.

Laura launched her label Lil Hipstar in September 2013 as a creative outlet to pursue while caring my my first child Oliver.“When Oliver was born I just couldn’t find the funky, hip baby blanket that I was looking for. I wanted something a little different. Before having my son Oliver, I was a full time architect. When Oliver was born with a congenial skull condition called craniosynostosis, I knew that returning to the corporate work would probably not be possible with a lot of doctors appointments to attend.” This was a turning point and a great opportunity to have the best of both worlds: caring for Oliver, and designing and creating fun exciting things for other babies that just weren’t available for us!

Laura chose her business name after considering lists and lists of names, and discussing them with neighbours, friends and family. She chose Lil Hipstar to portray the spirit of Melbourne, the funky little generation of kids. Laura lists her creative inspiration as “a constant passion for wanting to make, create and design”. She says, “For me, designing and making things has been an integral part of my life for as long as I can remember. The next step in Lil HipStar’s life is to start designing and printing our all of our own fabric designs. I think this will add an extra special touch to our product range.”
Laura works with all kinds of fabrics, but “My favourite colours and style combinations at the moment are geometric black and white. I love the simplicity of monochrome and the gender neutrality”.
