We came across this dreamy shop from Thibodaux, LA, United States, earlier this week and we had to share Nichol's work!


"I like to make characters that feel like they come from a very specific place, and reflect how I think childhood should feel: full of wonder, joy and delight. The mission of Pink Cheeks Studios is to bring whimsy into people’s lives! I delight in sending quirky little guardians out there into the world to watch over wee ones."


Our favorite item is this Multicultural bunnies mobile.


She can even customize the dolls to be personalized and look like you, your familly and friends in her own quirky style. The perfect gift!

Christmas may be a bit close for deciding on the decorations but we really had to share this!
A wonderful Christmas tree by Cardboard Christmas! Lovely decoration and an Eco-friendly solution.

Kristi Tamming is a graphic designer - multitasker, working in Tallinn of Estonia.
The cardboard tree is made out of recycled cardboard paper and it's flat-packed so it can be easily shipped and stored. 
A must have for alternative Christmas decoration enthusiasts!







Ingredients
  • 250gr. Digestive  biscuits
  • 100gr Butter
  • 100gr Cream (thickened 35% milk fat)
  • 100 gr Sugar
  • 200gr  Dark chocolate
  • 175 gr Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 
  • Whip cream and dark chocolate flakes for decorating (optional)


Directions

Break the biscuits in small pieces into the blender and blend. Mix the blended digestive biscuits with the butter in a bowl and knead to prepare a dough.

Place a sheet of  baking paper on a baking tray of approximately 26cm diameter. We used a heart shaped baking tray.
Press the mix on the bottom and sides of the tray to create the base.

Bake the ceesecake base for 8 minutes on 200 degrees C (390 degrees F).
After it's done, let it simmer and the base is ready.

Beat the egg white with the sugar to create a light meringue.
Meanwhile melt the chocolate and create a whip beating the milk cream. 

In a different bowl, beat the egg yolk adding the cream cheese and the vanilla extract.
Continue beating adding the melted chocolate and  the cream whip.

Finally, add the light meringue in the bowl gradually and mix lightly to create your chocolate cream.
Fill the base with the chocolate cream and spread to become even.

For the topping: 
Grind dark chocolate and decorate with dots of whip cream or any other topping you like.

Last but not least, enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea and share with your loved ones!

We love packaging!  We took some time to take shots of our packaging routine, today. It's a proccess that means a lot to us as while packing we can picture the moment the shoes get unpacked and tried on for the first time.

FLOURISH is a personal project by Dana Tanamachi.
The artist got inspired from fabric patterns to create this breathtaking work of art.


In her own words:
 " I had a dream of drawing all over a dark-colored wall with gold paint pens—the metallic sort that ignites when the sun hits it just right, and recesses when in shadow."

Eugene Plotnikov is a young, amazingly inspirational graphic designer from Melbourne, Australia.
We first saw his work on Tumblr and we immediately fell in love with his whole aesthetic: lines, colors and the horror -psychedelic concept of his art.

Here's a collection of my favorite!
