We spotted this DIY for some colorful geometric favor boxes {by the girls of HEYLOOK for Ruffled} and me instantly taken aback. Aren’t they gorgeous?! They’ve provided a downloadable template for all the different shapes, so anyone can make these at home.

Sharilyn of Lovely Design has set the goal of designing her daughter’s birthday invitations every year. She’s clearly a talented graphic designer — but it’s what she did with the invites AFTER the birthday that really caught our attention. Sharilyn framed four birthday invites and created a unique decor piece for her growing girl’s room.

This photo wall arrangement, using inexpensive IKEA frames, from Charla Anne Photography {found via Laura Winslow Photography} is another great inspirational idea for displaying your photos and using them as wall decor. You could do something similar in the nursery, or any room in the house.

It’s been too long since we shared a cool teepee. And this indoor tent from 101 Woonideeen, a home and living site from The Netherlands, is great inspiration for any mama who may be thinking of making one for here tot. It even has a little chimney!

A handmade robot pillow ($25), like this one from Etsy seller Little Korboose, is a fun addition to a boy’s room or nursery — and the price is pretty darn good.

    Nice pics. I am totally clueless about Pinterest and am excited to learn about it and how I can use it.. Thanks for sharing.

    • @Stephanie, Pinterest is like an online cork board, where you “pin” images from the internet that you love. You can sort all of your pins into different boards for easy access to all of your inspirational images. Do you need an invite? We can send you one!
