News are coming to Tellkiddo

Inspired by our kiddos play, we will soon roll out our new designs together with a completely new storage solution. Here are two of the new designs, BOOKS as voted for on Instagram (best community ever) and the big bag PLAY. Both are created with our own drawn playful bold font.

Birthday coming up - DIY

Sam is soon 4 years old, when he was around 6 months, Tellkiddo was born so that means that Tellkiddo is soon also 4 years old. Times fly and it's amazing how much these years has changed our life. We moved to a slow living lifestyle away from the stressful main city two years ago (even if I can miss it sometimes) it feels right now like the right thing to give our kids. But this move has also been a big sacrifice as we don't see our friends so much any more even if many of them come and visit us during the summer, its not the same thin…

Update from the boys new room

Somedays I feel that I have not done or accomplished anything, but when I think about it I have done so much anyway, this day is one of those days. Working before lunch in the new office (so nice to have an office nowadays) and after that an inspiring session about e-commerce and social media.Also today it´s valentines, we dont celebrate this day much in our family, giving love everyday is more important I think, but the boys got a sweet card from their grandma in the post box and some sweet new stuffies came from Main Sauvage for a comin…

Happy Valentines

Writing this from the car driving home from visiting family in south of Sweden (I´m not the one driving ;). Anyhow, I together with Sam did some valentine cards this morning while waiting on the cousins to arraive. Tiny hands are the cutest and found this idea over at Lobster and Swan who was inspired by Katryn Zaremba. Sam thought it was a fun idea as he always want me to trace his hand on a paper for him to color later. So pen, papers and some clue made this easy cards for him to give to those he loves.Happy Valentines!

Room makeover and a box bed

As the winters are so long in Sweden and the sun disappears already at 3pm, we decided to do a makeover of the boys room, take away my beloved dark blue wallpaper and do a lighter room. We are not totally done with the room yet ( I don´t ever get that feeling in any room of the house, we change stuff all the time, to the joy of my husband...). But now its more or less done, stlll having that clean and new feeling. You know, before the invasion of chaos and mayhem (Sam and Micha).So bye bye blue wall: The paint we used is from Auro, an eco…

Paper Birds - DIY

Thought I was going to give you a small DIY tip, I made this for a photoshoot but it has become one of my favorite decor details in the kidsroom. Took some time to make, but with a little help of Youtube, how to fold the birds, it was pretty simple to make many. I used colors of the paper I tought would match together and it turned our pretty well. Here are some pictures from when we made them, used in this seasons photoshoot but also in the boys bedroom as a small detail. /Maria

Birthday prep

It´s time to prep for birthday in this house again. I don´t remember where I found this treasury idea, but a combination with birthday celebration this feels so right as birthday invitations for our friends far away. Hope you also like it./Maria
