Daddy's Choice

added 29th October 2012

The other day my friend found out that she is having a baby boy in February much to everyone’s excitement as she already has a little girl. And as she now knows the sex of the baby she naturally wants to start decorating the nursery. She told me that as the baby is a little boy, her husband would be choosing the art for his room. I looked at her with my mouth open and a look on my face as if to say ‘ARE YOU SURE....?!’.  Is it just me or is there anyone else out there who struggles to hand over the reins to your partner in decorating decisions? Or am I just a complete control freak?!

Anyway, it all turned out well for her because her husband decided on our super cool Pirate Ship design by Ian Cunliffe (which incidentally is my husband’s favourite design so perhaps I should have a little more faith!!).



Ps. You can buy Pirate Ship by Ian Cunliffe here.

Ever taken a close look at the sweet little characters on that packet of Organix tomato puffs before passing them to your toddler? Well next time you do, be in the knowledge that this bunch of cuties were illustrated by none other than our very own Happy Spaces artist Caroline Jayne Church! Caroline’s goodies gang can be found on all Organix snacks for babes and toddlers and are the lead stars in the goodies gang commercial. Nice one Caroline! The goodies gang even have some fun activities prepared to play with your little one such as cute colouring in sheets and a jigsaw - take a peak here.
