I was in a new cafe just near my house today and they had one of these little dudes on the table. A gorgeous wooden bear for Big Bear Cafe. I was totally intrigued (it is awesome) and when I got home Googled the heck outta the internet until I located them!
The bears above are Ursa Minor, designed by David Weeks and available for sale on Tweek. The bears all have hardcore elastic connecting all their bits & pieces, so you can make them dance.
And yes, I know, I've been blogging a bit about cafes lately, but after 7 years of South-side decent cafe drought it's all very exciting having so many new cafes open. Carnegie is the new Brunswick street, y'all. You can take that to the bank.
Have you checked out the new kids range of cards yet? Not that I think the above card is just for kids, but I also designed a numbered range of cards.
I still have all my old birthday cards from when I was little little, but the only way I can tell which birthday they're all from is by the number on front, or if someone wrote the date inside! I think the little Fox for 2nd Birthdays is my fave... grab yours online here!

I have a favourite new cafe! I'm always insanely jealous of my friends who live in cafe hotspots like Balaclava, Brunswick or Fitzroy - my kingdom for a walking distance cafe! Well, now I have one. Spilt Milk is such a cute little place, you can tell the owner of it has had an awesome time fitting it out with custom built tables and cute shelving. I love the FAMILY letters - the whole thing reads 'Family: It's where your story begins.' Adorable!
Also adorable are the food names - everything is named after an animal! The cakes are the cutest as everything kinda resembles their animal name - wombats are fat chocolate cupcakes, and ladybug is a spotty raspberry cake. Too cute.
So, south-side, go check it out!
Spilt Milk: 288 Neerim Rd, Carnegie

My to-do list for the next few days involves writing up a teensy survey, organising a sale to say thank you for looking at said survey, and photographing a bunch of stuff. If you hear nothing by, say, Tuesday? pretend you are my manager and tell me off.
Also, yes, more baby cards! I have had that little phrase, 'and baby makes three', rattling around my brain for a few days. Possibly somebody came into work and said it, I can't remember! Anyway, I think it's the perfect first baby card. I studied a little mathematics at university. I'm glad I'm putting it to such good use: two parents and a baby do indeed make three.
