Mr. Bean returned today! He was greeted with squeals of excitement – and this year he brought with him his own cardboard brownstones Mer Mag style housing!!! He has good taste.

This year, Mr. Bean arrived with a note that said the kids could touch him! He requested to be put to bed each night on a sofa in one of the brownstones, and stated that he would move each day to a new location, but it was safe to always move him back to his housing. On the days he doesn’t move – that means the kids have been naughty!

In september we partied it up and celebrated the launch of the immensely talented Merrilee Liddiard’s brand new children’s craft book Playful. I have admired Merrilee’s talents for years – she did the illustration for my cheerleader valentine a couple of years ago. Her illustrations are beautiful, and her style for children’s playtime ideas – absolutely genius!

If you are interested in making the duct tape cardboard brownstones – all of the instructions + a template can be found in her book! FYI: these three duct tape cardboard brownstones were so fun to make, but they do take time. It took me a handful of late nights and two all nighters over the past six weeks to get them finished. With that said, I absolutely love them and I KNOW they will get played with every day this month for HOURS. And, we will keep them for a long time to come – I am sure they will get re-decorated all the time. Thank you for the brilliant ideas, Merrilee! xo.
