Alain Grée

I purchased these cute blocks and matching box from Etsy seller Pomme de Jour. She lives in France and finds all sorts of fun vintage fabrics, books and bric-a-brac. She also makes things from her finds, like these blocks made from illustrations by French author and illustrator Alain Grée. You can read about him and see many of his illustrations on this website
Pomme de Jour has a blog, ebay shop and boutique (as well as her etsy shop) and often sells books and other Alain Grée items. Check it all out at

Monsters Rule!

I don't know why, but I have a thing for monsters. Cute ones, of course. A few years ago, I did a monster carved from an eraser and I made these cards.
Recently, I finished this Monster Matching Game featuring 12 different monsters. It was fun to do but really time consuming cutting out 24 squares for each game, laminating the squares, and cutting them out again. I also created a "meet the monsters" card with a description of each monster. For a few weeks, I was thinking up monster names.
The really cute green and blue monster figures were purchased from Etsy seller Happy Moon Belly. I sent Jennifer at Happy Moon Belly a picture of my original eraser stamp and she made a custom big green monster for me. The little blue guy with the heart was so cute, I couldn't resist him. You can see more of her monsters and beasties here. Both the monster cards and the game are available in my Etsy shop.
