After months of enjoying the sun I don’t mind cocooning in autumn. It’s a great excuse to turn on the heat, grab a hot drink and to get some creative projects going. Recently I stumbled upon Ayako Kishi’s work and her squirrel illustrations with happy acorns brought a smile to my face. So when I discovered that she also offered free papercrafts, I just had to share them with you.
3D squirrel with maple leafs. Originally this set is intended for scrap-booking, but do any of you actually do that? I think it would be nice to stick the 3D squirrel on front of a booklet or to frame it.
3D hedgehog with mushrooms, also available in other colors.
This mobile would be great to hang in your room, it represents a family of squirrels who have completed their harvest. I think this project might keep you busy for an hour or two.
If you are looking for a smaller project, a squirrel ‘Thank You’ card might be just the thing for you. Or browse through her complete collection of free cute crafts from Ayako.
More of Ayako’s work can be found on her portfolio and website.
While browsing through the app store I stumbled upon a puzzle game called Fluffy Coffee. The easy gameplay and cute illustrations quickly won me over. The publisher turned out to be Fluffy House, a small company that creates adorable characters. Upon closer inspection I realized that I had seen some of their characters, such as Miss Rainbow and “I Am Okay”, already. While browsing through their shop I might have squealed a few times and I’m seriously considering to get my paws on an Ordinary Bear and Naughty Rabbit set.
Miss Rainbow loves little animals and likes to hang out with her pal called Little Raindrop.
Ordinary Bear takes care of others and you can often find him in his kitchen, where he prepares the best meals.
The Fluffy Coffee puzzle game is completely free and available for both Apple and Android. You help MR. White Cloud to take care of his shop and will earn wallpapers in return. It’s a relaxing and quick gameplay, so I can recommend it ^_^.
The character toys from left to right: Ordinary Bear, Mr. White Cloud, Chicky (comes with Miss Rainbow), Little Raindrop and Miss Rainbow. Not pictured here is the new “I AM OK” figure set, a collaboration with Bubi Au Yeung. You might know her from Treeson.
This is the Ordinary Bear and naughty Rabbit set. These toys will set you back $39.90 plus a small amount of shipping costs. I think they will be a great excuse to dust off my Re-ment (Japanese miniatures) collection. Oh and if you happen to be in the online Fluffy House Shop, have a look at the costumes section, those are so cute!
