We’re sharing some pretty bouquet ideas from Sweet Paul Magazine on our wedding blog today, so we thought it would be fun to pick a favorite craft idea from the zine (of which there are TONS), that would be great for the kiddos. This paper craft idea takes coloring books to a very awesome, and more interactive level.
Coloring is an easy way to keep kids entertained for an hour or so, but print out these fun little scenes to have them color AND build, and you’ve got maybe the whole night taken care of.
Such a genius idea, no? They can color, cut, build, then play in their little makeshift paper city… for hours. Great activity for when you’re stuck indoors too! Download your printables here.

We have a lot in common with Chandra of Oh Lovely Day. She’s the founder of a wedding blog, she’s got great taste in decor, and she’s currently trying to raise two boys in the insane heatwave that’s hitting LA. She’s a supermama that we’re so excited to share with you. We couldn’t pick just her maternity or newborn photos, sooo we’re sharing a bit of both, thanks to Jennifer Roper. We’re sure you won’t mind!
That’s Charlie. What a little stud, right?
And then Charlie met his best friend for life, Calvin. It was love at first sight. P.S. Follow their lil’ adventures on Instagram. They’re the cutest.
Chandra is sharing more peeks inside Calvin’s nursery on Oh Lovely Day today, so pop on over and say hi for us!

We spent a little time perusing Rebecca Siewart’s site and fell in love with her style of photography. Obviously her gorgeous subjects, like this mama-to-be help, but there’s such a calming vibe in every image that’s so refreshing to see.
