Manon is an illustrator from the Netherlands who was born with a pencil in her hand ;)
She loves drawing about the little things, because they tend to be the big things. Her favorite colors are pink-red and mintgreen, her hair changes color a lot, her favorite food is pizza and she has a black cat named Angus. Well, so nice to meet you Manon from La Nonette. We think her work is GORGEOUS! And her favorite colors are ours as well..

You can see more work on her website and she sells work in her LaNonette shop on Etsy.

Let’s play with shadows! For this mini editorial I (Leontine) had my favorite models Abel and his best girlfriend Jaimie.

I wanted to create shadows on the background, so we used black cardboard to cut out figures like birds and cat’s. We stuck them on a straw or stick and created shadow puppets! :)

Let’s introduce to you.. Fifi! She is the most stylish bunny we’ve ever seen, wearing all the newest designers clothing! The story is that she was to only one of all her 257 brothers and sisters to survive a terrible outbreak of myxomatosis when she was only one year old. Since that happened, her parents are very protective of her and can’t help but spoil her. A lot. Being the hare-ss of her fathers fortune, which he made fast and loose with carrot and lettuce shares on the international stock market, she can afford quite a bit of a stylish and fashionable lifestyle.

She has her own fashion blog, where she shares her daily outfits and the latest fashion trends. Also, you can get some lovely prints of Fifi and the cutest brooches in her shop. Take a look into the wonderful world of this furry fashionista!

During the MAGNIFIQUE shoot at Radio Royaal a few weeks ago, I (Hanneke) took a lot of extra shots and we thought it might be nice to give you a peek behind the scenes. It was such a nice day – lots of fun!

Just for once, a post in Dutch on the blog. The product we are representing is (for now) only available in Dutch so it doesn’t make sense to blog in English about it. If this product will go international some day, we will be the first to let you know and tell you all about it! :)

Toen Annet me halverwege het ontwerpen van de Onder-je-kussen-kaartjes het concept uitlegde en vroeg of ik de fotografie wilde verzorgen voor dit mooie product werd ik (Hanneke) gelijk enthousiast!

Onder Je Kussen Kaartjes - www.petitloublog.com
Op een Onder-je-kussen-kaartje schrijf je tijdens het bedritueel wat je aan je kind waardeert en daarna leg je het onder het kussen, zodat hij/zij er letterlijk een nachtje op kan slapen en de woorden kunnen ‘inwerken’. Er is ruimte voor mooie woorden en een tekeningetje, en er staan prachtige quotes op. Waarschijnlijk weet je kind wel dat je van hem/haar houdt, maar het is goed om waardering en liefde uit te spreken! De Onder-je-kussen-kaartjes zijn een geweldig hulpmiddel om dit op een speelse manier te doen, samen met veel geknuffel en daarnaast een prachtig kleurrijk document voor later om eens terug te lezen.

Er staat al een doosje op Loek z’n kamer, en ik ga er met zijn eerste verjaardag mee beginnen. Sommige kaartjes zullen misschien moeten wachten tot later, maar volgens mij is het nooit te vroeg om op te schrijven en uit te spreken wat je aan je kind waardeert!

PSST; onderaan deze blogpost zie je hoe je een doosje Onder-je-kussen-kaartjes kunt winnen voor zowel jou, als een vriend(in)!

Wij mogen 2 doosjes Onder-je-kussen-kaartjes weggeven!

Positieve woorden mogen meer gezegd worden, tegen kinderen maar ook tegen onszelf!
Hoe kun je meedoen?

Tag een vriend(in) in de comments van onze facebook post,
en vertel waarom juist hij/zij zo bijzonder is, wat je aan hem/haar waardeert.

Wie weet winnen jullie allebei een mooi setje kaartjes om met jullie kindje(s) mee aan de slag te gaan!

Op woensdag 16 december laten wij weten wie de Onder-je-kussen-kaartjes krijgt toegestuurd!

EDIT: De winnaar is bekend!

Michelle de Batselier, gefeliciteerd!!
