Yesterday we met with our new favorite accessory designer Mimi Tsang of Hello Shiso. The company started in 2010 with Mimi assembling each product personally by hand & has since flourished! We are in love with Hello Shiso designs. These accessories serve as the perfect addition to the little ladies outfit! We couldn’t resist and had to buy some for Eunice’s baby Imogen who is modeling her new Hello Shiso clips below! Check out these sweet heart shaped bobby pins, just in time for Valentines Day!

Eunice’s baby girl Imogen was born on August 16th of this year. For the birth announcement, Eunice went for a hand-illustrated approach for the main, and drew inspiration from our sunshine stationery for the french/chinese insert. She used printstagram for the photo. Printstagram is an awesome service that prints your instagram photos on little squares and ships them to you within the week! We are all smitten with the outcome of this birth announcement!
Just before Imogen was born, we were lucky enough to squeeze in a family photo shoot with the AMAZING Leah McCormick…
We just got the photos back this week, and I couldn’t resist sharing them – Leah did such a fabulous job capturing our family (and all accompanying silliness)…
The shoot was so relaxed and fun that even my husband Daniel, who is usually a bit grumbly about being made to participate in such shenanigans, had a great time – and was super pleased with the results…
Love her sense of composition and the way she captures light and color!
You would never guess that I was incredibly exhausted and quite whale-ish at the time!
Leah does beautiful wedding photography as well – check out her work at www.byleah.com!
This past weekend Eunice gave birth to a beautiful little girl, Imogen Hope James. Mother and baby are doing fantastic and big brother Jude is already in love with his little sister.
Congratulations to Eunice and Daniel! Together Eunice and Sabrina have 4 boys — the Hello!Lucky team is so happy to finally have a sweet little girl to spoil and dote on!
Welcome to the world Imogen!
Eunice, our co-founder and creative director, is due to have her baby this week and it’s been really fun to see her pull together her baby girls nursery. We’re loving Eunice’s nursery style and would’t mind moving in ourselves. She’s still working on the final pieces and waiting for everything to arrive but we wanted to share the cuteness already in place.
Links below to where Eunice sourced everything in her nursery: Crib, Changing Station, Dresser, Chandelier from ebay, Bedding, Changing Pad Cover, Atsuo et Akikio Pillow, Mobile (to come), Rocker (on it’s way).
There’s a lot of speculation around what the Duchess of Cambridge will plan for her pregnancy, birth and beyond. When it came to planning my own baby shower for my daughter Sienna last year, I decided to splash out and get cake and cookie expert Peggy Porschen to create some cookies and a cake in my chosen theme, which was owls. The results were adorable as you can see from these snapshots. I furthered the colour theme with pink balloons and was lucky to receive the cutest gifts including three Jellycat soft toy owls!
If you’re looking for ideas for your baby shower, take a look at what Hello!Lucky have on offer: super cute printable invitations and free (yes free) DIY template and instructions for creating your own pom-poms made out of cupcake liners! Your house or venue is sure to look cute with these hanging up for any type of celebration.
Coming back to Kate and an imaginary baby shower for her, if I was sister Pippa, I would have a tea party in the garden at Kensington palace, I’d fill it with pretty vintage tea sets from Idyllic Days and funky flowers by Wild at Heart. Catherine’s friends would eat strawberries and cream flavoured mini red velvet cupcakes from The Hummingbird bakery and walk away with goodie bags filled with personalized cookies from Biscuiteers and smellies from the Cowshed.
Also, once the baby arrives be sure to check out Hello!Lucky’s birth announcements, they’re so sweet. Scott’s giraffe design was from their main collection and Sienna’s owl was a special custom design that Eunice Moyle was kind enough to create for us.
Happy birth and celebrations to you all!

How clever are these Wee Gallery Dress Up animal cards? As stationers it’s sometimes a challenge to come up with designs that can be suitable for both kids and adults, but these cards definitely bridge that gap. We love the simple and painterly illustrations and the thought of kids customizing these card for a friend or sibling. So sweet! The Wee Gallery definitely has a knack for kids, and their focus on making “smart art for little minds” is brilliant. Getting kids to channel their creativity at a young age is a great way to inspire new ideas and we’ve got to give props to Wee Gallery for contributing.
They also just released a book to go along with the clever cards! It would be a great stocking stuffer or gift for kids (oh, and did we say this is fun for adults too?!) We can probably come up with 32 ways to dress up a pig, bunny, and fox. Can you?
Visit the Wee Gallery website for more awesome kid-spiration!
Watch out crewcuts, these images from Marimekko’s kids collection are reaching the top of the cute chart. It’s not unusual that we are caught wishing kids clothing came in adult sizes, but once we see those little bodies show off those fashionable threads, they’re definitely making a spot on our wish list. Marimekko has always inspired us with their colorful patterns and bold decor, but now that we’re seeing more of them in our every day lives, we’re even more in love.
And with all the little boys in our H!L family, we’re obsessing over their toy car illustrations. Who wouldn’t want to trek that backpack to the first day of school next year!?
We’re all still giddy about the birth of Sabrina’s third baby, William. She had favorite photographer Sarah Wert of Modern Kids Photography capture the exciting first moments as a family of five and they turned out just beautifully. James and Alex waited so patiently for the arrival of their baby brother, so this photo of them is just perfect. We love how Sabrina decorated the nursery with colorful wall decals from Gosh and Golly, too.
Sabrina was sure to spend some quality time with the twins before the baby was born. Reading some of their favorite books is a great way to relax together, and offered some photo-worthy moments for Sarah. They also got a little playful by blowing up balloons for the big arrival.
William is too precious! We can definitely see the resemblance to his brothers.
We are so happy for Sabrina and her family. Thanks to Modern Kids for the beautiful photographs!
This image has spread like wildfire on Pinterest. There’s something magical about a child’s imagination, and the playfulness of a simple drawing. Child’s Own Studio has been turning those imaginative doodles and drawings into real life toys since 2007 and we are completely in love.
The creator and master softie-maker Wendy takes time to incorporate every detail, from each finger and toe to every scribble of the nose.
This is the kind of gift that stays with a child for a lifetime, so we encourage parents, family friends, and all to invest in this one-of-a-kind toy. Currently Wendy is booked, but visit this list of other Softiemakers for your order. Congratulations to Child’s Own on all the success!
