Enamel Pins?!!

At some point during maternity leave my one-handed internet browsing led me to Gimme Flair. I was overcome by the desperate need to buy all the enamel pins, but somehow I refrained and redirected my energy into making my own.

I have a buttload of ideas for enamel pins, but I’m starting with just one to test the waters. I mean, I don’t want to fill my shelves with a zillion pins if nobody else wants them. I only have one jean jacket to fill after all. If my “lady power” uterus pin is a winner, you can expect to see a lot more Wit & Whistle pins in the near future!

New Mother’s Day Cards

Mother’s Day cards are in the shop! I have two new ones this year. One for your mom friends who are up to their necks in dirty diapers (me), and one for your mom now that you’re a grown up and appreciate her more for her friendship than for her butt wiping skills.

In other news I’m on snapchat, and I’m kinda loving it. At first I was totally confused, but my hip little sister gave me a tutorial. Now I’m posting completely uncurated photos and videos without caring if they look perfect together and fit my branding, because they disapear in 24 hours. It’s the social media where you can let your hair down. I feel so free.

My username is witandwhistle—come follow me or friend me or heart me or whatever snapchat calls it!

Maps

Have you ever ordered something online, and when it arrived it was a million times cooler than you expected? That’s how this book, Maps by Aleksandra Mizielinska and Daniel Mizielinski, was for me. I ordered it as a gift for a travel-loving friend who was expecting a new baby, and when it came I couldn’t stop looking through it and wishing I could keep it. The book is huge at 11″ x 15″, and it’s filled with page after page of intricate illustrations of countries around the world. It’s technically a children’s book, but any visually oriented adult would love it, so I had to share a snippet with you guys. I’m going to have to get my own copy!
