Selecting an Art Piece to Frame for The January Cure

art framing project hallway for january cure

Vintage-Inspired MP3 Player for Kids

Most kids don’t have any difficulty finding their way around tech devices, yet we probably wouldn’t let them out of sight with our phones or tablets.

Since small children can’t read, 9 buttons on the front encourage them to explore different sounds and content via color. Old school switch and volume controls are easy for small fingers to grasp.

A secure back panel houses a 2 GB memory card, batteries and any necessary wiring – no cords or cables for little hands to disconnect, or little mouths to chew on.

hörbert can also be personalized for gift giving with custom wood engraving on the front, and is a lovely way to promote some music appreciation among the little ones in your life.

I was delighted when the talented team at Canadian House & Home and Maison & Demeure asked me if I would like to create a photo gallery about my favorite spaces. This top-notch home decorating magazine is always on my must-read list.

When they asked me what would be my angle, I immediately thought about decorating with kids in mind. Ever since I became a mom, I experienced the challenges of maintaining a stylish home with a young child. I featured inspiring family-friendly spaces and shared kid-friendly decorating tips that are fun and cool.

In fact, I have two photo galleries: one gallery for  Canadian House & Home and another one for Maison & Demeure, the French edition of Canadian House & Home. Each site has their own editorial staff. They handpicked the photos that spoke more to their audience. I love the look of both galleries.

Do not miss them and have a look right now.
