Decorating Your Sneakers with Tattly

A few days ago I shared on my Instagram how my daughter felt inspired to decorate her white sneakers with Tattly. I can’t remember getting this many DMs with excitement and thumbs up. It’s super simple: Grab a hold of some fun small-ish Tattly and apply them, just like you would on your skin, but on your shoe. Make sure to cover the designs with a clear sealant or clear nail polish. Superfun! Boring sneakers no more!

There are many more Tattly DIY ideas on our blog.

The Carrot Project

Between April 2016 and January 2017 Martin Markstein carved daily carrots for his 4 year old son’s lunchbox. The initial intention was to make him eat the vegetables, but he apparently began to trade the carrots for “better“ food. One day he wanted that all the kids of his kindergarden group to get a carved carrot, too. So, of course, super dad that he is, Martin ended up carving 23 magic wands, arrows, bows and axes. This is stinking adorable. Also, lunchbox hero!
