Featured :: Bikbik & Roro

This post is crazy long over due. Back in July my friend Janice over at Bikbik & Roro sent me the sweetest package. It included this cute little guppy pin that I absolutely adore! And she included some fun stuff for my girls (stickers - which my youngest still loves to collect) and a ghostlet postcard. 

She makes each pin by hand with recycled heavyweight paper and fabric, and a lot goes in to each one. She mounts them on thick illustration board and painstakingly hand cuts, paints, sands and varnishes each one to make these cuties. But then all her wonderful items in her shop are such wonderful handmade items like her soft toys and tabby cat totes. Check out her shop!

It was back in July when I sent two of my beaded fish to two big sisters over in Singapore that were expecting a baby brother. Yes, Janice has a beautiful new baby in her family. And even in her last weeks of pregnancy, she was so organized to exchange fish with me! And I absolutely love mine.

My Fish Kisser proudly owns and wears two of Janice's guppy pins too! The fabrics she uses and that eye and smile are just the cutest things to look at. When Fish Kisser isn't wearing them, they hang over her bed, on a photo of her kissing a fish. Janice makes the most adorable items!<3 her work!
