Baby room decorations: from drawing to wall sticker

I had so much fun drawing the picture below. I guess I especially loved it because it was made for my little one. For him to fall asleep dreaming of foxes fishing stars, sweet sleepy dragons and dogs driving cars.
The first picture shows the drawing that I made, the second one shows the result on the wall, after I had a sticker made from it. Husby helped to put the sticker on the wall, I am a total disaster when it comes to practical stuff like that. Love the result!
The white crib which also appears in the picture was made by our friend Chris (CCASS furniture), the beautiful (hand-made!) blanket was a present by a special friend and the stuffed toy was a funny thing that my mum and I did together. She did most of the sewing work, I did mainly the design and a few stitches here and there and the supervision of course ;)
If you like funny creatures as much as I do and you wish to have them on your wall just drop me a line, I would love to make a personalized magic world for your little one/s.

The Journal: Introduction

Time to introduce myself!
Here below an illustration that I have made for Bonbonblog (yes! I have a second blog: It describes (I hope it does?) who I am (a little bit of it at least) and how I came up with the label and webshop If you are fond of design give a look at it and feel free to shop around!.
Everything started with a request from my dear friend "Madame Bonbonblog" who's the actual (great) writer behind Bonbonblog: "Hey, we should write a post about you, so that customers can get to know who's behind Bonbonbox". She put down a nice list of questions which I should have nicely answered so that she could have written a nice post about me...Well, I ended up disregarding completely the questions (sorry dear!). Instead, I came up with the illustration below. I guess I love pencils more than pens. 
Madam Bonbonblog was able to write a nice post anyway (thank you!!!), which you can read here:

Have a colorful 2014

A new year, a new blog. Technically it is a bit late to wish "happy new year" but I strongly believe that later is better than never, plus Italian people always have a relative concept of time, so here you are! I wish you a colorful 2014, colorful as three Chinese dancing pandas.
Btw the pandas don't have a name yet. Any idea?
