mer_mag I just started a round up on the blog called Playfully Made by You! where I share a handful of #playfultoysandcrafts you and your little ones have made from my book Playful, such as these sweet fair maiden and knight smocks made by @metacoleman_ 's Maja & Henrik. I love how they made them their own! See the blog for more spotlights including @nicolegerulat @apriljboyer & @jessicaeraso. and keep sharing and tagging your creations with #playfultoysandcrafts. You never know when I might feature you here, on the blog or my FB page. #wallpaperofdreams @metacoleman_ #playfulfairmaiden #playfulknights 5d

SO MANY IDEAS. You can sign up now and chose from two summer camps, one end of June and one end of July. All deets on the blog today (link in profile). But hurry because slots are filling up fast! Feel free to email me or ask any questions here. Oh my this is going to be fun!!!! #kidscraftcamp #hinterlandstudio #mermag #kidsart #kidscrafts #merillustration 1w

mer_mag You guys we're soooo close to finally having a shared studio space! (It's only been in the works for a year now ). And I'm happy to announce that I'll be holding a REAL LIFE local @kidscraftcamp here! (In Utah county) More on that soon but if you're interested now and want to be sure and reserve a spot for your little one (grades K-6) email me at Merrileeliddiard @ hotmail dot com. #kidscraftcamp #hinterlandstudio and of course the online @kidscraftcamp at @atly is always open to everyone everywhere 1w

mer_mag I learned a long time ago that you can't put in your order with kids - nor would you really want to. What they end up sharing with you about who they truly are is better than anything you could have schemed up. Skinned knees and all. But the fact that she loves books above all else, can sit and doodle on a page for minutes on end, holds her own with her brothers, will gladly go shopping with me and is a serious shoe fanatic - well that's pretty darn close to all my little girl dreams coming true. #dontworrythetenatioustwoskeepmeonmytoes #moretocome #butenjoyingthischapter #bigbrothersbed #thebanisterhouse 1w
