Here at Chicki we have been going crazy over paper toys. One of our favourite sites would have to be Dolly Oblong for her paper totem project.

Dolly Oblong is a crafty designer who creates cute quirky characters in all shapes and sizes, preferably while drinking tea and munching away cookies. The colourful world of Dolly Oblong is 100% handmade out of plush, paper and occasional bits of vinyl.

Go check out her site here – http://dollyoblong.blogspot.com/

We also got our copy of the book – We Are Paper Toy’s a few weeks ago and recommend it to everyone. It even comes with a disk full of super duper paper toys to create!

Tummie Friends

We are super excited to announce that the Tummie Friends are coming to Chicki! Tummie friends are a collection of yummy food plush created by Dutch illustration duo LouLou & Tummie.

Somewhere between ‘Chocovalley’ and ‘Bittercity’ lies a beautiful little mountain called Sugarhill.
This is the only place in the world where all kinds of sweets grow from plants, trees and bushes. It is possible you never heard of Sugarhill before or even of Chocovalley or Bittercity. Not a single person has ever been there…

The Sugarhill ‘like the name says,’ is a hill made of sugar and filled with joy. In the sky you will see the twinkling of colored stars and the cotton candy clouds slowly drifting by. The hill is grown with trees filled with candy blossom, bushes stuffed with sweets and you’ll see paths strewn with sprinkles.

 

This is the place where you can find Candy Sandie and all her friends growing, baking and harvesting sweetness while running into all kinds of adventures.

 

If you would like to find out more about SugarHill and the surrounding areas go check out their website – http://www.thetummiefriends.com.
