Awww man.  I’ve been trying to keep it looking a bit grown up and just a little less girly around here, but these sweet paper creations by Queensland based Kara Schiffer aka Lulu Lucky are totally pulling me back into cute ‘n crafty territory!  What can I say?  They were too fab.  I got excited.

Kara was a florist for a number of years, and is Mum to two young kids.  After the birth of her second child, amazingly, she found herself with some free time up her sleeve.  As luck would have it, she was blessed with an ‘angel baby’ who was/is particularly good at sleeping!  (Seriously, how does this happen, it seems 100% at odds with all information I have been given to date about babies / parenting!?)

Kara put this unexpected free time to good use – coming up with this sweet little collection of handcrafted paper goodies!  I am seriously loving the envelopes with string ties ad those fab ROSETTES.  Such a simple idea, and perfectly executed.

‘I love creating things that are simple but super pretty!’ says Kara. ‘I thought, why send your mail in a boring plain white envelope when you could send it in a beautifully coloured heavy card stock one? I guess what I like doing is making items that can usually be quite run of the mill something special.’

At the moment Kara is making a great variety of paper envelopes, rosettes, piñatas, Polish paper chandeliers, and garlands.  The Lulu Lucky webstore just launched today – brand new, get on it people!

    Cute and Crafty is perfect for a child’s room. I’ll have to bookmark this blog for when I redecorate my daughter’s room. I always surf the internet when I want new ideas. Simply Decorate, the Online Interior Design Service that I use has the best room designing tools i have ever seen. Even though I work for them, I can honestly say they make redecorating lots of fun.

    They are pretty, but I wouldnt bother trying to buy anything: I order some rosettes early October & put in a request for confirmation. I heard nothing, so used the website contact function to check status TWICE & have never heard back or received my order.
    Am about to start proceedings to get my more than $50 back.
