Mommy blogger Angie, who gives her 4 year old daughter the nickname Mayhem to preserve some anonymity, noticed early on that her daughter was into fashion far more than a typical toddler.

In attempt to restore order in her closets, Angie suggested that they make dresses together out of paper. Mayhem was hooked and still is 9 months later, which is an eternity in toddler time, leading us to believe this is more than just a phase. Angie started the hashtag #fashionbymayhem and has begun gathering a following of people who can’t wait to see what the two will come up with next. [Read more...]

While the definition of this work is unclear, the result is beautiful precision. [Read more...]

Did you ever have the childhood fantasy of building a great treehouse towering high above? If you did, and actually brought the fantasy into reality, your building may have been limited to just a few pieces of lumber and the house itself only lasted a few seasons.
