I spotted this cute bunny rucksack at Anthropologie last weekend and had to look it up to see what else was available. It’s made by Meri Meri who have a big range of accessories, partyware and baking supplies.

The backpacks are a little too small for adults but luckily they also have some matching pouches that are great for any age – how fun is this cat?

The patches, pins and brooches are worth a browse too for lots of cute designs including this sweet set of embroidered cats.

Most Wanted!, Things To Make

Most Wanted: Whipple Kits

Posted on March 31, 2017 by

If you’re a fan of fake food crafts, then chances are you probably already know about Whipple kits. If not, then you’re in for a real treat! Whipple kits make it very easy to decorate and enjoy cute food accessories like keychains and jewelry, especially if you’re not into creating your own parts with clay. Each kit comes with at least one bag of fake whipped cream (the “Whipple”) and a myriad of decorations to customize each piece. Here are a few of my favorites!

Whipple Kits

The Premiere Accessories set is one of the newest releases. The set includes supplies to turn your creations into things like a necklace, ring, and keychains. The metallic embellishments remind me of the Q-pot style!

Whipple Kits

If you’re a fan of the cute Sylvanian Families/Calico Critters toys, the Sylvanian Families set might be right up your alley. Just look at that bunny macaron!

Whipple Kits

Speaking of macarons, Whipple also makes an entire animal macaron set. It offers 4 cute critter cookies for you to decorate and turn into keychains. Can you tell I have a thing for animal-themed food?

Whipple Kits

The colorful deco sweets set includes a ton of different sweets and decorations to use, such as a 3D cookies and several cakes. What I really like about the larger Whipple sets is that they always come with so many things to assemble and decorate!

You can watch some of the Whipple kits being made on the HMS2 YouTube channel. My favorite thing to do with my completed Whipple pieces is to make them into keychain and bag charms. When the pieces are larger I always use them as cute decorative trinkets. They also make great props for larger dolls or plushes!

If you’re interested in viewing the other kits, Amazon Japan has the entire range available to browse through.

YML Group Strawberry Cat Bed Review

Posted on March 30, 2017 by

missmuffcake - YML group review

When it comes to cat related goodies I am always on the lookout for the latest and cutest stuff for Mady and Mortis. When YML Group offered to send the cats a strawberry house for review we all jumped up in excitement.

missmuffcake - YML group review

The bed came in a large flat box and wrapped in plastic. It was easy to pop up and get into shape and structured for hours of play. It is very roomy and accommodates plus sized kitties like Mortis (think small dog – 20 pounds). Once popped up the cats went to work on inspecting it.

missmuffcake - YML group review

Mady (around 10 pounds) can get in with plenty of room to stretch out. If you have two small kitties that like to cuddle they could easily do it in this strawberry hideaway.

While Mortis can easily fit inside he likes to sit in front of it and stand guard. It should be noted that Mortis’ fur attaches to everything but the material used in the strawberry bed is easily cleaned off with a lint roller.

The kitties like this new home and it brings a smile to my face. The stylish fruit beds are not only great for kitties but they add a touch of cuteness to any room you put them in. Now only if they came in human sizes!

YML group review

YML Group’s fruity pet beds are suitable for cats, dogs and other small animals and come in Strawberry, Pineapple and Banana designs from $59.99. Shipping within the 48 contiguous States of the USA only.
