Sharing is much more fun!

It's Mine! by Leo Leoni

Three selfish frogs live together on an island in the middle of Rainbow Pond. All day long they bicker: It’s mine! It’s mine! It’s mine! But a bad storm and a big brown toad help them realize that sharing is much more fun. With characteristic clarity, simplicity and exuberance, Leo Lionni makes it possible for kids to see themselves through the antics of others who share our world.
Leo Lionni is an artist, designer, sculptor and author of chldren's books. I love reading his stories and much more I love the illustrations. In this story he tells us about the benefits of sharing.
Here's some great animation I found on Vimeo: Cornelius (1986), Frederick (1986) 
 and Fish is Fish.

Being inspired by the book My Little 3 and Me by Emma is sharing a cute  Paper Plate Frog Mask

DIY neon brooch

This is a 5 month old makeover I had forgotten about. My father bought at a flee market for a euro (?) or less these vintage brooches. What else I could do with them, than to give them a fresh look with neon colours! It doesn't look like neon, but it is. It's just the filter effect from Instagram that changed the original colour...
